Format: Paperback
This book is informative and well written, as well as a little bit cheeky - some of the comments had me laughing. It is a very well researched and thought about book and covers almost all zombie-related products to date. It's full of movie-stills and posters and will tell any reader of almost everything you may need to know about zombies (except how to avoid being turned into one!) If you need to know about zombies, this is the only book you need!

The perfect purchase for any serious fan of the zombie genre. Covering the history of the living dead, from folklore and literature to their shambling, lurching portrayal on the silver screen- also including the world of video games. Succinctly written, with plenty of worthy comment and analysis, plus a generous collection of great movie stills, poster reproductions and illustrations... Excellent!

Not very good. I'm doing my dissertation on the Zombie Apocalypse in popular culture and this proved to be totally useless.

HASH(0x970c4edc) out of 5 stars Simplistic and one dimensional look at one of the Horror's most beloved subgenres 23 Aug. 2009
By James Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Zombie Holocaust" attempts to review and analyze the genre of the Living Dead and it's relations such as mummies and infected people and ends up falling very short.

The author fails to bring any personality to the project and is only able to project an annoying personal bias which torpedoes many of this book's intentions. While he clearly loves the work of George A. Romero he seldom relishes anything else as even a guilty pleasure. Practically everything made pre-1970 is panned which makes the author look sort of boring as he seems to only have a preference for gore and little atmosphere.(His panning of the classic, "The Mummy(1932)" is his most simple observation).

The book is loaded with terrific pictures and many aspects of the broad and quickly growing genre of Terror cinema but this book is not up to the task of analyzing and reviewing it's social and cultural impact and instead comes off as a nearly two hundred page rant.

Very easy to skip this book, zombie fans.

HASH(0x970c5038) out of 5 stars Broad scope, no depth 8 July 2009
By Adryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For my purposes, I found this book quite disappointing. While it lists and briefly summarizes an impressive scope of zombie films and other artifacts, the few insights this catalog provides are undefended personal preferences. Flint fails to establish his own criteria or to consider what goals the reader might have. Zombie fanatics who wish to ensure they've covered the field might find this a useful guide, but if you're looking for critical thinking on the topic, this is not that book.

HASH(0x974bc354) out of 5 stars This Book Left Me Hungry For More. 10 July 2009
By Laura Henri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I dig zombies, dig them right up out of the ground and watch them shuffle about on my plane of existence and I never want them to stop entertaining me. I would even give them a bit of a nibble if it meant more time with the putrescent. So when this book fell into my hands I thought I had come into possession of a good reference book, Zombies in pop culture, how keen.
I was completely disappointed, this was less a book about how zombies infiltrated our culture, whether in films, music, books or merchandise and more the author's personal likes and dislikes when it came to zombies in those genres. He leaves so much out, and puts so much of his own opinions in. He tells what movies are good, and what are bad, his own opinions, not allowing for his readers preferences or even being objective. It's "The movie Fido Sucked" and that is all, never mentioning the awards it got and the following it gained.
If I wanted to read his opinions only, I wouldn't have picked up the book. I thought it was going to be a go to guide to Zombies in pop culture, I thought I would be able to get a clear concise picture as to where exactly they have bitten into and finally a list as a go-to guide of "wow I need to see/read/buy that!" This book, dear dead lovers isn't what it appears to be. The brains have already been eaten, try somewhere else!
