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.
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!
