Let’s face it, the love of zombies is often really just a love of the movies. Ok, sure, it’s also a love of the makeup and show and costumes and the thrill of being scared, but most of us experience zombies for the first time either on the big screen in the theater or on the small screen at home. For me it wasn’t even the movies, it was the ads for the movies. There was an ad for Return of the Living Dead in which Tarman looks up at the camera and says, “Mooooore Braiiiinssss.” That just freaked me the hell out. These days the real thrill comes in turning out the lights, leaving the door to the room open behind me and just falling into the story as best I can.
