From most accounts World War Z is more action flick than horror movie so we thought we’d take a quick look back at the “Evolution of the Zombie” from 1932’s White Zombie all the way up to today’s offerings like WWZ and Warm Bodies.
The below video was compiled by Film.com, and from slow and shambling to insanely fast and everything in-between, it shows how Hollywood’s favorite horror movie monster has changed throughout the years. Along with the films mentioned above, represented here are such classics as Night of the Living Dead (1968), Zombie (1979), Return of the Living Dead (1985), Cemetery Man (1994), Shaun of the Dead (2004), and Zombieland (2009) along with many others. It’s a sweet walk down memory lane for us fans of the undead.
