Description

From White Zombie in 1932 to Night of the Living Dead in 1967 the history of the idea of the Zombie (they were called "ghouls" in the original 'Night of the Living Dead') has its roots in pre-revolution Haiti. Many of these more modern movies use the imagery of the walking undead to represent more than just scary brain eating monsters. From being a proxy for capitalisms creation of the mindless consumer, to the reality of climate change these movies aren't just jump scares and gore. We'll talk their history, hidden meaning and more with professor of film at the University of California Irvine, Catherine Liu.
