A zombie (Haitian French: zombi, Haitian Creole: zonbi) is afictional undead being created through the reanimation of a humancorpse. Zombies are most commonly found in horror and fantasy genreworks. The term comes from Haitian folklore, where a zombie is adead body reanimated through various methods, most commonly magic.Modern depictions of the reanimation of the dead do not necessarilyinvolve magic but often invoke science fictional methods such ascarriers, radiation, mental diseases, vectors, pathogens,scientific accidents, etc.[1][2]The English word "zombie" is firstrecorded in 1819, in a history of Brazil by the poet RobertSouthey, in the form of "zombi".[3] The Oxford English Dictionarygives the origin of the word as West African, and compares it tothe Kongo words nzambi (god) and zumbi (fetish).One of the firstbooks to expose Western culture to the concept of the voodoo zombiewas The Magic Island by W. B. Seabrook in 1929. This is thesensationalized account of a narrator who encounters voodoo cultsin Haiti and their resurrected thralls. Time claimed that the book"introduced 'zombi' into U.S. speech".[4]Zombies have a complexliterary heritage, with antecedents ranging from Richard Mathesonand H. P. Lovecraft to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein drawing onEuropean folklore of the undead. In 1932, Victor Halperin directedWhite Zombie, a horror film starring Bela Lugosi. Here zombies aredepicted as mindless, unthinking henchmen under the spell of anevil magician. Zombies, often still using this voodoo-inspiredrationale, were initially uncommon in cinema, but their appearancescontinued sporadically through the 1930s to the 1960s, with notablefilms including I Walked with a Zombie (1943) and Plan 9 from OuterSpace (1959).A new version of the zombie, distinct from thatdescribed in Haitian folklore, has also emerged in popular cultureduring the latter half of the twentieth century. This "zombie" istaken largely from George A. Romero's seminal film Night of theLiving Dead,[1] which was in turn partly inspired by RichardMatheson's 1954 novel I Am Legend.[5][6] The word zombie is notused in Night of the Living Dead but was applied later by fans.[7]The monsters in the film and its sequels, such as Dawn of the Deadand Day of the Dead, as well as its many inspired works, such asReturn of the Living Dead and Zombi 2, are usually hungry for humanflesh, although Return of the Living Dead introduced the popularconcept of zombies eating brains. The "zombie apocalypse" concept,in which the civilized world is brought low by a global zombieinfestation, became a staple of modern popular art.
