yes actually, yes he is. (or would proper English be 'was' because the movie is old and was already made or 'is' because he's not dead?)

It was because the duck was questioning too much >.>

Yes

If it wasn't for him, zombies would just be skeletons, none of that adorable rotting flesh they have today.

These folks appear Amish.

Actually, most of the less-advanced areas of the world still use horses and other livestock for transportation in rural areas, such as parts of India, China, Africa, and South america. (I mean no disrespect or slander to these people, I am merely noting a fact)

Also parts of Europe and North America due to either cultural reasons or economic.

I thought they were just Amish.

No, he did not. Sorry Sydneylove

You can trace back the modern idea for a zombie back to "I am Legend" (No not the movie) -__-

Hmm, I like how the boy he is talking to is getting older...:)

Actually, Xirbtt, Mattheson's short story "I Am Legend" is about a vampire apocalypse, not zombies. Obviously, being another type of undead, they have some traits in common. But the vampires in "I Am Legend" were clearly not zombies, considering they were reasonably intelligent and had classic vampire strengths and weaknesses.

I have heard that in Haiti, when voodoo culture held sway, a zombie was a live person put into a trance-like state where they would be very receptive to outside commands, but when carrying out these commands would have a shambling gait and be physically unresponsive and clumsy. He may have taken inspiration from these kinds of stories

He is certainly responsible for popularizing the Hollywood depiction of zombies, however

The idea of the zombie in movies goes back as far as the movie "White Zombie" from 1932, which was directed by Victor Halperin and starred Bela Lugosi. When George A. Romero first made Night of the Living Dead, his original intention was to bring back another movie monster, the Ghoul (and throughout the movie, they are called ghouls rather than zombies). It was mostly movie critics themselves that called them zombies, rather than ghouls, and in the end, Mr. Romero himself just accepted it, even though he himself prefers to use it for the Haitian Voudou depicted in White Zombie.

Sorry for replying to an old comic, but this is one of those things I'm a bit of a nerd about >3>
