Zombies have been around in the culture of Haiti for a long time. This may have started out in the 17th century, and it has slowly spread out to the rest of the world. It took longer for the people in the US to know more about zombies. The first-ever zombie movie was released in the year 1932.
Even before that, the first book about zombies that became popular in the US is called, “The Magic Island.” This is a book by William Seabrook. This is a concept that people were interested in, but it was being overpowered by other characters such as Dracula and Frankenstein. It was when the booking form of The Night of the Living Dead was released that made more people gain a more profound interest in zombies.
Zombies are all the rage these days. From video games to movies and television shows, people can't seem to get enough of the walking dead, so to speak. Who introduced the concept through?George Romero was the author of the book "Night of the Living Dead" that brought zombie right into our living room when a movie with the same name was written by him too. Between the move and the book, zombies became very popular.
They are now the subject of many shows and books and are topics of everyday conversations too. It is interesting to wonder if George Romero had a clue what he was started when he dreamed zombies up and presented them to the world.
