  1. I have always found it especially amusing how Romero’s “ghouls” are the EXACT opposite of Haitian zombies, which are submissive and obedient vegetarians . . . .

  2. Are they vegetarians? – I thought they just weren’t allowed to eat salt, but maybe it’s meat too- I’ll have to check. Not that it matters really ; )

    But yes, the differences are amusing. I find it amusing that so many people get a bee in their bonnet about 28 Days later not being a zombie flick when Romero’s film wasn’t either if you want to be blindly nit picky about definitions. Like I said, the whole genre is a hybrid. Why it’s fascinating. Glad to see someone was listening, it’s always nice to have comments.


  3. You’re right- no salt or meat- as in Seabrook’s story in the Magic Island….

  4. Not bad! 😉 We have Zombiefest in Lincoln this weekend so it was a nice way to get jazzed up for the whole thing.

    Shared with the ZRS Omaha group as well. Thanks guys!
