WIN 1 of 3 COPIES OF ZOMBIES: A LIVING HISTORY ON DVD
To celebrate the UK DVD release today, three lucky winners will each win a copy of the The History Channel’s documentary ZOMBIES: A LIVING HISTORY on DVD.
Horror fans will relish this zombie fest. A fascinating look at a subject that refuses to die.
Most people believe zombies are a recent phenomenon that grew out of comic books, movies and TV. The truth is very different. This HISTORY special explores the real story of zombies beginning at the dawn of civilisation and continuing right through to today. The first written reference to zombies can be found in the Epic of Gilgamesh, mankind’s oldest work of literature. A look at both the old and new testaments of The Bible reveal numerous stories of the undead. We’ll detail how Europe’s Black Plague became one of the most prolific periods for myths and legends about zombies and find out why Viking legends believed zombies were nearly indestructible, except by decapitation or immolation.
Take a look at the history of the zombie, from its original routes in the Haitian voodoo religion through to the popular culture’s ultimate zombie offering George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. Examine other zombie legends from around the world, including secret stories of China’s Terracotta Warriors and the voodoo rituals of Haiti. See how modern science added a whole new twist on zombies beginning with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
The History Channel’s ZOMBIES – A LIVING HISTORY is released on DVD on July 23rd 2012 and is available to order now at Amazon
