I did find the book to be too long; so much of it was dedicated to synopses of films - indeed sometimes just lists of zombie filmography from an era before talking about how they intersect or correlate.

L'ho portato in bagno come lettura part time: Un due stelle fino alla fine. Sep 14, Michael rated it really liked it. Russell definitely knows his topic, and gives honest opinions of what he thought of the films.

I love the first 3 Romero movies and liked Land of the Dead , and enjoy quite a few other zombie movies, so I liked the book. I'll admit a horror blasphemy and say that I'm not the biggest fan of giallo, so the Italian sections of the book didn't do it for me, but there's a lot of great material here.

Apr 10, Kayleigh rated it really liked it. A fantastically detailed look at the evolution of the zombie from its Haitian origins up to its most recent cinematic features.

Jamie Russell distances himself enough to talk about the movies in terms of their technical and critical successes and favours, rather than simply talking about the ones he enjoyed the most, which i've found most other zombie film critics to do.

Lots of great movie stills and images of the movie posters. As a student doing my thesis on zombies in film this book will be A fantastically detailed look at the evolution of the zombie from its Haitian origins up to its most recent cinematic features.

As a student doing my thesis on zombies in film this book will be indispensible, but it's interesting and entertaining enough to be read by a zombie enthusiast also Aug 23, Wendeline Wright rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Given to me as a birthday present this year from a mate, this book is an extremely well-researched and cohesive text dealing with the history of zombie cinema.

Perhaps a bit too derisive of some of the films involved--a love of zombie cinema is not, perhaps, overly evident in some cases--but absolutely essential for any zombie film scholar.

Probably quite close to any book I'd have ever written. Jan 20, Peter rated it liked it Shelves: This book does a really good job tracking and explaining the zombie movie phenomenon.

Probably best of all it puts everything into context from the 's American interest in Haitian investments that gave rise to the cultural exploration of voodoo to the George Romero zombie of the late 60's.

The book is very comprehensive with photos and even an encyclopedia of zombie movies in the appendix. I'd recommend this book for anyone with an interest in learning more about history of the zombie.

Sep 10, Angie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I'm currently in the process of writing an honors thesis on the socio-political messages in zombie films, and this book is the source I most turn to.

Russell's writing is interesting and intelligent, and the book itself is a joy to read simply for pleasure. The insightful analysis of the films has proved most helpful in conjunction with my own interpretations, and it was most certainly worth the money I paid for it.

An indespensible book for anyone interested in zombie films. Aug 28, James rated it it was amazing. Feb 16, Eli rated it it was amazing.

Jamie Russell does a fantastic job covering the entire history of zombie cinema, from Romero to Fulci. It covers everything perfectly, and doesn't hesitate to point out the various stinkers that inhabit this fine genre of film.

Any fan of zombie cinema should crack an egg of knowledge on themselves with this book. Jan 29, Nora rated it it was amazing Shelves: It covers all angles, from the inherent philosophical underpinnings and social commentaries, down to the raw gore factors.

FAB , - Performing Arts - pages. From 's White Zombie to 28 Days Later and the current crop of Japanese shockers, the zombie movie has been one of the most enduring mainstays of international horror cinema.

In the new introduction Russell makes plain his surprise at how zombies gained such massive popularity again in the mid's which the first edition, published in , missed out on entirely.

As such, chapter eight the final chapter of the first edition gets reworked and Russell adds a further seven chapters to bring things right up to date, covering everything from zombie parody to zombie pornography, a A very welcome revised and updated edition, with a considerable amount of new material.

As such, chapter eight the final chapter of the first edition gets reworked and Russell adds a further seven chapters to bring things right up to date, covering everything from zombie parody to zombie pornography, as well as an interview with George A.

The book itself, now printed by Titan Books - despite being of a much nicer physical quality - suffers a little due to the absence of many of the film stills and movie posters present in the first edition.

It's a minor grumble though, only really valid to those with access to the original. Aside from this, my original review still stands, including being somewhat frustrated by Russell's insistence on making subjective commentary from time to time, which I don't feel is particularly necessary or welcome in a resource such as this.

If you're an old-school fan, or just curious and want to delve a little deeper into the genre, I highly recommend this edition.

Feb 02, Stuart Vernon rated it really liked it. This book is brilliant and i'm glad I bought it.

This is my go-to zombie encyclopedia. Thorough, in depth and highlights a ton of movies I'd never heard of. It needs a revised as it's a little dated.

The last few years have seen a ton of new zombies flicks that could benefit from the author's review. Jun 04, Perry rated it it was ok.

Would be a 2. Beyond some discussion of zombie porno and Fulci's artistic inspirations, there isn't a ton that's really standout or phenomenal here.

Feels weirdly dismissive and meanspirited at times too in a way that took me out of it. In his REC review, Russell belabors the political elements; I suspect very few fans of REC love the found-footage zombie flick because it bashes the Catholic church, but Russell goes on and on about it, like he's been looking for an excuse to do so and here it is, so he's running with it.

Similarly, his obvious hatred of George W. Bush starts to get ridiculous he sneers that Bush's "scriptwriters" provided an answer to a rhetorical question, as if no other president giving a State of the Union speech ever used a script.

If the above paragraph had you rolling your eyes, you got my point. I'd feel the same were the target Clinton or Obama. There's nothing wrong with political material in a film book when trying to link real-world events to cinematic responses, but it seems so forced here.

My favorite feature of the book is the filmography. It is over pages long and includes brief summaries and comments on hundreds of zombie films.

Russell's critiques are short, sharp and to the point, showing why he picked this film for inclusion historical value to the development of the genre, excellence on a low budget, etc.

A fun, absorbing read that could have been better, but so what? If you agree with Russell's political views you'll probably enjoy yet more print spent bashing the right and praising the left as the only possible viewpoint for an intelligent person, so have at it.

For anyone else, the political stuff can be skimmed, which was my solution after the ninth reiteration of how evil George W. May 25, Jon rated it it was amazing.

There's something utterly endearing about the zombie. The concept taps into a collective primal fear of death that we all share in one way or another, and it gives that fear teeth - often behind the faces of those we know and love.

Book of the Dead is, undoubtedly, a real labour of love. Jamie Russell has done an exceptional job with this substantial volume; chronicling the history of the zombie movie right from its Haitian origins and arrival in the western world in the early twentieth century, There's something utterly endearing about the zombie.

The book is also filled to the brim with movie-stills and theatrical posters, which really help to capture the essence of each era. The book concludes with an exhaustive filmography, including a brief summary of each movie.

My only real gripe is that the filmography is a little too subjectively written; Russell makes it very clear which movies he loves and hates throughout this list, which I found slightly unnecessary.

For zombie movie enthusiasts this book is an absolutely essential, comprehensive resource. Nov 20, Nicholas rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Hold on to yer' hats kiddies.

Russel's approach is somewhere between the historian and the scholar, essentially fusing the two and proving himself to be both simultaneously. Very nice critical analysis and the book's "up to the minute of publishing" he discusses the Hold on to yer' hats kiddies.

Very nice critical analysis and the book's "up to the minute of publishing" he discusses the Dawn of the Dead remake, Shaun of the Dead, 28 days later, etc.

He covers it ALL - from the origins to the cotemporary milieu. Nothing even remotely "zombie" is ignored. A comprehensive look at zombie cinema. Most interesting when exploring eras of zombies in film.

I was captivated learning the origin of zombie lore, and it was fascinating seeing links between zombie flicks as social commentary on sociopolitical fears of each generation.
