It's time for the undead to rise up from their graves and have their day in the sun in the penultimate episode of our Horrorthon! Zombies are a cinematic tradition that go all the way back to the 1932 classic White Zombie, but the undead have been a staple of horror since the dawn of cinema itself, so if you want to be really clever you can claim that the origins of the zombie film stretch right back into the heart of the silent era. We'll be looking at all that and more as we follow the genre from its roots right through until modern-day overload, where the zombies are starting to become cuddly mainstream critters rather than grisly sociopolitical metaphors!

Horrorthon Episode contributors: John White (host), Mike Sutton, Rob Bayley, and Matt Shingleton

Here's a selection of trailers for just a handful of the titles we discuss:
