If you happen to be something of a seriously rabid fan (when it comes to the likes of zombie movies) - This well-researched, pictorial "history-book-of-the-undead" is sure to be of some significant interest to you.

Faithfully covering 80 years (1930-2010) of the walking dead in cinema - Author, Jovanka Vuckovic offers the insatiably ravenous reader an in-depth look at how zombie-mania has escalated (since the mid-1960s) into a literal feeding-frenzy of films depicting flesh-eating creatures that virtually leaves nothing to the imagination.

Featuring lots of gruesome stills of blood-splattered mayhem - I'd definitely say that, if nothing else, this glossy volume is certainly worth its weight in undigested body parts.

*Note* - This book also includes a brief, but informative history of zombies in the real world long before they had ever made their cadaverous entrance onto the sliver screen and into your darkest nightmares.
