The world’s fascination with the monster known collectively as a zombie continues to grow, with movies, television serials, novels, comics, video games, and other media forms creating new and distinct types of this creature. This continued fascination perhaps can be explained by our modern, technology-driven world. One definition of “zombie” is “a person whose behavior or responses are wooden, listless, or seemingly rote.” If you have ever watched today’s teens in a group setting, with very few interacting with each other and most self-absorbed with their electronics, the term “zombie” seems most apropos.
As more and more creative people explore the world of the zombie, more and more types of zombies have begun to emerge. This list chronicles just five types of zombies. These types are perhaps the most popular or most used types of zombies.
