(edit: with the 'infection zombies' there's a discussion to be had about whether they're dead or not and whether they count as zombies. I've decided that 28 Days Later is a zombie flick ... but it's true that others may consider World War Z to be the first real 'fast zombie' film)

  1. I am re-posting this from Reddit.com/r/fantasy:

    In the 1957 film, "Zombies of Mora Tau," the zombies are not slaves and have no master controlling them — they are not "magically animated." They are undead beings (the dead crew of a sunken ship) apparently as a result of a curse. I think this is the first example of "masterless" zombies in the movies. The zombies were protecting the contents of the sunken ship, so the idea of guardian zombies may be a first here as well.
