What Is a Zombie?
Zombies are once-human creatures that are hungry for meat, human meat that is, and are often particularly interested in eating brains. Sometimes a cause is given for their condition but other times there is no explanation. When a cause is given, it is often tied to the end of civilization or a zombie apocalypse.
Zombies are so popular now that they can be considered their own genre of horror movie.
The first largely successful zombie movie was Night of the Living Dead and zombie movies continue to be released in a regular fashion. One example of a fairly recent and extremely popular moviethat has a cult-like following is Zombieland.
Wikipedia calls the word zombie a word that refers to corpses that have come back to life via a mystical manner. They go on to add that zombie can also refer to someone who is not aware of their surroundings...
WikiAnswers calls zombie a creature that is undead or that has come back to life after being dead and that appears in movies, books and games.
The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse summed it up a bit differently by saying that if it looks and acts like a zombie and it is not something else then it is a zombie...
