3. FIELD ZOMBIE Undead, Zombie
"No, my friend, no, no. There are only too many true cases. At this very moment, in the moonlight, there are zombies working on this island, less than two hours' ride from my own habitation. We know about them, but we do not dare to interfere so long as our own dead are left unmolested. If you will ride with me tomorrow night, yes, I will show you dead men working in the cane fields."
-W.B. Seabrook, The Magic Island, 1929
Seabrook's book, detailing his experiences with voodoo in Haiti, was a huge hit in its day, and introduced the term "zombie" into the American vocabulary. It served as the inspiration for classic movies like White Zombie (1932) and I Walked With A Zombie (1943), as well as turkeys like Zombies On Broadway (1945). Then the popularity of the zombie went into decline, until George Romero gave them a modern, flesh-eating make-over in 1968's Night Of The Living Dead; and the rest is history. With this sets' Caribbean setting, I thought it would be cool to return to the original concept of the zombie: a hapless corpse raised from the dead to toil on behalf of an evil sorcerer. The miniature of this monster would depict a lean, shirtless man in tattered pants, a machete held in one hand. It would have a blank expression, with it's mouth sewn shut- tasting salt breaks the curse and allows zombies to remember their previous life...
