Seeing a similar post on the internet a little while ago, we decided to compose this overview of the evolution of title screens in zombie movies.

As you may or may not know, the history of zombie movies is quite rich, reaching all the way to the 20’s.

One of the first “major” movies was I Walked With a Zombie by Jacques Tourneur in 1943.

Plot:

A young Canadian nurse  comes to the West Indies to care for the wife of a plantation manager which seems to be suffering from a kind of mental paralysis as a result of fever.

You all know how everything changed with George A. Romero and his Night of The Living Dead in 1968.

Plot:

The radiation from a fallen satellite might have caused the recently deceased to rise from the grave and seek the living to use as food. This is the situation that a group of people penned up in an old farmhouse must deal with.

Then came The Crazies in 1973., also directed by George Romero.

Plot:

The military attempts to contain a manmade combat virus that causes death and permanent insanity in those infected, as it overtakes a small Pennsylvania town.

Possibly the biggest hit was George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead in 1979.

Plot:

Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia SWAT team members, a traffic reporter, and his television-executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.

Then in 1981. came  the classical the Evil Dead by Sam Raimi which resulted in two more sequels, Evil Dead 2 (1987.) and Army Of Darkness (1993.)
