Zombies Surface (Again) as Halloween Approaches
KPBS film critic Beth Accomando delves into the murky, quirky and downright scary world of zombie films.
Tom Fudge : With Halloween right around the corner, KPBS film critic Beth Accomando wanted to highlight a horror sub-genre that she's particularly fond of - the zombie film. Those lumbering, vacant-eyed undead have become a horror staple since the 1930s. And they seem to be gaining popularity with recent films such as "Shaun of the Dead."
