Zombies are one of the few Halloween monsters that can’t trace its legacy back to Europe somewhere. The legend of zombies actually started in Haiti, where voodoo was practiced. Practitioners of the voodoo religion believe that a special kind of voodoo magician can bring a newly deceased person back to life. Once restored to life, however, the person is no longer even a shadow of their former self. The person is now what is known as a zombie. A zombie is a brainless, unaware being that although they can walk and respond to stimuli, they seemingly have no soul. Believers in voodoo have been known to watch over and guard the bodies of the newly departed to prevent them from being turned into zombies. Once brought back to life, zombies seem to have only one mission—to satisfy an intense craving for human flesh, their favorite part being, of course, brains.
With all this mystical background, of course you are going to want to have several really freaky zombies around your house to scare the daylights out of your Halloween guests! These soulless beings have no brain but they certainly want yours!
