User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

Very, very comprehensive. I will definitely use this to add more zombie movies to my Netflix queue. And I loved seeing that, for the analysis and commentary, Russell used some of the same sources I used in my own thesis. Will keep this on my shelf for years to come. Read full review
