" Who shall conceive the horrors of my secret toil as I dabbled among the unhallowed damps of the grave or tortured the living animal to animate the lifeless clay? My limbs now tremble, and my eyes swim with the remembrance...I collected bones from charnel-houses and disturbed, with profane fingers, the tremendous secrets of the human frame...I kept my workshop of filthy creation; my eyeballs were starting from their sockets in attending to the details of my employment. "

In Australia alone is to be found the Grotesque, the Weird, the strange scribblings of Nature learning how to write. Some see no beauty in our trees without shade, our flowers without perfume, our birds who cannot fly, and our beasts who have not yet learned to walk on all fours. But the dweller in the wilderness acknowledges the subtle charm of this fantastic land of monstrosities. He becomes familiar with the beauty of loneliness. Whispered to by the myriad tongues of the wilderness, he learns the language of the barren and the uncouth, and can read the hieroglyphics of haggard gum-trees, blown into odd shapes, distorted with fierce hot winds, or cramped with cold nights, when the Southern Cross freezes in a cloudless sky of icy blue. The phantasmagoria of that wild dreamland termed the Bush interprets itself. ----

WhenSamuel Taylor Coleridge spoke of the 'suspension of disbelief' in his essay on imaginative poetry, I believe he knew that disbelief is not like a balloon, which may be suspended in the air with a minimum of effort; it is like a lead weight, which has to be hoisted with a clean jerk and held up by main force. Disbelief isn't light; it's heavy. The difference in sales between Arthur Hailey and H.P Lovecraft may exist because everyone believes in in cars and banks, but it takes a sophisticated and muscular intellectual act to believe, even for a little while, in Nyarlathotep, the blind faceless One, the howler in the night. And whenever I run into someone who expresses a feeling along the lines of, 'I don't read fantasy or go to any of those movies; none of it is real,' I feel a sympathy. They simply can't lift the weight of fantasy. The muscles of the imagination have grown too weak....Oh look! A girl in a Trasharama T-shirt!

inhabitants owe their existance in the western public's consciousness to Haitian Vodou or Vaudou (pronounced [vodu], a religion originating from the Caribbean country of Haiti (obviously), located on the island of Hispañola, based upon a mélange of beliefs and practices of West African peoples, (mainly the Fon and Ewe), and Roman Catholicism, which came about as African were brought as slaves to Haiti in the 16th century and forced to convert to the vile religion of their owners, whilst still followed their traditional African beliefs. There is evidence of zombie creation, although it is a phenomenon confined to the more rural Haitian culture, Such things fall under the auspices of the bokor or sorcerer rather than the priest of the Loa. Zombies became a popular device in modern horror fiction, largely due to the success of George A. Romero's 1968 B & W classic, Night of the Living Dead.

There are several possible etymologies of the word zombie. One possible origin is jumbie, the West Indian term for "ghost". Another is nzambi, the Bantu word meaning "spirit of a dead person." According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the etymology is from the Louisiana Creole or Haitian Creole zonbi, of Bantu origin. A zonbi is a person who is believed to have died and been brought back to life without speech or free will. It is akin to the Kimbundu nzúmbe ghost.

Throughout the Middle Ages, it was commonly believed that the souls of the dead could return to earth and haunt the living. The belief in revenants (someone who has returned from the dead) is well documented by contemporary European writers of the time, such as William of Newburgh and Walter Map. According to the Encyclopedia of Things that Never Were, particularly in France during the Middle Ages, the revenant rises from the dead usually to avenge some crime committed against the entity, most likely a murder. The revenant usually took on the form of an emaciated corpse or skeletal human figure, and wandered around graveyards at night. The "draugr" of medieval Norse mythology were also believed to be the corpses of warriors returned from the dead to attack the living. The zombie appears in several other cultures worldwide, including China, Japan, the Pacific, India, and the Native Americans.

"Vampires, ghouls, cannibalistic sewer monsters, mad scientists, zombies, evil spirits and 2 headed hell-hounds are horror. Knife welding psychopaths are splatter. A little girl who can start fires when she gets angry is horror. An arrow in the eye is splatter...Now I'm not saying splatter in no good, it's just very limited...Mexican killer bats, haunted watering-holes and werewolves are on ther way back."
--Rob Malone (1985)
