From Mummies to Zombies
From the Series Monster Mania
For centuries vampires have been known for sleeping in coffins and using their fangs to drink the blood of their victims. Ancient mummies were said to be cursed to come after the living. The earliest zombies rose from the dead because of curses or evil magic, but more recently are known for coming back to feed on human brains. These undead monsters and others have frightened people throughout history. They have also made their way into the books, movies, and games we love. Are the undead real or imaginary? Dig deep to learn the facts and fiction of undead monsters . . . if you dare!
