Today’s collection is about one of the most dreaded enemies of the apocalyptic fiction – zombies. Even if you are not a fan of horror movies, this collection of free printable zombie coloring pages should be interesting enough to not scare you.
Zombies are undead – a dead body that regains some sort of life but for all other purposes are dead. They are believed to have originated from Haitian folklore where the dead come alive through magic, turning them into zombies.
Various literature, films, and other media have been inspired by zombies. Earlier versions followed the concept, where they are shown as creatures without thoughts and minds of their own brought to life by some magic. The modern version of flesh-eating zombies is thought to have come to light with Richard Matheson’s novel “I Am Legend” and George A. Romero’s film “Night Of The Living Dead”. The cult film was partly inspired by the novel, which dealt with creatures the author called vampires but, in all characteristics, resembled a zombie. If this has piqued your interest, then come along for this thrilling ride on this collection of zombie coloring sheets to print.
