Format: Hardcover
The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia reviews 280 zombie movies from 2000-2010. The entire encyclopedia is sold in 2 volumes. This is Volume II and it is even longer than the first volume. While this 292-page book does review zombie films I have seen recently it is lacking in new material because many zombie lovers will already know this info. Dendle seems to know his zombie movies fairly well and the reviews are well-written. I'm not sure if Dendle loves zombies but this works as a good intro book for zombie film fans. Certainly he seemed more enthusiastic about classic zombie movies. There is an alphabetical listing of movies, plot descriptions, cast and crew info and budget info as well. The reviews contain some nuggets and trivia. The best part is that many obscure zombie films are featured. It is a decent book covering a short period but hardly the "encyclopedic" final word on zombies. No such book exists right now. Perhaps it works well for the time period involved (2000-2010) but this book should have been combined with Volume I to be truly comprehensive. It doesn't have any exclusive content or full-color pictures. There are so many zombie film books sold each year this one might get left behind. Zombie film review books probably outsell Roger Ebert movie guides so it's very competitive. It has managed to retain its value.

Here's what you've been waiting for, zombie fans!

This is volume 2 and covers 2000-2010 - the era of the resurrgence of the zombie genre.

Volume 2 functions the same as volume 1, listing movies (alphabetically), as well as short plot descriptions, director, cast, and even budget (for those searching for the truly low-budget zombie experience). You also get a review of the film, and often some tidbits of info and trivia.

It's a fun reference book, perfect for anyone who loves zombies and particularly perfect for those who want to venture away from mainstream zombies.

The Good: I enjoyed Dendle's 2nd volume of the Zombie Movie Encyclopedia much more than the first. Probably because it contained, almost totally, movies I'd already seen and for the most part, I agreed with his opinions on said movies. The book even included certain episodes from "Masters of Horror" that included zombies, in its shorts section.

The Bad: Hardcore zombie fans may find themselves lacking on new content, but this book would be perfect for anyone just getting into the genre.

I would have given this book four stars, but the author totally annoyed me by constantly, and I mean CONSTANTLY, using the term "cannibal zombies". As a long time fan of this genre, this is a stupid term. If zombie were cannibals, they would eat other zombies, not humans. While I found the information well done, the layout could have been a bit better, say a brief synopsis, then the authors somewhat verbose criticisms and in some cases a bit too much loving. A decent book, certainly a must for zombie fans, but it could have been a bit better. My main complaint may sound like nitpicking, but I'm sticking by it. This is a sequel to his first edition, which I have, but haven't read yet.
