Gothic Zombie, is a living corpse act like a puppet, that controlled by its creator - the master. The roots of the zombies can be trace to the voodoo religon, Which through a specific ritual the shamans awake dead people from the depths of graves. They have very limited intelligence and all their essence is to eat human flesh or better - living brains, they also act like an army and obey the master what created them.
Zombies are empty form the inside out as William B. Seabrook describe them in his book The Magic Island: "The eyes were the worst. It was not my imagination. They were in truth like the eyes of a dead man, not blind, but staring, unfocused, unseeing. The whole face, for that matter, was bad enough. It was vacant, as if there was nothing behind it. It seemed not only expressionless, but incapable of expression."
Some try to explaine the gothic zombie phenomenon as a folkore. Its was claimed that when a person caught in a criminal act he got the punishment of being zombie. Basically it was nothing than being a slave that had to do a hard physical works. But, in order to prevent mutiny they use special drug powder that made him weak and gave him the look of a living dead.
