Technically zombies were real. They still practice it to this day. There is a movie based on true events and it takes place in africa i believe. They would blow a powdery substance into the face of an individual. Eventually that individual would die and would be buried. A few days later, they'd find the individual roaming around the city without any intelligence or ability to speak/recognize people, or they would catch them digging themselves out of the grave.
"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."
Haitian zombies were once normal people, but underwent zombification by a "bokor" or voodoo sorcerer, through spell or potion. The victim then dies and becomes a mindless automaton, incapable of remembering the past, unable to recognise loved ones and doomed to a life of miserable toil under the will of the zombie master.
