Keep your werewolves and vampires. Tell your lagoon creatures to “take a dip”. The zombie has always been my favourite monster. Looking for versatility? Zombies can be scary, gross, silly, tragic, and even romantic. Any story can be made better by adding a zombie (because you only need one). If you like a moral lesson attached to your monsters, zombies have a cautionary tale for everyone from super scientists to randy teens. Go Team Zombie!
