An American Apocalypse is a Zombie story based deeply in the religious, mythical, and superstitious amalgam that is New Orleans. New Orleans was the center of the French, English, African and Native American cultures. Many of their beliefs became distorted and mixed over the years and created the Creole culture. The term Zombie came from the haitian-creole based cultures in the caribbean and is nothing like today's versions that are completely unintelligent brainless killing machines. That is a version introduced in 1968 by George A. Romero for his Night of the Living Dead franchise. The versions presented here are mystical zombies created by hoodoo mysticism.
