My mother-in-law just bought me a zombie ball and I wold like to know if there are any DVDs or books out there that teach the basic moves for the zombie. I've found a lot of videos of performances, but very little about source material. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In addition to the videos Chad referenced, with are both very good, I can recommend: "Al Schneider on Zombie" (Al Schneider), Dirk Losander's Zombie video, and both of Jeb Sherrill's "Zombie Reanimated" videos, and volume 3 of "McBride on Stage Magic."

There are also a number of wonderful books and booklets that you might want to check out. For starters: the section on the Zombie in Tommy Wonder's "Books of Wonder"; "Al Schneider on Zombie"; "Further Tips on Zombie" (Neil Foster); and "A La Zombie Plus" (Ian Adair).

Good luck in your study and practice. In the right hands, Zombie is a terrific trick. In the wrong hands (and there are lots of wrong hands out there), it's a bore or, worse, a disaster.

"Worlds Greatest Magic" also sells a DVD requiring a Zombie. Several magicians will give their comments.
