ZOMBIES INVADE NATIONAL FILM ARCHIVES!

The Library of Congress announced today that Michael Jackson’s groundbreaking zombie video, Thriller, will be added to the National Film Registry for 2009.

The Registry preserves up to 25 culturally, and/or historically significant films each year, showcasing the range and diversity of American film to increase awareness for its preservation.

Thankfully, Jackson’s dancing zombies aren’t the only undead to be preserved.  George Romero’s classic, Night of the Living Dead, was added the the list in 1999.

Congratulation’s to the King of Pop for making the cut, and a big thumbs up to Romero, the creator of the modern zombie, for getting it all started.
