Does anyone know the difference between zombies and ghouls?


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Depends on the setting and rules, but if we talk origin then Ghouls are from Arabic folklore and they eat corpses, Zombies are from Haiti (?) and they are eating the living. So basically they differ in diet.

So ghouls are vegan zombies? Aren't they corpses also? Do they eat each other?

As far as I remember ghouls are not reanimated corpses, but rather a race of demons.

As I recall, the ghūl in the Arabic tradition was a shapchanging Jinn who, usually in the guise of a pretty woman, would meet travelers and when they'd dropped their guards, kill and eat them.

I don't think zombies ate people before Romero. I want to say they were just like flesh puppets or something similar

IDK, there were enough pulp comics back in the day about the undead. At least one of those reanimated corpses had to have taken a bite out of someone.

Most early comic book zombies existed as instruments of vengence and typically just killed (or were like the will-less living dead). I seem to recall reading at least one comic story from the 1950s where there was implied cannibalism from the undead, but without going and reading a bunch of horror comics again, I can't confirm. 

That said, if memory serves me Ishtar threatens to raise the dead and send them to eat the populace in Gilgamesh. If that is correct, the idea has been percolating around for awhile but Romero really brought it home.

Well, cannibalism and the undead are mentioned in the same sentence within the comic book code. There's probably a correlation, I mean Romero's definitively a pioneer when it comes to zombies in film but this stuff was probably done before.

The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

with any other President, one would think we were linking an onion article.

HA! Good Fun!
