I'm currently developing a story about zombies and I neded some feedback. In the Romero films, the Zombies return to places that are important to them. My friend seems to think that this idea first came up in the "I am Legend" novel. (yes, they're vampies, but zombie like..) My question is this, is the idea of returning to a place specific to one creator, or is this accpted Zombie "lore" at this point?
Any thoughts or examples of this showing up in other movies/books would be great.---Mike
