Tread of the Dead

From outlines on pavement in chalk
the dead will get up for a walk
They're taking a stroll
with vengeance their goal
Their murderers, stiffly, they stalk

Scientist Boris Karloff is murdered, revived, and seeks revenge as The Walking Dead (1936), long before the current zombie comic book and television series of (almost) the same name. Also pictured: Edmund Gwenn and Marguerite Churchill. Image source: The Boris Karloff Collection.
