Back in 1950, before Zombie movies and their ilk had had a whiff of mainstream, C.S Lewis gave us a quote that would make all zombie hunters proud:

“But in general, take my advice, when you meet anything that’s going to be human and isn’t yet, or used to be human once and isn’t now, or ought to be human and isn’t, you keep your eyes on it and feel for your hatchet.”

Mr Beaver, The Lion and the Witch and the Wardrobe, C.S. Lewis 1950.
