ambulothanatophobia

Just in case they "clean up" my article on ambulothanatophobia:

 

Ambulothanatophobia or sometimes ambulonecrophobia is an irrational fear of zombies (i.e., "the walking dead"). The term is derived from the Latin ambulāns (to walk) and Thanatos (θάνατος: "death") the Greek personification of death.

 

Ambulothanatophobia is not to be confused with necrophobia (the irrational fear of death and dead things). While the latter is sometimes used in reference to fears of "dead" things more generally, ambulothanatophobia localizes the fear on reanimated corpses without unnecessarily extending it to one's own personal death, for example.
