Little Rock native Chris Dumas — author of “Un-American Psycho: Brian De Palma and the Political Invisible” and a musician who’s performed in Reagan’s Polyp, T.C. & the Eddies and The Astronaut Body Four (and son of Times columnist Ernest Dumas) — is among the zombie experts on a new series from AMC, “Eli Roth’s History of Horror,” which premiered Sunday, Oct. 14.

Cable subscribers: Sign in at amc.com to watch the full episode, and keep an eye out for future Dumas cameos.

Correction: A previous version of this article cited incorrectly that Dumas had performed with The Pine Box Boys and Bitter Fruit. Dumas was road manager for The Pine Box Boys and a producer/engineer for Bitter Fruit.
