Zombies created by witch doctors are real. I watched a movie about one guy who survived the process without incurring serious brain damage, which appears to be both a side effect of the drug, and the method by which control is gained.
The drug is actually a puffer fish venom and datura. The person's heart beat and respiration nearly stop, and they become cold. They are buried and dug up by the witch doctor, who can then command them.
This stuff is real, and was researched by the guy who wrote The Serpent and the Rainbow.
