well you cant raise the dead but in the voodoo cultures there are ways to poison someone to force them into a zombie state where they do what you want them to and they have no control but to listen to you however these effects are temporary are only last while a specific toxin is given to said person or if you mentally manipulate them into being your zombie slave then the effects are there as long as the specified stimulus is given but the above is a cruel thing to do to someone and I highly advise that you not do anything of the sort

The concept of necromancy based magick of raising the dead isn't possible for multiple reasons the main being the body has no consciousness to animate it. For example just a short time without oxygen can result in permanent brain damage so you can see how those who have died would no longer have a functioning brain to control their body. Of course that's a moot point as before the brain comes into play you would have to have some spark of life in the body which cannot be restored not to mention the concept of a soul, though I know some do not believe in a soul.
Not to mention the fact that the dead body is often filled with formaldehyde or embalming fluid to slow down the decaying process of the body. The living dead come from the fact that people were once berried before they were actually dead. They would come out of a coma and dig out of there graves.
