Your zombie usually does not behave normally that resembles anything that was once human. Once mutation has occurred, it is easy to tell at first look that that risen zombie is no longer a living member of the human society. Its movement is generally slow with very poor skills and coordination. Its walk is clumsy and unbalanced. This is caused in part by the cellular decay of their nerves and tissue, and also the poor functioning of the portion of the brain that controls functions. Without control of their circulatory and other systems, the body begins to decay quite fast. This rapid decay occurs in all parts of the body including the eyes, leaving zombies with a very poor sense of sight. This makes them even

The History Channel’s presentation on the history of zombies provided a wealth of information that was both informative and entertaining. The origin of the zombie is far more than a simple fictitious story about shambling ghouls that pose little threat. Everything from the creation of zombies by viruses to the concept of a relentless horde that threatens the destruction of civilization has a basis in historic events (Zombies: A living History, 2011).
Zombies are the metaphor for the violence, fear, and atrocities of the modern world. These mindless creatures are the popular symbol representing the living dead; with their empty-headed behaviors and their oozing brains, they are the main contributor to the ever-developing market of science and fantasy that is without a glass ceiling. In today’s society, zombies can be considered the focal point of our fear-obsessed environment, literally and figuratively. However, this ever-expanding market has society curious purely based off of the inherent restrictions of the zombie population. When looking into all aspects surrounding the zombie culture, it becomes obvious that one cannot humanize a zombie; one cannot add depth and iconic
Zombies, as we know them today, have mortified movie viewers for the last forty six years. Modern zombies first appeared in George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead in 1968. These zombies were the slow moving, staggering ghouls that one has seen in countless films, but in 1985, Return of the Living Dead featured a new kind of zombie, the first fast moving and talking ghoul. Both Night of the Living dead 1968 and Return of the Living Dead 1985 feature the zombie as its villain, but Return of the living dead’s fast moving, talking zombies are a more modern take on the movie monster.

AHHHHhhhhhh........! Imagine being awakened by a soft, distance scream. Wide awake, the world returns to being silent except for a racing heartbeat. Suddenly, a soft resonating moan starts to fill the empty air of the bedroom. Looking out the window, the world is an eerie grey with nothing moving but the occasional garbage blowing in the wind. Suddenly the horizon begins to change as a crowd of people begin to emerge. Watching nervously, the figures get closer and turn into something much more menacing. They are all disease-invested, flesh-rotted, brain-hungry zombies! Where did these undead monsters come from? How do they survive? What
Ever since the first zombie movie was created in 1932, there has been a constant rise of zombie appearances in popular media. Like with all monsters, the majority of zombie media aimed to represent a certain aspect throughout the society in question. Whereas vampires represented romanticism and Dracula represented how a certain social group was viewed during a certain time period, zombies in Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead” aimed to create a situation whereby a group of people had to survive a night together, despite their racial tensions between one another. Being the founder of all subsequent zombie films, “Night of the Living Dead” provided a guideline for zombie behavior. As time passed, more and more versions of the zombie came out, whereby zombies stopped being a plot device and turned into the focus of the film itself. The Walking Dead, currently standing as the fourth most popular TV series, took a turn from this progression and decided to imitate Romero’s take on zombies. By including zombies which simply aimed to sustain themselves by consuming the flesh of the “live,” the creators of The Walking Dead caused the remaining survivors to gather together and rely on primitive human instinct to survive. Even though the zombies in this series run rampant, they play a very minimalistic metaphoric role. Instead, by presenting the zombies as a plot device, the characters in this series were able to demonstrate their true prejudiced view on society, ultimately revealing

The article “My Zombie, Myself: Why Modern Life Feels Rather Undead,” written by Chuck Klosterman, discusses the reasons behind zombies becoming so popular. Klosterman writes that rise of popularity of zombies is different than that of vampires. He states that most monsters are initially created as representations of fear. Similar to that of Frankenstein or vampires, Klosterman explains that zombies could be viewed in the same light; however, zombies are better explained as an allegory for our day to day existence. Rather than some innate fear, Klosterman highlights this fact to be why zombies have risen to such high popularity.
