The horror film The White Zombie was credited as the first zombie movie. In this movie, they used the proper origin of the real zombie; however, in movies and tv shows following it, they weren’t so accurate. In the more recent films, zombies come about because of a pandemic. A pandemic is a widespread disease across a country or the world. In George Romero’s movie Night of the Living Dead the audience saw the people being brought to life as zombies.
There is no coincidence that the first zombie movie was made in 1932 (Aizenberg), right in the middle of the great depression. Again, zombies reveal something about the societies that created them. The society that originally created “American zombies,” was a society that was in the middle of the great depression. A society that was scared, power-less, and far from abundant. With fear and anxiety from the great depression instilled into early 20th century Americans, this is a society that falls right into the hands of these undead, flesh eating monsters when put in the right position.
Zombie-themed film is a unique film, generally show the way of zombie 's life that is their hobby to eat the part of human body. Two example from the many zombie-themed films is "Warm Bodies" and "I Zombie". Warm Bodies based on the novel by Isaac Marion, starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer. Warm Bodies produced by Jonathan Levine and release in 2013. I Zombie adapted from a comic book created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, starring Rose Mclver and Malcolm Goodwin.
Zombies truly are the absolute pinnacle of human creation, imbued with many endearing attributes. Recently, it has surfaced that society has an ingrained fascination with these friendly ghouls, which has infected popular culture. But surely this media is just fictitious entertainment and is not truly literature. However, in World War Z and The Walking Dead, where zombies are depicted as undead beings with an affinity for flesh and brains, the zombie apocalypse is used to criticise humanity’s faults and foibles. The media industry has fed society’s hunger for the simulation of a desolated world, overrun with zombies, with the exception of a typically handsome protagonist.
Except for vampire, zombie is another popular theme in the big screen or TV shows, like Resident Evil, The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, etc. Zombies embody people’s great fear or anxiety about the future because we’re living in the very uncertain times with plenty of terrorist attacks, climate changing and natural disasters. While worrying about what will happen in the future, people still think about how to survive if the apocalypse really comes. Then it is easy to explain the big success of The Walking Dead, for it exhibits how people would act in a survivalist situation. On the other hand, zombie is the reflection of ourselves; for example, James Parker states that “here zombiedom seems to germinate through a fog of hangovers, Monday television, lapses in conversation” (345).
After all the events above occur, the second play begins with Orestes at his father’s grave with Electra. He tells his sister “Apollo’s great strong oracle shall not forsake me now. It told me to accept this challenge, loudly cheered me on, warmed the gall in me with dire predictions.” This means that Apollo, Greek god of the sun, was able to persuade Orestes to avenge Agamemnon’s death by pursuing the quest to kill his mother. In Ghosts of Theatre and Cinema in the Brain by Mark Pizzato, it is stated that we all have unconscious “zombies” in our neurological pathways that are “perfectly alert and capable of making complex, skilled movements” (Pizzato 56). I believe that Orestes had unconsciously wanted to kill his mother to avenge his father’s death for many years.
Therefore I would place Dr. Hannibal Lecter on a level 18 of 22. Level 18, labeled “Torturing Murders”, is defined as applying to those who are primarily motivated by murder and not torture. When they do torture they do not prolong it. I placed him on this level since his fundamental objective is to eat his victims and not to torture
I was 23 and the year was 2020 and the zombie apocalypse just started. How did it start you ask? I’ll get to that later but my base was attacked by zombies and other survivors and I was the only one who survived. I helped stop the zombie apocalypse by creating a vaccine. I learned that day that I was very important to the world.
Standing with his back to me was my friend Joey; I called out to him, but when he turned I saw the horrifying face of the undead. He ran towards me, carrion falling from his body. At that moment I knew that the Zombie Apocalypse had come; luckily, I had prepared for this day, and had a stash of supplies in the physics
