“When there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the Earth” (Romero). These words of the main character, Peter, in Dawn of the Dead mirror the situation taking place in the film. With zombies running amok throughout the country, four survivors hijack a traffic helicopter to escape and search for a place to barricade themselves. After landing at a shopping mall, they build themselves a make-shift apartment and overtake the mall, killing all the undead in their path. Homologous with America’s present economic and social culture, consumption is important to the survivors and the zombies.
I also know that there are plenty of ways to create a zombie like person. Like Neurotoxins, nanobots, cocaine psychosis and biological diseases. When it comes to the ways zombies could actually become a reality there are many. It seems since movies, video games and TV shows are so popular and have been for

It is 6:00 in the morning and overhearing that zombies are conquering the world. Immediately, it is time to pack and get ready for the zombie apocalypse. In order to make it, their is some common that will be needed to beat these disgusting creatures. A zombie apocalypse could happen anywhere; in the city, suburban area, or in the country.

Timmy gazed with affection and said, in a soft tone, “Its okay little buddy, I’m here and you are safe.” Butters looked up and still shaken said, “Timmy, I have an idea that may help us find a new place to live.” Timmy stuttered, “The sa-sa secret?” They looked at each other with worried glares over their faces. Timmy’s trust with the adults has diminished since the loss of his sister. After a fight broke out 7 months ago, zombies were attracted to the noise and broke through the fences. Timmy lost his sister that day along with 24 others. Just then, Mr.

Humankind has been familiar to zombie apocalypse scenarios for decades and probably centuries, but has neglected the actual possibility of one happening. In our surroundings, however, creatures are turned into will-less victims by extraordinary parasites and fungi. These take over their hosts’ bodies, and get them to commit actions unlikely for the species affected and use them as servants. Is it possible for these parasites and fungi to evolve and start affecting humans? One of the parasites responsible for action controlling a certain type of snails is the flatworm Leucochloridium Paradoxum.
