Like Birch-Bayley states, zombies act as the standard for western culture 's "crisis mentality" (1137) to express these anxieties. This fear is also reflected in the plot of The Walking Dead when the survivors are fearing for their lives that they will become a zombie as well. They try to do anything they can to prevent the zombie outbreak from getting worse, even if it means killing their own family or friends. This is seen when Jim had to kill his own family because they turned into zombies and were attacking the survivors. His decision to kill those closest to him in order to save himself and the remaining survivors shows how we will do anything to stay alive, no matter how relentless or selfish these decisions can be.
What is our culture's obsession with the living dead? We are so interested in zombies, because we are the zombies. Today’s world is full of things that are not good for us; air pollution, war, cancer, deforestation, and homelessness, just to name a few. The root cause of nearly all of these things can be traced back to humans, however most people
In an interview Kuklinski stated that he would murder anyone “if the price was right.” ("Richard Kuklinski. ")He murdered by using things like ice picks, hand grenades, chainsaws, crossbows, knives, cyanide gas, and guns ("Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski Biography"). His different style of weapon choice made it very difficult for detectives to find and trace the murders to him (“Richard Kuklinski”). He killed anyone who messed with the Gambino’s, including rivals, witnesses, and even police officers ("Richard Kuklinski"). Kuklinski nickname, “The Iceman” came from him sometimes putting his victims’ bodies into a freezer and leaving them there
He eventually comes back and tries to kill several people. Both him and a girl are left in a room for other reasons, they are both severally injured and at the brick of death. He then reveals the reason behind his cruel actions. He told the girl the reason why he was there is because he did not want to die alone. He explained that his father was executed for
Ironically, he kills him using the weapon that he is fighting himself--fire. Montag does not feel like he has much alternative other than torching his boss. One way that this relates to our current world is there continues to be many murders and deaths. The same thing applies to Fahrenheit 451. At one point Clarisse says "I'm afraid of children my own age.
In the film, Joe is a main character who is curious about the human world. During the whole film, Joe is often caught abusing his powers. At first, he killed off an average man in a coffee shop, so he could take his body and explore the human world. Because he killed someone before their time is up, he is misusing his powers for himself (Brest). Adding on, Death in this context tends to remind Bill Parish that he could kill him at any time.
Hordes of flesh eating murderers move slowly towards a defenseless white girl, she has nowhere to run, seemingly out of nowhere, a black man comes to the rescue as a white family ignores the obvious screams for help from the other side of a door. This exact situation occurs in the film Night of the Living Dead, and although he does everything he can, the main character, Ben, still ends up shot by the people that are supposed to protect him. Throughout the movie there is a prevalence of rebellion and aggression towards Ben due to nothing other than the color of his skin. Through the actions of Ben and those around him in their struggle for survival, racism is shown as an extremely prevalent issue. Mr. Cooper feels threatened by Ben which causes
He has took far many lives. So many that we and our fathers and grandfathers couldn’t even count, we may have dealt with those brainless dead easily, but monster like him… The Plague that was brought by that ball of fire couldn’t even affect him, no matter how many times he get bitten by the undead, he couldn’t be affected like how we normal humans turn into a walking corpse when we get bitten. They live while many die because of the Plague. His existence is unnatural, and I must use unnatural means to restore balance.” Joey was determined. “Enough explanation.
louder! louder! louder!” (85) He had killed an old man that lives in the same building as him and he killed him because he hates his eagle eye. This quote proves plot because he has great anger toward the old man and after he killed his guiltiness set in and he confessed to the cops so most likely he will be put to death or in jail the rest of his life which has consumed his life. Edgar uses plot throughout the entire book he writes, “No doubt I grew very pale; -but I talked more fluently, and with a heightened voice.” (84) He is becoming very scared and guilty and he is trying to urge the cops to leave because of fear of being caught.
As the story progresses, the narrator leads the reader throughout his journey, which ends with him finally killing the man. For this reason, the murderer should be sentenced to psychiatric treatment and twenty years of prison, since he acted exactly like a madman (hearing noises and sounds that didn’t exist), and he actually made a plan to go through with the murder. One of the themes that is consistent throughout this story is the idea of mental illness. The main character shows signs of being mentally ill as he constantly makes it clear that his sole reason for wanting to kill the old man is his eye (as he mentions in the text, he “grew furious as he gazed upon it” (Poe, 1843)). Sometimes paranoia causes you to act in certain ways, making you take rash decisions.

But one of the scenes which stood out was Mack’s death, which showed his fighting spirit even until his last moment. Addy, at that time, wasted on time in shooting Mack to prevent him from turning into one of the zombies.
