“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.
“Zombie March” by Brynn Macnabb is a story where the zombies are not dead, but living creatures that march for what they desire. Zombies come visit Amber Riley after her husband died. They tell her that her husband committed suicide on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial as a protest, but, before that, they march to protest change. In “Zombie March,” MacNabb uses symbolism to illustrate the theme, not all change is good because not all people want change.
For over 80 years, the theme of the undead has been used by writers and film makers as a metaphor to express deeper fears within our society such as nuclear war, communism and mass contagion.(Vox. 2013) In this essay I will be discussing how the use of metaphor contributes to highlighting humanity, moral ethics and values within AMC’s zombie-apocalypse television series ‘The Walking Dead’. The eight-year-running TV show ‘The Walking Dead’, which is based on a comic, is a post-apocalyptic television series where a group of survivors fight to stay alive in a world amongst ‘Walkers’, which are the walking dead (Zombies).
In “Our Zombies, Ourselves” author James Parker speaks to moviegoers and monster fans about that slow-moving creature of horror known as the zombie. In the essay, he attempts to uncover the reason for the zombie’s sudden and extreme popularity. To do such a thing he unearths the history of the zombies in film, literature, video games, and other media, and he sheds some light on their real origins – which all lead him to the conclusion that zombies are popular because of their “ex-personhood” (345). Throughout the essay Parker uses analytic language peppered with metaphors, description, and colorful references to some of the latest and greatest depictions of zombies, which help to bring the essay and the monsters to life and keep the audience’s interest.
In man’s eyes, zombies are hostile to human nature and can potentially wreak wreck nations. Though it is not definite, the idea of a widespread of the undead eradicating entire species populates from horror films and novels, promoting danger and enhancing terror to the public. In fear of the scenario, humans gather information in preparation for the apocalyptic era. In hope’s to resolve the situation, many great minds guide readers to salvage through literature, often with irrelevant information one can justify. Ali Kahn’s “Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse”, the schematic “How to Survive Zombies” and the Zombie Research Society’s “Mayans Destroyed by Zombies” enhances one’s lack of capability when surviving a zombie apocalypse by writing

Could you imagine running for your life from a gigantic group of flesh eating creatures that were once human that have arisen from the dead to come back to life and take over mankind as we know it? Well, that is exactly what would happen if we were to have a zombie apocalypse. For all we know, zombies only want one thing, and that is to wipe out the entire human race to take over the world as their own. Very scary concept I am aware, but what is even scarier is if a zombie apocalypse were to happen, there is not a 100% guarantee that we could fight the zombies off. A zombie apocalypse would be a very serious threat to mankind as we know it, and sadly there is not much we can do to stop it.
In the world of modern film, numerous works are originally literature before they are recreated into films.
