„Zombies in the Romero style are precisely what Robert Kirkman delivered when he kicked off the comic book series The Walking Dead in 2003“ (Lowder, 14).

Characters in book and movie are expressed in a way where they are brave and confident for what they believe in, but Rainsford shows how he is against General Zaroff by addressing his game as murder, and Kane tells his bride he does not run away from his problems. Having an antagonist in each of the stories show how evil they both can be, but in “The Most Dangerous Game” General Zaroff is more discreet about his game, and in High Noon Frank Mitchell wants everyone to know he is coming to get his revenge on Kane. The setting has the same idea with Rainsford and Kane being deserted and left alone, but it is different because Rainsford is stranded on an island with few people, and Kane is in a town filled with townspeople. For the most part, “The Most Dangerous Game” and High Noon have just as much similarities as differences even if they have nothing in common when you first see or read
According to Prejean, taking responsibility for one’s actions is the first step towards atonement, yet through the vocalization of Ryan she questions if any further steps beyond “[sitting] in a room with all the people...harmed by [the] crime” are truly necessary (Ryan 232). When presenting Matthew Poncelet in Dead Man Walking, he is originally portrayed as a cold heartless killer, a bigot who “is not a person [but]... an animal” (Dead Man Walking). But through the progression of the film, he becomes pitiable, finally reaching full escalation when recognizing responsibility for his role in the crime. By arranging her piece so the climax is his confession, Prejean is able to create a sympathetic atmosphere among her audience, while entwining reminders of what led to this position, through the belief that he has suffered enough and resolves the situation through his acknowledgement of his wrongs to the victim’s families. Prejean presents her case against capital punishment citing “killing is wrong, no matter who does it” and that personal responsibility is the only appropriate punishment for these “monsters” (Dead Man Walking).

With the 1932 movie “White Zombie”, which follows the traditional Haitian idea of a zombie, the zombie entered Hollywood and did not leave it ever since. The zombie portrayed in the movies of 1930s and 1940s represented fear of the other and colonialism.

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. Parker begins the essay with a crash-course on the zombie’s early popularity before moving onto more modern times, beginning with what he considers the start of the zombie’s fame: Romero’s 1968 film, Night of the Living Dead.
