Thus, the steady growth of the Zombie industry could reflect modern culture’s religious doubts and anxiety concerning what happens after death. As a result of my own extensive research into the theme of the Zombie apocalypse, it is feasible to theorize that recent genetic experimentations and the advances in genetic modification have resulted in an ingrained fear that these procedures could go awry and result in a pathological virus. This type of outbreak is commonplace in recent Zombie themed narratives such as The Walking Dead, The Crazies and 28 Days Later; this could echo our inherent distrust of science and
Faster zombies with the ability to talk or cooperate appear in the movie Return of the Living Dead. They originate from a deadly gas and hunger for human brains. Even burning them releases the gas which can create new zombies, therefore they need to be totally destructed. In 28 Days Later a virus caused the zombie outbreak. A single drop of infected blood or body fluid, transmitted through vomiting or bites, can change a person within seconds and the rage takes over.
They have no friends because first of all they cannot really communicate, second they are emotionless which make them to not having any friends. Innocent people get killed by zombies every day to provide food of zombies because human’s brain is the only food that they can eat. This heartless narrator, who seems not friendly at all, falls in love with a human. By filling in love, he realizes that he is able to sense his feeling and do some extraordinary activities that he had never thought of doing and that other zombies are not able to do them such as talking. ’’ Zombies have always represented the worst elements of human civilization.
For eternity, he will walk the earth, smelling the sweet blood of the living, feasting upon the bones of the damned. Beware, for he is the living dead” (Obscure Hindu Text, circa 1000 B.C.E.) (Brooks, 1). Zombies are fictional creatures, which are neither alive nor dead, created by the means of reanimation of human corpses or a virus infection. They are monsters that frighten people, eat their flesh and brains and their single role is to make the human race extinct.
Without memory there is no civilization, no society, no future’ (interview). This quote is about how if you don’t remember these events then it might happen again if something this bad happens again then our society wont be no more there would be alot of world problems that we can’t have. We also need to remember those who have died because of the dehumanization they went through.”I became A-7713. From then on, I had no other name.” (pg. 42) this shows dehumanization because they weren’t even given a proper name they were just given a code like they weren’t people anymore.
At the opening sequence, we see various people working at jobs with minimal pay, perform the same, tiring, daily routine with very little thought. It gives off the impression that these people are already zombies themselves.Seemingly mindless beings, unaware and/or uninterested in what is around them. It isn’t much different from a great part of the global population, keeping their faces glued to the screen on their mobile devices as we are generally unattentive to important matters unfolding around us, only focusing on our electronic devices, unable/uncaring to fix the flawed system we are part of. Taking a look at what we might become (or already are) makes it frightening, a factor discussed in Amy Wilentz’s “A Zombie is a Slave Forever” article. “The zombie is scary...in a primordial way, too...The zombie is devoid of consciousness and therefore unable to critique the system that has entrapped him”
“OOOOAAARRRGGGHHH!”. Having watched all 9 seasons of The Walking Dead, I am now accustomed to hearing the endless shouts and moans of zombies. It being my favorite show, I remember being so sucked into it that I would do anything in order to keep up with the constant action. Just last month, I remember coming home after my SAT being completely exhausted and hungry. Although my family already had lunch, my mom prepared food for me and laid it out on the table.
This may seem like a far-fetched scenario out of an insane novel about a modern post-apocalyptic world to some but to the majority, it is a scary reality that hits a little bit too close to home. How many of us have friends or siblings who have become zombies because of technology? Walking around, seemingly oblivious to the happenings of the worlds. On average, a teenager spends five
In the last 10 years many things have changed in our life, especially after the electronic renaissance. Not only social media effects our life but video games do as well, many people believe that these games effects are bad to health, but many of these people think that these games can change people, make them go crazy or even killers, specially violent video games, they think that the game would turn into reality. Although they have point, a lot of people disagree with them. I think that video games don’t promote aggression even the violent one. The society has bigger problems to solve and comparing them to video games, I feel that the video games problem is a silly one, people kill each other because of the wrong polices, not a silly game.
