When you think of a zombie, what comes to mind? To most people a zombie is a cannibalistic creature that rises from the dead and is often linked with diseases. In the film Night of the Living Dead this is exactly what we get. The zombies are the main element of horror in this film and this is what holds our attention. Whereas in the film I Walked With a Zombie, the true terror is not being killed by zombies, but of becoming a zombie oneself.
Loyalty is a very common but underestimated thing that most people have in their relationships. Breaking that loyalty and trust can make or break a relationship.

2001 was a year that most people find devastating, but as a one year old, unaware of the tragedy happening in the world, I found peace in a dazzling movie known as Monsters, Inc. As a toddler, I found myself attracted and intrigued by the big fluffy blue monster, Sully, and the one eyed green monster, Mike Wazowski. In my mind, I trusted these two monsters and I wanted my own Mike Wazowski and Sully in real life. Looking back at it as I’m older, my views on the movie and the lessons I’ve learned still haven’t changed. However, I’ve been able to pinpoint the Mike and Sully in my life, my parents.
When it comes to his family, Jason aligns his ideals with and draws his inspiration almost entirely from his mother and Julia. While certain scenes present the father in a tolerable light, the chapter ‘Souvenirs’ stands as a symbol for the discourse in their father-son relationship. Jason’s dad is actually far to similar to his son, as shown by the quickness with which he shirked from an altercation with his boss, to serve as a proper role model. In the later half of that same chapter, however, Jason recounts “I had no idea mom could be so bulletproof”(193) when depicting how she stood up to the spoiled, highschool thieves. Far more than just a juxtaposition to the father’s frailness, the mother’s action serve as an idealized metaphor for Jason’s own struggles.
Dead corpses rising, marching to an unknown future, an unknown cause – this is the nature of what the plot of “Zombie March” incorporates. The uniqueness of the text in this story is enhanced not only by the general theme, which is entirely different than other stories categorized under these genres, but also by the type of humor present. The protagonist, Amber Riley, was waiting for her husband to return, but after his death was confirmed, Amber became lonesome and henceforth kept a shotgun in her home, near the door (MacNabb, 2012, para. 1). Following the return of her husband as a walking, and talking, corpse, she was (oddly) not too shocked – however, it complements the theme of the story – but remained edgy. After she told her “dead” husband to leave, she had subsequent, eerie, visits from the so-called “marching dead”.

Considering how long Lee took to think, he must care about his family very much, " The most important thing in my life is my family." His answers were like any others yet his sincerenest could be felt. The person he looks up to the most is his father, wanting to be a person like him, to always be kind and helping people in need. When I asked Dougless what he would do if he saw a person drop his wallet or a $100 bill, he said straighforwardly, "I would pick it up and keep it. " I would have done the same thing too, who wouldn 't want free money?
Daniel W. Drezner’s ‘Theories of International Politics and Zombies’ is an interesting anecdote of the increasing fascination with zombies within the pop-culture realm. A professor of International Politics at the Fletcher School and a member of the Zombie Research Society, Drezner’s book draws upon current discussions in the international arena. Drezner deploys satire and humor to exemplify how various theories of international politics would tackle a situation in which the “flesh eating ghouls” walked the earth. He cleverly uses zombies as a tool to introduce every concept and as a means to deride the predictability of every theory. His chapters discuss theories of ‘Real Politik’, Liberalism, Neo-conservatism, Social Constructivism.
