Readers are able to recognize the theme of the book which they are including horror and romance simultaneously. On the first glance of the book, the narrator is described as a pathetic and thoughtless man who is no longer human and he has turned into a zombie, not just him there are thousands of them who live together in an airport. ‘’Over the year, many scholars and writers have attempted to explain the appeal of horror. Each has presented their own theories through differing analytical frameworks, and perhaps quite understandably, one of them common explanatory elements for the appeal of horror is the depiction of death.’’(Paffenroth 107) . They have no friends because first of all they cannot really communicate, second they are emotionless which make them to not having any friends.
For instance, Matt Kaplan studied the sciences at MIT and folklore at Harvard. He has also written articles for the National Geographic, Nature, New Scientist and the Economist. Kaplan has also published a book called Medusa’s Gaze and Vampire’s Bite: The Science of Monsters (2012) where he investigated the origins of many mythical creatures using history and biochemistry. Furthermore, he uses credible and scholarly sources for many examples in his text of Cursed By a Bite. For example, he uses sources from Zora Neale Hurston, a student of the noted anthropologist Franz Boas at Columbia University to explain in detail about the zombies in Haiti.
For instance, the very first sentence of Hollinger’s essay starts off with this quote, “As Stephen Neale suggests, an intimate relationship seems to exist among the filmic presentation of the horror monster, the castration anxiety it evokes, and the cinematic representation of the female form.” (Hollinger pg. 243 of the Monsters book), in which she uses to intrigue the reader and to give the reader an idea about the work. Hollinger tells the reader that Neale thinks that the usual origin of a monster in a film is due to a relationship that went wrong and also claims that men are more vulnerable to certain anxieties. The placement of her reference to Neale’s essay allows the reader to conduct an idea of what the essay is going to be about and makes the reader think about what is more threatening between feminine monsters or masculine monsters. I think it was creative of her to reference a well-known philosopher and that she was able to use it to have the reader thinking about movies they’ve watched and figure out whether they’ve actually seen any movie at all with a feminine monster and if they did, then they’d compare them to the masculine monster causing the reader to think even more!

These events’ inclusion are important due to the context and understanding that they grant readers unfamiliar with the text. Persepolis begins with an introduction to the Iranian Revolution, and the fall of the Shah. Satrapi shows us the burning of the Rex Cinema, an example of the Shah’s oppression (10/11). This is effectively showcased with a splash panel, which depicts the ghosts of those who died in the fire (15/2). This imagery is powerful - the deaths and pains of those inside are unimaginable; despite the difficulty in portraying this, Satrapi is able to communicate this through the illustrated facial expressions of the ghosts, along with the ghosts running towards the exits of the cinema.
When you read the book Frankenstein by Mary Shelley you may oversee something very important that could possibly answer many questions for you. One question it has answered for me was what was the purpose for writing Frankenstein and to me it really doesn 't have much to do with it just being a horror story. To me it is about a man who defy 's the laws of nature and because of that experienceses the after math of bringing the deceased back to life. Now another thing that may be racing through your mind is why exactly would Mary Shelley title this The Modern Prometheus. Well, in my research I had found out that according to Rebecca Dudczak the one reason was that Pometheus experiences consequences from power and enlightenment,(Dudczak) just as Victor Frankenstein does in the novel.
Overall, the film and the story have two very different plots that make each of them into their own tale. Secondly, the film veers away from Poe's ideas for his short story. In the story, Poe did not use any themes or ideas other than the basic essence of horror and some mystery. The main character is obviously very afraid and although he does not know where he is, the reader does. In Roger Corman's film, there is romance, much more mystery, an even greater essence of horror, and even a bit of sadness.
Warm Bodies is meant to bring and set out it 's own understanding of the mythology of zombies, to understand the transformation of becoming a zombie through out the whole movie. The movie mostly revolves around memories and how much they are worth. Warm Bodies is about a post zombie apocalyptic world. A unique zombie saves a human girl (a warm body) from a zombie attack on her team, the two form an unusual relationship that sets motion events that might transform a whole entire lifeless world at the other side of the wall. As the movie goes on, the title of the movie has a deeper meaning and sense because of R 's aim; to become a living human, to have a heart beat, saying that eating brains and absorbing the memories of his victims gives him a feeling of being alive.
Mellor, in her essay, continues to provide a reworking of William Blake’s (1757-1827) famous words “we become what we behold”. Keeping this idea in mind, Mellor goes on to say while diligently working on creating life out of the dead, Victor in the end becomes much like The Monster himself. Moreover, by the end of Frankenstein the two characters become undistinguishable as the positions of the hunter and the hunted are
Bearded witches, permanently bloody hands, and floating daggers: Macbeth is sort of like a spook house at a fair. Nothing there is quite what it seems. “Fair is foul and foul is fair.” (Shakespeare 1.1.12) the rivers of blood turn out to be corn syrup and red food coloring, and the skeletons in the closet are just old plastic. Truth and reality are often murky in Macbeth and the distinction between what is "foul" and what is "fair" is frequently blurred. It is evident throughout the play, that appearances do not always accurately reflect reality.
