What is our culture's obsession with the living dead? We are so interested in zombies, because we are the zombies. Today’s world is full of things that are not good for us; air pollution, war, cancer, deforestation, and homelessness, just to name a few. The root cause of nearly all of these things can be traced back to humans, however most people
Determining who the monster is in the novel Frankenstein is a question that could be based on a variety of levels. There is one character that does embody horror and monstrosity in the novel that shows he is the true monster. Victor Frankenstein is the true monster, because he obtained knowledge that only God should possess, he was not capable with his actions to fulfill this knowledge, and allowed his self-ambition and revenge to control him, leading to his destruction. In chapter two of the novel, Victor has a desire and passion to obtain knowledge. Not just any knowledge, but he stated, “It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn,” and goes on to say that the, “inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man
Shaun of the Dead, a unique film among its horror siblings Zombies, a genre that has taken the over the world, it’s difficult to turn around the corner and not hear someone or something reference it. While the vast amount of gore present may turn a lot of people off, there are alternatives available. Among them is the 2004 British romantic zombie comedy movie Shaun of the Dead, directed by Edgar Wright. It tells the story of Shaun, a man attempting to obtain a handle on his life, get back with the love of his life Liz, deal with his unemployed, incompetent friend Ed and his parents; all of this in the middle of a zombie uprising. The flick on itself makes for a good time for long-time zombie fans with its homages to George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead while attracting newbies onto the genre with its comedic elements
Victor Frankenstein created a monster in the book Frankenstein. At first, Victor just wants to recreate human life, but he realized that the being looks ugly and thought that his creation is evil right off the bat. After some time pass by in the book, the monster slowly becomes a murderer due to Victor’s interference in making him suffered. This will make the monster as a victim to the cruelty of the world. The monster was treated horribly by the people in the story.
This also indicates that Beowulf kills for the purpose of battle and avenging the lives lost at the hands of Grendel. Lastly, we must analyze the monsters in the poem and how they are different and similar to the hero. Grendel is a chaotic monster that comes to Heorot Hall each evening to attack and feast on King Hrothgar’s people (page 44, lines 115-25). Grendel’s actions of killing demonstrate to the reader that he does not do this for any higher purpose other than to cause chaos, meaning he has no value for honor. Another heroic trait that Grendel does not possess is power of blood.
“There was a fearful snapping of bones and tearing of sinews and muscles, Beowulf pulled Grendel's arm out of it’s socket” (Nye 42). When you are facing a beast stronger than you and defeat them then that shows that there is always a way to defeat evil Another way someone demonstrates the author's message, Beowulf found a way to defeat Grendel’s Mother. “Beowulf put his hands around her neck and strangled her” (Nye 71). If you are facing a monster and there are piles of blood and bones everywhere, doesn't that make you scared, it didn't make Beowulf scared, Beowulf found a way to defeat evil.
He has took far many lives. So many that we and our fathers and grandfathers couldn’t even count, we may have dealt with those brainless dead easily, but monster like him… The Plague that was brought by that ball of fire couldn’t even affect him, no matter how many times he get bitten by the undead, he couldn’t be affected like how we normal humans turn into a walking corpse when we get bitten. They live while many die because of the Plague. His existence is unnatural, and I must use unnatural means to restore balance.” Joey was determined. “Enough explanation.
In Lusus Naturae, once the people of the village learn that the protagonist is still alive, they create a mob to go hunt her down. The townspeople were so distressed by the fact that the protagonist was still alive that they “[were] marching towards this house, in the dusk, with long stakes, with torches.” In the scenario, they were looking to kill the protagonist, believing that she was some type of monster, far too different from them for their own comfort. An event comparable to this occurs in the movie Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. The leader of the newly formed Galactic Empire had a drastically different ideological view than a group of people known as the Jedi, and had schemed against them for years. Once he finally had enough “evidence” (forged/ manipulated by himself) that the Jedi wished to overthrow him from his place as leader, he decided to order the army of the Galactic Empire to hunt down and kill all members of the Jedi Order.
When making the decision to destroy his half-finished female form, Victor recalls that he had already “created a fiend of unparalleled barbarity” in his first monster, and that this new creation might even be “ten thousand times more malignant than her mate” (138). In the wake of the trauma the monster has caused both to himself and his family (via his post-partum depressive state and the deaths of Justine and William respectively), Frankenstein is now overwhelmingly conscious of the horrible consequences that birth can entail. In contrast to his previous aspirations, he characterizes his creation with words of negative connotation such as “barbarous” and “fiend,” and suggests that a future creation could even be exponentially more evil. Victor’s initial dreams of fatherhood have been grotesquely morphed into terror of future creation, which would be made possible by creating a female monster. He speculates that one of the first results of creating a mate for his monster would be a “race of devils…propagated upon the earth” who would make the “very existence of man…full of terror” (138).
He tried to create a partner that would never leave and in order to accomplish this he drilled holes in their skulls and tried different chemicals to try to create a “zombie.” Dahmer’s twisted logic led him to eat his victims in order for them to be a part of him. Clearly, these actions are not of a person you would consider sane. Dahmer tried unsuccessfully to uses the insanity defense. Since the use of insanity defense typically has to do with knowing right from wrong he could not use this defense because he did in fact know what he was doing was wrong. Despite individuals knowing the wrongfulness of their act some may not be able to control their impulse to commit such act.
