Zombies are an outgrown of vampire myth. Such myths arise during periods of extreme cultural upheaval. They function to define a scapegoat and solidify the unity of mainstream identity. In particular the zombie stories void the taboos against violence and murder. In current war culture in the West that could explain the phenomenon.

I think it's interesting how the story about zombies has changed by Hollywood and literature. The origins of zombies come from Haitian voodoo, and they became mindless slaves after consuming some powder and "dying". They didn't eat human flesh and you don't become one if it attacked you.

It's a popular theme and Hollywood wants to create successful movies to generate money.

What was the concurrence of the Haitian revolution with the proto-historical blurb presented?

Well I think the whole Haitian zombie is a more probable situatian, minus the supernatural element. There is a tree found in South America that has flowers with psychoactive compound, when it's crushed up and inhaled a person loses their free will. People use this drug as a means of controlling someone and usually make their victim hand over their money, basically robbing them without resistance. If such substance exists, then I think it's possible to do more than just the rob them of their money and valuables.

The picture described by nu represents a common submissive wish to be controlled. Then you do what you want under the will of another and are indemnified from blame and consequences. One of the keenest attractions of the myth.

I would reccomend watching "Hide and Creep" a comical take on the classic night of the living dead.

Zombies are cool. People like see survivors in the actual world. And it's better if they can die everytime, so zombies are perfect. :D

Zombies symbolize life without consciousness. No individuality, complete anarchy, no freedom.

I'm a big fan of the Walking Dead. I like other zombie-related movies as well but this TV show seems perfect to me. I've just watched the first two series of the new season with my friends (they like it too). Some of us can't wait till Negan gets out of jail :D We decided to watch those series only together and it's awesome. We feel just like those survivors in the Walking Dead. My friend even found a zombie-related app to see how would we look if bitten by zombie :D Just awesome!
