What is it about zombies that makes them so fascinating to people?
I often ponder this thought since for some reason I too have taken a liking to these strange creatures that are neither dead or alive … they are undead. Zombies feast off of humans … mostly indulging in brains. Why would a human be drawn to this sort of behavior?
Do we relate to zombies?
Do we also feel like we walk through life stumbling and devouring? Do we envy these creatures who seem to already know what they want?
Zombies no longer think, feel, bleed … zombies are numb. They do not experience raw human emotion, and they do not wander through life searching for happiness. They just feast on the flesh of the living, the brains of the thinking. They snatch the life of humans.
Perhaps, zombies are a symbol …
Zombies could be used to depict so many groups of humans, such as those searching for power, wealth, beauty … in the process they feed on the lives of others. They take from others in order to promote their status in life. Corporate zombies. Government zombies. Capitalist zombies.
Honestly, I am not sure what is making zombies so popular these days, but I must admit that it is really nice to escape into fantasy once in a while. And, I think if you plan to flee reality for a moment, zombies are a good way to go. So, get your zombie on!
