The main character acts like a zombie in order to survive the apocalypse. The perspective of this story is a glimpse into an alternate hero archetype. Unlike Home Delivery, the main character has “joined” the zombie horde by imitating them instead of joining the fight for survival. This mimicry blurs the line of survivor and zombie in the protagonist and they find themselves having difficulty relating to and admitting to their own humanity. Other survivors beat the main character mercifully for acting like this and, it seems, this fellow has seen his share of beatings in his life as a human.
At the time, the Vietnam War was still raging and the Cold War had begun. The zombies in the film reflected the wars and represented the diseases of violence. In Return of the Living Dead the film is more about comedy and lighting the mood of the monster.

Zombies; cannibalistic monsters; decomposing corpses brought back to life; the walking dead. We all know of them. They are one of the most popular doomsday themes to pull from for movies, games, and tv shows. We are all familiar with what your standard zombie would look and act like, despite them being a fictional creature. The zombie franchise is booming and with so many zombie centralized medias out there for consumer enjoyment, it’s to be expected to see some variation within the monsters themselves.
The next instance in which an aggressor is given more power through little resistance is during the conflict between the wandering zombie in the house and the recently traumatized Barbara. This zombie found his suitable target, and would have killed her if it was not for Ben. If ben had not intervened, that zombie would continue its rampage. Finally, after all the appeasement for the zombies by Barbara, she succumbs to the hordes and the theory is
Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland. Shaun of the Dead’s co-writer and star says, “[our movie] makes fun of how people react in the event of massive social upheaval.” (S. Pegg) These films, while still displaying zombies on the hunt for brai... ... middle of paper ... ...to find a zombie movie that is right up their alley. It doesn’t matter if the zombies are infected and showing superhuman abilities meant to terrify even the most stoic of us all, there will always be another seat in the theatre waiting to be filled by the next zombie fanatic. Movies can show the zombies running, walking, or even tripping and it will all fall back on the gore factor that is ever present in each zombie movie category. Night of the Living Dead.
Another example is when again when Harry pulled the gun on Ben at the end of the film. Harry threatened Ben and everyone in the room at gunpoint. When Ben gained control of the weapon, he punished Harry by shooting him in the chest ending his life. The last term is Hedonism. An example of Hedonism in the Film is the zombies going to great lengths to kill and eat the humans.
Zombies are most often used as a metaphor these days for uncontrollable consumerism that plagues our generation. We blindly buy without thinking, either because of a low price, lust, or simply we just want more. We are guilty of “Zombie Consumerism”. Zombie consumerism is evident in George Romeros' film, Dawn of the Dead. In this movie, a shopping mall is where the characters take refuge and becomes the setting in which the humans stay in the battle of the zombies.
All the zombies in the hotel died. Once it collapsed there was smoke and fire everywhere, and out of the smoke I saw something I saw the mutant zombie he was still alive he was damage.

So he leaves thinking I was died so he leaves walking somewhere else; he killed me…..or so he thought…….
We’ve been so hounded in recent years with dire warnings about terrorist attacks. For example, Tyreese who has always been treated as an outsider in the book. When Rick and Tyreese planned to split two zombies up, both of them attacked zombies and try to get that one’s attention. However, these two zombies come to Tyreese together and overlook Rick with instinctions. Perhaps Tyreese’s unfamiliar skin-color turns him into the unique prey of zombies.
The zombie craze was “born” for the hardcore horror fans but has been kept “alive” by fear and publicity that is focused towards everyone. Before the zombies arrived, the hardcore horror fan needed something gruesome and zombies really gave it to them. A zombie is the living undead that has been awakened by some phenomenon such as the heat of the moon. The zombie then roams the earth in constant hunger for human flesh and brains. Every victim is then infected with the “zombie disease” and turns into a zombie themselves.
