Continuing fascination in popular culture

- Zombies The continuing fascination with the zombie motif in popular culture, including literature, film, television, and video games, points to the fact that zombies are of greater significance in our cultural psyche than simple vehicles for inducing easy fear. At the same time that the zombies themselves hold this weight, the fear of zombification - the threat of losing one’s selfhood and becoming one of the undead - holds an equal, if not greater, fascination for individuals as well. Terrifying animals, such as giant sharks or vindictive spiders, and even humans who have gone insane and prey psychotically on other people fail to have the staying power in our imaginations and in our night...   [tags: zombies, dead walking,apocalypse]
