Are you the next victim of the zombie sub-culture?

I can has brainz

Zombies have made their way into a lot of people’s hearts, and brains. The zombie sub-culture has spread as far and wide as an actual zombie pandemic. Where did this “infection” start? Well when you have movies like the Evil Dead franchise, how can you not get infected? Low budget horror films that aren’t trying to make themselves become “the next big movie” inadvertently make names for themselves through their comedy and ability to laugh at themselves. But who doesn’t want to be the next big movie and make millions of dollars?

The Resident Evil franchise went that route and managed to profit about 487 million out of the deal. Both of these movie franchises portray the zombies quite different. Over the years zombies have evolved from the slow moving, arms out in front, moaning for brains (what you see in the Evil Dead franchise mostly) to the fast-moving, chase you down, “red heads” and “licker” types you see in Resident Evil. This is partially why events like zombie walks are so popular, because the only set rule to being “turned into a zombie” is that you have to want to attack non-zombies for their brains. And lets face it, strangers like attacking complete strangers and then walking away (usually to the beer garden).

After the first Evil Dead movie hit theaters in 1981 Michael Jackson came out with Thriller 2 years later, breaking down musical barriers and making the best music video of all time. This was a HUGE moan and shuffle forward for zombie culture, and everywhere people were learning the choreography to the Thriller dance. Since the upwards crawl of the zombie culture,  the Guinness Book of World Records has recognized records such as the first mathematical model for surviving a zombie attack and, of course, the largest Thriller dance.

The zombie sub-culture is growing every year and it’s fun to take part in. Zombie walks take place in nearly every major city, are a great social outing, and are relatively harmless. If you have a zombie walk organized near you I recommend you  go out and have some fun, drink some beer, and be entertained. Just remember to have some sort of zombie-related makeup or accessory on or you’re bound to get blood on your favorite shirt.

        The movie was great because Will Smith is a top-notch actor. The endnig wasn’t up to par with the intense drama that was developed throughout the entire length of the movie. I agree with the endnig being too cookie-cutterish. (Yay i support u WRIXEL)In response to Locksley the trap was made by the zombies, who mimicked will smith’s trap in order to lure him near the building where they were camping. However, this was a bit incongruent with the lack of intelligence the zombies were displaying earlier.As far as how the zombies were designed, I thought it would be better if they didnt all look the same. Supposedly it was a virus that causes hairloss, skin reactions, and loss of pigmentation, but I dont understand why they all looked like clones. I personally thought the zombies looked scary. =( Yes i am one of those ppl who jump at everything tho. >.<
