When I was a teenager, zombie movies were all the rage. One of my friends used to say, “the dead-er the better”. When I was in high school, a group of my friends and I used to have what we called “Gore fests” every Friday night. We would take turns hosting and choosing a few choice movies on VHS and enjoy each others’ company. Zombies were often on the bill.
Now that I am a few years older, and hopefully wiser, I don’t watch those types of movies as often as I used to. I still enjoy them from time to time, but they just aren’t what they used to be. Neither are Zombies! I have noticed of late, and maybe you have as well, that Zombies have permeated our lives by sneaking into everyday conversation, television, fiction and even scientific anomaly. I am calling this, the zombie phenomenon.
