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.
