DID YOU KNOW?

The origins of zombies come from the Caribbean island of Haiti. It only became known to the West due to the US occupation of Haiti from 1915 to 1934. George Romero released his groundbreaking film Night of the Living Dead from 1968. It became about mass outbreaks where the dead rise up to consume the living. Any cause given is fragmentary and inconclusive, with a cure even more so. The reasons for how and why zombies exist is a mystery, bordering on the impossible. So why has it sparked such a morbid curiosity and fascination for the undead in us?

It's not only in movies that we see this trend rising. The zombie-themed horror genre has also made its way to other forms of media. From The Walking Dead TV show to the long-running Resident Evil game franchise. Our fascination with zombies goes beyond movies. We want to have a more immersive experience and these things provide that. These games started out on PCs and consoles at first that you can play alone. You can also choose to play with friends as there are multiplayer horror games available as well. Now, game titles have appeared on mobile platforms as well. We can now play our favorite scary game on the go now. Now is a good time to be a fan of zombies as there is plenty of material to please your curiosity with this phenomenon.
