Did you know that society’s obsession with the zombie genre has been attributed to our fascination with constant tragedies and our out-of-control society? For countless of years, much media-related content that tackles the possibility of a zombie apocalypse has attracted a plethora of fans. From games to TV shows, the aspect of reanimated corpses out to get the living, and causing the downfall of civilization, has brought its audiences interest and a willingness to partake. The freedom that a zombie outbreak might bring to a regular person is exhilarating and tempting, to say the least.

Plenty of computer, console, and mobile games, TV shows, and movies give people the chance to see the undead get slaughtered in new and creative ways whilst avoiding questioning their own morality. The fact that Marc Forster’s World War Z movie, starring Brad Pitt and based on Max Brooks’ bestselling novel, raked in $540 million, making it one of 2013’s ten biggest blockbusters, despite reports of the film’s troubled production, budget issues, and negative comments from critics. Zombie-related media have been rising and falling for the past few years, but one thing stays sure: zombies will always hold a special place in every fan’s heart.
