Did you know that, although the zombies we see in popular culture (horror and fantasy genres) are often the result of viruses and nuclear fallout, the actual origin of the zombie mythology is rooted in voodoo mysticism prevalent in Haitian folklore, (the Republic of Haiti is located in the Caribbean Sea between islands of Puerto Rico and Cuba), where it is understood, a zombie is a dead body animated by magic.
Believe it or not, they (Haiti) actually have a law in place to prevent anyone turning another person into a zombie unwillingly.
Rather than the aggressive, brain eating maniacs we’ve become accustomed to, the original zombies were referred to as “the undead” and exist in an aimless animated state of stupor, brought on by a ritualistic embalming process.
Zombies anywhere, anytime.
Zombies randomly appear most commonly in comics, art, gaming, music (Michael Jackson’s Thriller video anyone?), books and of course and definitely, films. The first movie to make mention of the word zombie was the 1932 horror film White Zombie. Since then, “the undead”, have appeared in the classic film, of director George A. Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead” (1968), as well as less-than-classic appearances in films like “Teenage Zombies” (1960), “Zombies! Zombies! Zombies!” (2008) and “The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed Up Zombies” (1964) among many others.
Zombies are relentless. They are not anymore the lumbering, slow moving, unintelligent type, but they have evolved into a more agile, far more intelligent and stronger mutated version of an infected human being, thanks to modern biological agents which we continue to experiment with and getting it totally wrong by too much confidence and carelessness. Before you know it…
…Zombie apocalypse is here!, characterised by:
- Initial contacts with the infected are always dangerous and traumatic, leading to shock, panic and denial, which manifests in an inability to deal with a clear head any possible encounters.
- Authorities in charge of deploying much needed help (army, special squads, police, boys scouts) are always slow to respond leading to the zombie plague to move fast and never effectively contained in time.
- Usually is up to the common citizen to come to the rescue and provide answers to combat and deal with the situation.
Another feature of the modern zombie is the desire to eat non-zombie human flesh, specifically brains. The reason they’re not interested in burgers with a side of chips or a roasted chicken is that the human brain contains serotonin, a hormone that is sometimes referred to as the “feel good” hormone. So that homicidal maniac that wants to sink his teeth into the nearest skull really just wants to feel good, much like the rest of us. Or maybe he’s celebrating World Zombie Day, which is October 8th.
Something to keep in mind.
If you find yourself surrounded by zombies be sure to take note of the following tips:
- Take your car keys with you.
- It really isn’t a good idea to “make a run for it”.
- Hiding in wardrobes or cellars with no other way out is also not a good idea.
- Never reason with a zombie. They just want to eat your brain.
- You will run out of ammunition so be sure to stock up.
