    It’s not just the innate preoccupation with death and the afterlife, it is more that zombies offer a side of humans that we can only dream about.

    We all think about what we would do in any given situation is not always what we would actually do if that situation actually happened.

    Zombies offers us a look at that side of us we cannot control. That basic instinct to feed regardless of the outcome and the danger.

    Zombies dont feel pain or remorse. We do. At least most of us do. We also think about situations that we can never be apart of. This is why they are so intriguing. They are so unlike vampires and werewolves.

    Basicially, they take up away from allllll our problems and puts us in a world where our problems reallllllly arent that big. It’s easier to think about what you would do then what you actually have to do. Like pay bills, wash the dog, make sure your kids have lunch money for school tomorrow. Or clean the house or go to work tomorrow and put up with that annoying coworker or that unjust boss.
