It seems that people have always have had a thing for zombies ever since The Night of the Living Dead came out in the year 1968, but recently, this has become more popular because of the television series, “The Walking Dead.” People have started to speculate what may truly occur if zombies would actually exist?
There are a lot of games that make use of zombies as antagonists in different computer games. For example, if you have already played Silent Hill, you will see that there are different zombies that you need to fight before you can win the game. It seems that zombies are just harder to kill as compared to the typical antagonists.
Zombies have always been popular ever since they became stars in certain horror movies. However, zombies were actually popular in certain parts of the world long before movies were being made. Zombies became popular through myths and traditional folklore. These stories were being passed down from generation to generation and then the children would believe that zombies exist because they have been told these stories about zombies from their parents and grandparents.
Then when movies started to be made, they became popular from the people who went to these movies. The more movies that they saw with zombies in them, the more they believed in them and wanted to see them. Now, they are even more popular than ever because of the zombie apocalypse.
