Over the years, zombies have been hugely popularised throughout the entertainment industry – through a variety of media. In film, this subject matter has been extensively covered – from George A. Romero’s cult classic ‘Night of the Living Dead’ (1968) to the more recent; ‘Zombieland’ (2009) directed by one Ruben Fleischer.
Zombies are also the core to a wide range of videogames including CAPCOM’s successful ‘Resident Evil’ series which saw its first installment released in 1996. They are also excellently referenced in the literature (see the works of author Max Brooks).
As well as being hugely entertaining, important lessons can be derived from each of these sources and applied to real-life situations – regard them as constructive research.
