2012 Zombie Apocalypse Draft Discussion Thread Day 2

Zombies are fictional undead creatures regularly encountered in horror and fantasy themed works. They are typically depicted as mindless, reanimated corpses with a hunger for human flesh, and particularly for human brains in some depictions. Although they share their name and some superficial similarities with the zombie from Haitian Vodun, their links to such folklore are unclear[1] and many consider George A. Romero's seminal film The Night of the Living Dead to be the progenitor of these creatures.[2] Zombies have a complex literary heritage, with antecedants ranging from Richard Matheson and H. P. Lovecraft to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, all drawing on folkloric legends of the flesh-hungry undead. The zombie apocalypse, the civilised world brought low by a global zombie infestation, has become a staple of modern popular art. By 2011 the influence of zombies in popular consciousness had reached far enough that government agencies were using them to garner greater attention in public service messages.[3]
