Zombie and Vampire culture is very much part of our zeitgeist. There are stacks of books and movies about both and people talk as if they actually exist as some part of pseudo reality. There are even a few fitness programs designed to help you survive the apocolypse.
Of course, the saner among us discuss this with tongue firmly in cheek but you do start wondering if in 2,000 years time people will revere ‘Twilight’ as a sacred text that documents the rise of Vampires that lived among us for a time and historical copies of “Land of the Dead” will be screened to show how our civilisation coped with the rising of the undead.
