I found this quote extremely interesting. If I could fast forward time, and somehow be placed in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, I would chose to be in a more rural or even suburban area.…

    Shawn McIntosh’s essay, “The Evolution of the Zombie: The Monster That Keeps Coming Back,” ends by suggesting that the reason why zombies, although they are not the most frightening of the monster genre, made their way to being an iconic entity in our imaginations because of the way they comment on the events that are happening during their times and the need to go against societal rules. He also goes on to further imply that even in that kind of chaotic mentality, we find comfort in the sense…

The idea of zombies has been a part of our world since the 8th century.…

    What is horror? Horror is a type of extreme feeling of being afraid, disturbed and disgusted by something or a intense feeling of fear and shock.

    When we see the word “Halloween”, what do we actually think of? I assume most of us automatically ponder about candy, costumes, pumpkins, and parties right? But have we ever actually thought of why some of our friends can’t dress up for Halloween? Probably not, the reason to this is either religious or personal beliefs (which are pretty much the same reason). Many of my friends who are Christian are forbidden to participate in this holiday because they believe that Halloween is a day to…
