I thought it was a fad, and it would die out. I was wrong. Zombies don't die, and neither does our fascination with them. All this leaves the unanswered question: why?
Not only how to survive Doomsday, but how to thrive afterward.
The show is seeping into our culture and our lives in unexpected ways -- which means that it may have turned you without your being fully aware. Here are some telltale signs.
The show tells the story of a small band of survivors after modern society has been destroyed by a zombie outbreak. What are the ways that living with a new child is similar to surviving the zombie apocalypse?

1. No Ikea in the world has any reception. If you are inside Ikea, no one outside Ikea can hear you scream. Is your loved one further down in the maze? Or maybe you missed them somehow and they're behind you? In an Ikea, who f@#$ing knows.
Recently, footage emerged of what Scott had in mind for his mutants. Rather than rely on CGI, Scott -- as seen with Prometheus -- favored the art of make-up, prosthetics and animatronics. It's some truly stunning work.
Ahhh yes, the zombie apocalypse -- that moment when the dead rise and, by biting the living, turn them into zombies as well. Some theorize that Patient Zero was Ronald Reagan.
People are drawn to zombies for a variety of reasons. For some, it's just good, untidy fun. If your marksmanship is spot on, you'll be rewarded with a splash of satisfying gore.
Oh, no. You guys. There is something under the ice. Alive. Malevolent. Bizarre. Enormously terrifying. It will soon hurl our entire cluster of space-traveling heroes into fits of insanity and violence and much panicked screaming. Oh, no.
In "The Walking Dead," Warm Bodies and the upcoming World War Z, zombies are leaving deep footsteps in Hollywood. Now, black filmmakers are adding their own imprint to the zombie trek with the short film Danger Word.
Not surprisingly, if you look for Christian reviews of "ParaNorman," you will see many focus on warnings to stay way from the occult. Sadly, this response misses the profoundly deep moral message behind this film.
Without real places for flies to lay eggs, for example, the flowers of terrible scent have nothing to aspire to. You can't mimic something that doesn't exist. Or can you?

They know how to pronounce "Cthulhu" and what a TARDIS is. I'm betting some of them speak Elvish, others, Klingon. And they could outlive you in a zombie apocalypse. Why? Because they've read every book on the subject.
They say kids say the darndest things. But my belief is that it's 75-year-old parents who have just discovered a new movie who really blurt out classic nuggets of truth (hell, just look at Shit My Dad Says).
