The Zombie Genre

Max Brooks, author of –I can’t believe I’ve only just discovered this– The Zombie Survival Guide is quoted on the nature of the zombie genre.

“The genre cannot exist outside of the apocalyptic,” he says. “Since we are living in times of great uncertainty, zombies are a safe way of exploring our own anxiety about the end of the world.”

I think there’s more to it than that, but it’s interesting to here someone who’s not a Christian say that.
