Short Thoughts: The Zombie CrazeSo when people talk about zombies, you get one of two responses. Either “ugh, another zombie fanboy,” or “let me tell you about my zombie plan.” But why is that? Is the zombie phenomenon a good thing for shooting sports and firearms enthusiasts in general? Personally I say yes.George A. Romero’s classic Night of the Living Dead is probably most responsible for creating the modern type of zombie story, as a sort of survival situation in the face of overwhelming odds. It’s not uncommon for zombie stories to end with the entire cast dying. So anyone who enjoys a work of fiction, might end up mentally placing themselves in that situation, and wondering just how to survive when the situation seems rigged to be impossible. It’s an interesting challenge for the intellect for one.I think zombies do a very good job of encompassing two very primal human fears. Fear of the dead, and fear of being eaten.
