Could Zombies Really Occur?

Welcome to the m0vie blog’s zombie week! It’s a week of zombie-related movie discussions and reviews as we come up to Halloween, to celebrate the launch of Frank Darbont’s The Walking Dead on AMC on Halloween night. So be sure to check back all week, as we’ll be running posts on the living dead.

I know it’s a bit lazy to just post a link rather than coming up with any original content, and I apologise sincerely, but it just fits this week’s theme so well that it would be a crime not to post it (even though it’s a good three years old). Anyway, the guys at cracked have put together a list of ways that a zombie apocalypse could actually occur. My brother, a science student, actually concedes that these are all reasonably close to possible. It’s a great read for anyone with an interest in the topic, or just looking for some food for nightmares (it being Halloween and all). Enjoy!


It could happen to you?

For those looking for a more feasible (and less science-fiction-y) account of real life Voodoo zombies, Time ran an excellent article on the culture.

  1. viruses do exist that cause similar symptoms to what you might see in a zombie. There are also numerous parasites that actually take over their hosts body and make them do things. For instance there is a bug that will burrow into a spider and take control. The bug makes the spider spin in a cocoon in order to molt. Once the bug is done with the spider it kills the spider then uses the cocoon. Voodoo zombies are also said to exist in the world using voodoo magic.

    And who knows what is going to happen in the future with all of the bio technology being created. We could be just one lab accident away….
