I LOVE horror movies. I grew up watching Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Blob, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, as well as all the classic monster movies. My favorite cartoon as a kid was Scooby-Doo. He and his gang were always solving mysteries involving ghosts, monsters, and curses. Vampires were the most fascinating to me. They never aged, could change into animals, had hypnotizing abilities, wore the best clothes, and lived a lavish lifestyle. Of course, they did have some limitations…at least the vampires in films and literature from my youth. Now, they sparkle in the sun and feed mainly on animals or get their blood from a blood bank.

While vampires still hold some allure for me, I have become somewhat obsessed with zombies since the premiere of the AMC television show The Walking Dead. Based on a comic book, the premise of the show is about a group of people surviving a zombie apocalypse. The Walking Dead has made the zombie quite popular.  Well, The Walking Dead doesn’t get all the credit. Zombies have been around for quite awhile. The show is just keeping them in the limelight for right now.

Since I have been exploring the zombie culture, I have discovered there is a Zombie Research Society, a 5K adventure race with zombies, zombie walks in various places (New Orleans included), a film being made locally, a Facebook event page for a Zombie Apocalypse, as well as a month devoted to Zombie Awareness.  

Yes, MAY is Zombie Awareness Month. And, I’ve decided to devote my leisure time this entire month becoming more aware of the ZOMBIE. The zombie books I will be reading this month include:  The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith, and World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks. I have compiled a list of zombie movies ( Zombie Movies 2012) to watch throughout the month. My list doesn’t even scratch the surface when it comes to zombie movies. Netflix has 55 pages designated to zombies. Who knew? My list consists of movies that were suggested by Rob Zombie (musician and horror filmmaker) and some zombie film sites. If funds are available by the end of the month and my brains are still intact, I may just have to throw a party to celebrate my new-found awareness of the Zombie.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.” ~ Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
