Zombies are everywhere. AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead is just the latest evidence of our fascination with the undead. Hollywood’s been churning out zombie films since 1932, when Bela Lugosi starred in White Zombie. It’s that time of the year, when such classics as Night of the Living Dead, Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, and 28 Days Later pop up on television. Zombie outbreaks are common themes in Halloween episodes of The Simpsons and Southpark, too. They’ve even become a popular subject for video games, like “Dead Rising” and “Left 4 Dead.”
You may actually have seen some walking around campus last fall, part of WTBU’s radio drama Undead End.
Given that it’s Halloween, when zombie interest reaches fever pitch, BU Today asks students, “How would you attempt to survive a zombie attack?”
“YouSpeak” typically appears each Monday.
