Yesterday PZ Myers threatened me with an attack by a zombie. Zombies are perhaps the movie monster that I find most compelling. I’ve actually had nightmares about zombies. As a child I was afraid of ghosts, and I am not afraid of zombies in the same way that I was afraid of ghosts, indeed, I am not really that scared of zombies. But the idea does occasionally give me some very weird and unsettling dreams. In addition, I find the idea compelling. I find my self sort of day dreaming about what would happen if the world turned into a Romero movie, not out of fear, but just because it’s sort of fun, really there is no better word for it then compelling. But why is it so compelling?
