Zombies! (They're Coming To Get Us)

I think the zombies are already here. It's a metaphor for modern man, right? Isn't that what the zombie movies are really telling us? It's not that they're horror movies, they're social commentary. They're political critique. Existential ruminations about the loss of self. About the sameness,about powerlessness, about carelessness. The undead aren't coming to actually eat our brains. Our brains are being eaten by modern distractions (read b.s.). We have to take our metaphorical shotguns and torches and fend them off! Forget about "montée hors de la merde." Fight the zombies!
