Following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officially making a handful of updates to their "Zombie Preparedness" section of its website, fans can't help but think that the government knows something we don't and that "World War Z" is officially upon us. Thanks in large part to The Walking Dead, zombies are arguably more popular than ever, with the CDC adding the section to their website back in 2011, while admitting it was merely there to entertain horror fans. However, given that we're currently still coping with a global pandemic, the suggested protocols are surprisingly more relevant now than ever before, as it still has a number of helpful tips to prevent the spread of any infection, be it otherworldly or based in reality.
In the early days of Hollywood, zombies came in all shapes and forms, whether they be the undead come back to life or merely living people who were under all sorts of voodoo spells. In 1968, George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead helped create their contemporary concept of the creatures, which were reanimated corpses who fed on human flesh. In the decades since, the monster's popularity only grew, with author Max Brooks releasing The Zombie Survival Guide back in 2003, which offered practical tips on how to best survive an attack from the famous creature. Brooks went on to write the follow-up World War Z, recalling fictional accounts in the zombie apocalypse, which was then turned into a Brad Pitt-starring movie.
