[Zombies] The evolution of the genre.
Today is watching a movie from George A. Romero (more presisamente The Return of the Living Dead). That made me ponder the zombies have changed since the beginning of the genre. Because of this I decided to do a "timeline Zombie" (so to speak, it is not a timeline, but as you have noticed, is not available on XD correct term) where, in my opinion, I will show (although probably already know, but there are usually one or the other ignorant to the subject, clarify that it is an offense) as zombie genre has evolved from its beginnings through time: The characteristics of a zombie, their causes, as have survived the stupid protagonists of his films, stories, and novels, etc.. Let's start: First: What is a zombie? (Genre) This question must be very obvious to most as it is for me, but in reality everyone knows well what is the definition of a zombie? Well, in this case, is defined as a zombie, for most people not familiar with the genre, a person fellecida that comes to life through a magical method or "natural" so to speak, although most of the causes are the result of human intervention (with potions, gases nosivos, virus, etc..), and is dedicated to roam the earth looking for living people to devour the brain (and other body parts now). They are also infected. They are living people who appear to undead, but they really are not dead but sick, but with a significant deterioration of the brain and brainstem and that like the above are dedicated to feast on humanity and unleash the apocalypse in droves. In both cases this is because the aforementioned cannibal can not reason, due to brain damage because his brain dead and putrid are only scratching the opsiones, chewing, eating, walking or running (in some cases, although If this happens we are well screwed). For these reasons, the next time you to go to bed with a "woman" (or man for that matter), estimated Copra, consider that perhaps might be nibbling on the ear and not fondly. Start of the "plague": Worry a lot, because Dr. House also will eat you alive! As we have seen, in almost every movie, cartoon, series, etc. of the zombie genre this whole mess started in some weird way is unexpected, even the players sometimes do not realize that Satan's army has risen to devour the brains their peers. There are several common and rare variants so that the dead walk again. In the beginning of the zombie genre (before George A. Romero directed the famous "Night of the Living Dead";), the zombies were a few corpses back to life by the magic of some sorcerer who used them for malevolent purposes such as revenge and stuff, and these few deserebrados followed their orders as slaves. This myth originated from Haiti and other Caribbean countries, where, when someone died, I used to be found wandering the cemetery and other places, such as unconscionable and stupid, and they are the wizards atribuhia that voodoo that used as slaves (albeit rather were drugged to appear dead, hypnotized and esclavisados in banana plantations). In the first movie that defined the zombie as we know, The night of the living dead, the strong wind for the dead live again was apparently issued a satellite radiation if I remember correctly, although the movie makes clear that this is doubtful. After this, there arose new ways of making the dead walk: :zombie: Radioactive substances. :zombie: Virus (such as the T virus, Solanoum, anger, etc.).. :zombie: Black Magic (even sometimes). :zombie: Extraterrestrial beings (as in Simpsons Hit and Run). :zombie: Gases nosivos. :zombie: Wrath of God or the Devil. :zombie: A bad hamburger. :zombie: And many others who do not remember now. The characteristics of a rotten: If this happens, those with a zombie. As I said in the beginning, the zombies were merely human slaves warlock brought them back to life, but this evolved to the point that these deserebrados, reviving as it may, and could run up and deceive persons or to use weapons (sometimes not very effective due to lack of coordination), here some of its features based on some movies: Das Kabinett des Dr. Caligari. (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) - 1920 Das Kabinett des Dr. Caligari is considered the first zombie movie in history, check in Germany (yes, Germany, sure did not expect.) That's why I love Germany! : zombie: In this movie, the first of zombies in history, represents a kind of zombie, a hypnotized man in charge of one dr. Caligari who murders people to your order.
Night of the Living Dead (1968):
:zombie: Dead to rise in the morgues and can walk, throaty sounds and are dedicated to walking around looking for fresh meat from which to feed.
:zombie: They can shatter windows and doors in droves, even though these are boarded up.
:zombie: Recognize and afraid of fire.
:zombie: You can also use stones as weapons destriur things.
:zombie: These are people who just died recently, returning to life, and have not yet decomposed.
:zombie: People who are bitten, suffering from fever and other symptoms and die and then come back as zombies hungry for brains.
:zombie: Die shooting them, seemingly everywhere, I'm not sure.
The Return of the Living Dead (1985) and the others:
:zombie: The zombies are intelligent, can speak and easily deceive other people alive to attract, say much brains !!!!! (Brains) (The Return of the Living Dead)
:zombie: Do not die with nothing, except an atomic bomb or electrocuted, but give them twenty headshots not die again.
:zombie: Only eat brains, then leave the remains of people.
:zombie: They run well, those who are in good condition obviously rotten, but also revived can not run.
:zombie: They eat brains because they suffer the pain that causes them to be rotting.
:zombie: Sorry, I need to add that the zombies are attracted to the club XD.
The video dead (1987)
: zombie: The zombies come out of a TV damned (so to speak)
: zombie: the zombies think they are alive, and when a human is scared of them remember that they are dead and I feel like killing uncontrolled.
: zombie: The repel the mirrors.
: zombie: You can destroy them with some strange ways, difficult to explain, so I recommend you see it, if they can ask me the link of the movie.
RECOMMENDED, GREAT MOVIE.
28 days later (2002):
:zombie: This time, they are not undead, the zombies are chimpanzees infected with rabies or something.
:zombie: The infection is spread not only travez the bite of an infected, but also by contact with blood, a splash, a drop in the eye, sex with a zombie (if someone do it o_O) and so on.
:zombie: Although it has already been seen before, I had not seen and I quote one example, the zombies are.
:zombie: And as in "Shaun of the Dead" can be mistaken for a zombie not know you're a human brain alive and fresh, imitating his actions and other movements, sounds, etc..
I Am Legend (2009):
* I just want to make clear that they are not zombies, are vampires: D
Hahaha. @Dramallo Thanks for the contribution: D
Resident Evil: Saga (I think it's the best description, because is not a trilogy anymore)
:zombie: This time, besides the classic zombies infected with the T virus, also generated mutations were strange, like Nemesis, (If you're the team you're screwed STARS) and the Executioner.
:zombie: The animals, like dogs, also mutate the virus, so to speak, as it apparently did not have skin, but also want to eat your brains in a stew.
:zombie: In the third part, we see that the zombies still have some degree of intelligence, can remember things and how to use, yet are far from trying not masticarte.
:zombie: The deserebrados proven not to be so unintelligent when cabaret tunnels.
:zombie: There is a cure for the T virus .
Pet Semetery: I and II
:zombie: In this pair of films, the dead return to life through the magic of Aboriginal land, which states that when someone dies and is buried there this raises.
:zombie: This type of zombie, despite having the basic features, intelligent and evil, not only wants your brains, you kill the way it is, even trying to embestirte with a truck to you and your boyfriend fat.
:zombie: Animals returning from hell also, but still bite you, if I'm wrong esque and saw no evil, do not combiertes into a zombie, I guess because they are not haunted and you asshole decided not to die sooner if wanted to be a zombie which is very cool.
:zombie: Zombies will melt with fire, wax-like O_o
:zombie: THROUGH a very nice device (electric dog collar) and you can have your own pet zombie-slave who does not devour you (unless the collar fails)
:zombie: The main zombie, Fido, has feelings, develops toward his "family" after a time for adventure, and no need to use one of these necklaces.
:zombie: They are also smart enough to attract human tricks and eat them.
:zombie: The zombies, this time, they are Yankees! are New Zealanders.
:zombie: If the infected poison, become Heracles.
:zombie: Also there are mutations, such as that Lionel's mother tube (character) but not to c * pits is that in which mutual, pff.
:zombie: The zombies are aggressive and dangerous extremadanmente is full of Gore.
:zombie: And there is a monstrito: D
Michael Jackson: Thriller
:zombie: We have shown that you can go from being a werewolf (or cat) in a zombie movie real dancer.
:zombie: The zombies come out of their graves to dance, but beware, it is only with Michael.
Here ends my humble opinion, is not the best, since no taaaanto of zombies, but a friend forced me (Rocio Céspedez Friendman), I accept criticism of any kind, thanks for reading (if esque've read) and sorry for spelling errors: D:
