A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 28: Fantasy Squad – Zombies

ZIt might be an obvious choice, but who wouldn’t include Zombies as part of their theme – they’re awesome! Much like vampires, zombies have been portrayed in a variety of ways and apart from the (mostly) undead part – writers have enjoyed to play with the rules and, well, basically scare us half to death. If we’re not laughing that is (see Shaun of the Dead)!

Zombies appear extensively in myth and folklore. I could write an essay on that alone, but instead I’ll cut straight to the fun part. I’m going to finish the theme with a final top-ten list. These are my own personal favourite depictions of zombies in media, and include film, television and a music video!

I didn’t rank them, but you’re welcome to. I’d love to hear about your favourites, so feel free to leave your list in the comments.

So that brings the A to Z Challenge to a close. I hope you enjoyed my fantasy squad, and I’d like to thank all those who joined me on the journey. I’ve enjoyed reading your comments and discussing the various creatures with you.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I’ve lost count how many people are doing zombies today 🙂 Love it. Warm Bodies is such a good movie isn’t it – the book is great too. I haven’t seen iZombie yet, but it is in my to watch list – sounds good and Tumblr seem to just be catching up as I’ve seen a few gif sets lately.
    Thank you for all the most entertaining posts this month, they have been great.

    • Thanks, Tasha. It’s been great sharing the journey with you. I’ve had tremendous fun. Oh, and I think you’ll really enjoy iZombie when you get round to seeing it 😀

    • Thanks, Patricia – it was a great month! I’ll take that recommendation as I enjoyed the film so much, and add the book to my list 😀 I appreciate all your support during the challenge.

  2. I love iZombie, as you might already know since I have coffee shared it. : ) And Warm Bodies was so icky and romantic, a fantastic combo. BIG Congratulations! Your theme was fun and informative. A great contribution to A to Z.

    • Thanks, Robin 🙂 I’m glad you think so. I did know about your love for iZombie – your enthusiasm was contagious and I made sure I got access to the show! Thanks for your support during the challenge 🙂

  3. I’m not a huge fan of zombies, but I’ve enjoyed some iterations of them over the years. Not sure I’d want them on my squad, though, haha. No one would survive the night!

  4. Congratulations on the end! 😀

    I confess, I’m much more interested in zombies thematically than I am in any particular movie or whatever. I did love the books World War Z and Breathers, though.

I’d love to hear from you.
