Zombies And The End Of The World

1291 words - 6 pages

When it comes to the end of the world, most people think about God coming or the sun exploding. There is one other thing on the list that has the film industry thriving with money. Zombies are on the top list of how the world might end. Zombies are a body reanimated after the person dies. It also needs a virus to help reanimate the body. Zombies are one of the most talked about way that the world might end.
One of the most famous stories about zombies is the during WWII, the nazis had a secret lab that they would do experiments on the bodies of some the Jews that they killed. These projects were done by two teams: one military and one civilian (“Povtin Newsly”). They have uncovered some documents that were labelled with the name “Project Z”. They found in the files they found pictures of the bodies that they tried to reanimate. The Nazis worked really hard to try and reanimate the bodies, but what people have found with the files that they were never successful. All the zombie research was funded by Reichspost, under the Reich Research Council (“Povtin Newsly”). No matter what they did to try to perfect the virus, they never found the right chemicals to use. The research was shut down after the war had ended. Also all their work was destroyed after the war. They never did go back and try to perfect the virus.
It is said that if there is ever a virus that does reanimate the body, it will spread fast. It will probably start in a small town or something like that. Then people not knowing that they have the virus will fly different cities. That’s when the virus will spread to other people. Then those people will go to other places and then it will spread to the world. It is like any other virus, once it is out there it is out there. The virus will soon adopt and mutate to become something more than what scientist can cope with. It is said that it takes at least 24 hours to have the virus be in full effect.
In the first hour his feel pain and discoloration where they got infected. Hour 5 there is a fever of 99-103 degrees. Hour 8 the fever will increase. Hour 11 they will have paralysis of the lower body and slowed heart rate. Hour 16 they will go into a coma. Hour 20 they will die and have no brain activity. Hour 23 the bodies becomes reanimated. (“ZombieFacts”)
The virus travels when the infected bites a person that isn’t infected.
There are many types of zombie whether it be video games, movies, or television shows. The creators of the movies or shows all have different versions of the zombies and they portray what they think the zombies. The directors that created Resident Evil had their own spin on zombies. They had them be infected by the T Virus. This virus was created by a corporation called the Umbrella Corporation. What it did was pretty much the same thing any zombie virus does to the people. The twist that they put into their movies is that they were experimenting on other subjects and mutating them to be powerful monsters....
