Zombies in Pop Culture and "Impluse."
The general public has been made aware of zombies with the explosion of these undead beings in pop culture due to television shows such as The Walking Dead and iZombie, as well as films such as Night of the Living Dead and World War Z. However, what the general public knows about zombies is very far from what zombies originally were in Haitian Voodoo, and their original representation in films like White Zombie with Bela Lugosi.
In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Brandi Jackola, and Patrick Devlin are joined by author Keith R.A. DeCandido to discuss zombies and the episode "Impulse." We also discuss George Romero, the film White Zombie, Haitian Voodoo, and our favorite metaphors in zombie films.
