From Today's NYTimes

“You walk the mall and consumers look like zombies,” said Mr. Morris of Wachovia, after visiting a mall last week. “They’re there in person, but not in spirit.”

So, it only took the New York Times 20 years to realize the truth of the film? Is Romero being too subtle?

Well, the comparison is from the banking bloviator. So yes, I'm sure the subtlty was wasted on those too busy making money and consuming to think about what the hell we do with our lives as we wait to die.

Hello, I recently found your blog when I was looking for your book "Gospel of the Living Dead." I am doing research on the apocalypse (and Revelation) and have a section specifically devoted to Zombies. Its nice to see I'm not the only one obsessed with the living dead.

"Shaun of the Dead" has a great scene as part of the beginning credits that shows the zombie-fication of modern society; how people stumble and moan through their monotonous consumer based lives.
