Vampires and Zombies!

Zombies and Vampires!

In one genre of film, the elite are supreme and powerful and the 'normals' are weak and expendable. But am I talking about vampire films, where the vampires are strong and the masses are weak, or am I talking about zombie films, where the survivors are strong and the masses are weak? Actually... let's talk about both!

Zombies can instinctively tell who else is a zombie. They hate the living and want to kill them, to drag them down to their own level. Vampires, however, love being better than everyone else. They only chose certain select untermensch to be raised up to vampire level. They revel in their superior qualities. Likewise, in my essay on "trash culture" I point out that the dregs of society actively dislike anyone intelligent or talented, or 'different'. This is like the zombies aggression towards non-zombies, and the normals aggression towards vampires. The untermensch, the trash culture elements, wish everyone to be equally limited, simply because it's not fair that some should be excellent.

Of course the zombie tendency to eat/sniff out "BRAAAINS!!" (a hunger for what they lack leads to a need to destroy/equalize that which seems beyond them) adds more weight to this nicely-formulated metaphor.

Have pinched this for a discussion on a community - thought I ought to let you know and will let you know any feedback!

Cool, thanks for telling me!

Interesting stuff


It is absolute justice that the elites should rule the masses. Go vampires.
