CONCEPT: UNDEAD PHYSIOLOGY

One of the most common and popular elements revolves around the living dead. There are a number of examples of undead creatures that have been depicted in fiction ranging from zombies, vampires, and many more. Being undead is a rather curious form of existence that comes in many forms. In some cases, your body is deceased, but your mind is intact and still active. In other cases, your body is animated, but your mind is a blank slate and you’re a mindless abomination. When I think about it, it would be strange and unusual if I was unable to breathe, tire, or have a heartbeat while still being able to move. In my upcoming fourth short story, the supervillain the main character will face will be either undead or something resembling it. Unlike cliches like zombies and vampires, I am planning on making this individual something completely entirely different. Based on what I have planned so far, the whole idea is already giving me the goosebumps. This new short story, which will commence creation after my current third short story is completed, will be yet another example of asking the age-old question: “How do you kill something that is already dead?”

  1. I’m kinemortophobic so I often think about this… Even though I know it is impossible to run into zombies. I hope you can figure out a way to kill them- I’ve heard moving to very cold climates would low them, chopping them up into multiple pieces, fire, gunshot to the brain… Who knows!

  2. Always been interested in the undead and the theories surrounding. I like to think a third party parasite or something similar is actually the one moving the body — seems pretty legit to me — but who knows? Have fun writing it! ^^
