The Power of Love and Zombies

Everyone here at the Zombie Emergency Relief Organization is thrilled at the movie, Warm Bodies, that will be released February 2013.

This is no ordinary zombie movie. These are zombies with feelings, the ability to learn and the restraint to curtail their instinct to eat anything that is human and moves. It’s as if the author spent time at our haven and wrote about our orphaned zombie children.

The Christmas season reminds us to hope, dream and keep alive our childlike wonder. In many ways, that is also what we ask of people who wish to be involved with our organization. You must be flexible enough to hope for a medical treatment for zombification. You need to be able to dream of a day we can all live together without the need for muzzles, hobbles, and sturdy wire fences. Most of all, you have to accept that zombies are people, too, even though they don’t have a pulse, are in a state of decomposition, and preferentially eat raw meat.  When you suspend your disbelief at Christmas time concerning Santa, miracles, and the goodness of humanity, turn that same all-loving, all-accepting attitude to the zombie children who live among us. Our hope is that this movie will capture the full intensity and depth of the zombie experience.

In the meantime,  if you have any novels, short stories, or short films you’d like us to review on the site, send details to
