Call of Duty: Black Ops

Image via Wikipedia

“Pop Culture is everywhere.  Zombies are the newest craze to take over horror culture, now that vampires have died down a bit.  The University of Baltimore is now offering a course called Zombie 101. Zombies were featured on an episode of Glee as well as many other TV shows.  The most popular downloadable content for a video game this past year has been Red Dead Redemption – the zombie pack.  Yesterday, the download “Escalation” for the most popular Game of the Year, Call of Duty: Black Ops came featuring zombies with plenty of celebrity guest appearances and directed by Mr. Zombie, George Romero. 

A)  If you REFLECT on pop culture, Why do you think America has this sudden fascination with zombies? 

B)  If  Zombies and zombie movies have been around for 50 years, how have advances in technology changed Zombies and made them more interesting now?”

C)  Even though Black Ops is already a popular game, why do you think this zombie download will make it more popular/less popular?
