“Pop Culture has taken over America.  People are heavily influenced by what they see in the media, be it newspaper, magazine, radio, TV, movies and the internet.  The University of Baltimore is now offering a course called Zombie 101.  Why would they offer a class like this at a major university?  If  Zombies and zombie movies have been around for 50 years, how has technology made them more interesting now?” (You MUST write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    I think this will catch on because some people want to be a zombie and stuff. Personaly i would not take the class im not saying that i am scared i just would not want to take the class at all. Some people might want to take it but i don’t want to at all.

    I think this will catch on because A LOT of people love zombie movies or vampire movies for example Twilight got so big it wasn’t even funny. But i understand why the question comes up. But this really will catch on.

    They would offer a class like this because Zombie movies have been around for about 50 years. So now people that’s in college and stuff can now take classes on doing Zombie parts in movies. Technology has made them more interesting now because the directors in movies make the Zombies look so real.

    Well evere since they have had better technology to make the scences look better and that has made people more attracted to the zombies. And people seem to like that they never really die and feed on the humans flesh. The computers has helped made zombies look better and more realistic. Instead of just having white make up and a little blood.

    Technology i think hasn’t really made a difference on these movies. The only way it has changed is its not black and white no more and internet gives the poems and books more interesting words. Like now we have color every thing and they can search scary and descriptive words. Vampire and zombies has such descriptive words like bloody vans in dark night see it already sounds creepy.

    i think they offer this class to people that like zombies and would want to go to a class about them. Technology has changed zombies a lot. Zombies look more real and when they kill someone the blood looks more real. i think that the zombies 101 would be a cool class to take !

    i think that this course would be the worst thing they ever thought of. The technology has made this more interesting because their is so much that the technology is letting everyone know about it. If this had been around for over 50 years then i think that people would be more interested in zombies too much. I don’t agree with the people who invented the zombie course. Why would anyone want to learn about zombies. I really don’t think that they exist. their can be some reasons why they are not real.

    I think that the University of Baltimore would offer a class like this because they know that people are interested in zombies. They probably think that if alot of people are interested in zombies then alot of people should take the class. So that’s why there offering one like Zombies 101. Technology has made zombies more interesting now because more movies are starting to come out about zombies and people are watching them. By using technology, there letting everyone know about it.

    Ahh!! Zombie’s!!! Run away!!! Their going to eat you alive!!!!!!!!!
    No just kidding lol, zombie’s are scary in some of the movie’s that come out today…
    But the only reason why is because of all the effect’s, make-up, acting, and how real it looks!
    I could see why some ” Paranoid superstitious” person would fear them.
    I mean you have your green screen’s that give you GREAT effect’s and you have the set’s then you have the actor’s and most of all…. The make-up Artist!
    I think that the Artist is one of the most important things. You can’t have a scary looking zombie with only red eyes and a few cuts. No! You’ve got to have the whole thing!

    I think that the University of Baltimore would teach a class for this is because some people would like to no more about flesh and blood. I think its a good idea to have a class like this. Back then i think the zombies weren’t as good as they are now. They look more real, about 50 years ago they looked fake and it just looked like people with blood dripping off of them instead looking like zombies. I think it will catch on.

    I think they have gotten alot scarier. the first zombie movies were a little bit like the ones of of michal jacksons thriller. now they came up with resident evil and dawn of the dead i sure do hope it don’t turn out to make zombies gay like they did vampires and were wolfs of twilight. so that was my comment ok from the mummy 1955 to resident evil 5 2010 zombies have increased alot.

    i think that the only reason they started zombie class was so people could make money. and so that the people taking the class could learn about zombies. and the people who think they can be the best at being a zombie can be better at it. and learn how to dress like them .plus the zombie attitude is kinda cool. but some people just do that so they will get attention. so that’s what i think the zombie class is for .but mostly its for trying to be a zombie which most people don’t know how to do but. i don’t want to be mean so they are good. and i would like to go to the classes so then i could scare the little kids on Halloween. and i am going to be in a haunted house so that would be cool.

    I think that It will catch on like really fast. I think that because everyone loves the movie twilight and they will like it. I also think that as time progressed Zombies, and Zombie movies have caught on more because of the production. And, I think sense the production and skilled people at the computers is why they are so popular. But I think that maybe the classes might be too high to pay and so people might not go.

    I think that they would have horro things in universitys because maybe the student body referrs to sxcarey things to learn and also because the teachers of the unviersty actually get the students to comunicate and work better with using examples that their interested in. But i dont see why the universitys would make zombies and zombie a big part of their university because maybe everyone isnt interested in that kind of things but if they are then they can go to that school but if not then basically dont go at all .

Many things have changed throughout the years with publicity and fame in the zombie world industry. so i believe that the more and more things change it will make it become a lot more popular.its like they make it look soooo real!!!
