"There’s a deep link between the zombie and the way human beings see their enemies and sometimes the way they see other people. Christians really do believe that the majority of people go to hell and they believe that human depravity is total. A zombie is a perfect image of the way to see the sinful person. They see them as zombies. Those of us who aren’t religious see the religious people as zombies. We all feel we’re in a world of zombies. If you go back to Night of the Living Dead, life feels like that sometimes. You’re surrounded by people that just want to eat you."
