One Critic’s View on the Difference Between Zombies and Vampires…

In a recent New Yorker article, David Denby writes, “Vampirism, as everyone says, is about sex and violence. But what is the fascination with the hungry undead? . . . Are they what we fear we might become if we let ourselves go — soulless vessels of pure appetite, both ravaged and ravaging?” What are the differences between our fascination with vampires as opposed to zombies?

    I don’t think there is a difference. Teenagers today are fascinated about the “undead” because its a whole new twist on the reality we face everyday. Don’t get me wrong, I’m the same way too, because now there are so many different zombie, apocalyptic, and vampire books in our reading genre. But I also think there’s a thrill behind reading books like this, because it get our brains thinking on how we would react to threats like this.
