These are all survival fantasies, particularly Zombie films. In them , the baggage of overpopulation (presumably degenerates, though occasionally, tragically, a good guy — for stakes) is cleanly erased or dehumanized to make room for those who would live, whom are stand-ins for the audience that dreams they will outlast their neighbors. When people say trite things like, “Gotta prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse!” the mean a world where all humanity is wiped away except for them and maybe someone new to mate with. It’s an ugly genre.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
