KAFKA SAYS YOU’RE DEAD MEAT

If late author Franz Kafka were to write a horror movie, we bet it would involve zombies.

Keep in mind, this is the guy who wrote about getting turned into a giant beetle with a rotting apple lodged in its back.  His sense of the absurdity of modern life, his expression of powerlessness against impending doom, and his dry sense of humor in the face of certain death all reflect classic zombie themes.

So it’s not surprising that we at ZRS love Kafka’s writing. Here’s one of his quotes that has a decidedly zombie bent:

“In a fight between you and the world, bet on the world.”

Fast or slow, living or undead, when the raving horde comes it’s coming for us all.  And it won’t stop until every last human being is either chewed up beyond recognition, or one of them.

Try as you might to get away, to escape the powers that are turning you and everyone else into zombies.  Try to be an individual, to walk your own path, to find your own solutions to the problems you face.  But when zombies come it’s literally you against the world.

Any way you slice it those are some downright deadly odds.
