How to Market to Your Customers- Six Proven Methods

Unless you have been living under a rock and avoiding all social media, you will likely hear chattering about The Last of Us. ExpressVPN’s blog piece introduces you to the different types of zombies in this HBO gem.

Both zombies and zombie films are pervasive, resilient, and appear in waves. The many kinds of zombies may be found below. If you chance to run across one of these people while traveling, it will do you well to be prepared.

1. Voodoo victim

Zombies may trace their roots all the way back to the Afro-Caribbean religion of Vodou when humans were transformed into mindless slaves using pufferfish extract and magic rituals.

2. Soulless flesh

The flesh of these zombies has been reanimated. The spirit has passed through the portal to the afterlife, and the body has returned to earth via supernatural or scientific methods.

3. Demonic possession

Those gory monsters may be a pain at times. They can infest just about any surface, even human beings.

4. Viral Infection

These zombies aren’t really dead; instead, they’ve contracted a virus that messes with their brains. It’s possible that this is a spontaneously mutated variant of a common virus, or it might be a biological weapon created by humans.

5. Parasitic Infection

Identical to the afflicted, except instead of a virus, it’s annoying parasitic critters consuming and manipulating the brain.

This new strain of infection was conceived after seeing the zombification of insects by a fungus belonging to the cordyceps family.

A more up-to-date version of the soulless flesh. Technology is used ingeniously to bring the dead back to life.
