Explained: How zombie films may have prepared fans for Covid-19 pandemic – The Indian Express

In the horror subgenre we know as zombie movies, you might find a ring of the ongoing pandemic. From the pioneering Night of the Living Dead (1968) to the recent South Korean production Train to Busan (2016), zombies infect ordinary people and turn them into zombies, and, just like it is happening in Covid-19, the uninfected around them live in panic, trying to stay safe.

It turns out that the connection may be deeper than just a resemblance between fiction and fact. If you like horror, particularly zombie films, watching them may have prepared you better for the Covid-19 pandemic. Thats the conclusion drawn by researchers who have published their findings in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.

Why zombies?

The study actually covered horror fans in general, as well as morbidly curious individuals. The horror fans were people who watched any kind of apocalyptic films zombie movies, post-apocalyptic movies, and alien-invasion movies.

However, I think zombie movies in particular bear resemblance literally and symbolically to the pandemic, said Coltan Scrivner, a University of Chicago PhD student who researches the psychology of horror, and who led the new study. His colleagues were Pennsylvania State University psychologist and professor emeritus John Johnson, and Danish horror experts Mathias Clausen and Jens Kjeldgaard-Christiansen.

Zombie outbreaks almost by definition are pandemics, Scrivner told The Indian Express, by email. The cause is almost always some sort of infection. Characters in zombie films learn how to avoid getting infected and often try to find a cure for the infection. In addition, they learn what the world looks like when society begins to break down or no longer functions as normal. Although exaggerated in the films, this resembles a real-world pandemic in some ways.

But how does watching such films help?

* The information we obtain from an imagined zombie apocalypse, the study suggests, may serve us in analogous situations in the real world. They [zombie film fans] reported feeling like they knew what to buy for the pandemic and that the consequences of the pandemic did not take them by surprise, Scrivner said.

* Fans of horror films were found to exhibit less psychological distress during Covid-19: The study describes them as more psychologically resilient. In addition to learning how to navigate dangerous situations through simulations, people may also learn to navigate their own emotions Presumably, frequent users of horror media often employ emotion regulation strategies, which may lead to improved emotional coping skills, it says.

How does the study draw these conclusions?

It surveyed over 300 participants, who answered a variety of questions. First, they completed a Pandemic Psychological Resilience Scale created by the researchers to determine whether they were showing positive resilience or in psychological distress. Participants also completed a Morbid Curiosity Scale. A third scale was the Big 5 that measures dimensions of personality including neuroticism, agreeableness, extraversion, openness to experience, and conscientiousness. Finally, participants rated how much of a fan they were of several different genres of movies, such as horror, romance, comedy, zombie films, etc.

Using these questions, we were about to find that, controlling for the Big 5 personality traits, horror fans and morbidly curious people were more psychologically resilient during the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic in the US. We also found that fans of prepper genres the zombie, apocalyptic, and alien-invasion films reported being more prepared for the pandemic.

For resilience against the Covid-19 pandemic, it may be too late. But according to Johnson, the psychologist who collaborated on the study, it is never too late to make ready for the next hurdle in life.

Im not sure that watching such movies now would be helpful for our current situation. However, my understanding of pandemics and other life-challenging events is that similar future challenges are absolutely inevitable, Johnson said in comments published on the Pennsylvania State University website.

Both Johnson and Scrivner believe that fiction is not just an idle pastime but a way to imagine simulated realities that prepare us for future challenges. Scrivner told The Indian Express: Horror in particular offers a way to safely experience dangerous environments and dangerous social interactions. This lets people do two things:

* People can practise being afraid or being anxious and learning how to overcome that feeling. This likely can lead to better emotion regulation skills and, ultimately, better psychological resilience.

* People can also learn some specific information. For example, people who watched pandemic-themed movies like Contagion may have learned what a real pandemic could look like. This could allow people to be better prepared for when a real pandemic like Covid-19 occurs.

Contagion (2011) is about a deadly flu-like infection that spreads in the US. Although a decade old now, it became one of Americas most streamed films in the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic, the study notes.

The 10 best and worst cities to survive a zombie apocalypse revealed – The Sun

THE 10 best - and worst - cities to survive a zombie apocalypsehave been revealed in a new study.

Environmental experts ranked the areas based on self-sustainability factors including air quality, solar energy and farming.

5

5

5

Those living in Cambridge can breathe a sigh of relief as they topped the leaderboard with a score of 348 out of 700.

But Oxfordwas ranked the city least likely to survive with a score of just 82.

According to the expert's research, the city is most likely to survive a zombie apocalypse after being awarded the highest number of points available for the number of onshore wind farms and recycling centres, and scoring highly for the percentage of farmland available.

Swansea follows close behind with 341, thanks to its vast outdoor space per 100,000 population.

It also has acres of farmlands and plenty of farmers to ensure enough food can go around.

Belfast came in third position with a score of 329 for its number of onshore wind farms and large farming community.

The team at SaveOnEnergy also judged cities on the amount of farmers in each city, recycling centres, wind farms and outdoor space.

They awarded each city points out of 100, revealing the 10 best and 10 worst to live in should zombies attack.

So what about those cities that might struggle a little they were to become flooded with flesh-eating monsters?

It's not looking good for Oxford, which was ranked the city least likely to survive with a score of just 82 out of 700.

Despite having some of the most farmland of all cities studied, Oxford was let down by its lack of onshore wind farms, lack of outdoor space, and clean air.

At number two, Prestoncame in with just 104 points out of 700.

The Lancashire based city had one of the lowest farming populations and had some the least parks per 100,000 population.

Third the worst for Derby, with a score of just 108 thanks to its poor levels of air pollution.

It also had one of the lowest numbers of recycling centres per 100,000 people in the population, thus resulting in a low overall score.

Onshore wind farms help to generate electricity through the use of wind, which is useful in a zombie apocalypse when electricity is sparse or non-existent.

Zendaya, zombies and asteroids: The best new films coming to Netflix in 2021 – CBC.ca

The final months of 2020 saw the streaming wars escalate with both Disney and Warner Bros. throwing down the gauntlet, teasing fans with brand-name blockbusters, franchise-friendly seriesand a parade of big-screen movies soon to be streaming at aportal near you.

This week, the studio that kicked offthe streaming revolution announced its 2021 slate of films.With 70 titles, Netflix is promising a new movie every week far more than the 17 new films Warner Bros. plans tostream on HBO Max in 2021.

Perhaps more surprising is how the studio is differentiating itself. In an industry where originality can be hard to come by, Netflix is embracing whatmost major studios have moved on from: the middle-sized movie.

Not quite a blockbuster, not quite an indie darling, the new slate of films features plenty oforiginal concepts with star power, not nostalgia, as the main selling feature.

Below, some of the best bets worth waiting for.

Director Zack Snyderbegan his grim and gritty career with the 2004 zombie remake ofDawn of the Dead. Nowhe's back with Army of the Dead, which adds aVegas heistand Dave Bautista to the mix.

Canadian director Mark Raso has shown a talent for ruminative character studieswithKodachrome and Copenhagen. With Awake he appears to be dipping into something more speculative. The film takes place after an event wipes out all electronics and the ability to sleep.StarsGina Rodriguez.

Director Andrew Dominik'sfilmsKilling Them Softly andThe Assassination of Jesse Jamestake place at the intersection of wounded male ego, pride and violence.Now he'sshifting his gaze to tell the story of Marilyn Monroe with Cuban Ana de Armas as the American bombshell.

From director Gitanjali Rao, Bombay Rose looks to be a luscious animated film about the love between a Hindu girl and Muslim boy. Set in an Indian city, the hand-painted film was featured at TIFF in 2019.

Netflix reportedly shelled out $20 million USfor Halle Berry's directorial debut. The film follows amixed martial arts fighter who is struggling to re-establish a relationship with her son.Halle Berry says she was struck by the screenplay which was originally built around a 20-something Irish-Catholic fighter and changedit so she could play the role. When the right director wasn't available,Berry stepped in.

Idris Elba fans may flock to the film based around the true-life Black urban-cowboys of North Philadelphia. Elba sitting tall in the saddle may be marketing muscle, but this is really Caleb McLaughlin's film (last seen in Stranger Things).

Where was this hiding? Adam McKay, the filmmaker behind The Big Short,is back with this star-packed film featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Timothe Chalamet, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep and Matthew Perry. With a story about astronomers warning about a world-smashing asteroid, it will be interesting to see how McKay pivots from more politically minded features.

This black comedy made the rounds at TIFF 2020 and starsRosamund Pike as an amoral legal guardian looking to swindle Dianne Wiest.Features a great turn by Peter Dinklage as a criminal used to getting his way.

Coming Feb.5, Zendaya collaborated with Euphoria creator Sam Levinson to shoot this intimate character study during the pandemic.The black and white film features Tenet's John David Washington as a filmmaker who is supposed to be celebrating when the evening takes a turn.

With Luce and WavesKelvin Harrison Jr.has established a reputation as an actor who creates magnetic,visceral performances. (I adored Waves, check it out.) Now he's back at the centre of Monster, playing another multilayered character ensnared by amurder plot.

Here's the big one with the big guns and the budget to match.Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson teamed up with Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot for this $160 million action film about a global hunt for Interpol's two most wanted criminals. Reynolds was great fun needling The Rock inFast & Furious: Hobbs and Shaw. No surprise Johnson recruited thecharismatic Canadian again.

Take Bend it Like Beckham, set in India and make it about skateboarding and you have Skater Girl, a new film from Manjari Makijany about a teen in rural India who dreams of competing at the national level.

While I couldn'tstick with Jason Momoa's See on Apple TV+, I'll happily click on what looks like an amped-up revenge story with Momoa as a husband hell-bent on protecting his daughter.Watch out Liam Neeson, he's coming for your turf.

Any new film from New Zealand directorJane Campion is an event. A new film starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemonsand Manitoba-bornAdam Beach is worth waiting for.Cumberbatch and Plemons play brothers in what appears to be a twisted family drama based on the novel by Thomas Savage.

I've missed Lana Condor, haven't you? The continuing adventures of Lara Jeanwrapup in February with the final instalment based on the books by Jenny Han.

Warner Bros. may have Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical In the Heights, but Netflix has the Hamilton creator'sdirectorial debut. The film stars Andrew Garfield as a New Yorker in the 90s who dreams of writing the next great musical.

Friday, 15 January 2021, 3:44 pmArticle: Dr Nayvin Gordon

The Law and Order President led his followers, carryingthe traitorous Confederate flag, to violate law and order inan attempted coup. Some of the treasonous window smasherswore T-shirts with the slogan-Camp Auschwitz and 6 MWNE (6million Jews was not enough). The Jews were exterminated bythe Nazis, as were 75 million people who died in World WarTwo defeating the Nazi Fascists.

It is obvious that aconspiracy to allow this insurrection designed to terrorizeCongress and the people was a criminal conspiracy organizedwithin the White House, FBI, military, National Guard andthe Republican Party. The Nazi Big Lie has been used byTrump for years, aided and abetted by the treasonous, racistRepublican Party and their corporate backers on Wall Street.The Big Lie was developed and promoted by the German NaziParty. Tell a lie, the bigger it is the more you tell it:The election was rigged and stolen, Covid-19 is ahoax.immigrants, and Muslims and other scapegoats are toblame for everything that goes wrong.

Are thescapegoats responsible for the over $1 Trillion tax cutTrump and the Republicans gave to Corporate WallStreet?

Did Muslims deregulate corporations and allowthem to poison workers on the job and in theirhomes?

Did immigrants move industry overseas, takingjobs from US workers and causing I phones to be made allover Asia? Did they force Harley Davidson to buildmotorcycles in Brazil, India, and Thailand? Did they forceDonald Trump to make his neckties in China?

Diddesperate asylum seekers pass laws to weaken workers laborunions while giving $billions to the military?

Didworking people across the nation starve and shrink thePublic Health Service for decades allowing Covid-19 to sweepacross the land?

Under the CARES Act, the USgovernment gave Trillions of dollars to bail out Wall Streetand financial institutions while only pennies went toworking people. The recent relief bill includes another200 Billion give away to the rich. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/22/us/politics/whats-in-the-covid-relief-bill.html

Thetop 1% now owns 50% of the Stock Market. Today, some 30% ofCorporate America is not earning enough to pay the intereston their debts and are called Zombie corporations. TheseZombie companies are now $2 Trillion in debt. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/america-zombie-companies-racked-1-110000761.html

TheFed is still pumping $120 billion every month into thefinancial markets buying up debt while 40 million workersare unemployed or underemployed and drowning in debt. Statesand cities across the country have already seen layoffs ofover 1 million workers.

70% of the US economy and theGDP are due to consumer spending which cannot be sustainedgiven the level of working-class debt and unemployment.Corporate Wall Street and working-class debt are heading fora massive crisis. American capitalisms response to theongoing crisis is to pump billions more into Wall Street andfinancial markets, making the 1% richer while impoverishingthe working class, and accelerating the crisis. As thecrisis continues, many politicians will continue to attacksocial services to make the working class pay for thecrisis. There can be no unity with treasonousneo-fascist capitalist politicians. Suchunity will only push the Government further intocontrol of the fascists as happened under Hitler inGermany.

While Covid-19 testing rates FALL andCovid-19 infections EXPLODE across the nation. the criminalhomicidal policy of forcing people back to work and schoolcontinues to guarantee massive infections, sickness, anddeath, soon to reach one half a million Americans. Death isfalling most heavily on the elderly, the working class, andpeople of color.

Part of the present tragedy is thatmillions of workers have been filled with fear and hatred,misled by poisonous racist, nationalist and religiousfanaticism. Their solidarity and labor unions have beenshrunken, their leaders have betrayed them, andworking-class history has been suppressed and forgotten. Toomany no longer know that they are members of a worldwideworking class; they no longer know what side of the fencethey are on. Yet all is not lost, political consciousness isever-changing.

From its beginning, America has beenbuilt on worker exploitation and racism. Only working peopleacting in their own interest can demand that racistterrorists are outlawed and the Coup plotters areinvestigated, tried, and punished. Only an independentmovement of the working class can defend us against thegrowing neo-Nazi racist movement and the Covid-19Pandemic

The urgent task for the multiracial workingclass is to rebuild solidarity and class consciousness. Toreclaim the power of the general strike and massmobilizations and demand social transformation from aprofit-driven society to one powered by the health and needsof the 99%. A movement for egalitarianism: no rich or poor,no hierarchy of race, tribe, religion or nation. Wecan build a society of economic, social, and politicalequality forall.

How The Zombie Apocalypse Prepares You For The COVID-19 Pandemic – American Council on Science and Health

Being a surgeon who has cared for a range of motor vehicle accidents, gunshot wounds, stabbing, and even a fellow severely bitten by a horse, my response to horror movies is a family joke. I was the only family member not able to watch as Nazis dissolved into skeletons in Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark it remains a fact that can and is used against me. So this paper from Personality and Individual Differences made me wonder, why can I deal with real blood and guts, and real-life and death, but on the big screen, it freaks me out?

There is an underlying physiology that begins with mirror-neurons. These are neurons that fire when we carry-out particular actions or thoughts and fire when we see those actions or experience those thoughts in stories, written or visual. Those neurons allow us to share experiences indirectly, to give us practice with our responses in safer settings it is a mechanism for physiologic rehearsal. The researchers wanted to know whether movie choice could act as that type of rehearsal for the real thing, in this case, the COVID-19 pandemic.

Horror fiction allows people to safely and frequently experience fear, which is typically experienced in the presence of real danger. By eliciting fear in a safe setting, horror fiction presents an opportunity for audiences to hone their emotion regulation skills.

The researchers questioned some 300 adult volunteers determining their film preferences, their experience with pandemic movies, and a resilience scale they developed to gauge participant concerns, anxieties, and confidence in our current situation. The study was done back in March, early in the pandemic, so apply as many grains of salt as you feel necessary. For the study, the researchers were interested in movie genres involving pandemics, viral, alien, or zombies what they described as prepper movies. They wanted to determine how much psychological stress was experienced, how prepared for societal changes we might be, and how resilient, turning that frown upside down, we were.

Stories, as it turns out, can prepare us for real life. That helps explain fandom for fictional work, be it Louisa May Alcotts Little Women, book or movie, same for J.K. Rawlings Harry Potter, and evidently even for the CDC and the Zombie Apocalypse. Horror stories help us reduce our psychological stress; once we vanquished Predator, COVID-19 may not be as stressful; but we still do not know the best way to control Predator or COVID-19 in our lives. On the other hand, those of us with a morbid curiosity can find the silver lining to the COVID-19 cloud. We might recoil with horror for a moment, but then curiosity kicks in, and we start baking bread, lots of bread.

[1] It is reminiscent of the line from Armageddon, a Bruce Willis movie about an asteroid about to destroy the earth, Its time to embrace the horror.

Magic: The Gathering – Kaldheim’s Necromancy Cards Are INTENSE – CBR – Comic Book Resources

In the upcoming Magic: The Gathering set, Kaldheim, black cards slot into Zombie and Elf tribal -- and these cards love seeing creatures die.

Magic: The Gathering is visiting the frosty world of Kaldheim in its nextset. This isa world of legendary heroes,saga-worthy gods and more, and it will feature ten two-color draft archetypes.The archetypes that include black mana will care a whole lot about the graveyard. Death is just the beginning.

Kaldheim, for all its exotic Norse mythology flavor, is staying true to the core values of each color of mana, and the newly-spoiled black cards make it clear that crafty players can revive the fallen dead or harvest them to gain forbidden power. It's time to harness the power of necromancy.

RELATED: Magic: The Gathering - Kaldheim Boasts Many Green Powerhouses

There is a strong black-green Elf tribe on the way, and a white-black Angel deck is showing up too (flavor-wise, they're valkyries). There is also going to be a blue-black Zombies archetype. For now, Draugr Necromancer may work in any of those decks, and this snow creature is a beefy 4/4 for just {3}B. If an opponent's nontoken creature would die, it is exiled with an ice counter on it instead, storing it in a chilly grave that Draugr Necromancer can easily access.

At leisure, the player can cast spells with ice counters on them and spend mana regardless of type or color to cast those spells. When this necromancer is around, a creature will get two leases on life: on the opponent's side, then on the Necromancer's side to serve a new master in undeath.

Eradicator Valkyrie takes an even more hands-on approach to death. It's a 4/3 flying beater with lifelink and hexproof from planeswalkers, all for just {2}BB. It also has the new Boast mechanic, and for {1}B, it can sacrifice another creature and force each opponent to sacrifice creatures or planeswalkers.A player using this Valkyrie will likely stock up their board with cheap, disposable creatures that are easy to sacrifice, then watch the opponent agonize over which of their own fancy creatures to sacrifice. Decks that sacrifice their own creatures are always prepared for it.

Already, the Kaldheim set has spoiled a number of black cards that should work well with Draugr Necromancer and/or Eradicator Valkyrie. Rise of the Marnhorde, for example, can be "suspended" with Foretell, then cast for just B during a turn where a lot of creatures die in combat. Once that happens, the caster gets some 2/2 black Zombie tokens,which Eradicator Valkyrie can sacrifice one by one to keep the opponent's board state empty.

Even if both players lose a lot of creatures, the caster of Rise of the Marnhorde will restock their board state much faster, and the Valkyrie will make sure the opponent can't catch up. Draugr Necromancer will also like having so many revival targets to choose from.

RELATED:Magic: The Gathering - Kaldheim's Pantheon Is More Legendary Than Ever

Draugr Necromancer may remind players of Tibalt, Cosmic Imposter, who also likes to exile enemy cards and cast them at will. So, Draugr Necromancer may act as a backup for Tibalt, since planeswalkers like that tend to draw a lot of fire and may get wiped out before long. In that case, Draugr Necromancer can take over the "cast the opponent's spells" game and keep the deck's strategy running.If Tibalt ults, adding RRR to the mana pool makes it even easier to cast enemy spells with Tibalt and/or Draugr Necromancer.

Finally, Koma's Faithful is useful in any Elf deck and/or in a deck with Eradicator Valkyrie, since it has a triggered ability when it dies. Upon death, this Elf Cleric will mill each player three cards, stocking up the graveyard in a hurry. This means Eradicator Valkyrie can sacrifice Koma's Faithful to fuel its own ability and mill, generating all kinds of value in one stroke.

The Walking Dead’s Final Season 11, Fear Season 7, More 2021 Premiere Dates Announced – ComicBook.com

The Walking Dead universe was not able to have its massive 2020 programming slate roll out as planned due to unexpected delays amidst the global pandemic. Now, it looks like 2021 is going to offer up the massive slate of Sunday night programming with three series set in the Walking Dead universe and the Talking Dead recap show all set to return. The Walking Dead will air its bonus episodes from Season 10, Fear the Walking Dead will round out its sixth season and begin a seventh, and The Walking Dead: World Beyond will run through its second and final season -- and that's not all.

Newly announced dates and windows for all of the shows set in the Walking Dead universe for 2021 have been revealed as follows:

AMC released a promo video, walker and all, to celebrate the big 2021 coming for TWDU (as they are officially referring to The Walking Dead Universe). See it in the tweet below!

With The Walking Dead and World Beyond nearing their series finales, the end of an era is upon TWDU. While many think it wi culminate in a grand finale taking the shape of the Rick Grimes movie, The Walking Dead chief content officer Scott Gimple teases that the transition out of this phase of The Walking Dead will have its similarities and differences by comparison to other franchises which have hit such pivotal points, like Marvel movies, for example.

"Marvel is... I say this as a fan. I haven't been in on the meetings but it's like their whole next chapter, it's a whole new thing. It's gonna be all these new faces," Gimple explained in an interview with ComicBook.com. "With Walking Dead, it's a mix. We have the Carol/Daryl show, which in some ways is the centerpiece of what's moving forward. Tales on the other hand is completely different. There isn't even a regular cast to that show. I think there's gonna be a mix of old favorites in various ways, whether they be specials, whether they be mini-series, whether they be on Tales, and then things like Carol and Daryl, and rolled out in a way that we're not over-saturating people with it, but letting people have a steady flow of The Walking Dead in their lives. That's our goal. We want that to be both very different and then some of those familiar faces. There's reinvention of the existing. And then there's the new stuff."
