Zombies are fictional beings. They are beings created by reanimating a human corpse. Their origin comes from the Haitian folklore. In Haiti, a zombie is considered a dead body which is reanimated into life with the help of different methods, usually with magic.
In modern depictions of zombies, the reanimation of a human corpse is done by radiation, pathogens, scientific accidents, and other ways. Zombies are found mostly in horror fiction and fantasy books and movies. They have evolved and changed in comparison to the version which is described in the folklore of Haiti. Maybe one of the most famous zombies is Mary Shelly’s “Frankenstein”.
Because of their presence in the media, most people have heard about them. Although they are fictitious characters, they instill fear and shivers in many people. They are not commonly present in dreams, and when they do appear, that happens mostly after reading a book about them or watching a movie, a TV commercial, or something similar featuring zombies. In these cases, the dreams are a mere reflection of reality and everyday occurrences.
In some cases, people dream about zombies without being somehow inspired or reminded about them. In these cases, dreams about zombies can bring an important message to the dreamer.
