I still have to wait six more weeks until the Walking Dead returns, but in the meantime, the Zombie apocalypse apparently has an interesting subculture: Nazi Zombies. I don’t know much about this, except that once again, someone has figured out how to appropriate Nazi lore into modern entertainment culture to make a profit. The miscegenation of Nazi’s and Zombies is particularly clever. The two names even sound good together.


Yes, when regular zombies are not bad enough, it is time for the Nazi zombies to appear. But it may not be that bad for everyone…


It never ceases to amaze me the continued, popular fascination with Nazi Germany and all things Nazi that exists nearly 70 years after the end of the Second World War and the Third Reich. I attribute it in small part to the fact that the Nazis had the best uniforms of anyone at the time.  Whatever your opinion of the Third Reich, and most people justifiably have a bad opinion of it, including myself, military sartorial tastes have never surpassed the Nazi look (which was really nothing more than a traditional German uniform, ultimately descended from the Prussian military, with a swastika thrown on here and there). Throw some zombies into those uniforms and you have quite a humorous, yet still ominous, combination.
