Zombie movies often use their monsters as heavy-handed metaphors for things like runaway consumerism, terrorism, pandemics, civilizational collapse, or climate change. They take place in a world just like ours, but in place of our deepest fears, they substitute a horde of cannibal undead. These movies are escapist, in this sense: The zombie is a euphemism for the thing we're too afraid to say, the word we don't want to hear. Instead of a pandemic that kills millions something to legitimately fear , the "zekes" in World War Z , for example, are the result of a pathogen, but they are also a kind of pandemic that we know we don't really need to be afraid of.
These monsters resemble our anxieties and remind us of them, but they are also something reassuringly different, something scientifically impossible.
I Don't Die (feat. Chris Brown)
And so, along with catharsis, they provide consolation. As we watch what we fear, we also know that what we are watching won't ever happen. In our world, zombie pathogens from a melting Arctic are something to fear; literal zombies, on the other hand, are just something to watch.

In The Dead Don't Die , zombies aren't a metaphor for ecological disaster; they are its result, so directly a consequence of climate change that the metaphor collapses in on itself. Government officials and energy companies insist that polar fracking is beneficial and that nothing bad is happening, but while they are obviously lying, and everyone in the movie knows they are lying, the citizenry also seems too depressed to do anything about it.
They are, you might say, "zombies. It's sad and it's maddening.
There is a sadness in the human behavior for me, and zombies are the most obvious metaphor you could employ. In a sense, Jarmusch's zombies in The Dead Don't Die are metaphors, representing people who go about their lives as if nothing apocalyptic is happening. We, too, are zombies—you and I—if we live our daily routines as though we aren't standing on the brink of the end of the world.
There may not be zombies in our world, but it's hard to deny that most or even all of us live this way: As the world plummets toward an ecological catastrophe—and we have the script , if we want to read it —we still shamble through our former existences, brainless, as though the end of the world hasn't already been written.
