ALL - Conventions of the Zombie Sub-Genre

These are some of the key conventions in the zombie genre:

  • Post-apocalyptic setting.
  • Word zombie never used, however it is used satirically in the film "Shaun of the Dead" where Shaun tells Ed not to use the "z-word".
  • Normally revolves around a group of different characters e.g a white racist paired with a strong black character.
  •  Low Budget
  • Urban setting is used
  • Big, isolated building
