Do you have Kinemortophobia?
Kinemortophobia is the fear of the undead – in other words the fear of zombies!! At least it is unofficially. It’s not an “official” phobia, but most people that do have a fear of zombies acknowledge it as Kinemortophobia.
Many people that have Kinemortophobia develop such a deep fear of zombies that they cannot watch zombie movies or music videos. For those of us who do not have this fear it may be hard to understand. How can someone be afraid of zombies!? It’s not like there are zombies walking down the street or that a zombie apocalypse is at our door….or is it??
Are zombies real? There are actually some zombies that are very real – for example, in Haiti, there are claims of locals being turned into zombies by potions and concoctions – they are even buried…only to emerge in a “zombie-like” state. Once people start to hear of these types of “real” zombies, their fears can start to develop into full blown Kinemortophobia.
Other reasons people would be afraid of zombies are because they are simply depicted quite scarily – as creatures that bite, eat human flesh, and chase humans. Others simply do not like the idea of humans coming back to life.
