"People running through the streets in terror, stores being looted for supplies, and, of course, people eating other people. In World War Z, the film adaptation of Max Brooks’ successful zombie apocalyptic horror novel, things start off calm but quickly escalate to all-out mayhem. The zombies in World War Z are fast, almost superhuman in their athleticism. The speed of the zombies and the quickness with which a person who is bitten turns into a zombie leads the world to be quickly overrun by the flesh-eating creatures.
The high-octane horror film is anything but short on entertainment value, and this is undoubtedly why it rose to the number-one spot in the list of highest-grossing zombie films of all time. Part of the entertainment value comes from the film documenting how a world, much like our own, can quickly melt into chaos. However, could horror films like World War Z offer audiences something more than mere entertainment?
Those who had seen a lot of pandemic films reported feeling more prepared when the real thing happened."
