Abstract
Throughout the evolution of the zombie to the evolution of its cinematic representation, and finally up to the widely popular TV show The Walking Dead, this paper will analyze the zombie genre with the main emphasis put on The Walking Dead. Over time, the meaning of zombies has changed, and each movie or television series reveals different fears and anxieties of the society. Therefore, zombies are no longer at the center of the story; humans become far more dangerous than zombies. The paper will question morals and ethics of the series based on different types of sacrifices. Furthermore, through examples seen in the show, utopian representations of society will be introduced, whereupon types of leadership will be presented. Final chapter deals with character development of one of the protagonist.

Parallel abstract (Croatian)
Kroz evoluciju zombija te evoluciju njegovih filmskih inačica pa sve do široko popularne serije The Walking Dead, ovaj rad će analizirati zombi žanr, sa glavnim naglaskom na The Walking Dead. Tokom vremena, značenje zombija se promijenilo i svaki film ili serija otkrivaju različite strahove i anksioznosti društva. Stoga zombiji više nisu u centru zbivanja; ljudi postaju opasniji od zombija. Rad će ispitati moral i etiku na temelju različitih tipova žrtve koji se mogu vidjeti u seriji. Osim toga, kroz primjere će biti prikazani utopijski pokušaji stvaranja društva nakon čega će različiti tipovi vođa biti predstavljeni. Posljednje poglavlje bavi se razvojem karaktera jednog protagonista.
