We discuss the dramatic significance of zombie comedies using Zombieland as an example. Dr. Kyle William Bishop in his article “Vacationing in Zombieland : the classical functions of the modern zombie comedy” applies Northrop Frye’s frameworks for criticism to demonstrate how the zombie comedy is more than just gratuitous violence and should be taken seriously by academic and critics alike. We use specific examples from Bishop, Frye, and the film itself to show why Zombieland, for example, is a traditional dramatic romantic comedy.
