The contribution treats the TV-series The Walking Dead (2010-) and its post-apocalyptic world as an allegorical representation of our own actual world. The article is divided into four parts: in the first, entitled Survival Horror, the genre conventions that the series plays with in relation to its cinematic and other forerunners are given; in the second, Eye without a Gaze, such a paradox of zombie subjectivity is developed that the zombies become merely a conceptual permutation of humans themselves; in the third, Here of the Other side, a connection between the postapocalyptic world overrun by zombies and post-colonial necropolitics is established; the fourth and final part, Vampire-Capital and Zombie-Work, offers a critique of post-industrial zombification of our own world.
