Vampires know life is in the blood. Zombies know life is in the flesh. Our serial choice of pop culture iconic monsters is most likely not just about art/entertainment, but also symbolizes the hunger/thirst/deadness of our collective inner spirituality.
Jesus knew our souls hunger and thirst for life. His word to the vampires/zombies among us:
“So Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and i in him.” [John 6:53-56]
