Zombie from The Walking Dead

Kinemortophobia (from the Greek kine, meaning "motion", and morto, meaning "dead") is the fear of zombies. The fear is most commonly caused by watching films where zombies are portrayed, such as Zombie Apocalypse. It is a common phobia.

Scientists and preppers determine that zombies are likely real, so kinemortophobia is a real fear, not just about fictional entity. Individuals who play video games would avoid playing Plants vs. Zombies, "Resident Evil", or other games where zombies are featured, causing the fear of zombies to escalate even more.
