Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries or The Walking Dead. Everybody loves paranormal phenomena!

Zombies, vampires, every kind of monsters, visions, prophecies… Our time is a time of supernatural phenomena and TV shows are full of demons, ghosts, and other supernatural beings. But I’m wondering why. Why are vampires or zombies so popular? Why do we love skeletons and tombs? Even adventure TV shows like Game of Thrones or Vikings are full of nods to the hidden forces.

Do we live in such an alienated society that our only hope is to forget it in our free time? Many would answer yes. Me too.

The Vampire Diaries Season 6

We work too many hours to pay too many taxes and survive until the next day (to work again), like zombies. Thus, we are waiting for some supernatural event which liberates us, since we feel unable to escape our strenuous life. We need to fly as a vampire, to have the strength of a monster and the visions of a witch… We need to live listening to different prophets (Vikings Season 3) or to different men (Beauty & the Beast). And we need to live a hundred lifetimes (Forever) to find an explanation for our empty existence. Yes, we are like zombies, and we would like to be supernatural beings.

I love this sentence by Max Brooks: “That’s the thing about zombies. They don’t adapt and they don’t think. Literally, you could have a zombie on one side of a chain link fence and you could be on the other side and they could be trying to get to you and six feet down could be an open door and they will not go through that door in the fence. That’s why they’re so scary.” But I think we are scarier about our own existence that about horror films and TV shows.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
