    What is the meaning of "Mindless Shells"

    Can you please explain what is the meaning of "Mindless Shells" in the following sentence, that tells about American Horror Drama, spesifically about a zombie apocalypse.

    "Morgan reveals that once bitten people degenerate into mindless shells, driven solely by instinct to spread the unknown pathogen by biting and eating any available living animal, especially other humans."

    They have a body still, a shell -- but there is no "mindfulness."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Yes, I have seen that kind of movie.Even though it is a fiction movie but it can make me extremely scared.

    I have played a zombie video game as well, entitled "The Resident Evil".I am so excited to be the police in that game.

    Re: What is the meaning of "Mindless Shells"

    Darryus, you correctly left a space after each comma. Please do the same after your full stops (periods), too.

    You can do this by using Edit Post, after which I can delete this.
