because they want to be is an idiotic answer. Due to Africa mythology there called zombi. Voodoo queens and witch doctors stole souls of living and the dead to work for them and cause fear in people or to kill. Blood spilled is red like the color of chaos and hunt the ones who blood is pure which is blue, the red allows there blood to flow more and the brain part... I have no clue how that started. Point being Zombies are eternal workers as long as they have blood circulation. Hope this answers your question!
