Cracking open the Sketchbook: Fiery zombies of doom!on January 4, 2011 at 4:00 am
I had a discussion about what’s more dangerous than a zombie and a friend of mine thought it would be a flaming zombie.
But I think it wouldn’t be long before any zombie on fire would be first, blinded, then immobile, then gone. Also he’s one of those who thinks that zombie should ONLY follow the Romero style of zombie. (I prefer variety in my Zombies, myself)
But if he’d seen “Night of the Living Dead” he would know that zombies are afraid of fire and in one scene are held at bay by a torch. (Brace yourselves purists, but zombies showed fear)
Now a zombie wielding a flamethrower…. that’s what I call a significant threat…. I love it when the tables get turned.
