This will be me one day, when the zombies rise up. It’s only a matter of time. I hope I keep more of my hair though.
In most movies these days LAZY film makers seem to be stuck on one type of zombie. The viral zombie. Zombie bites human, human becomes zombie, zombie bites human…. repeat. That’s getting pretty damned old. Also I submit to you that if zombies are spread through bites alone humanity has nothing to worry about with a zombie uprising. We are simply too good at killing things as a species. (I’ll have you know I’m armed to the teeth and have no moral compass… so I’m good to go for the apocalypse.)
Now if you go with the zombie model from George Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead” they’ve got a shot. Not only is zombiism spread through bites, but anyone who dies, no matter the cause becomes a zombie.
Think about how badly that would suck. You are never safe no matter where you are because some idiot in your survivor group could be talking with his mouth full, choke to death when no one is looking and BOOM!, everyone dies.
Then there’s the Elderly, sorry but dieing in your sleep is no longer the preferred way to go. That’s a time bomb waiting to go off so keep an eye out on grandma if you know what’s good for you. Relationships with your spouse will also suffer as sleeping together at night will be a bit to risky. Separate bedrooms will become the norm in a future zombie apocalypse.
Sorry hon, but my room is where I’ll be keeping the shotguns.
