Once bitten by a zombie your fate is never in doubt. Your only hope, and it’s a slim one at that is to chop off the limb that the zombie bit. Easier said than done I think.
“Day of the Dead” (1985) poor old Miguel gets a chunk taken out of his arm because he’s kind of an idiot and in a desperate attempt to save him he gets the limb chopped off. If you’ve seen the movie you’ll know it would have been better for everyone if they just would have capped him. I admit that’s back seat zombie quarterbacking on my part though.
There’s also a ludicrous amount of amputation in the movie “Dead Snow” (2009) after a zombie bite as well. I won’t ruin it for you, but I’d rather just become a zombie at that point.
Oh yeah, …..spoiler warnings, or something. Better late then never.
A zombie bite is a death sentence in just about every zombie movie I’ve ever seen.
