Of course, the slow zombie makes more sense, they are dead after all and dead is definitely not a superpower, but the fast one just makes me want to poop my pants. I have to admit, 28 Days Later is my all-time favorite zombie movie (sorry zombie purists, I know they are technically infected with the rage virus, but I still consider it a zombie flick). Couldn't get it out of my head for months. Like sleep with my door bolted, a light on and the dog on my bed scared.
Speaking of animals, everyone knows zombies don't touch them. I mean, they still have some shred of morality behind all that gray decaying skin, don't they? Which is why I was so appalled to see all those zombies overtake that poor horse on AMC's The Walking Dead last week. I was also disturbed to see that it was filled with so many sausage links. I will be writing a letter.
Without further ado, I will give you my zombie recommendations for the zombie lover in you:
- World War Z
- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
- Shaun of the Dead
- Dawn of the Dead (original)
- 28 Days Later
- Have you seen the original I Am Legend called The Omega Man? It features pale, poetic zombies who just so happen to wear sunglasses at night. Yeah, rent it. Now.
