    When you guys are making your plans for the whole zombie apocalypse are we going for old school slow moving zombies or 28 days later fast moving rabid zombies or both? I always play out the fast moving ones because if they turn out to be the slow ones, it'll be cake.

    There's a little bit of a disconnect between the types of zombies. On the one hand, there's fast zombies like the 28 Days later type, though it should be noted that 28 Days zombies are actually alive, just infected with the Rage Virus. The typical "Dead" zombies are generally portrayed as slow, shambling and having very poor coordination/balance.

    I think the Zombie types that one should plan for would be a a combination of Fast Dead, as unlikely as they are to exist. This Zombie type would probably be the most dangerous. Not only can it move quickly, and most likely with infinite stamina, but due to it's dead status, shots that fail to destroy it's brain would be minimally effective. Additionally, imagine how difficult it would be to hit the head of a zombie running towards you , even jogging towards you.

    [edit] tl;dr? What Volu said, but wordier

    One thing I don't get is that most of the people that are buried in cemeteries are embalmed. Therefore their bodies are stiff because of the formaldehyde. How would they move?

    I spend at least 2 hours a day at my second job which is at a funeral home, if we have bodies in house, I may be fucked.

    Well again, does anything dead come back? Or do you have to be bitten, die, and then resurrected? Is it just a virus that instantly infects and turns large amounts of the populace?

    I mean, really, anything could go down.

    I'm sure formaldehyde mixes with whatever science or voodoo and creates the living dead and gives them the ability to reanimate.

    If we want to get technical, the creatures that are commonly referred to as "zombies" aren't really zombies at all. They're ghouls. Dead-yet-animated corpses that mindlessly consume flesh.

    Zombies are people who have "died" and risen to become the slave of the voodoo priest who transformed them. Often this is achieved through the use of chemicals which cause a person to appear dead when they are actually still alive, albeit at the cost of a great deal of brain-cells.

    I liked the Left4Dead zombies. Generally they shambled aimlessly, but if they saw you they'd run towards you. Of course, being undead they had terrible coordination and would often run past you, but they got you with sheer numbers. After all, a single zombie in that game is never a threat, it's once they end up in groups thereof.

    Oh, God, there needs to be a Muppet Zombies movie.



    I can see the scene with Gonzo pretending to be a zombie going "This is GREAT!", scaring other Muppets during the first half of the film only to be devoured hideously by zombies halfway through and then devouring Miss Piggy at the film's climax after being dismissed as a prankster, allowing him to infiltrate the bunker.
