I LOVE horror films. The scarier and the creepier the better. But my favourite type of horror films absolutely HAS to be zombies! I love the trill of the chase, the hiding, the running, the killing…..every little girls dream!
I can secretly fantasise I’m in the film, ducking and diving from zombie bites, finding somewhere to sleep, finding food, stealing cars to drive… it’s like a crazy ride at a theme park just waiting to happen.
There are several types of zombies, some I find scarier than others to watch and some I would happily jump into the screen and take on!!!
You have your crazy fast zombies that come out at night, like in the Will Smith zombie film ‘I Am Legend’. I think these are the scariest of all zombies as they aren’t remotely human anymore. They’re like animals, climbing up buildings with super human strength and speed, ripping walls apart to find a scrap of food. You wouldn’t have a hope against these zombies so I’m happy to stay on this side of the screen!
You have your slower zombies, like in the tv show The Walking Dead. If you can run you have a really good chance of getting away, but what makes these zombies scary is when they are in herds. Thousands will come together, like a slow moving flesh eating army. If you come across one of these groups you have no hope, they would engulf you quicker than you can say ‘oh shit.’ The only way to kill this breed of zombie is a good old traditional stab through the brain. These are the zombies I would enjoying playing with.
There has been a new wave of zombie, in a film called ‘The girl with all the gifts’ they are zombie children that were born from zombie mothers. They apear human and right of mind, they can talk, learn and function normally. Until they smell human flesh and they turn into out of control zombies. It’s a different twist on your usual zombie. It has a modern feel and I really enjoyed the thought and idea behind it.
What’s your favourite type of zombie? What’s your favourite zombie film! I would LOVE to hear in the comments below!!!
