Ben and I were walking on an overpass today and I couldn't help but feel that it was a real life scene from 28 Days Later (minus the infected and the hardcore survivalism). Now, this made me think, as I'm sweating buckets (literally, my pores are huge because I had to fit actual buckets through them), that zombies don't drink. I know that there are no zombies in 28 Days Later, but if there ended up beingan actual zombie apocalypse, all you'd have to do is wait a week or a bit longer until all the zombies dried up. If you lived in the UK or Seattle, I would suggest leaving before things got out of hand. So, I guess I would just hang out in Vegas if there was a zombie apocalypse. Lock myself in a hotel room with food and water, and watch as the zombies slowly shrivel.
This has been a constant source of frustration for me. Why is it that people are unable to tell the difference between a zombie movie and an outbreak movie?
Zombie Movie - This is a movie that features the undead. Zombies typically eat brains and move slowly. There are always exceptions, granted.
Outbreak Movie - This movie focuses on the outbreak of some sort of disease. The disease is usually very contagious and causes the infected to revert to a more primitive state where the focus is on survival.
Here are some examples for clarification's sake:
28 Days Later - Outbreak movie
28 Weeks Later - Outbreak movie
I Am Legend - Outbreak movie
Zombieland - Outbreak movie
Shaun of the Dead - Zombie movie
Dawn of the Dead - Outbreak movie
Planet Terror - Outbreak movie
Fido - Zombie movie
Night of the Living Dead - Zombie movie
I hope this cleared things up for you. There are far more "outbreak movies" than there are zombie movies. Please stop mixing them up, it vexes me terribly.
