Why Can't People Run Away From Zombies?!?!?!?!?!?

Why is it in every zombie movie the slow movin bitch ass zombies always catch the usually armed survivors? If you were being chased by zombies dragging there feet at a 1/4 MPH I think you could get away. I know some one is going to say some thing about the amount of zombies giving chase. Why couldn't they climb a ledge or mountian? I am sure a run of the mill "Dawn of the Dead" zombie cant climb an incline

Now darkseekers are diffrent, they are compleatly bad ass and I dont know how Robert Neville ran from them from 3 years

"There's a party in Zepp's mouth and everyones coming"



Origanally posted by Variant - Pulled from the river Styx, the mighty black oar of doom in hand! I certainly would not call this particular guitar an "axe" more like a club. Noodles' KxK would run through an emo, spilling his insides for a quick death, this blunt mace would bludgeon the unfortunate effeminate soul, breaking bones, and causing internal bleeding to lead only to a slow, painful death

Because, if they COULD run away, they wouldn't be very scary movies. Well, I don't think they're usually scary either, but they wouldn't be as interesting if no one was ever getting killed by them.

In Dead Rising for Xbox 360, it makes perfect sense why zombies are hard to avoid. Because they're frickin' EVERYWHERE and in closed areas, you have to get past them, but they're trying to kill you, yo. If you've got a gun, you've only got maybe 20 shots and there are hundreds of zombies. I tried my baseball bat, but that only works for so long. They may be incredibly slow, but when they're taking over the entire world, it's hard to get somewhere where they ain't.

Maybe they should start a special school for zombies...you know with classes like "how to catch stupid actors and eat them" and "outsmarting big-breasted blond actresses". Also add a special training program to make them run faster. That should solve the problem...

They tried to educate zombies in the past, it didn't go so well.

True dat.

I'm somewhat of a zombie expert myself. Not because I wanted to be one, but because I've seen a hell of a lot of zombie movies and the general thing about at least the old zombie movies is that there are ....ing zombies everywhere and running is pretty pointless because there are more zombies in the direction you're running.

In fact, most of those movies end with some kind of apocalyptic ending where everyone's a zombie or only one person is left and the zombies have multiplied to a crazy number and, even though the remaining person doesn't die in the movie, you know he or she is going to.

i think the fact that they're slow makes them somewhat scary really, okay granted they cant leg it at you like in the dawn of the dead remake or 28 days/weeks later, but man being overwhelmed and slowly torn to ....ing pieces, pretty scary stuff...

My father and I actually dicussed this heavily (lulz). We agreed that because zombies are really just your friends and family zombified, you are less likely to run or shoot your friend in the face.

People in movies are just generally really stupid, with the possible exception of the main character.

People in generally are really stupid. Look at any real life catastrophe and you will see people risking their life to save their dog, to save their photo album and so on. And of course all of the people who just freak out and stand still awaiting death.

People always complain about the stupidity in horrormovies, but I've down a bunch of clichees in my life, one good example, while I was living in a house I heard a bump in the attic, So I took a lighter and went up there, all alone, in the middle of the night, Now if this had been a horrormovie I'd been zombiefood, But since zombies only exist on movies I have nothing to be afraid of, I can careless walk in the woods at night, have adventures on the attic and even go swimming naked in the lake.
When your doing a horrormovie you assume that the characters in the movie don't know that they are in a horrormovie, that's what's so fun about them.

^ Good point. I'm the kind of guy who might risk his life for a beloved pet, though :P

Even given that they don't know they're in a horror movie and that most people are stupid, they do still tend to act pretty stupid depending on what movie you're watching, especially in fairly recent American movies. Modern American horror movies are just awful! So much so that I often go to my bassist's house to watch horror movies and laugh at them just for the fact that they're rarely good for anything else. I guess other countries still make some better ones that might have as many idiots in it, though.

Exactly, it's not how fast they move that is scary or what they do. It's the inevitability that in the end they are going to get you.

I have to say though "Land of the Dead" was ....ing stupid, zombies should not be allowed to think. It defeats the whole purpose of them; they're brain dead killing machines that don't act on anything other than the basic human instinct to feed.

Speaking of "Brain Dead" though (or "Dead Alive" as it was called in some countries) that is a ....ing wicked movie

More words here is more words.

And, on the continuation of what I was saying... you could never have a movie where 1 zombie kills off a group of 10 people. It's more likely to be 500 zombies kill off 50 people or 10,000 zombies kill off 1,000 people. Or, maybe not directly seen in the movie, but a major part of the movie's storyline: 4 billion zombies almost eradicate mankind. I'm watching a zombie flick like that right now.

While vampire movies show how smart and powerful a single vampire is, zombie movies are based all around just how many zombies there are and how there keep getting more and more of them as they turn the living into zombies as well. You just can't escape.

If you could, it wouldn't be scary. Zombie movies feed off of desperation.
