Upon reviewing zombie apocalypses, I’ve noted: the ones in which the zombies can’t be killed even by headshots are not only much rarer, they’re generally comedic. (“Deadalive”, “Return of the Living Dead”, etc… though “Return” I think also works as a semi-serious horror movie.) Presumably the imagery of writhing, still-moving guts and severed heads goes beyond horror and just to the point of absurdity. But why should headshots be the wooden-stake-and-garlic of zombie lore? Must everyone rip off that particular aspect of Saint Romero’s legacy? I want new directions in zombiedom!
NEXT UPDATE: Friday!
