  • But where's Michael Jackson's zombies from Thriller?

  • I feel like the most dangerous ones are the swarm zombies the fast zombies or the zombies from 28 days or weeks later

  • WWZ zombies are definitely more dangerous than the infected from 28 days later and 28 weeks later.

  • Just got done watching a zombie experiment in NYC.. Full movie makeup about 30 different zombies,, they were dressed as every day workers and people, street vendors, construction workers, police, postmen, business women and men... There were a few people that ran away, but most of them would have been dead if it were real.. All I know is if I see some crazy shit like that, I'd get the he'll out of there till I knew what was going on....

  • Ok, I agree somewhat with the list.. I know you have to show the old zombies as a basis for the new, but Zombieland, Resident Evil, and maybe even Shaun of the Dead could replace a few of the old ones.. Netflix's Black Summer is even better than several of those on the list.. EDIT,,, My opinion,, I am a fan of faster and/or sneakier zombies.. Definatly not semi intelligent ones

  • To survive in The Walking Dead, is simple, WEAR A FUCKING MEDIEVAL ARMOR, THAT IS MADE OF IRON, TEETH CAN BITE IT. If u watch TDW, u can see, no one use a protection on the arms, and there, is the favorite place to a zombie bite u, so, u have the trip now..ah, use a sword too, is infinite, you don't need search for bullets :3.

  • I'd survive with TWD zombies, or "walkers" (slow zombies), that's for sure and I think most us will. But if we have World War Z zombies we can kiss this planet goodbye.

  • I feel like Brain Eaters could still be considered "Intelligent" type. They are capable of conversing, and rigging things to get in where they want. I feel like Brain Eaters could be considered a subtype instead. And Natzi Zombies, a curse type. Boy Eats Girl is another zombie movie where they are brought on by a Voodoo curse. And Walkers are like the George A. Romero kind. Romantic zombies are still an intelligent type, and I think Virus type could have been a good type. Also, mutated zombies I think is a good type.

  • Actually 28 days later 'zombies' are the easiest to survive because they're still living humans who will starve to death in 3 weeks, just lock yourself away with some baked beans and you're set.
