It’s an age-old debate. Well, it’s as old as zombie movies are, so it’s not really that old, in the big scheme of the world, but it’s nonetheless something that interests me. I don’t actually have a preference, surprisingly; for me it’s the treatment of the story, not the mythos of the zombies, that makes a zombie film extremely brilliant or less than. So in that spirit, I present you a pro/con list.
- Possessing the potential for great origin stories (who made the chemical zombies?)
- Sometimes too smart for zombies
- Not always properly zombie-like
- Easy to outwit
- Less certain doom
- Sometimes ickier
- Almost too stupid
Who do you think wins?
