    Default Old-skool zombies are past it

    When you watched 'em in films years ago you knew just where you were with 'em.
    They shambled along looking vacant and only caught you if you were trapped by sheer weight of numbers, a decent runner with a shotgun or length of iron pipe could easily escape and survive.

    Nowadays they're like super fast, near invulnerable man killers and you just can't imagine how to get away!

    Also I Am Legend, though technically they were not zombies.

    Past it?

    C'mon! Zombie Flesh Eaters? The one that takes a bite out of a shark? Nasty.

    And whilst I'm not completely versed in zombie (not seen the dead remakes nor the 28s - the trailer for Later made me think of my fave zombie movie with the deserted hospital), I do prefer the weight that the slow mos have.

    Ah The Beyond. The climax in the hospital, with David Warbeck letting rip with a revolver, with the ammo running out, the little girl grabbing Catriona MacColl, and Warbeck turns - WHOAH!
