Welcome to the General Discussion area where just about anything goes! This area is designed to discuss all matters and does not necessarily have to be Transformers related. Please keep topics relevant.
While I was driving to my calls today I passed a cemetery that reminded me of the one in Return of the Living dead.. Then I started thinking, "what would be the style of zombie I would rather go up against?" And what is the more terrifying of the three zombie styles.
As for style I mean the three mainstream zombie franchises (well the 04 dawn was a stand alone movie... BUT it was a good one at that).
Tale of the tape... _________________________________________________________________ Night/Dawn/Day/Land/Diary/Survival of the living dead Romero zombies
Method to become zombified Anyone that dies comes back (possibly due to radiation from an exploded space probe) Transmitted by bite, scratch or fluid transmission
Zombie specifications They eat all of you They shamble around slowly (like creeping death) Have little to no communication skills Can be killed by shot in the head/massive head trama
_________________________________________________________________ Return of the Living dead (ROTLD) and its sequels Dan O'Bannon’s zombies
Method to become zombified It is believed that the only way to become a zombie in this continuity is by being exposed to the trioxin compound, be it ingestion (nose, mouth or skin) or reanimated due to water/rain/trioxin chemical itself.
Zombie specifications They only eat brains They can run They are somewhat intelligent and can talk Can be killed by electricity (shorts out the brain)
________________________________________________________________ Dawn of the Dead 2004
Method to become zombified Never specified how the outbreak begins. Only way to become a zombie is bite, scratch, fluid transmission
Zombie specifications They eat all of you They can run (freshly dead seem to be the quickest) Have little to no communication skills Can be killed by shot in the head/massive head trauma _________________________________________________________________
I think the one I would want to face would be the Romero zombies.. Yeah, he made them slow like the creeping death and they will tear you apart if they got their hands on you, but they are easily taken down by a headshot and can be maneuvered through due to their slow movement.
The most terrifying ones would be the ROTLD ones.. Sure they only eat brains, but the only way to kill them is electricity (seen in the second movie)..
I think the Romero style zombies are the scariest despite being the easiest to deal with. The other ones are too natural in their behavior, they run and think like wild animals. The Romero zombies are walking corpses that mindlessly stalk you which is something your instincts are not prepared for.

I honestly wouldn't care what sort of zombies I'd have to face. My zombie plan is to take my sword and the M1 Carbine in my garage (plus plenty of ammo and maybe a handgun or two), hop in my jeep, and head right down the street to the abandoned watch-tower in the old civil war battlefield. I'd easily be able to say up there and wipe out any zombies that were headed to the tower, and since I don't eat much, I wouldn't have to really worry about food (there's plenty of deer and turkey around, and since I actually know how to use a sword, I'd say I'd be safe enough for close combat).

My Escape plan is similar to Grif's, however I take the Magical Mystery bus as much guns food and warm clothing as i can and instead of Alaska i go to the Canadian Shield (It's Colder). And My team: Me, Myself, and I. My Battle Plan is secure the Building I live in (it's an Apartment)as well as food. Get to the top Floor, Destroy the stair cases and wait it out and attack when need be. I'm close to (the state Of) Washington so getting up to Canada Shouldn't be to hard.
