Not a fan of sprinting zombies. The trailer makes them look to be no more than cannon fodder for high-powered machine guns.

I'm much more fond of the subtlety that usually comes with the slow-moving zombies.


Wouldn't slow moving zombies be easier cannon fodder for high powered machine guns?


Precisely why I don't care for the shufflers. What they gonna do? Walk after me very slowly?

Sorry, my comment was directed toward the trailer, where all they seem to be good for is getting mowed down by the thousands. The same could happen to slow-moving zombies, but it rarely does due to the difference style such films tend to take.

In my experience, movies with slow zombies have much greater emphasis on subtlety rather than in-your-face action, which is what I prefer. When you get down to it, shufflers aren't directly more dangerous. Their danger comes from their numbers (which sprinters may also have), and the false sense of security you're displaying right now.

Shufflers are scary because you don't expect them to be dangerous until they are, and most films around that idea are much better at conveying that scenario. But as I said, that's just my preference.

28 Days Later brought me over to sprinters, and the pile of crap that was Land of the Dead sealed that preference for me.

What are you going to do when you don't have the luxury of the back up of dozens of military helicopters with high powered machine guns to mow them down and you're isolated on foot with limited weapons? Much easier to run away from a slow moving enemy than a fast moving one.
The other movies make the experience seem more dire because they often have them trapped in situational circumstances and also making the victims really dumb in terms of survival instincts and logical thinking...

True, but as I said, I prefer the approach slow-zombie films seem to take. It's easy to just throw zombies in your face (as most "fast-zombie" movies seem to do), but I'm more fond of the style and subtlety you see in slow-zombie films. The latter style tends to be much more frightening, in my opinion.

There's something infinitely more frightening about the thought of something out there somewhere in the world, possibly coming your way and never knowing it, than picking off sprinting zombies left and right followed by a crazy car chase. One is just usually more geared toward action than the other, and that's what I dislike.

Yeah, slow moving hoards of zombies are more in the horror genre, with heavy emphasis on post-apocalyptic survival, which would be hard enough by itself. But then you have the hoards upon hoards of creatures that want to eat you, that never tire, and can only be killed by severe head injury.

Sprinting zombies is more in the action genre, with the whole post-apocalyptic element of it being more of a secondary backdrop than an actual plot issue. it's all about killing zombies, as many and as quickly as you can, rather than actual running and surviving.

So it's a completely different animal.
