—–> World War Z Spoilers Most Likely Just FYI <—–
You know, for The Zombie Apocalypse expert and fan that I am, it is to be noted how I kept forgetting to put World War Z in my Netflix DVD queue. Well I finally got around to doing it and I watched it last night.
I’m STILL trying to get over it LOL! I think I had nightmares about those damn zombies, I dunno. I woke up feeling like I’d just survived a plane ride full of those “zekes”, I tells ya.
I thought I was a G. But I was NOT prepared for these particular zombies, no ma’am and so sir! I’m pretty good at insulating myself from spoilers. I don’t do TV so any trailers I have to go find and/or click on myself to view. I also never read reviews of movies. Sometimes I read them after I’ve seen the movie in question, but really, I like to decide for myself if I’m gonna go see something.
And yeah, like I said, I’m pretty much an expert on zombies and whatnot. Or. So. I. THOUGHT! Like any zombie aficionado, I’ve seen dang hear ALL the movies and shows with ALL the different kinds of zombies. I’ve never really been freaked out by the zombies I’ve seen. Grossed out on occasion, but never actually FREAKED THE FUCK OUT.
While these fine specimens got in a lot of teeth chomping closeups it didn’t really look like they were there for the human buffet. Noooo what was driving them had No Time To Stop For Snacks. The way they went after people it was like they had to bite em and move on to the next person lickety split in order to spread the disease as fast as possible else explode or something.
They didn’t care if you were behind glass, a three story wall, flying in a helicopter. Newp such trivial barriers had no chance against these zombies. They would just dive in or at headlong towards their target. I really loved watching their body language – in between me screaming and throwing things at my screen that is.
As I said. I was murked. DONE.
Now I have to add in a whole new chapter to my Zombie Apocalypse Survival Handbook. Maybe three new chapters. Just in case we get these types of deaders. Because OMG you didn’t even get those graceful two or three minutes to make a decision that you got going on in The Walking Dead. You have about 10 seconds if you happen to be alone with someone who turns.
Good luck when you are in a crowd with people turning every other heartbeat. Really the only thing you can do is RUN LIKE HELL and chuck grenades everywhere. And I’m pretty miffed I won’t be able to gallop around on a horse and swinging my samurai sword. It will not be that kind of apocalypse. Darn it!
I also must give style and creepy and freak out points for the WAY in which people turned and those fricken SOUNDS they made once zombiefied. All that bone crackling and crunching, and I swear I heard some of that eerie Grudge-movie clicking thrown in there for extra extraness.
I live in an old place. Ish be clicking and creaking on occasion. Yes, I jump about three feet every time I hear something creak. I need help. I am unable to can.
