Reasons People Love Zombie Flicks

Reasons People Love Zombie Flicks

The bullet list in the article:

  1. You can plausibly be the hero
  2. You can have that cool stuff you’ve always wanted
  3. The playing field has been completely leveled
  4. You can get the girl (no word on if you can get the boy, too, if that is where your preference runs)
  5. It makes life simpler
  6. There are no more rules

Unlisted reasons why you should love zombie flicks

  • It's good simulation training.  (Should I go down to the basement?  No.  Should I get a well stocked defensible bunker?  Yes.  You see the pitfalls of what doing something stupid entails) 
  • It inures you to the horror that is definitely coming (see:  Friendships Final Duty)
  • You won't waste time on center mass shots on Zed, now, will you?  Again: the Learning Curve is flattened because of cinema
Remember:  You never select a shotgun as your primary anti-zombie firearm. It's great for onesy twosey, but zombies travel in hordes. The reload time is onerous, and the ammo, while effective, is heavy and bulky and short ranged.
