Someone prove me wrong.
Now, I’ve done my research, though limited, on Zombies. I’ve read a book on Zombie Autopsies, I’ve read the Newsflesh trilogy by Mira Grant, dabbled with The Walking Dead, and I’m even a member of the Zombie Research Society, that of which I carry my official card with me in my wallet. I’m fascinated with the concept of reanimation. I just don’t think its possible. At least not in the way it’s portrayed in movies and books. I mean, did you see Warm Bodies? (in all fairness, I loved the book, but the movie just made the book look like a joke).
I do however believe there could be a virus that can render us “zombies”. Will be suddenly desire blood, I don’t see why we would. It seems one day someone decided to mix a zombie with a vampire. (Vampires is a whole different blog post). One thing I did read was that in order for a “zombie” virus to infect you, you had to weigh a certain amount. So small animals or even babies wouldnt have the body mass to turn. I have never read where babies, because they can never be a zombie, can be the cure. If it were to ever happen of course.
The most accurate assumption I think comes in 28 Days, and 28 Days Later. The Rage virus sounds way more plausible than just rising from the dead to eat other human beings. I have lots of thoughts on this topic. This is probably just one of many blogs I will write about zombies. Here’s a pic of me at Stan Lee’s Comikaze in LA last year, wearing my steam geek tee shirt joining the Zombie Research Team. I welcome thoughts, comments, stories, questions.
