Even a potentially mediocre horror movie is easy to spice up with zombies – as long as the zombies get their comeuppance! Zombies almost always make everything better.
If you watch The Walking Dead show on AMC (or if you plan to catch up via Netflix), then you might be interested in this chart: a statistical analysis of every zombie kill done by each character, which also includes the weapon type used!
Be wary that this will include a few major spoilers for Season 1 and Season 2, and it will also spoil any surprises from the first half of Season 3 (so if you’re not caught up, you might want to wait!).
I don’t know why, but after reading through that chart, I have the sudden urge to play Left 4 Dead or Dead Rising – maybe I just want to do my part to drive back the zombie apocalypse?
