Hah!   Hahahahaha!  Another convert!  Yes!  Bro, how come you haven't been backing me up while I been saying this for years and years? 

Also add to your list that the DVD version of this film has the world's first DVD drinking game, wherein you must drink every time someone says "Rock & Roll,"  every time someone combs their hair, every time fire shoots out of something, every time a zombie's head explodes, and every time there's an explosion.

It were awesome!
Loved:
- Ace going Gordon Freeman on those zombies
- Ass kicking, plec flicking samurai, sword wielding slicing alien motherships in two, rock and rollers!

Disturbed by:
- Whacky bad-guy in short shorts.
- Transvestite-fancying (only because it's not what I would have done)

Great laugh.  big grin

I got the Wild Zero dvd. Sure, it may be a slightly illegal copied version, but I did pay 20 Aussie funland dollars for it. And it DOES contain the extras - most importantly the drinking game!

Land of the Dead comes out next week and many consider this to be George A. Romero's last zombie movie.  But Sci-fi has news that Romero plans to do a sequel.

read about it: http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire2005/index.php?id=31272

 
Quote
Romero Ready With More Dead

George A. Romero, who returns after two decades to the genre he created with the upcoming zombie film Land of the Dead, told SCI FI Wire that the movie may mark the beginning of a new round of Dead films. "I mean, if this opens strong, I might be in a situation where I have to do another one of these or will be asked to do another one of these right away," writer/director Romero said in a news conference. "In which case I've sort of left the characters, you know, the truck and those characters, [intact]. I'd want to almost make it chapter two of the same movie, if that happens, and just sort of finish the story."

In Land of the Dead, Romero picks up the story of an America overrun with walking dead, which he last visited in 1985's Day of the Dead, the third movie in a trilogy that began with 1968's Night of the Living Dead. In Land of the Dead, Simon Baker plays Riley, the leader of a group of guns-for-hire who help sustain a walled city, one of the last remaining outposts of living humans. Romero says he has ideas for more films using the same characters, which include a feisty female warrior played by Asia Argento.

"I have an idea of ... how to go with it, and I would think of it in my mind as almost one film," Romero said. "If I had to do it like next year. Unless we get nuked or something and there's something else to talk about."

If a Land of the Dead sequel happens, it might affect Romero's ability to contribute a short film to Mick Garris' upcoming Masters of Horror anthology series for Showtime, he added. "If that happens, I may not be able to do the Masters of Horror. And I've been so tied up on this thing that I haven't been able to write a script for it. Mick sent me a couple of scripts. A couple of them are pretty nice. So I'm still hoping that I can get a couple of weeks and be able to do that. But I have a couple of other things that we're working on. Again, everything would get trumped if they want to do a sequel to this."

For his part, Baker confirmed that he's got an option to reprise the role of Riley in a Land of the Dead sequel. Land of the Dead opens June 24.

Pitt Clemens guide to the common Zombie.

What is a Zombie?
"Zombie" is a generic term derived from a voodoo refrence for re-animated dead.  Zombies come in all shapes and sizes, but all usually carry these two qualifications:
-Undead
-Hungry
Some are brought back to life by large doses of a specialized radiation, some by viruses, and others are forced back into the realm of the living due to a lack of housing in the afterlife.  Whatever the reason this is sure: None can be reasoned with.

How can I recognize a zombie?
To begin with, it is rare that you will ever recognize zombie as singular thing.  It is almost unheard-of that a zombie will be alone.  Zombies will be in large numbers, massing toward living things in order to consume them.  While some have a penchant only for human brains, most will consume any living flesh they can get to.  Zombies are usualy slow-moving human-forms with chunks of rotting flesh, open wounds, continually chomping jaws and characterized by dull-wittedness.

What to do if you see a zombie
First: Don't panic.  You have one advantage the zombie doesn't have: You are smarter than it is.  As long as you are focused and aware you have a chance to survive.

Second: It is You or the zombie.  One of you will be destroyed in the next minute or so.  Whoever the zombie may have been: a relative, friend or even a lover-it is irrelivent.  It is going to kill you if you don't destroy it first.

Third: Seek other humans.  Abandon all Prejudices and classisms and join into an-inter-reliant team to combat zombies.

How to fight a Zombie
If the zombie is alone (only ALMOST-unheard of), just increase your pace, and walk toward the most open, zombie-free area available.  The zombie you just outran is slow, and will therefore take some time to catch up with you.  Wherever you end up, you must immediately find an arsenal with which to fight the zombie(s).

Do not attempt hand to hand combat.  The zombie has teeth, as well as the not-uncommon jutting bone fragment.  These may result in slight cuts and abrasions which cannot be treated, but will inevitably infect you and turn YOU into one of THEM!  Any contact with zombie skin, flesh or garments wheather orally or via the mucus membrane will have the same results.  Almost any weapon optimum at three feet can be effective on a (single) zombie. 

Bludgeons and long blades should be used to take out the zombies appendages, before dealing a final slaying blow to the zombie's Achilles heel: The head.  When using a bludgeon or blade be aware that the weapon you are weilding is to be regarded as a biohazard.  Firearms are effective only when emphasis is on accuracy and headshots. Incendiaries and explosives are extremely effective in combatting zombies at long range.  Grenade and Gasoline trap  attacks can take out multipule zombies, but may result in secondary casualties to human combatants.  Use with caution.  It is very important you avoid low-voltage electrical weapons such as tazers, they have no effect on zombies, and the only electrical pulse that could have any effect on them are upwards of 500V.

In the unfortunate, but sadly, likely event that you are over-run by zombies, you have no choice but fortification.  In this event you must hold up inside and barricade the sturdiest available structure. 

Barricades such as furniture and appliances will be effective for only so long before the zombie horde breaks it's way in.  For this reason, it is advised you avoid traditional houses and choose concrete structures or buildings that are already built from the fortification concept, such as police departments, prisons, court-houses or millitary installations many of these will also provide needed weapons.  If there is an installation that matches this description in the immediate area, and you are not in dire need of fortification at your current location, it is strongly reccomended that you arm up with supplies and an arsenal and attempt to re-locate there.

While you are fortified you must tend to five vital aspects of fortification which you can remember with the acronym: POWER.

P: PERIMETER
Always maintain a Perimeter, a firm wall between you and the zombies.
O: OBSERVATION.
Survey the perimeter constantly, make sure there are no weaknesses or inlets for the Zombie Mass.  Also observe your fellow fortifiers, for they too may become zombies.
W:WEAPONS
Maintain a constant and varied arsenal, whether improvised or intended to combat the zombies, should the worst come to pass.
E:ESCAPE
There should be a route which you can take and zombies can't, such as a trap-door or rope-climb that can bring you either out of the shelter or to an inaccessable perimeter.
R:RATIONS
Food and water from an un-tainted source will be vital to survival until help arrives.

Types of zombies

There are several types of zombies you should be famillair with if you are to survive the appocalypse.


THE DOMESTIC ZOMBIE

This is the zombie cheifly referred to in this guide.  Slow moving, unintelligant, dangerous alone lethal in numbers.  use extreme caution


ANGRY ZOMBIE

This zombie is characterized by a direct link with evil, demonic or generally il-manerred supernatural forces.  They are more intelligant than the Domestic Zombie, but usually have a short-lifespan and an effective area limmited to it's home focus of pure evil.  Avoid it and it's stomping ground.


ATHLETIC ZOMBIE

Faster and meaner than the domestic type the athletic zombie will come rushing at you headlong.  Use automotive vehichles to outrun them.


NRA ZOMBIE

This zombie has figured out that a gun can work both ways.  Still not too bright, can be led to shoot other zombies, but nevertheless, try to keep out of shooting distance.


ROBO-ZOMBIE

In the future when zombies evolve past the oral phase they will simply collect all living minds into one undead-collective.  Certain limits to rehabillitating the robo-zombie have been achieved, but largeley they remain hostile, intent on consiuming more life forms, and technologically advancing the zombie collective.  Hope that your super-weapons will be enough.


STACY

A Stacy is a particular breed of zombie, induced when a teenage girl is wholely and totally consumed by the feeling of love.  When this love over-powers the girl she will die, but the love's strength will bring her back to life, and hungry to express the love through consuming the nearest victim.  Stacies are slow-moving as the domestic zombie, but cannot be killed save for complete dismemberment into upwards of 250 pieces.  This is known as "repeat killing."  A crack team of forces as well as hand-held chainsaws have been made available to suit this need.  Stacies are easy to spot because the victim will experience Near-death happiness for a week before expiring.  Upon reanimation, deal with a Stacy accoridingly.

Thank you for reading this guide, and wish this day to be the best it can be in this God-forsaken, hellstorm armageddon.

Good guide, but a couple of points. Grenades injure mainly by shrapne, not the explosian itself, so unless a bit flys throught its eye or temple and into its brain, any damage it otherwise would cause in humans is irrelivant. Also, setting a zombie on fire will just result in a flaming zombie. It'll keep coming at you until its flesh is comletely seared away, or enough is seared away that it can't move anymore.

Also, where did the "Stacy" come from?

Bombs: Blow zombies into chunklets Nuff said

Fire: Zombies on fire become pre-occupied with fire.  Many fear fire.  also, yes they burn and become inannimate.

Stacy: The movie Stacy which has the most heart-breaking line in a zombie movie EVER.

Grenade rely mainly on shrapnel! Their explosive force is neglegable, save for those in a one and a half foot radius. Also, zombies have no feeling in their flesh, and know no emotion other than hunger. Once they see you, they won't stop until one of you is dead (or re-dead). Nothing can distract a zombie from it's prey, save for juicier prey.

How do I know this? Zombie Survival Guide.

M67 Fragmentation Grenade:

     Weight -                14 oz
     Range -                 40 m
     Kill Radius -            5 m
     Casualty Radius -    15 m

so in other words:  2 meters of zombies chunkafied, 3 meters out of commission, 10 meters, limbless, busted heads.  Maybe not dead but definately out of comission.  Maybe the zombie guide would also like to see PSI for an HE grenade and compare it to torsion strength on bones.

Fire: definatley good to kill zombies, I remember from night of the living dead how they took flight after they caught light, and even if it doesn't kill them immediately it'll be hard to see or smell you while their eyes are burning and their brain is being cooked in it's own head.

Are you done sucking all the joy out of this topic, Wooter, or do you have more?

interesting reversal: a virus brings the dead back to life, but also turns them into chocolate and concentrated cocaine.  A meer whiff sends any person into a maddened feeding frenzy and the zombies have to run for their afterlives to keep from being eaten bu savage humans.
