George Romero is a Carnegie Melon grad. He STILL films Zombie movies set in Pittsburgh.

Day of the Dead is still my all-time favorite Zombie movie...

This reminds me: I haven't played Left 4 Dead all week. If you haven't played it, shame on you. It's probably the best action/shooter game I've ever had the privilege of playing, and by far the best involving zombies. You will definitely love this.

I heard it was good only on multiplayer (which I don't play).

I liked Dead Rising on the 360, though...that was freaking awesome Zombie destruction game set in a mall!!!

No, those are lies. It's better on multiplayer, but you can still have an assload of fun just playing the regular game. It's one of the few games I've played where if you don't have anyone else to help, the computer AI teammates actually do pretty well.

And, what's different in Left 4 Dead is that the zombies aren't slow or stupid, and there are a TON of them. Usually a game with zombies falls short on at least one of those three. These are definitely virus-based zombies, not undead zombies. Basically, picture some of the mob scenes in "28 Days Later", but instead it's a video game that you can actually play. And with full gore and bodies piling up knee-deep.

Also, they have an option in multiplayer where YOU CAN BE ON THE ZOMBIE SIDE. Tell me any other game that does that.

That's awesome! What show was that?

I was always a huge fan of the Night of the Dead series and anything else Romero or Savini did. I was lucky enough to go to the premier of Land of the Dead here in Pittsburgh back in '05 and got to meet both of them. Very cool guys.

My fiances big brush with fame is that he grew up in the house that the movie The Crazies (1973 Romero film) was filmed in up in Zelionople.

Worst (and funniest) zombie movie ever filmed in Pittsburgh though is Bloodsucking Pharoahs in Pittsburgh ('91)...a must see for any true cheesy zombie film lover!

You ever sit around the house and wonder, "how can I survive a Zombie attack?"

I have, and the first thing I'd have to do is tear up my huge back dack for the wood, to cover all the huge windows I have across the back of my house. Man, I have like 40 feet worth of windows over looking my back yard with 3 different Sliding glass doors. Man, I'd need at least 2 days to prepare.

I'm totally Effed if the Zombies come on fast without warning Dawn of the Dead Style. Totally Effed. If its more like Night of the Living Dead, I should be ok, because then I'd have some warning since I don't live near a graveyard and I do have the weapons I require to get in some head shot kills for any that happen to get to my neighborhood.

But if its the Running Zombies of Dawn of the Dead (Remake) or the 28 Days Later mother effers, I'm freaking screwed. Then its all about going Mobile in the full size conversion Van and getting to a high point.

My boyfriend already has the plans all worked out for our escape route when the zombie apocalypse is upon us. Trust me he's a Zombie movie junkie, he's given this serious thought. The fact that he's thought of this makes it easier to sleep at night after watching said zombie flicks.

We have a canoe, a jeep, a dog and a cat, camping gear and we plan to head out to Waterloo, Alabama (middle of no where surrounded by water)... the plan is more detailed than this but you get the idea... it also involves guns yada yada yada.

Dino 6 Rings

See I'm not sure I'd want to be that isolated where there aren't other people around. Cause if there are other people, well then, that increases my odds of survival since they can be Zombie Food before me.

I'm not sure about in the woods either. Maybe if Zombies can't swim, but I'm pretty sure they could float across a body of water or at least sink and walk along the bottom to get where I was hiding on an island or what not.

Why at Cat? I get the dog to give you warning Terminator Style, but a Cat? They aren't good in crisis situations, they just scare the crap out of you when you go to investigate the noise, then cause you to let your guard down at the most critical time.

Dude. Zombies can't get across water. Everyone knows that. At best they can flail around until they get back out the way they came from; mostly, they just get stuck. Being on some kind of boat, or better yet an island, would definitely be the way to go. If there's a zombie attack, I'm stealing a boat and try to get to Hawaii; that way I'd get a free vacation out of it too.

Totally Disagree, Dawn of the Living Dead Remake, the people totally get out of the city, after the horror and mind screw of having to find "the boat keys" and what happens, they get to the island, and think, "sweet"...then...Zombie attack. How did the freaking zombies get to the island? floated right across my man...floated right across.

Also, Shock Waves, Nazi Zombie flick, total water zombies...and of coarse the ever classic Zombie vs Shark Scene in the movie Zombie Flesh Eaters...

I've been a big fan of zombie movies since they scared the crap out of me as a kid! I remember being terrified for weeks after first seeing Night of the Living Dead so it's only natural to think about surviving such a thing!
Where I'm at now I'm pretty much screwed-the food here wouldn''t last long under seige & I'm not too confident about any attempts to strengthen the place. I have a gun but limited ammo. I'd have to go mobile & try to hook up with other survivors& /or at least stay on the move.

Does that mean that anything that ate dead zombie flesh would also become Zombie? So Zombie Possums? Zombie Crows and Zombie Rats?

Ef that. I want no part of Zombie Animal Attacks.

Buzzards are big nasty looking birds, too! On my way home from work in this one area sometimes they gather in huge numbers circling around in the sky, dozens & dozens of them! Maybe they roost in the trees there by the river or something...
But if you go by the old school zombie thing, buzzards eating the zombies shouldn't matter, should it? Unless they were already dead &/or bitten? Buzzards, being what they are, should be immune to just about anything. If not, we are doubly screwed if the animal element enters into the survival equation.
I can't believe we are discussing such a thing!:laughing:

bottom line in any situation, never under estimate what your enemy may do.. in this case... never think to yourself I'm safe here, a zombie can't do _______. They probably can, or will.

I've always worried about being out in the middle of no where, then again... I don't study zombie movies like my boyfriend does, sooo I'm going to go with his plan... mostly because mine is based on screaming, crying and hiding in the cellar, and clearly that never works out for anyone in zombie or horror flicks! :wink:

Dino 6 Rings
03-09-2009, 12:41 PM
Hiding the Cellar is never a good idea, that's true. No excape route from a basement. Unless you have tunnels, just be sure those tunnes don't lead through a graveyard, that would be bad, very bad.

Do Zombies Freeze? I mean, what if you were high up in the mountains and it was really really cold? Maybe then they could freeze up and not be able to get you?

Or maybe on a huge boat, out in the middle of the ocean...but then again...maybe they'd just float to you and eventually catch you while you were sleeping...

Zombies burn, so maybe you could live inside a ring of fire. Yeah...that might work out...if you had plenty of food already...

Man...Zombies are the ultimate bad guys...

Were they undead zombies or virus zombies? Seems like virus zombies are actually still alive and can die from things a normal person could die from, so drowning would definitely be on the list. Undead zombies, maybe I can see them floating across water, but I don't think it's usual. Most of the time, water still seems like a pretty effective barrier against zombies.

03-10-2009, 07:06 PM
I still think a much better strategy in any virus zombie attack is to try and steal a boat. If you can make it to an island a few miles offshore, that's a good start. If you can make it to Hawaii, you're golden.

An undead zombie attack might be a lot harder to deal with in the long run if it was on a big enough scale. Pretty much the only way to deal with it would be to stay well-armed and mobile at all times. Barricading yourself or getting somewhere high up works for a while, but like we've all seen, you can't do it indefinitely.

If you've ever seen the remake of Dawn of the Dead where they explode the propane tank & show it lighting up the area around the truck, there are countless zombies, wall to wall. We don't realize how people have taken over every inch of everything, everywhere! (personally I think this planet could use a good house cleaning)
If you take a fatalistic view of it, survival is more like asking yourself "How long can I make it before I decide to shoot myself in the head"
At least in the viral movie 28 Days Later, there was some hope at the end.
Stealing a boat would be easy enough for me, sort of, but then you have to worry about gas, & being that I can't sail, I'm screwed. Boat idea not an option for me.

Got to figure that everyone would have that same idea, so you'd not only be dealing with Zombies, but also the Road Warrior Style bands of nut cases with guns that are looking out for their own as well.

I'm thinking maybe taking over a prison wouldn't be such a bad idea, after of coarse you kill and burn all the inmates. But high walls, barb wire, no tunnels, plus you need a helicopter on the roof for quick escapes and food runs.

Staying mobile works til you have to stop for gas, then they "get ya" when you go in for candy bars.

i think the only bad thing would be when will the food run out??? like in RE:E... they were running out of food b/c there were SO many of them and it was only 6 months since the whole outbreak started..

and obv.. the water would be a safe bet as they prob wouldn't be able to swim so y not stay on a big ass yacht or a submarine???

This is why taking over Alcatraz would probably be the best thing you could do, ever. Not only a prison but a prison on an island. The current moves fast enough that it would have no problem sweeping zombies out to sea, although if you're any good at swimming, you should be able to get there without a boat. You could fish and probably grow some food, and pillage the remains of several rioted cities if you had the guts.

Although if you were stuck there and could see the city just a couple miles away but knew you couldn't go there because of the zombies, that might drive you crazy eventually. Also, if they were undead zombies, I'd worry that the occasional one would wash up on the shore by chance, although it's pretty sheer cliffs all around, so maybe they wouldn't be able to get up anyway.

I like you're way of thinking. If it all hits the fan...you better give me a call my Good Friend :chuckle:

A fortress Island with fishing available. Food source. Maybe hook up some Solar Panels or Wind Mill power as well. With Motion Spot lights just in case one said Zombie does wash up on shore. That's good thinking.

See, together, we could survive. That's the Spirit.

Dogs too, I want dogs to bark and warn me, chickens for food and eggs, and to breed more chickens for food and what not. Water though? Is water in the San Fran bay Salt or Fresh? I think its Salt because of the sharks I hear about, so we'd need a water filtration device as well.

Parts of it are freshwater, parts are brackish but still drinkable, parts are saltwater, and the border between drinkable and non-drinkable constantly changes depending on how much water is running out of the rivers. But basically the closer you are to the ocean, the saltier it gets, and Alcatraz is in one of the more salty parts, so you probably can't drink the water there. BUT, in a zombie attack, they wouldn't be diverting about half the river water for agriculture anymore, so there might be enough extra flow to make it drinkable. Even if not, you still wouldn't have to go ashore to get fresh water; you could just go a few miles upstream in a boat, fill up and come back. I'm betting collecting rainwater would also be a big deal.

There aren't really any sharks in the bay, just off the coast on the ocean side of the Golden Gate. One more thing: The bad news is that most of the bay is actually only about 10 feet deep because it's full of silt that washed down from gold country back in the 1800s. The good news is that any zombies on the bottom would probably get stuck in it because it's basically really sticky muck. Around Alcatraz, it gets closer to 100 feet deep though. Also, the entire bottom of the bay is covered with clams that got over here from Asia and had no natural predators. Although I'm personally allergic to shellfish, so that wouldn't help me.

Alcatraz also did have its own power plant, although it doesn't work anymore. But if that could be fixed, you'd really be in business. Except for having a fuel source.
The more I think about it, the better that place looks. I just worry that there are about 10 million people around here who would have the same idea. Hopefully most of them would drown.

Food source, Fish as long as it isn't a Viral Walking Dead issue, cause what if the waters with the first are contaminated.

I think that the fish-getting-infected question is absolutely huge. If there's any hope of survival beyond a few months, you have to assume that fish couldn't become undead/infected, or at least not capable of turning people into zombies. Otherwise, the oceans would be no barrier at all, and I have no doubt that eventually, zombies would spread to the whole globe, including islands. Maybe you'd have a few groups of people who got lucky and figured out you have to avoid water completely, and also they have another food source, but for the most part, I think everyone would be screwed even if they were in Hawaii or Iceland.

That raises an important question: We all know you can get infected if a zombie bites you, but presumably, the fish would be eating bits of the zombie and getting infected that way. Does it work that way? I can't ever recall an example of a person biting a zombie. Although in Dead Alive, one guy gets infected by accidentally eating some zombie pus that made its way into his oatmeal. So you'd have to hope the inter-species barrier would be enough to keep fish from getting infected.

I also don't like the idea of going to the far north to escape. With undead zombies, it wouldn't do much good because they'd wander up there and the cold wouldn't affect them. With virus zombies, maybe it'd be OK because of the extremely long distances -- maybe Alaska and Siberia would be off-limits because a virus-based zombie would die before it could make it across 800 miles of barren wilderness. But if that's not the case, I'd sure hate to be all the way up in Northern Canada worrying about how we're going to barely survive the elements, and then in the summer, all of a sudden the zombies show up.

edit: oh yeah, plus, if you escaped the zombies by going far north, then I bet the vampire problem would be horrendous.

I think if you eat Zombie flesh you are infected officially. Kind of like drinking Vampire Blood.

As for Fish, I say they can't be infected if its a Living Dead issue, if its a Viral Issue...we are all screwed.

So it sounds like if it's undead zombies, your best bet is an island, if it's virus-based, it depends on whether the virus can be transmitted to fish. If no, your best bet is still an island, if yes, it's Siberia.

And if other animals besides fish can get it, you're completely screwed whether it's virus or undead, so your only hope would be if you were in some place like a NORAD bomb shelter under a mountain and you had enough food for a year or so, and you could wait it out until everything outside died. Then I guess you'd have to be a vegetarian after that because there would be no more animals.

A stolen or "borrowed" Submarine has potential. Or even a huge ship like Dennis Hopper and his villians had in Water World.

I don't think a Zombie could climb up the side of the ship, unless it came up the anchor or something, you would be pretty safe.

steelreserve

I don't think they have any spaceship, space station, or anything like that where you could survive for more than a few months. Even if you could grow food, you'd run out of water or air, or you'd eventually die because your muscles would atrophy in zero-G.

As long as you could get food, a submarine would probably be OK, especially if it was one of those new ones that can keep its reactors going for 20 or 30 years without refueling. Although if I could choose whatever I wanted, I'd want a convoy with an aircraft carrier so you could bomb the shit of somewhere if you needed to, and a couple destroyers that could lay down covering fire if you were going ashore. And obviously a few tankers so all the ships and planes could have gas.

The first thing I'd do would be to go to Key West and raid all the dirty T-shirt shops.

Yeah, but the problem is that while those would all be good ideas on paper, I still have some serious doubts about our ability to take over an aircraft carrier if it really came down to it. I think we would definitely need help.

Unless we could walk in uncontested because all the crew were killed by zombies. But then the ship would probably be overrun by thousands of zombies too, so that doesn't work. So I guess it's back to the island plan as the best option.

Oh, also, I think a really funny joke to play on someone would be if you could convince everyone in the town to pretend to be zombies for a day and everyone was in on it except for a few people. And you staged a really realistic fake zombie attack and didn't let them get to their cars, and then watched them panic.

I guess that would be pretty funny unless they found some shotguns and started shooting the zombies not knowing it was a joke. But I guess that's a chance you'd have to take.

That could definitely be a problem. Here in California, even if there was a real zombie attack, I'm pretty sure if you pulled out a gun, people would just yell at you for overreacting and say, "You need to be more tolerant! Do you think it'd be OK to pull a gun on ME if I was different? If you were in their shoes, all you'd want is to be accepted! They deserve some understanding, and a little help."

Actually, a zombie attack would probably be quite a reality check for this stupid state. Most of the people like that would just get eaten, and the heroes would be the people with assault weapons and illegal magazines. Talk about a 180.

It should be noted that I actually had a dream kind of similar to what I described above, only instead of zombies, the newspaper I used to work at was being attacked by the Flood from Halo. I don't think we made it.

We're in the process of buying a solid concrete block house, we'll have our hurricane security stuff for the windows & a generator by then no doubt.
