Ok i stared this discussion so her ir is. The closest they ever got to what i want to see. Was in the first 14 min of the DAWN RE-make. You wake up & everything is just staring to go crazy. Your neighborehood is insane. Its always the aftermath, when they are already held up somewhere. Then they try to figure out how to get out. Or its like LAND or the DEAD when the world is already destroid.
I want to see families trying to get to the shelters they are already over run.
I want to see the hospitals try to figure out whats happening. Bite victims coming in from everywhere.
I want to see the military bases fuck up & let infected people in. Then the base goes bezerk.
I want to see the goverment tell everyone thats it going to be ok. Eventhough they have no idea what to do.
I want to see the characters talk & cry about where are there kids & wifes are ect.
Airports swarming with people rtying to get anywhere. Planes crashing all over the place & taking out city blocks.
I mean really show how famlies of 5 or 6 are reduced to 2 or 3 or none, brutal,brutal shit.
Well you get the picture, They need to show all the stuff that happens. From the begining And mainly all the stuff that goes on in the middle. Make i gory , make it look the way it would if it really happened
I agree. I see the outbreak being handled in an Post-Katrina "you're doing a hell of a job Brownie" way. the govt completely fucking it all up, the religious right all flocking to church to pray their way out of the madness and those of us prepared starting to barricade up.
I agree with the point made earlier that it seems no one in these movies ever says "Hey, i bet these are Zombies just like in those movies. All we need to do is destroy the Brain". Instead they fart about for an hour no understanding why the G with no arms or legs is till coming after them. I guess in short i'd like to see a Zombie movie with Zombie educated people in it.
I would also love to see the holier-than-thou, know-it-all goodie-goodie get knocked off. I couldn't stand the "lady scientist" in Deep Blue Sea (I think that was the name) and I cheered when the sharks finally gobbled her up. Granted, that isn't a zombie movie, but just an example of easy-to-hate characters.
I agree with what most of you have said. The zombie subject matter has actually not been used to its full extent. Instead, we are getting the same old zombie general plots and characters over and over that when a movie like Shaun of the Dead comes out and makes comedy out of it, it's great. I have yet to write a zombie script, wait, scratch that, I did in high school, but it was really fucking terrible because I didn't know shit about screenwriting and was teaching myself at that point. A lot of what's being discussed I would potentially try to tackle in a future script.
