Lets talk reality for a second. First of all, the body is an amazingly designed machine, if you will. With every movement, electricity is sent from your brain to your muscles via your nervous system. Oxygen is exchanged for CO2 in your cells and CO2 is exchanged for oxygen in your lungs. So on and so forth on so many infaninte levels both macro and microscopic. My point is, is that when movies say that dead and rotting corpses for like 10 years suddenly get up and start eating people...I'm not so sure about that. Has anyone seen a pice of beef jerky try to eat them? NO!
I LOVE what they did to the zombie folklore in 28 days later. Humans are infected with a 'rage virus' and go berserk on everyone in biting distance. I also like how they said the disease was so easily transmittable and how quickly it took effect. This would make more sense as to how the outbreak could spread so quickly in todays society. If zombies were slow, I feel that the human race in this day and age would be able to stifle the uprising quickly. I also like what they did in the new version of "Dawn of the Dead" With Ving Rhames and Maki Pfeiffer.
The humans do die but come back quickly and there is virtually no muscle necrosis or tissue necrosis (muscle/tissue death). However, later in the movie, the zombies are still moving when flesh is rotten.
How is this possible? At what point will they decompose so much that they will no longer be able to move? If someone answered these, the answer would logically be that it is IMpossible and once tissue dies it wont move.
For the sake of argument, and to indulge all of our fantasies, l want to know what you think about the realistic endeavor of the zombie. How do you think it actually COULD happen? And most importantly, how would we study them if they did 'come to life' LOL. Because, if... and i mean IF zombies popped up on the face of the earth, they might not respond to the rules of the movies.
