Zombie Week Day 5

Hey there, sexy. You want me to seduce you, you say? Well there's only one way to do that and that's with another zombie related post!

Today we're going to take a look at a subspecies of zombie. This zombie came to us from a Romero film and I think it added another dimension to the regular zombie. I am talking about none other than the smart zombie.

Now I am not going to say that a smart zombie is in any way smart as a human, but when you consider the fact that a regular zombie is about as smart as a roll of toilet paper then you have to admit that a zombie who can figure out how to use an assault rifle is the freakin Einstein of Zombies. This zombie, named Big Daddy, is one of the most dangerous of its type because it can actually direct other lesser zombies to do things like walk through a river, take apart some walls, and even teach them to figure out how the ever-elusive door knob works.

We saw glimmerings of a smart zombie in Day of the Dead in which a zombie managed to use a hand gun but that zombie seemed just as surprised as his victim when he managed to use the thing so I'm gonna chalk that up to luck and simplicity in gun design. Hell, I don't even know how to use an assault rifle. Don't those things need to be oiled and reloaded and junk?

You also have to appreciate the fact that Big Daddy works really hard for his fellow zombies. He isn't satisfied with just flesh for himself. He wants flesh for all of his kind. If only our own leaders had as much passion for us.

    I saw a zombie movie a while ago, it may have been the remake of Night of the Living Dead, which featured smart zombies. After they attacked a police car they figured out how to use the police radio to request more police to eat, and they later did the same thing with an ambulance to request more paramedics. Finally they even figured out how to set up a roadblock so that cars would stop and they could eat the drivers.

    This element of the movie was extremely dumb. But the zmobie master in this post sounds cool.

    I think that was a scene from Return of the Living Dead 2. Those zombies did talk but I would hardly call them smart or cunning.
