Zombie types in print and big screen. Last week to support #DeadNewWorld via @kickstarter!



In these undead worlds, it’s all about the brains… Whether you’re destroying them or eating them.



Dawn of the Dead

Becoming a zombie: Anyone who dies—no matter how—turns into a zombie. If bitten, the person will die within a few hours.
Intelligence: Instinct and some memories. Although, later zombies are able to reason and learn rudimentarily.
Speed: Rigor mortis slow…
How to kill a zombie: Must. Destroy. Brain.



Shaun of the Dead

Becoming a zombie: A zombie bite kills after a few hours, and then reanimation sets in.
Intelligence: Instinct and memories.
Speed: Rigor mortis slow…
How to kill a zombie: Must. Destroy. Brain.



28 Days Later

Becoming a zombie: Any contact with an infected person’s blood and the victim becomes infected within seconds.
Intelligence: Instinct (aggressive rage) only.
Speed: Human-like with a higher endurance.
How to kill a zombie: Anything that would kill a human.



Autumn

Intelligence: Only animation at first, then instinct, and possibly later some intelligence.
Speed: Rigor mortis slow…
