Zombies are very mainstream now. TV shows movies games and more. Media and people around the weird seem to be obsessed with zombies.

But could it really happen? Is it just some fantasy for some and horror for others? Could the world really have an outbreak of some sort that would turn humans into flesh eating monsters.

It may be childish to think about but there are a lot of people out there who take this serious and think it will happen and soon.

What's your take on it actually being a possibility.

anything's possible.

 

more likely the next major outbreak is just going to kill a huge swath of the world's population, but I suppose it could be zombies. :P

There already exists cases in the world of parasites that take over a host.

Is it so far past the realm of reason that something like the rage virus from 28 days couldn't exist?

Animating dead tissue is indeed a stretch, but some variation could happen.

Ask Louis CK, they already do!

 

I say no, unless it has to do with something along the lines of "28 Days Later."  Those are the most likely type of zombies.  It would have to be viral.  The biological possibilities are limited when you look at the energetic needs of the zombie.  Highly unlikely.

i've been a huge fan of zombies but sadly no, they won't happen.

 

 

atleast not in our lifetime, who knows what kind of crazy mutations humans and diseases will go through in the future.

Max Brooks said in an interview that to him, a 'zombie' attack could be anything that affects humanity as a whole.  He thought it would likely be lack of clean water first.

 

Which, coincidentally, was his #1 weapon to fight against zombies.  You don't have water, you can't run.  You can't run, you are meat.

Even if it happened they wouldn't last long because of the elements and lack of nutrition.   Weeks most likely, a month or two best maybe?

You didn't like the book either did you?

 

The movie was like a guide to poo decisions.

the book could have been better.  it just felt half assed.  i liked the concept and a few of the chapters, but most just felt like filler.  brad pitt is just a terrible actor and i've never seen him actually become a character.
