what would your moves be??
As in physical zombie bashing or overall strategy?
To keep grabbing zombie hands at bay, I'd probably fashion some kind of weapon with my various powertools- I'm envisioning turning a garden spade into some kind of axe. (I think a weapon with a longer reach would be preferable, I'd take my knife thing from Borneo as backup.)
As overall strategy- I'd probably immediately head towards the hospital to try and commandeer a heavier vehicle and some medical supplies. (There's also a few takeaways en route.) From there I imagine I'd head north towards the police headquarters- it's a bit remote so would have less zombies. There access to firearms (hopefully) but there'd be a lot of communications equipment in the incident room with which to attempt to make contact with any other survivors.
The overall goal/plan would depend on the nature of the zombie uprising- whether it was a more traditional night of the living dead-esque scenario, or a rage virus style zombie apocalypse.
it's more of an uprising, although that's not even an entirely accurate term.
i would rather be a pirate than a ninja.
He'd come to my house to rescue me and my family. On his way he'd go to the police station and get a van and riot gear and stuff, then we'd go to tesco and get as much food and stuff as possible, then we'd steal a boat, load it up and go and live on one of the forts in the solent until we died of natural causes.
I would stock up on rations and supplies and get myself a temporary weapon. I would then either try and contact the army and enlist in helping the destruction of all zombies. If this didn't happen i would be elusive and only travel when i can. I would try to get coms so i can contact people i know (me and friends have a set of long range coms plan sorted in case of an event). We would then all travel south to where we went to school and break into both armouries and get propper weapons, i guess we'd then set up some kind of stag and live in the school. There is a room FULL of ration packs and lots of weapons, ammunition and supplies. Also a nice big fence. I guess we would only control a few buildings in the centre, but we'd have the 240 foot clocktower and use it as a sniping post and lookout (perhaps use morse code with a light and try and communicate with france which is easilly visible) I think with a group of 10-20 we could last there a few months on the supplies within (that's rat packs and then the trips to teachers houses which are on site to loot their food) then we'd probably have to go and get food occasionally, but it's defo the place we'd go. We know it well, it has weapons, good food supply and a lookout post for the continent to see if they have been compromised.
which is crouch in a corner with 3 friends and keep shooting till everything is dead, then move on a few hundred paces and repeat.
I think our generation is as prepared for a zombie uprising as we could possibly be. It's about time someone got on it. Does anyone know any crazy scientists or voodoo incantations we could use?
I have no idea what I'd do. I think I'd probably end up being bitten and I don't want to be a zombie :( I think my future house will have a zombie attack bunker.
My plan's still missing a few details, but:
WEAPONS - I've got a 2' solid steel bar sat next to my front door and it's the perfect weight/dimensions for a deadly cosh. There's also a whole host of gardening and other implements that could be used as basic bludgeoning tools.
My house wouldn't be safe, and one of the best siege places I can think of is the rehearsal studio I use - Music Complex in Deptford. It's amazingly secure, and ideal for a siege. Supplies could be looted from a nearby cornershop, or from Lewisham hospital on the way there.
Which brings me to the problem of transport. Since the buses probably won't be running, I'd have to steal a van or car. Since I don't know how to hot wire one, we'd have to nick one of the neighbour's cars (break into his house, steal keys, hey presto!). This would be a bit dodgy though because there might be zombies in there.
This is only a quick explanation cos I have to do some work and my boss is looking at me funny.
... have confidence in the authorities' capabilities to deal with the situation with minimal loss of life and expect things to be back to normal within a week or so. To be honest, I think Romero et al are a bunch of irresponsible scaremongers who should think more carefully about what they put in their cinefilms.
(apologies to Viz)
probably the wooded bit at the top of the village, establish as well protected a base as possible, then venture out for resupply whilst collecting other survivors.
I'd get loads of junk and build it into cool shit as well, abandoned cars would provide most of the stuff needed to generate power for electric fences, lighting, heating, zombie traps etc. Fuel would be the only problem, I'd have to start off with as much petrol as possible and work out a better solution in the mean time.
I really want to read Day of the Triffids again now.
get out to Ikea at Nottingham or Cov and live like a queen in all the comfy beds and dine on swedish meatballs forevermore.
I definitely think barricading yourself into a department store, massive supermarket (that sells beds and stuff) or Ikea is definitely the way to go.
Get up some stairs and then destroy them.
I didn't look at your profile before posting.
Anyway, zombies don't discriminate.
never know when the supply might fail, or a zombie might fall into the reservoir and you'll turn into one the next time you have a cup of tea.
was it VIPER? That was an awesome film.
Dress as a naff future cop, act badly, then advise my only surviving companions we should split up, before playing Moonlight Sonata on the Piano, having 50 heart attacks when a zombie dog comes through the window and finally getting killed due to the absence of green plants to eat.
The chances of ultimately surviving a zombie uprising are probably very, very slim. And even if you do survive, why do you want to live in a world that is full of decaying brain eaters? Go down fighting, I say. I mean, is it better getting torn limb from bloody limb by a horde of zombies, or forever watching your back with a pickaxe aloft? I think we all know. \m/
Not sure what the potential success rate is here.
and distribute fags with a big smile on my face to everyone, therefore it must mean I am The Ultimate Warrior. Right?
when the only interaction required is of the shovel/face variety they'll be less anxious I'm sure.
Plus, there's no chance of sex with a zombie. Or at least I'd hope not.
there isn't for women
who said she would find a gun and kill herself asap in such an event. i think i might agree (depending on the severity of the uprising obv)
As would you all
have a go though ?
My favourite dream ever featured me, a fuck load of zombies, a sawn-off shotgun, a motorcycle and a cliff. I should make it into a film.
After arming myself for the trip. If possible kidnap a captain of a ship but that's not an essential. Sail around for a bit and hope to stumble across a Destroyer/Aircraft Carrier and sail round the coast firing shells onto the country/fly a harrier and do similar.
Also harvest some of the zombie blood and when the threat has calmed down ransom the government and threaten to release the virus again.
or slow zombies..??
Zombies can be negotiated with, right?
If we all listen to each other there will be a human-zombie peace treaty soon enough...
</land of the dead>
But we are too late, the Zombie hordes have taken over Austin, TX.
and arm myself with a hammer/crowbar combo.
