Zombie Apocalypse: Halp!

Post by Freak » Thu Aug 05, 2010 6:54 pm

Heya!

For a while now I have wanted to write a zombie apocalypse spoof that has been rattling around in my head. It's finally time, but I have decided to go one step further and do something I normally avoid: introduce cliché.

So, I would be quite thankful if my fellow scrawlers could point out to me what they think are the most run-of-the-mill scenarios and characters in zombie apocalypse movies.


Your help is much appreciated :)

You've got to have at least one brave, handsome guy who sacrifices himself to save the rest of the team :nodyes

And does so, only to trap the rest into the house/shopping center/wal-mart/restaurant and be completely surrounded.

Then their only way out is in a large, fortified, transportation vehicle.

And a tragic, doomed couple, where one of them becomes infected and it's so heart-breaking.

... Also, zombie dogs!

Shotguns.

Lots and lots of shotguns.

Zombies!!! :cracked

Somebody always gets bitten and hides it. And then somebody else is in denial that said bitten person will become a zombie, because people you know don't turn! ...just all those other people out in the parking lot.

and dont forget the classic soul who is very loud and obnoxious, but is cowardly at heart who when the time comes will run as the others are over run by the zombie horde only to moments later to find "him/her" self locked in what they think is a safe outof the way place only to find it teaming with zombies and no way out.
