    I'm not sre if this thread is a good idea after Dredd closed the other one :scratchchin:.

    Perhaps I went a bit too far there, but that might be a matter of krischophobia, the fear of not being politically correct enough.

    So, what exactly are we supposed to discuss here?

    The fear of the dead not being buried!
    - the fact that you might die one day? ("might" because by the time it's our time, we might have found a way around it)
    - the fact that people might not bury you? (you want to be put under, or are afraid your body will be used for organ testing, or are you afraid that you might not get into a certain afterlife if you aren't buried?)
    - the fact that you might come back as a zombie? (well, if you are the zombie, you have nothing to worry about :thumbsup: )

    Funny. :)

    Also reminds me of that Pratchett quote people here seemed to like -
    Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day. Set him on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.

    And that reminds me of this:

    "Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Don’t teach a man to fish…and feed yourself. He’s a grown man. And fishing’s not that hard"

    My hypothesis on what zombie movies are really about:

    We are violent by nature. We have a strong subconscious desire to brutally murder our bosses, bullies, co-workers, those of whom we're jealous, etc. Zombies are a way of venting this frustration without consequence. Zombies are actually representatives of real human beings. They are shot, hacked, set ablaze, dismembered, crushed, dragged and mutilated in unconscionable ways because we actually want to inflict this damage on people we know. Zombies are usually ugly, diseased, and mindless to help justify their slaughter. However, there are even uglier, more diseased and impaired people in reality who you'd go on a heroic rant about over the mere thought or joke of pushing them in a mud puddle. This moral grandstanding is to cover up the fact that you actually want to kill them.

    Have a nice day!

    Dang, you going all psychological, I'm simply intrigued by post apocalyptic movies in general,
    the idea of survival in a world with no laws/society, where everything is different than what you're used to.

    I'm the opposite, it's such a milked idea and most of it is boring and too much of the same.

    Agreed. I enjoyed the first few movies I saw like this but have since moved on.
