A commentary on Zombie types (Part 4)

Part 4 - Aggressive and Strong Zombies

In recent years, Hollywood has given rise to a new breed of zombies - the ultra strong and aggressive type. Tradition now gives way to new ideas where the human victim did not reanimate as a corpse (in the sense that they were already dead), but gets turned into a zombie while still human.

The usual sources for the infection include Viruses, Aliens, Occult magic or some movies simply just ignore the source and dives straight into the action - that there is no explanation for the cause.

In 28 Days Later and the sequel 28 Weeks Later, the zombies are not the usual rotting, mindless walking corpses but rather, humans who were infected by a "Rage Virus" which gives them uncontrollable rage, aggression and an insatiable thirst for human blood.

They run, hunt and chase after the normal humans. These zombies act like your typical madman.

In the British film, The Devil's Playground, England was hit by a massive infection by a experimental virus. The infected quickly develop a taste for human flesh and they somehow acquire extra mobility and agility to hunt for their prey.

In actual fact, Parkour practitioners were actually recruited to depict these super mobile zombies in the film.

In computer games like Left 4 Dead and Call of Duty: Zombies, the zombies are also depicted in a aggressive and mobile manner. This is to instill a greater sense of action and fear in the game for the player. What fun would there be if you just fought mindless, limping zombies? They would just stand there and stare at you, waiting to be shot.

Whatever it is, it seems like zombies are here to stay. In recent years, a resurgence of zombie movies have occurred. As part of this resurgence, there have been numerous direct-to-video (or DVD) zombie movies made by extremely low-budget filmmakers using digital video. These can usually be found for sale online from the distributors themselves, rented in video rental stores or released internationally in such places as Thailand.

A USA Today review noted that "Zombie hordes are everywhere!" Especially on screen and on stage, "There's no stopping the zombie invasion."
