10 Commandments for Zombie Fanatics


Thou shalt let the naive think that holding out in a mall is the best thing to do in the zombie apocalypse.

Thou shalt never say thy weapon of choice is a katana, chainsaw, or machine gun.

Thou shalt not haughtily roll thine eyes when someone says they like zombies but do not know as much as thou.

Thou shalt hold thy tongue when thy neighbor says Zombieland wasn’t a good movie.

Thou shalt not rage when people think the World War Z movie is an accurate portrayal of the book.

Thou shall remain composed when someone opposes your opinion on fast or slow zombies.

Thou shalt refrain from imploding if thine neighbor asks, “Who is George Romero?”

Thou shalt calmly explain thine position on whether or not they were zombies in 28 Days Later.

Thou shalt not judge another based on whether or not they have seen Shawn of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead ’68, or Dawn of the Dead ’78.

Thou shalt never allow thine zombie beliefs to be based on any one actor, one movie, or one book.

  1. You had me almost until the end. Anyone who calls them self a zombie fan needs to sit the hell down and watch the original NotLD. It’s not optional, and it’s not difficult to get hands on a copy.

    I loved this one, “Thou shalt never say thy weapon of choice is a katana”. I can just picture most of the people who say a katana is their weapon of choice are holding a “katana” *and posing with it* while saying it. Good list

    But it’s okay for thy weapon of choice to be DEAD RECKONING? (via Land of the DEAD)
