Sn0W1310 is an unknown quantity at this point

What makes zombies such an effective on screen menace?

Why are zombies so effective onscreen as a killing machine?

Simple,
ever since George Romero's breakout zombie film classic;
Night of the Living Dead (which starred a black man)
zombies have been captivating and enthralling movie goers
throughout the world....

Nothing scares you more than seeing the "survivors" being suddenly
cornered by a mass mob of hungry blood thirsty zombies.....

Imagine waking up one day,
to a flood of screaming and sirens whaling....

Then walk out your door and see corpses on the ground,
and zombies running amock,
people firing at one them......
blood.....everywhere....
screams.....

Imagine....


Rockn.

interesting opinion, but i've never found zombies that scary. i think it's the idea of them that is more frightening, or the social issues that they represent (for instance in a Romero film).

when you have a zombie film that actually tries to make the zombies frightening, such as Zack Snyder's remake of Dawn of the Dead or Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later, it feels like the film is taking itself too seriously.

the zombie genre has never been about legitimate scares to me, but the fun of being scared. look at Romero's Dawn of the Dead, that film is practically a comedy at points

Nothing scary about zombies. Not very effective on screen.

A majority of the audience that watch horror movies that focuse on a zombie infection are usually traumatized with the thougt in the back of teir minds, thinking "What if that hapens here?!". So when left alone in the dark, te majority either scram, or react to the thought that they're in the same room with the walking dead.
I'm kinda afraid of zombies, but I know how to overcome them: Shove my cousin in front of them ! XD
