I think it's funny that the popular stereotype for zombies always seems to fall back on the Dan O'Bannon zombies that we only really saw in the Return of the Living Dead movies, and even then, only the first three. I'm talking about the BRAIIINNNNNSSS! thing. O'Bannon's zombies did that. Romero's zombies, and most others in movies, were full-on cannibals. Most of the time when you see a zombie in a movie or on a TV show, it's biting the neck, tearing out gut, etc.  It's only the ones in the RotLD series that went for the skull to devour brains, and it's only these zombies who actually spoke enough to say "BRAINS!" -- Most other zombies can't speak at all.

So why is the O'Bannon zombie the popular stereotype when it was so briefly in the spotlight, while the other type-- the Romero-esque cannibal who can't speak-- is far more ubiquitous in the actual movies?

I say it's time for a return to O'Bannon zombies in movies. Not just in RotLD movies (Which, unlike NotLD were never remade) but in other franchises.

ReapTheChaos: What's this sudden fascination with zombies lately? I realize there will always be those nut cases out there with this kind of stuff but it seems like this whole zombie thing is getting a little too mainstream.

They say you can tell a lot about a culture by what they fear. Vampires were popular when they represented out of control or forbidden lust. Zombies represent our new fears of alienation, overpopulation and war.

Shadowknight: I don't mind, as long as they don't go the "Twilight" route and try to make them a tragic, tortured, sentient figure. I like my zombies brainless and lumbering. Fast zombies are bad enough.

A movie came out recently called Warm Bodies that did just that.
