Starts on Halloween, who else will be watching this?
They were shooting in my hometown a few months ago. I was hired to give chair massages to the cast and crew, which was awesome! The makeup on the zombies was absolutely unbelievable. I think the show is going to be amazing. If not, it will be worth it just for the makeup and special effects.
It's very difficult to devise a comprehensive zombie escape/evade plan as we don't have definitive intel on the zeds. Is the outbreak viral, chemical, or supernatural? If the former two, one would be more inclined to hang out a home with secured points of entry and adequate non perishable goods. If the latter, all we can really do is stay on the run.
If I have legislative power I empty out the prisons and put the citizens in the prisons. They are the most fortified and usually in a secluded area. The open prison grounds I would convert them into farmland and plant sustainable crops. Get some livestock in there. Make sure there is at least one whore for every man on the premises, what's a zombie apocalypse without whores?
On a smaller scale. I would make a bee line to the tallest building in my neighborhood bringing my supplies and weapons. According to Cracked.com based on true scientific reasons a zombie apocalypse would end relatively quickly
In the event of a zombie apocalypse, I would be a lot more worried about survivors than zombies. A zombie apocalypse would be a good opportunity for people to generally act out whatever sociopathic tendencies they may have.
I think there would be roaming bands of survivors that get together to rape, pillage and generally make a bad situation much, much worse. There would be very little camaraderie and sense of "fellow man", and more "every man for himself". You probably wouldn't even be able to depend on the military either.
I think holing up somewhere with as much "boots beans and bullets" as you can would be a very bad idea. You would be a very easy target for a gang of ne'er do wells, as well as zombies. You would have to move constantly, travel light, stay out of sight and scavenge in order to survive.
I know that zombie movies teach us that we can all band together to survive, but you know that's not the case. It would be total chaos, with everyone running about shooting at each other. Not an environment conducive to building a survivor force to fend off the zombie assault.
