Things Learned From Zombie Movies

Movies usually have messages attached to them. It can be significant, obvious messages. Or it can be messages you truly have to dig deep for. With my experience watching zombie TV shows and movies, there are definitely some significant messages and life lessons going on. Lessons that will certainly come in handy once the zombie apocalypse comes along.

Aim for the head stupid!

I think by now people would know this one. But we still see it going on every day. An uneducated person starts whaling away at the body, and stands stupefied as the zombie is still approaching. That’s because you are shooting the body! Has no one been taking notes? One bullet in the head and you are good to go.

An undead loved one will not remember who you are

You may have been together for 20 years; you may have 3 children together; it may be your child. No matter what the relation is, kill it. Chaining it up, feeding it, protecting it will not help. As soon as that zombie has a chance, you are done. It doesn’t care! When the zombie apocalypse comes, your closest loves ones may become your enemies.

Don’t let your guard down, ever.

We all see it in movies, the hero thinks he/she has survived because he/she hasn’t seen a zombie in awhile or has killed the last of the herd. Rookie mistake. A mistake that will cost you your life. Never assume that it is over. The moment you assume it is over is the moment you just became vulnerable.

Move around, travel. Don’t stay in one place.

Now, a lot of people are guilty of this one. And why not? It’s a good assumption to make that staying in one place and gathering reinforcements is a good idea. However, for one of you there are about 100 zombies. 100 zombies that know you are cooped up in one place and once you run out of ammo, you have no place to go. Traveling city to city and gathering necessary equipment is the way to go.

Never wander off anywhere by yourself

You are in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, and you want to go off into the dark by yourself?!? You might as well say goodbye to everyone for good before you leave. We all see how much trouble a person can get into when they are alone. And you know the zombies can just sense it. At the very beginning of the zombie apocalypse, pick a bathroom buddy, preferably someone that is liked. This will be your ticket to staying alive.

People say watching these types of movies are a waste of time. They are ridiculous and have unnecessary amounts of gore. I say that’s nonsense. There are plenty of lessons to be had. I just listed 5 really good lessons here. Regardless, everyone has their own opinions. But once the zombie apocalypse hits, we shall see who will be having the last laugh (neither of us).
