Lately – my obsession with zombies started to fade away – and this not because I’m not interested in this weird and evil face of the human imagination (?) – but because I was preoccupied with other sort of things (normal and real for once).
I haven’t seen a zombie-themed movie in months. I haven’t played any video-games involving beheading half-rotten-corpses or destroying them completely. Pretty much nothing. But when I encountered the picture below – something awakened inside. Why deny some element that is part of my subconscious and something that simply I’m interested in?
Indeed in case of an emergency I already know what I’ll use. Primary weapon: definitely a shotgun for close combat. Action will be insanely mixed with adrenaline, fear and the need of completing goals – which in the case of a “potential” zombie apocalypse (pay attention to potential – because even in the Bible – Matthews wrote “The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs…“) is comprised in the act of survival.
A secondary weapon might come in handy when large groups of these “enemies” captured you or endangered your life til a critical point. A pistol should do the trick – but also some far-ranged weapon could prove to be of assistance. Speaking about a melee weapon – chainsaw looks amazing (especially if you are familiar with the latest REC movie – if not you should watch it) but chainsaw is heavy. A bat could free your way easily – but in this case I’d choose the machete. Since the times I was playing Manhunt and executing gang members – got interested in this weapon.
If gadgets we are talking about then – always have a source of light with you. Lighter, flashlight, matches – anything is most welcomed. The last part is somewhat irrelevant – because in any zombie apocalypse there’s a fuel crisis so – your car will stop in the middle of nowhere. If you want to survive then explore the rural or urban zones around you and find perfect spots for hiding and ambushing.
There is no actual reason why I wrote this post. I guess I let the child in me to have some morbid fun. And since I permitted him to do so – now he asks for more. I guess I’ll watch some episodes from Highschool of the Dead in order to please him.
