Zombie Cliché Lookout:
It’s a horror movie staple: when you’re being pursued, don’t look for logic escape routes that might actually save your life down the road, just go up! Few things are more infuriating than seeing the buxom teenage star of the latest slasher flick run upstairs instead of out the door when the killer is chasing her. This of course ensures either a gruesome slaying or some acrobatic antics out a second-story window. In zombie movies this trope tends to work a little better. Since zombies don’t have a great deal of coordination, anything more than a gentle incline or gradual stairway tends to slow or even stop their pursuit. The only problem is whether the heights you’re fleeing to have any other exits, because the zombies on the ground have more than enough patience to wait you out.
