Zombie Cliche Lookout: Over, Around, or Through
One of the tough things about dealing with zombies is that what they lack for speed, they more than make up for in dedication (I know that’s not really an accurate descriptor, but stick with me here). Sure, you might be able to outrun any number of zombies for a while, but sooner or later, you’re going to get tired and need a rest. You rest, but those zeds just keep on coming. Luckily, they aren’t terribly smart, so if you get out of sight and vary your course, you might just lose them. But if they see where you went, you’re in for a lot of trouble.
Let’s say you flee to an abandoned barn to rest up for a little while. Those couple of zombies you outran before? The catch up during your nap. And, because zombies tend to follow each other because that behavior often leads to a meal, more zeds have joined them. By the time you awaken, somewhat refreshed, your temporary shelter has been besieged.

Vicky isn’t really doing much to help keep her children calm and in control. If she wants to keep them safe, she needs to settle down and set a good example for them.
Discussion Question: Overpowered Characters
Another from BrickVoid: What kinds of overpowered characters have you seen in movies that you think could’ve been done better, or toned down? For instance, Superman vs. zombies would be a guaranteed win for him, he’s smarter and faster than any of them, and probably a lot tougher to chew on, too! And don’t think Kryptonite would slow him down, either, he seems really good at dealing with that particular weakness, too!
It’d be a bonus if it has to do with zombie movies or novels you’ve seen or read, although, if you’ve got a favorite pet peeve, let’s hear about that, too!
