If any of you out there who happen to be reading this are anything like me you will probably enjoy a good old zombie apocalypse movie. While I enjoy pretty much all kinds of zombie apocalypse movie there is something that does bother me about movies in this genre and that is how the creators of these flicks seldom take in to consideration some pretty obvious things about the survivors. Things like food and water always seem to very conveniently show up as do things like the latest fashion in clothes but what about those other things that every zombie apocalypse movie just seems to brush under the carpet?
Here we look at 4 of the Most Obvious Things Zombie Movies Always Forget.
One thing that zombie apocalypse movies has taught us is that if you are lucky enough to survive the initial outbreak then you will probably find yourself living with a small group of fellow survivors. After all there is definitely a safety in numbers feeling about living in a zombie apocalypse. While living among a small group of survivors is all well and good what people fail to consider is that during and after a zombie apocalypse there is going to be a real shortage of things such as toothpaste. This means that sooner or later you are going to have a lot of people walking around with pretty bad breath. Sure, you could keep your distance from your fellow survivor but have you ever noticed that there are always at least two consenting adults who turn things a little romantic? That kiss may well look passionate on film but the bad breath problem is probably quite the opposite.
As I have just pointed out, if you happen to survive the initial outbreak of a zombie apocalypse then there is every chance you will find yourself living with other survivors and some of those survivors will have romantic engagements. We see this in pretty much each and every zombie apocalypse movie that has ever been made. Have you noticed that these movies never ever seem to take into consideration a small thing called birth control? Amazingly during a zombie apocalypse STD’s and the fact a woman can find herself pregnant seem to become something that only happens in the pre-apocalypse world. The moral of this story is that if you really want to have unprotected sex without consequences then wait until you are living in a zombie apocalypse.
In today’s modern world there are plenty of people who require some kind of medication to live a happy and normal life. People such as diabetics who need insulin and people who suffer from asthma who require a salbutamol inhaler are going to struggle to find such medication in a zombie apocalypse but zombie movies never seem to acknowledge this and people amazingly seem to always be in perfect health. Just think that 1 in 400 people have diabetes so there is a huge chance there will be someone in the surviving group of humans who will need insulin.
Let us be honest. Human beings stink. Sure they smell pretty good when they are all bathed and clean but give it a couple of days and they really do stink. Check out as many zombie apocalypse movies as you want and I bet you never find anyone going out on a mission to find a good supply of soap or deodorant. Just imagine how bad all of those survivors must smell.
