Already been made. They called it 'Zombieland'


Speaking of, that's another question...more dramatic, like 'Night of the Living Dead' and such, or more comedic, like 'Zombieland' or 'Shaun of the Dead'?

Well, me and my mates are always like; Omg, if 5 zombies walked out, what would you do!? I'd follow to say like; I'd get a spade and KO them all. etc.

You could use that; Have some geeks talking like that; and when the zombie virus turns up; you could have them being little pussies, and learning how to take them out.

Taught by some hench guy who they know

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

Thats actually a really funny idea.

3 Nerds live in a flat playing video games talking about killing zombies. outside an actual zombie invasion is happening, you can see people running and getting ripped apart out the window behind them. They have headsets on though so they don't see it all going off. They have one female friend in the clan who lives across town. She doesn't have a headset...

2 days later they finally realise whats happening meet up and plan to rescue the girl from across town.

Zombie shenanigans on the way there, usual shit.

When they get there they find out she's really a bloke. Then get eaten... ok needs work.

Could be a tragic but hysterically funny zombie apocalypse movie about a suburban 10-12 year old sister and brother or neighborhood friends ala Chloe Moretz's character, Mindy Macready, in Kick Ass. They could have a competitive martial arts history which is not impossible due to all the interest today in martial arts as an extracurricular activity.

It could start out with them having to kill their older siblings and parents. You could make it light and absolutely gory. From there, they could have to make it to safety at a friends home, relatives, or whatever non-zombie safe house. Along the way they might have to kill zombified strangers, school bullies, school acquaintances, or what not. People who might have been introduced earlier in the movie but are now zombies.

It's not totally original but it could work.

lol yeah, but thats a funny twist. MMO rule number 1?

"Male until proven female".

Zombieland was shit by the way. Can't even remember much of it, I think it was over hyped bollocks.

i like jez's idea, except maybe have a stoner thrown in along the way, they make any movie more fun.
and maybe have them actually take stock of ammo rather than,
zombie apocalypse i know ill use over two hundred bullets and never be seen reloading.

Lol funny bit; Zombie walking towards one of the geeks, Geek runs out of ammo, zombie continues walking at like 1mph... The geek can't reload like.

"AHhh shit! where does this thing go?!@!?"

Zombie walking... slowly..

Geek begins to panic, zombie just about to get there - The stoner steps up, takes the gun, reloads it like epicly fast, cocks it and headshot in like 2seconds flat.

"That was trippy man..."
