Screw the typical slow stupid zombies.

Make a movie with zombies that are just as intelligent and agile as normal people.

Start with one "boss" zombie that gets infected from something in a forest/creek/something, then after he turns he intelligently plots catching his victims, feeding off them, and turning them to fight for him.

Couple of characters get killed, they kill a couple of zombies, final fight with main character vs main zombie, zombie dies, credits, final scene at the end where some random person goes to the same place the boss zombie got infected and he gets infected too, opening up for a sequel.



Or the other option is making a zombie porno.
Have the zombies needing to feed off the people, and anti-zombies that can turn zombies human again by fucking them.
Just make sure there are no guy zombies, and no zombies under the age of 18.

Meh, the only good zombie movies these days are ones that stray from the norm.

People will recommend and talk about movies that stray from the norm.
"You should check out the movie ___________. Its a budget zombie movie, but the zombies ________________. Its an awesome idea."

Where as if its just another typical zombie movie, then people will treat it like that.
"How was the movie __________?"
"Meh, just another typical budget zombie movie."

although i must agree with you. Max Brooks has written what could be called a zombie bible.

I own copies in print and on audio CD.

On the topic of Max Brooks, he brings up an interesting idea in the Zombie Survival Guide. Why do you need to have the zombies? Focus on the people living in some secluded spot to escape them. Have them fight a couple every once in a while, but focus mostly on how it is to survive the Zombie Apocalypse without the zombies.

Of course the above example would work best with slow zombies, and a serious rather than comedic tone.

World War Z on audio was amazing. A classic, apocalyptic horror piece.

Which isn't the angle I'm going for.

Here's a scene.

Protagonists are in the living room talking when one of their mates who left the room a few minutes earlier starts to groan (rather like a zombie).

They grab their weapons and burst into the bathroom to kill the infected.

He's sat on the toilet straining out a huge shit groaning....

I reckon it'd be funnier if they burst into the room; Smacked their mate on the head (With sed blunt objects) ...

THEN realise he's doing a shit.

Like:

(They hear groaning noises)

Guy1: Omg, it's in the bathroom!!@!

Guy2: *Grabs Baseball bat and bursts into the bathroom, looks in and in his panic flails his bat at the 'Zombie'*

Guy3: Ow dude! Ahhhhahaaa :'( What the hell

Stoner: Dude.. that was arrrsomeee...

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