Ok guys I've been working on a short film, and one of the characters is a zombie.
I just wanted to know what y'all think a scary zombie should act and look like.

Erm...it's your film.

This. And zombies aren't scary try something original and be a clever writer.

Zombies aren't scary, what about a giant zombie-slug hybrid that moves underground and has some kind of acid spit?


Oh, and it also flies, that should do the trick.

Like the ones in that movie.


As long as you don't make them slow and stupid you should be fine. Nobody is scared of a zombie you can just walk away from.


28 Days Later is not a zombie film.

28 Days Later is about living people infected with a virus.

They're not the risen dead.

Zombies are the risen dead.

Shut up. Most people would be fine with considering them zombies. Point is, that's how his zombies should act.

Exactly, don't try to get all pedantic about what makes a zombie when he just asked how they act, 28 days later "virus infected humans" are great examples of zombies.

Up, shut it.

The 'zombies' portrayed in 28 days later and Left 4 Dead are far scarier that 'normal zombies' because they actually pose a threat, everyone knows that only a retard can die to a normal zombie because they're so slow and stupid.

Plus they're fictional creatures, how can you dictate what they should and shouldn't behave like?

TS - Zombies are so over-done lately, try something else? And only one of the characters is a zombie? Plus you haven't said what kind of film, if it was a comedy the slow stupid type is better, thriller the fast scary type.

Zombies havent been scary since they were put into movies. Try a slenderman type character. The Grey Man of Ben Macdhui scares the crap out of me, and there is barely any lore on him which just adds to his mystique.
...In my opinion.

It is a mixture of comedy/thriller it is being shot at a summer camp. It isnt supposed to be that great of a movie. Its more for fun. However we want the zombie to scare the crap out of people. the other characters are kind of random. We have a pair of twins(well not really), a slow moving killer(with a baseball bat!) and a redneck(not sure if he is a good or bad guy). We had a gorilla beast thing but the guy had to go to venezuela for a while.

Make a really nice guy, who doesn't really like the taste of human flesh and is a bit exasperated by people running away from him and the army chasing him thinking he's a mindless creature.

Umm... How is a zombie gonna have any particular 'character' to speak of? Only thing you can really work with is the physical presence, try and show what they used to be before Brown-Fan-time (Although I do seem to be taking the arty angle, so feel free to ignore that). And as for scary zombie, just do a google picture search, for crap's sake, man

Maybe we should reinvent zombies, to make them scary once more.

Remember the early trailers for Resident Evil 5?... they need to be that fast. But try and make him look something like Mr. X or Nemesis.

Scary thing is...just reading the wikipedia page on it sent shivers down my spine.

That kind of thing scares me far more than any zombie. The trick to fear, is that there has to be no clear escape, zombies you could just kill, ghosts and stuff you can't.

We have multiple serial killers. It is being shot documentary style (think quarantine).
Also the zombie itself doesnt HAVE to be scary(although we would prefer it that way). It has to scare the crap out of people. I want to know if y'all have any ideas on how to accomplish this. For example having the zombie come crawling out of a ventilation system and grabbing the main character.
#38
i'd say focus on the noise they make, make them as inhuman as possible.

Have the zombie still be all human and shit and constantly struggling with the urge to kill. Like a herion addict.

Walked into a room with a blood soaked man pacing up and down ripping at his own hair would be scary. Screaming at himself..The monster has to always outweigh the human, though.
