In a recent post, Rafael of Neither Here nor There pointed out that zombies just don’t work, as least not from a “realistic” explanation point of view. There’s too much suspension of disbelief required to buy the virus-infection origin of the zombie. A supernatural origin, on the other hand, would be believable.
Come forth, my undead minions…and get me a latte pronto.
So what do you think? How would you build your zombie? Rabies virus gone mad (because, you know, rabies isn’t mad enough on its own)? A wicked spell that reanimates the dead? Radiation from outer space? Tell us how you’d build the perfect undead creation.
