The Late Lamented Roger Ebert On Zombies

“What I don’t understand is why zombies are so graceless. They walk with the lurching shuffle of a drunk trying to skate through urped Slurpees to the men’s room.”

–Roger Ebert, in his review of “Resident Evil”

Believe me, one sympathizes with Ebert. Honestly, it’s a wonder we’re supposed to regard those things as a threat, they’re so permanently slow and clumsy! (But then, a lot of the “classic” movie monsters did that…and the victims were basically just victims of their own frozen feet as they stood there and screamed rather than do the smart thing and run–or at least just walk–away.)
