So what are the most annoying zombie cliches? The ones that tend to be overused and unoriginal. Is it when they use some military experiment to explain the plague? When people sit around talking about the things they miss in the old world? Slow movin zombies that somehow teleport to convenient places to jump out and bite people? Or the fact that some group is surviving just to get from point A to B, only to have very thing end at B. I'm sure there are many, but just wanted to see what people were tired of seeing or reading when it comes to Zombies.

At this point in pop culture, zombies are annoying cliches. This comic is one of the few zombie things I pay attention to.

Definately sick of the teleporting slow zombies. Seriously annoying. Land of the dead has this the worst.

Also shotguns being pumped everytime something happens.

This is just a bad action movie cliche period.  It's right up there with dubbing in the sound of a handgun cocking/the slide being racked every time it's pointed at a new target.

As far as zombies cliches go, the refusal to do a confirmatory headshot on a suspected dead zombie, nope, let's walk up to it and see whether or not it's really down for the count.

Well, that does make sense in a way. Ammunition is a finite resource, if a zombie's down you may as well make sure with a melee weapon rather than a bullet.

I watched wolverine origins and there is a scene where they are shooting at wolverine with a helicopter mounted minigun. The only problem is the sound they use is a .50 cal machine gun.

I reckon zombieland did it right. Double tap people!

Your gif won't work.

Anyways, the cliche that Shotguns are the number 1 way of facing the undead, sending a powerful force of unstopabble godlike power in a single shot wiping out multiple zombies. Yeah they're versatile weapons, you can easily use a slug for range or buckshot for close, but it takes time to reload those things, not to mention they're pretty darn loud. The ammo (Assuming you have a 12 gauge) will take up a fair bit of space. I say .22 is the way to go, a box of 500 rounds of .22 is the size of a brick, fairly quiet, no recoil, it wont knock them on their ass, but as long as you make those headshots they should be down and out.

Also, malls. I mean it makes sense, but it always seems to be the malls people go for when looking for shelter.

Oh yes that is the absolute worse for me but that goes for any movie that happens in.

People splitting up where all of them know that they should not. But this goes for every 'horror' movie.

Also the chicks get stuck with the weedy little pistol while the dudes get the chunky machine guns.

Worst yet, The rambo of the group hanging back with the big old machine gun and the mob approach him and hes like yep wall of lead suckers, hit every zombie with a head shot or or cuts them in half while unleashing his spam of .50 cal. Im sorry but if that happened and he is not laying down he might hit 1 or 2 then be looking at the sky.

Also girls in heels running away if it were me and im a dude id flick those bastards off and get my speedy feet happening.
