When zombies start to take control of the world, they turn into malevolent versions of their former selves with any previous physical combat skills enhanced to almost superhuman level, making eradication near impossible. A squad of eight Special Forces soldiers are assigned a suicide mission to rescue a scientist from a city ruled by the undead.
WHEN THE ZOMBIES COME is a documentary that’s making its debut at Sundance, and also Youtube, apparently. It follows a handful of hardware store employees who are also hardcore fans of The Walking Dead. I’m a big fan too, so I can understand the love for TWD, but these people put the fan in fanatic. The film centers around their alarmingly detailed plans for surviving a zombie apocalypse. It’s obvious they put a lot of thought into it, even though I think they’ll need to work on the details a little bit — good luck surviving with “no bitches,” as they put it.
They’ve done a good job of laying out their plan; the old folk home, which will inevitably be overrun, will be used for target practice. The Quick Trip and Kroger’s will supply their taquito and frozen food reserves, and they’ve even thought of how they’ll deal with injuries, saying “if a zombie pipe goes wrong and one of us starts bleeding,” they’ll make a trip to the local CVS. You owe it to yourself to watch it. You can do so after the break.
If you have any kind of active fantasy life, you’ve got at least a vague idea of what you’re going to do when society turns into zombies. Maybe you’ve picked a favorite weapon or a defendable location. People argue about the best zombie survival plans like it’s a religion, and it sort of is, because unless something extremely unlikely happens, we will have wasted billions of hours on pointless speculation and planning.
This is not an article to debunk survival methods. I’ve read The Zombie Survival Guide, and if you like your chances of looting a karate shop and cutting down a horde of corpses with a 15-pound monk’s spade, I’m happy that your stupidity will finally yield a spectacular death. After all, we’re talking about a make-believe world, so you might as well be Jackie Chan in it. And Jackie, this article is here to make sure you have the greatest post-apocalypse you can have. That doesn’t necessarily mean survival. We’re not here to simply scrape by the zombie apocalypse — we’re here to kick it in the ass. It’s why the American language contains the word “awesomest” and not the word “alivest.”

“Ramona (Taryn Manning), Billy (Eddie Steeples) and Kevin (Gerald Webb) have just come down from a hideaway in the mountains months after a zombie apocalypse.
