(CBS News) Zombies for the longest time in film were without a doubt scary, but relegated to the slow shuffle that made everyone feel like they could possibly survive such an outbreak. Then Danny Boyle flipped them on their head and made them truly terrifying to me with his new depiction of zombies in "28 Days Later" that - dramatic pause - could actually run! And now the concept gets pushed even further. Feel the extreme terror of zombie parkour in the slick video above.
So, I'm pretty sure I'd be a "dead man walking" if this twist in zombie mythology became a reality. (Along with zombies themselves, of course.) The fast-moving, jumping and more version of zombies (with music by The Map) was posted by Ronnie Street Stunts (aka Ronnie Shalvis) who writes:
The zombie virus has evolved into a new breed of parkour zombies. No longer do they slumber as the walking dead, they are ferocious and fast, they are the flipping dead.
Yeah, I'd seriously flip out (well, more so...) if I saw "the flipping dead" coming at me with moves like that. Up next, we should take a moment to chill out after the terror above. And by "chill out," I really just mean move from a post-apocalyptic urban area to snow-covered surroundings in a first-person perspective of extreme skiing done by professional skier Candide Thovex from Quicksilver below. (An excellent thrill-ride with less potential for becoming lunch.) Bon appetit!
