Of course words evolve over time. I just don't want it to evolve into whatever the fuck bucketheads think it should be. Like, does it simply mean "raging mindless one" at this point? Cause that would mean that a lot of slower moving zombies would stop being "zombies" in accordance to modern definition. I find that pointless and dumb. I'd rather be grumpy ol grandpa stuck in the past and call the bucketheads out on their shit. And it'd be different if slow moving zombies stopped appearing completely. Then one could argue that the word has "evolved" along with the modern times, but since both fast and slow moving ones are being produced and things like Rage Infected appear as well it is more of a broadening. Question is, where does it stop? I mean, a vampire is more like a zombie than a Rage Infected is. Do we call them zombies? Is it cause they've lost their minds? Does that mean that the lunatics from the comics Crossed or the crazy people from The Crazies are zombies? If vampires aren't zombies because they are intelligent does that mean that the female strippers in Zombie Strippers aren't zombies? Does it mean that the zombies from Revenge Of The Living Dead who can speak and know what they are doing aren't zombies? It's like RPG's. The term becomes so broad at some point that it is meaningless. I like it when things are more easily definable. Whatever, I've digressed enough as it is when it comes to this subject. I guess it'll be ruined just like everything else I care for. Cause why the fuck not. Fuck up everything. Even a term. Ain't enough "RPG" got spread so wide it split in two... (Not bitter at all about zombies being ruined by people who don't got a clue about what makes that setting good in the first place and I'm certainly not bitter that 28 Days Later is listed in List Of Zombie Films on wikipedia. Nah. Not bitter at all...) So on topic again: I can't stand in vampire films how the vampires are such incompetent dunces when it comes to dealing with the protagonists. Oh it is the usual "they are feeling superior and want to just toy with thier little snack before drinking it" but you can't keep pulling the fucking "arrogance"-card every god damn time. Goes back to the whole "villain giving a speech" trope I suppose. Gotta have bad exposition.
