Why are zombies always killed by the simple head-kill-shot?
Other horror movie monsters always have complicated ways in which to kill them. Zombies.........head shot...boo
well, vamps have loads of ways if dying. including decapitation, whats complicated about chucking holy water over a vamp, or the sign of the cross, stake through the heart, garlic, silver bullet for werewolves, and probably vamps, fire, the more choices, the easier it is.
I must be mistaken because everytime I see a zombie movie, they almost always require 3 shots to anywhere on the body....The head is just the best place. Remember the zombie land rule, "Double Tap"
It's because the zombie infection resides in the brain and keeps the central nervous system from decaying. Once the brain compromised, the infection can no longer keep the CNS from decay, therefore the zombie loses mobility. Technically, I guess it's still a zombie. It just can't move anymore.
You could effectively "kill" a zombie by decapitation, but unless you also compromised the brain, the head would still be able to get you if you got too close.
You could incinerate the zombie, but that takes too long.
You could crush the zombie with a trash compactor or car crusher or 16 ton weight or grand piano or anvil. That would work.
The problem with zombies isn't that they're fast, or hard to kill, or even particularly deadly. It's that they are many and that they are relentless. You'll get tired eventually. Zombies won't.
I think it's mainly because zombies are not all that different physiologically from humans. They don't experience pain, but enough damage to the body renders it immobile. And a shot to the brain works because the brain controls everything else (and as some believe, it may be where the zombie virus mainly resides). If the brain is destroyed, the rest of the body can no longer function. There are a few obscure pieces of zombie fiction where a headshot can't kill them, but in general it's your best bet, especially since (unlike vampires) they really have no weaknesses.
