I saw the original Night of the living Dead when I was in high school. Scary Stuff. Since then, on the monster scale...Zombie's are at the top of the list. Right after demons that possess people...they are number 1. I still have never seen The Exorcist. Never will.
Then I watched Shaun of the Dead with Jeff a few years ago, (I totally recommend this movie if you havn't seen it) and my perceptions of Zombies became a little more humorous.
First of all, because they move really slow. As long as you are not overpowered by too many, they are pretty wussy. In fact, according the the Zombie Survival Guide, all you need to do to survive the Zombie Apocalypse is go to a second story house and knock out the stairs. They can't climb. They will just wander around on the first floor looking for stairs. They can't problem solve...they aren't going to stack up furniture or go and find a ladder. You just have to wait them out. (Unless you run into those Zombie Jumping Doberman Pinchers in Resident Evil, you should be just fine...)
