TOP 10 ZOMBIE MOVIE WEAPONS COUNTDOWN #10

4baf57ce68Last year we counted down our favorite top 10 weapons used against zombies in movies.  This year we are going to make it even more interactive, because we want you to join in!

Do you have a favorite unusual weapon used against the undead in movies?  Tell us about it in the comments below, and we’ll cover some of the best ones in up-coming articles.  Remember, creativity counts!

Zombie movies often force their protagonists to come up with unique methods to survive. When placed in sudden, imminent danger, people will do just about anything to survive.  With that in mind, we thought we’d celebrate the unconventional, and sometimes hilarious, weapons our heroes have used against the living dead.

Starting at #10…

10. Banjo and Baseball Bat — Zombieland (2009) & The Return of the Living Dead (1985)

A baseball bat is not a particularly unusual object to use as a weapon, but a banjo certainly is!  Let’s start with the standard baseball bat, though.  Return of the Living Dead features, among other things, a rubbery, slimy, oozing zombie lovingly called the “Tar Man” by fans, who gets his block knocked literally off by a baseball bat wielding Clu Galliger.  It’s that scene and the destruction of one of our favorite zombies that gets our list started.

“Iiiiit’s OUTTA HERE!!”

In Zombieland, Twinkie-loving Tallahassee belts one out of the park with both a banjo AND a baseball bat. It’s relatively easy pickings (pun intended) as it is a supermarket full of really fat zombies.  The “fat” connection is not lost on us…

“Remember Rule #1 — Cardio.”

  1. Flight of the living dead – umbrella, right after it opened. Very nice death.

  2. Also from Zombieland, the Kill of the Week which went to Sister Cynthia Knickerbocker for dropping a piano on one.

  3. The original Dawn of the Dead helicopter scalping was pretty darn cool! Of course it is my favorite movie of all time! Diary of the dead acid eating through the head was pretty ingenuitive as well.

  4. I would fly an airplane, or helicopter and slice through the heads with the propeller or rotor blades (depending on the aircraft I was currently flying)

  5. Something long enough to keep a distance between me and a flesh eater, but also able to stand up to the rigors of the constant abuse the things gonna have to endure. And I’m talking brute force, because in reality, bullets will be hard to come by unless you have a nice stock pile. Their also expensive. You also want to penetrate the skull as quickly as possible. I’d fashion a walking stick out of some extremely hard and durable wood and have a long machete or tomahawk to finish the job after clobbering it with the walking stick. One about 5′ tall sharpened at the bottom for added piercing power. Carve narley skulls into it for the coolness factor.

  6. It is completely unrealistic, and could not possibly work but I loved the scene in Brain Dead ( aka. Dead Alive ) when Lionel Cosgrove takes on a house full of Zombies using a Lawn Mower resulting in the goriest scene in movie history.

    Parties over!

  7. Also from Zombieland, my choice is the falling piano used by the nun. Unfortunately, it’s a 1 use weapon and hard to keep replacing!

  8. Mine would be a baseball bat with nails coming out of the top. Guaranteed bloodshed and effective too.

    • I don’t find this an effective melee weapon because the nails would cause the bat to stick to the zombie, limiting a possible 2nd or 3rd strike.

      Remember: Double Tap

    • Also bloodshed can result in infection through the blood splattering on the eyes, mouth, open wounds or broken skin. But if there’s no other way out or no chance of survival have at it!
