Zombies don’t run and their diet isn’t restricted to brains. Ask one and their reply will be ‘ughn, urrrr arrnnn’. Roughly translated as: ‘No, it’s thanks to Dan O’Bannon’s rather enjoyable 1985 romp Return of the Living Dead, later mimicked by The Simpsons in a Halloween special, that everyone thinks we sprint and scream ‘braaaaaiiiins’. It’s untrue and frankly a stereotype we’re fighting against; it’s just another form of racism’. And with those wise words I dusted off the old 16-bit console, blew on the cartridge and got set up for a night of cooperative carnage.
