I'm so glad we got that one out of the way early.

I was tempted myself TBH ;)

Just to relate this to my burgeoning reputation as a crusty old tweed wearing Middle Englander, serves him right for taking a perfectly good, if little explored Afro-American horror standard and fucking it up.
It's the same thing as a female Dr Who, and fucking Batman changing his nature left right and centre.
Leave it all alone.

Nah, zombies were rubbish 'til George got ahold of them.
Not scary, not dangerous, and a little bit 'see the exotic practices of the superstitious natives!'
George was the business.

Well said.

I'm sorry this chap's snuffed it, but hopefully this means they'll start to forget the boring, generic modern take on zombies and give us some of the creepy old sort again.

My mistake. I thought you'd know who Spike is. Clearly not a Buffy fan :D
