Why is the "apocalypse" never shown in zombie movies?

I don't think there's a single movie that shows the outbreak happening and the collapse of society. Why is everything post-apocalyptic?

    Because showing the outbreak and collapse of society is expensive. Much easier to just show the survivors screwing around in some safe heaven in the middle of nowhere and have deep and especially cheap conservations about where they were when SHTF

      This. Also why most movies that show the outbreak/downfall and chaos of society only show it for like the first 20-30mins.

          Thanks for these, although I think I Am A Hero is on a different level from the other suggestions (haven't read Dead Days).

          A few more suggestions (vaguely) in the same genre:
          Cradle of Monsters
          Infection
          Cage of Eden (no zombies)
          Survive Romance
          Hour of the Zombie
          Sweet home

          None of these are very good though, decent at best.

          Do you know how much fuel a tank takes to run? How much training is needed to crew one, and how much maintenance is needed to keep it running? If the zombie causing disease is spread by air then tanks are useless hunks of metal.

            i'm waiting for you to explain how a single tank can be defeated by practically any number of zombies
            all of your criticisms can equally be levied against conventional warfare and yet we still use tanks and tanks are known to be highly useful in war
            an armed soldier is much much more deadly than a zombie
            >If the zombie causing disease is spread by air
            which amounts to what exactly?
            corpses turn into zombies?
            just give everyone a heartbeat sensor and when they flatline have an alarm sound and swat go deal with them
            >then tanks are useless hunks of metal.
            not at all because you would still have a perimeter on society and supposing some giant horde of zombies came shambling somehow it would be very useful

            M1 Abrams use turbine engines that guzzle fuel and need a lot of maintenance. Their main guns are designed for killing tanks, not zombies. You think fifty tanks could deal with, say, a million zombies in an urban outbreak? Their combined machine guns carry less than 20,000 rounds in a full loadout. And then you have to leave the tank to refuel and rearm.

            Look at the fact that the Ukraine war has drained countries like France and Germany of small arms ammo and cost billions in material support from the US. Shit costs, and as society breaks down, machines stop working and supplies don't get where they need to be.

            >so true someone tell the army to go back to using swords!
            >oh wait swords break too i guess we better just use martial arts
            Grow up, kid.

            so what you are saying is we don't even need tanks all you need is a big mad max truck to run over lots of zombies?
            >Look at the fact that the Ukraine war has drained countries like France and Germany of small arms ammo
            yes and unlike in a zombie apocalypse we don't have a war economy
            a lot more ammo was used in ww2 but they also made a lot less consumer junk
            >You think fifty tanks could deal with, say, a million zombies in an urban outbreak?
            yes very very easily because no amount of zombies could actually destroy a tank the only thing they could do is pile so many corpses on it after it has ran out of fuel that the crew can't even open the door anymore and so slowly starve to death
            >And then you have to leave the tank to refuel and rearm.
            how exactly do you think they do this in war?
            do you think the crew climb out and start drilling for oil?
            the tanks can run away, go back to a safe place, and refuel there
            >b-but what if they run out on the way???

              No, I'm saying that your original claim that a classic style slow-zombie apocalypse is easily dealt with is asinine.

              >yes and unlike in a zombie apocalypse we don't have a war economy
              Pivoting to a 'war economy' is not an overnight process.
              Hell look at the supply chain issues we had pivoting to a COVID economy.
              And at the end of the day you don't have that long to adjust when every single level of your economy starts falling apart within a month.

              That doesn't sound like 'very very easily' to me.
              Trust me when I say that having less than 4000 rounds per machine gun is not as much as it sounds.

              This, and tanks are just some of the toys available to a modern military. While a point could be made about Zombies swarming and immobilizing a tank, the same can't be said for airborne stuff, against which zombies have no counter whatsoever. But by far the easiest and cheapest way to deal with a horde would be with artillery. Zombies group together tightly and never take cover, basically fish in a barrel.

              The main gun wouldn't be as useless as you claim. Just use these things:

              There would be if you handle things correctly. "No rear echelon" means that it's already the post-apocalypse, we're talking about containing an outbreak here.

                Tanks wouldn't even need to use guns tbh, ever seen a tank punch through a wall or crush a car like tinfoil? No amount of zombie piles would stop a tank because there are not a big flesh mass but many many bodies and arms and legs etc. which would just get mashed.
                You wouldn't even need a tank, any vehicle lets you massively outmanouver zombies and shoot them at will, before retreating again.
                Zombie tv should be based on a single outbreak where an entire city is quarantined and follow the living trapped inside trying to survive the zombies.
                I would imagine the relatvies of zombies would pressure the government to find a cure rather than just mowing them all down once an outbreak area is contained, that gives you a reason for why the military hasn't yeeted them all.

              >i'm waiting for you to explain how a single tank can be defeated by practically any number of zombies

              It can't, however what he's saying is that there's only so much a tank could do before becoming inoperable. Sure, you would take out hundreds with creative shelling and raking as well as simply squash many hundreds more. Rearming and refueling plus maintenance would be a challenge.

              Most of the hesitation with anything like this actually happening would be the human factors. Are these people just sick, what's going on, do we really need to destroy them. Goes back to the psych evals that the people manning silo launchers go through, when ordered to will they actually flip the switch?

              I like how this conundrum is represented in enders game, i know people seem to hate the movie over the book, it's a great representation of this problem. Take kids, turn it into a computer game to prepare for the real thing only to find out it was real all along.

              One zombie crawls onto tank, holds on to side until crewman gets out for one of the dozens of things tank crewmen need to do outside the tank every day, kills him, crawls into rank, kills rest of crew. That’s how a single zombie kills a single tank.

          M1 Abrams use turbine engines that guzzle fuel and need a lot of maintenance. Their main guns are designed for killing tanks, not zombies. You think fifty tanks could deal with, say, a million zombies in an urban outbreak? Their combined machine guns carry less than 20,000 rounds in a full loadout. And then you have to leave the tank to refuel and rearm.

          Look at the fact that the Ukraine war has drained countries like France and Germany of small arms ammo and cost billions in material support from the US. Shit costs, and as society breaks down, machines stop working and supplies don't get where they need to be.

            Of course they won't give the tanks 50 APFSDS shells. That's without factoring in that they can just run them over indefinitely
            In addition a single M30A1 rocket from a HIMARS or M270 contains 180,000 tungsten ball bearings. So over a million in a six rocket salvo. A zombie horde across open fields could be minced from 50 miles away

      It really depends on the initial infection vector and lethality. In something like Shaun of the Dead it starts with a flu, and something like that if it ended up killing 20% of people infected that would be enough. You wouldn't be able to mobilize enough police or medical personnel to stop it. The military MIGHT be ok in some places depending on if they also got sick from some kind of airborne infection, but they would only be able to assert dominance in their bases.

      covid already proved that the infrastructure to deal with human frailties only functions when at any given day only a minority requires assistance. over congestion of emergencies quickly max out a hospital's ability to care for victims. professional burn out happens within months if medical staff are also susceptible. it took lockdowns just stem the spread. no one was happy. some completely disregarded the "reality" or the narrative being told to them, because gov doesnt really hold transparency in high regard. took roughly 2 years to 'settle'.

      the 2020 riots proved given the abundant over politicization of "causes" that the gov will let cities burn, destruction run rampant, murderers go free, for a rather extended period of time before 'peace,' and law are re established if it serves an agenda. can you crush a riot? yes. does it happen often in the west? no. after all the people need to believe they have a voice.

      people acted stupid during the pandemic.
      people acted stupid during the riots.

      both overlapped but the height of effect for each happened separately.

      extrapolate each's greatest surge and then stack them on top of each other. up the R0 of the infection. dial public hysteria to 11. set human death = false. here's your apocalypse.

              you have no evidence to rely on whereas anyone can combine covid and BLM riots as framework for a deadlier zombie situation and see how incompetent the government is. you would see mass defections in the military and the nurses wouldn't go to work if all the hospital patients were trying to eat them. red mid states would hunker down and ride it out and not rally their tanks to go save los angeles lmao enjoy your 13 million latino zombies or whatever LA has. can't even keep people from shitting on the streets let alone eating each other.

                No one has any evidence to rely upon. Covid is a cold, of course people weren't taking a cold seriously. It is in no way comparable or justifiably used as a proxy for a hypothetical zombie disease. You're an idiot, stop typing, hastily have a nice day.

                modern zombie movies are almost always based around the flu, which is basically just a beefy cold

                [...]

                no its not you stupid fag outbreak is about people getting infected one at a time society breaking down, he passes out drunk and wakes up to almost everyone already dead and its a post apocalyptic survival movie. him falling asleep and waking up like that is a spoof on zombie movie characters going into a coma while the world burns.

                no survivors dying one at a time isn't the same as the whole society being killed one at a time, its different stories. you could do an entire outbreak tv show and only see one zombie in the season finale compared to survival shows where zombies are everywhere. the dawn of the dead mall movie intro where she flees her house is outbreak the shit months later when they are shooting zombies on the roof is survival.

      Not if 99.9% of people on the planet are infected from the beginning. That would bring about a societal collapse by default simply by virtue of people being spread too thin to operate most military equipment such as tanks and helicopters efficiently. It's just that patient zero stuff that's rather unbelievable.

    covid already proved that the infrastructure to deal with human frailties only functions when at any given day only a minority requires assistance. over congestion of emergencies quickly max out a hospital's ability to care for victims. professional burn out happens within months if medical staff are also susceptible. it took lockdowns just stem the spread. no one was happy. some completely disregarded the "reality" or the narrative being told to them, because gov doesnt really hold transparency in high regard. took roughly 2 years to 'settle'.

    the 2020 riots proved given the abundant over politicization of "causes" that the gov will let cities burn, destruction run rampant, murderers go free, for a rather extended period of time before 'peace,' and law are re established if it serves an agenda. can you crush a riot? yes. does it happen often in the west? no. after all the people need to believe they have a voice.

    people acted stupid during the pandemic.
    people acted stupid during the riots.

    both overlapped but the height of effect for each happened separately.

    extrapolate each's greatest surge and then stack them on top of each other. up the R0 of the infection. dial public hysteria to 11. set human death = false. here's your apocalypse.

        it's def obvious when mapped. happening all at once with infectious among both rioters and law enforcement. people collapsing, arriving at triage, being misdiagnosed, rising up, attacking, first gun shot will cause panic, then both armed rioters and armed police will start firing all over the place. more dead, more confusion.

        the anons earlier are right. from a production stand point it's expensive to shoot.

      one of the memory holed stories of the 2020 riots was the hispanic response in Chicago. they were basically attacking any black person who ventured into their neighborhoods on sight. shooting at cars with black people. even in Philly, blacks there were kicking out white "allies" who were only there to burn things down.

      the second vigilantism began to rise the riots were quickly shut down. people will only tolerate lawlessness for so long. vigilantism is a natural response to lawlessness.

      Not really, the best part is the confusion when it first starts, not understanding why they can't be stopped, the living trying to escape to some sort of safety so they can come up with a plan. Once they know what they're dealing with and can relatively easily contain the zombies and combat them, it's not always as interesting. And then they usually have to make it about other humans fucking things up, whether it be an insider who is upset or an outside group of raiders

    For the anons looking for a "realistic" depiction of a zombie apocalypse, my fav is from the first book in this trilogy by a Spanish author.

    It's from the limited perspective of a guy holed up in his home for unrelated reasons watching it unfold on the tv and online over a few weeks, but it really captures the feel of it all going to shit. The "trick" is that the virus has a long incubation phase during which it's still extremely contagious so that's how it gets to spread widely enough to overwhelm humans with the first waves of undead.

    The first book is pretty kino, and the other two get pretty schlocky but in an enjoyable way. Also the proteagonist gets a barely legal gf so I'm sure anons will like it.

    I just checked and it has an English translation so go legally acquire it. Cheers.

            Soldiers are trained for discipline, they're not going to shit their pants and run because another soldier starts freaking out. They're gonna shoot that zombie moron and then get back to shooting other zombies. Motherfuckers deal with IEDs in the desert that can blow their arms and legs off, a zombie isn't scarier than that.

                Most soldiers in most wars keep their shit together and do their jobs, otherwise wars wouldn't happen, they'd just be big masses of cowardly dudes running away. If soldiers are tough enough to stay disciplined in wars against other intelligent humans, they're tough enough to stay at least that disciplined in wars against a bunch of stupid fucking zombies.

Even if you don't hit the right part of the zombie's brain, what does it matter when his arms and legs are blown off and he's now an undying torso rolling around on the ground?

                And yet there are plenty who don't keep it together and flip their shit. Even in the old "good wars" you hear stories of soldiers fucking losing it and having to be killed by their compatriots to get them to shut the fuck up which absolutely devastates their peers and lowers combat effectiveness.

                The difference here is that this outbreak is completely unknown and is happening worldwide. Suddenly their family, friends, everything is in peril, no one knows what's going on, and it's getting worse. Many of the regular joes are just 18-20 year olds, what's keeping them from saying 'fuck it, I'm out. I'm going to protect my loved ones'? Not like they're getting a paycheck anymore or there's anything to do with it.

      You don't need to shoot them. Bombs, artillery and rockets would do the job easily.

      You can clearly see the pressure waves from the thermobaric rockets going off. Each of those pressure waves would demolish any zombies in the blast radius.

      If you want overkill you could just go full Operation Linebacker and napalm entire grid squares.

      Ya don't normally do gun runs with AC-130s, especially against a target that is not threat against the aircraft, e.g. zombies in a stadium. You just orbit and blow the crap out of everything.

      They do something like this in the later stages of book-WWZ. The military had to make a system to manage their supply expenditure vs zombies killed ratio, so certain weapons were shelved. They decided machine guns used too much ammo for not enough dead Z, and instead issued something more like competition rifles with incendiary ammo. The troops went back to line formations and would slowly plink off zeds in the distance trying to make each flaming bullet a headshot which would torch their brain.

        Yonkers is retarded and indicative of an author who cared more about dunking on the Bush regime than researching military tactics. The US highway system was designed specifically to facilitate the evacuation of cities and military mobilization in case of a nuclear war with the soviets. The idea that logistics and running out of ammo would be the failure point of the army is just patently ridiculous. Even if we grant the idea that the brass will actually order the troops to do stupid shit like dig trenches for defilade and position everybody on ground level against a zombie horde, there wouldn't be a scene of the guns clicking dry and apache pilots cutting zombies up with the helicopter blades. One of these threads even had an idea of the firepower collapsing Yonkers bridge and inadvertently sending the zombies downstream to their flank. Then you can have the house infected breaking out, the mass rout, etc

            Even if production stopped there are still billions of rounds stockpiled. The reason wars use up ammo is because millions of bullets are fired at enemies in cover, it's arty and airstrikes that kill people.

          And yet it takes you two hours+ to get out of any metropolitan city center on a good day, let alone when fucking everyone else is trying. You ever drive into a city at the start of a three day weekend and just watch all the retards trying to leave in stop and go traffic a half an hour outside of the city?

          If you're brave enough to hold against other humans shooting at you, bombing and gassing you, you will think some unarmed meatsuits trying to bite you are a fucking joke.

          Of course you're brave enough to hold against other humans shooting at you. They'll eventually slow or stop. They need ammo, they need food, they need sleep, etc. Firefights go through phases of intensity and breaks occur. Masses of zombies don't. They don't stop for anything. They just keep coming.

            I'm saying there might not be a need for a lot of ground warfare. Even if there was, these are undisciplined, mindless bags of meat that literally have to be in melee range and bite you while you're wearing flak jackets and firing automatic weapons. I am literally not afraid. I was laughing in Afghanistan, I would be overjoyed facing zombies.

              They are more disciplined than you could ever hope to be. They don't feel fear. They don't get tired. They don't become disheartened. They don't worry about themselves, their peers, their families or anything. They have only one desire and that is to eat you and they won't stop until they either succeed or die.

                That's always been the dumb part. Their bodies would certainly shut down pretty quickly and these stories need supernatural fantasy reasons why they can essentially keep moving forever even as a skeleton. At least in 28 Days Later they start dying after a while
