h the release of Halo: Reach this week, fans of the epic game series are eager and anxious. Those who have played the games are familiar with Master Chief’s own version of the undead - the Flood! But the question has been thrown out and it begs to be answered again! Are the Flood zombies or not?
The Flood can reanimate the dead - but they are a collective consciousness not the mindless husks of zombies.
The Flood forms are extremely resistant to injury - but head shots don’t mean a thing.
The Flood are no longer the people they were in life - but they do maintain some level of consciousness within a warped mind.
“Paramount just renewed the option for ‘World War Z’, for half the time and twice the money, so that might signal interest. We still got our director, Marc Forster, who’s raring to go.”—Max Brooks (author of World War Z) in an interview with FEARNet.
