Why Zombies Eat Brains

I’ve always thought this was a particularly creepy zombie scene. I remember it was being one of the spookiest. It’s a combination of factors, I think; the fact that the half-zombie is speaking, what she’s saying, the nice creepy music, and the fact that the characters in the scene clearly recognize just how creepy it is.

While this explanation may not explain it for all zombie media – particularly considering that we’ve moved largely away from brain eating zombies and toward more of a flesh-eating, cannibalistic sort of zombie who will eat any human flesh – it’s definitely a great scene in this series.

“The pain…of being dead!”

What do you think? Do you like this explanation, or does another movie explain it better for you?
