Randy Harmelink | 2112 comments The Evil Dead is NOT about a zombie apocalypse though. It's about demon possession. Those being possessed don't even have to be dead.

And a chainsaw would NOT make a good long-term weapon in a zombie apocalypse. Not only do they make too much noise, which attracts other zombies, but they are non-sustainable because they require fuel.

PS: I would say Ash Williams is more comparable to Die Hard's John McClane.

"Welcome to the party, pal!"

Ian McClellan | 294 comments "Who is the better horror character?" I thought it would be fun to compare the two characters since Ash has been so beloved in the horror community for so long whereas Daryl has gained such a huge following in such a short amount of time.
When faced with a large group, I'd still take the chainsaw. Also, killing things with chainsaws is just awesome.

Never mind the vs. - I'm voting for a team-up. Make way for awesome.


*Suzy (ereaderuser)* (suzyereaderuser) | 49 comments Randy has a good point about the chainsaw. I would want a crossbow. Arrows can be reused. And a katana. Both also have the added benefit of being quiet. That doesn't mean I wouldn't also have guns. Lots of guns! :)

Cedric Nye (cedricnye) | 86 comments The better horror character? Hmmm. I would choose Ash simply because he is a half-crazed gem that gives good entertainment.

As someone to walk the hard road with, though, I would choose Daryl Dixon.

The matter of Zompoc weaponry is whole other ball of worms. Chainsaws and crossbows are not ideal for the Zombie Apocalypse.

Carl (skeptic_rogue) | 19 comments Don't forget his boomstick!! I have to vote Ash due to his entertainment value. So many great one liners. Daryl is my favorite character on the show though.

Ian McClellan | 294 comments Walk softly and carry a big boomstick!

I would have thought some sort of automatic rifle with a suppressor would be ideal, but I've done some research recently (I own a couple of guns, but I'm not a 'gun guy') and from what I'm seeing, suppressors aren't really as quiet as the movies make them out to be.

Ian McClellan | 294 comments Just ran across this from The Zombie Club on FB. Guess that fixes part of the problem.

Kristin (Blood,Sweat and Books) (goodreadscomhermyoni) | 274 comments Can't I choose both?? I'd definitely want both on my Survival team.

I am not sure it would be possible to have them both on your team. That much awesomeness in one place could possibly rip the very fabric of the space/time continuum, thus destroying the world as we know it.

If you want the most awesome zombie fighting weapon, watch Peter Jackson's Dead Alive (Braindead for non-US markets). Nothing beats a lawnmower strapped to your chest.

Randy Harmelink | 2112 comments How about a Prototype Quadrotor with Machine Gun?
