A term often used synonymously with zombie. However, neo-zombies are not deceased and therefore have the ability to run. These are human beings that have been infected with a virus through a bite or some other means. Infection can take seconds, minutes, or even hours. Once infected, the brain retains base facilities, namely gross motor function. In its near-mindless state, it grasps no remains of emotion, personality, or sensation of pain. These creatures have one interest... to eat human flesh.

Although the running zombie first appears in cinema with "Return of the Living Dead" in 1985, the neo-zombie did not appear until 2002 with "28 Days Later" by means of the Rage Virus.

Other films that feature neo-zombies include:
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)
DoomsDay (2008)
Zombieland (2009)
So what do you prefer, the classic Romero zombie or the fast neo-zombie?
