The Top Seven Most Awesome Ways to Kill Zombies
These days, the very fabric of society seems tenuous. The global economy is in shambles, wars rage, famine is destroying entire regions, and with the ongoing predictions of the end of days - you know, maybe it's time to take note of these warning signs and prepare for the inevitable zombie apocalypse which will set upon us any day now.

7. The Samurai Sword from Versus
If you're looking for a way to dispose of zombie hordes with a high level of grace and classiness, ditch the crowbar and go straight to the samurai sword.
Sure, blunt force trauma has always been a staple of violent death, but swords are made expressly for the purpose of dispatching one's foes. If they're zombies, even better - that just means they'll move slower so you can do more elaborate spins and such while you chop limbs off.
6. LPs from Shaun of the Dead
Who would've thought old vinyl could work so effectively against the undead? I know, I know, that Dangerhouse LP might be worth $300 because it's been out of print since the '80s, but what's your life worth to you? If it comes down to your very existence or an intact pressing of a rare record, let the shellac fly, I say.
5. Supernatural Guitar Picks from Wild Zero
Guitar Wolf are a band of many trades. Here in Wild Zero, they are defenders of planet Earth. I'm not entirely sure where they got these special guitar picks from (or why they don't use more of them later in the movie) but it really doesn't matter.
What matters here is that Guitar Wolf (the man, not the band) is throwing supernatural guitar picks at zombies which dissolve on contact, while the rest of Guitar Wolf (the band) combs their hair behind him. That's all you really need to know.
4. Molotov from Left 4 Dead
One of the most important rules of thumb in a zombie apocalypse is "When in doubt, kill it with fire." And Valve's Left 4 Dead illustrates this point beautifully.
There's just something incredibly gratifying about setting an entire horde of raging zombies ablaze in one quick flick of the wrist. Just make sure you've created some distance between you and the expected recipient of that bottle of death, 'cuz fire hurts.
