Zack Snyder confirms something many fans have been thinking about since they saw Zeus and the Queen’s offspring — yes, the zombies in “Army of the Dead” have sex.
Although, the director cut out any scene that shows nudity he did not shy away from explicitly describing it. In an interview with Esquire, he said, “well, I believe that some zombie love happened, some sweet zombie lovemaking. I don’t know if it was sweet. It was probably pretty aggressive.”
Snyder further expanded on what he and his team wanted to do with the film.
“My theory is that the zombies in our movie are working toward not needing a human host to procreate their species, if you will. That’s the ultimate evolution. They’re like a better us. I think that’s the fun genre part of it.
“They’re no longer destroying their environment. They’re not fighting with each other. They’re less bad for everybody. They’re less toxic. Unless you cross them, and then, well, it’s not that good,” he said.
This important insight gives “Army of The Dead” a deeper meaning than just being a gun-blazing horror flick. Yet, the director wants viewers to have as much fun as possible while contemplating the philosophy of zombies being better than humans.
Because the creators enjoyed themselves while making the film. Definitely, seeing the zombie baby tested you. That is what the director was aiming for. You may also like to read our recent article Netflix greenlights Army of The Dead prequel — Army of Thieves.
