Top 6 Zombie Movies that Break Zombie Rules
5) [REC] 2
Again, similar to 28 Days Later..., this film really only sticks to the idea of bodily fluids being the transmission of the infection. The reason this movie needs to be represented and given some credit is because it directly connects the infection with the religious element that most movies only hint at. Zombies almost always show up as some science experiment gone wrong, and only randomly will we see a religious fanatic saying it's punishment for our sins, but [REC] 2 had no qualms about blaming not just the progression of science but also the existence of demons that can travel from one body to another with the help of some spit.
The title alone gives away the fact that this isn't a traditional zombie movie, but the appearance of monstrous creatures whose main goal seems to be to bite their victims to create more demons, thus leading to cities being overrun with these monsters, definitely sounds familiar to what happens in most zombies movies. The victims that are trapped in a movie theater with no hope, no understanding of what's happening, and the paranoia that causes them to turn on one another is just about as "zombie" as you can get.
