** Ana also tends to snark when she needs to.
-->'''C.J.''': How do you know that [the people in the truck] aren't all fucked up like them?
-->'''Ana''': Well, for one thing, they're driving a truck. ''(they all hear gunshots coming from the truck, offscreen)'' Oh, and shooting guns.

* WhamShot: For viewers used to the shuffling zombies of George Romero's original trilogy - and who avoided the trailers for this film - seeing these zombies ''run'' at full speed might be this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* ItCanThink: It's heavily implied, if not outright confirmed, in one scene as when the zombies are chasing the survivors up the staircase, they stop and try to find a way around Kenneth, who's holding them at gunpoint. They only resume the charge when they find no alternate route.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: The film is actually on the Idealistic end. While it does go to some very dark places, it still leans more towards an idealistic perspective. The survivors are brought together by the disaster - and anyone who betrays the group usually ends up as a victim. The morality of killing a ZombieInfectee is not glossed over and NoOneGetsLeftBehind comes into play - such as in the case of Andy and Nicole. The ending [[spoiler: at least before the credits roll]] is a somewhat positive one.
