Hence, when some anomaly happens, they usually blame it on superstitions such as evil spirits and curses from nature. See also: FridgeBrilliance page.

* RemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain: The only known way to kill the zombies/infected in this film.
* TechnicallyLivingZombie: The zombies here are infected with some form of rabies. They behave like the infected seen in ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'' and ''VideoGame/Left4Dead''.
