So there'd be no way to defeat the zombies in Return of the Living Dead given their abilities and the properties of the gas?

So there'd be no way to defeat the zombies in Return of the Living Dead given their abilities and the properties of the gas? Is it automatic apocalypse?

    you can nuke them, but unfortunately the movie doesn't show if it was effective or not

      The movie shows the nukes causing fire and putting trioxin acid rain clouds into the air to raise more dead

    Just gotta cut them up into pieces and then lock them up. Easier said than done

      /thread, much easier said than done. It would entail dismembering millions and then storing them as though they were nuclear waste, covered in concrete, etc. Basically a logistical impossibility.

        Couldn't you use a machine gun to "cut" them up?

        head shots do not work in the film???

        Nope. They are basically people with immortality and the need to eat brains to stop the pain.

          Maybe a few at a time with .30 cals., depends on their numbers and distance. A crowd of a few thousand or more gets extremely complicated, especially since explosives/artillery shouldn't be used to avoid burning them.

      I think acid could be a good idea. Or propaging flesh eating bugs.

        Acid produces vapors. The chemical would probably kill the bacteria.

      Nope. They thought they would because of stories of previous zombie incidents, but when they try it they find it doesn't work.

    The worst thing is that feel constant pain unless they eat some brains, and even then that only eases the pain a little. it's a fate worse than death

      That's probably the most horrifying aspect of the film.

      Why didn’t the zombies figure out a way to determine what exactly in the brains eases their pain and then synthesize a treatment, like a mega-potent “brain fentanyl”, and just use that rather than eating human brains?

        They are crack-heads who need their shot. They just can't stop thinking about brains even if they could in theory do some science shit.

      I thought the implication was they were able to feel the decay & pain even without the trioxin (so once we die we just are in perpetual I have no mouth and I must scream mode), the trioxin just made them animate.

    if they could contain tarman, they could stop the outbreak before it got too big. though by the time the army guy found out about it it was too big to contain so they nuked it

      If nukes don't destroy the chemical compound, then I don't think many things will. If people had time to study the compound's structure then maybe they could find something that neutralizes it or breaks it down or something, but there's no time for that.

      That's not how I saw it, but it's really not specific so ho knows. That would be extra terrible if that were the case.

    You need to launch them into the sun. Although knowing the franchise, doing that would just make the sun a zombie. Or a giant ball of Tarman.

    At the beginning of the movie, when they’re only dealing with one or two or at most a handful of zombies, all they needed to do was lock them in a box again. That’s what happened in the circumstances that lead up to the start of the movie, and it worked fine for a whole fourteen years or whatever and could have continued to work if only a few dumbasses hadn’t made some mistakes.

    If they really insisted on actually destroying the zombies, then dissolving them in acid probably would have worked, they just needed the patience to go get enough acid.

    At the end of the movie when like an entire city is infected, then yeah, I guess they were pretty much fucked.

    Reminder that in countries that use concrete, such scenario wouldn't work; e.g Brazil.
    In Brazil, most houses are surrounded by concrete walls, with eletrical fence, barbed wire or broken glass on top of it, to protect against thieves, plus usually a strong iron gate.
    Zombies wouldn't be able to come inside houses and when someone died, they could be killed and disposed of easily.

    If you managed to stop them early by getting them all to fall in a pit an filling it with concrete, that seems like it would work
    You'd have to immobilize them, any violent solution just risks them continuing to act and eventually spreading more of the neurotoxin

    Best bet would be to give citizens government issued combine harvesters, so they can chop crowds of zombies into pieces which will still be animated but can be gotten rid of afterwards.

    only option would be to chop them up and seal them up in concrete or something. but then its still the equivalent of storing depleted nuclear isotopes underground or whatever they do with nuclear plants
