You haven't seen a whole lot of zombie movies have you? dawn of the dead there was a baby born after the mother turned into a zombie and so the baby was born a zombie. also in that movie at the beginning a little girl was the first zombie they showed. also in The Walking Dead the little girl that was one of the regulars on the show turned into a zombie. there's been others can't name them all
Since babies can't get away, they usually get eaten. Smaller children suffer the same fate I figure, little bit larger ones might get away from being eaten, but turn from the bites
true.....maybe that age group just gets killed off quicker as both humans and zombies. It's an awkward age, they trip, fall, get eaten or head chopped off?
Well, I figure it's because the way people are turned is that they get bitten but survive. That usually means they manage to kill the zombie attacking them but they are just slightly too late.
If you figure a kid, and especially a baby, are going to be much less likely to be able to defend themselves effectively against a zombie, they don't usually manage to get away with just a bite or two that allows them to live but turn. They instead get dismembered and eaten.
Why would a zombie stop at just scratching a baby or little kid? I would think that the zombie would see the kid as hors d'eovres. Kids are sort of the dim sum of the zombie world.
I think there was a zombie kid in 'Zombieland'...
But usually it's because the filmmakers are afraid of being branded the childhaters.
Because their feelings for love are dead!
