The foulest stench is in the air; the funk of forty-thousand years, and grisly ghouls from every tomb are closing in to seal your doom and though you fight to stay alive, your body starts to shiver. For no mere mortal can resist the evils of the thriller...
Thriller Zombies are exponentially more dangerous than a regular zombie, which makes it proportionally more dangerous due to its ability to get down with it. As they are, Thriller Zombies are some of the most fascinating and underestimated of the undead.
