Favorite quote: “She doesn’t know what she’s getting into.”

Thoughts: Notes! Because I’m lazy!

Train porn! Oh, to ride such a train!

Early lesbian experience for Bet and Virginia – this would explain why meeting her former boarding school chum/lover and potentially losing her not-serious boytoy to her is fraught with so much emotion.

Virginia jumps off the train and heads toward Zombieville. I like this, solo female – fairly rare. Either going to end really badly, or really awesomely.

Yes, put on your clothes to investigate the sound. Because you know it’d be indecent to be killed in your nightgown.

Templar zombies on horses, yes! Moldering cloaks, chanting – I am all about this.

Geez, lady, use your words. Ask them what they want.

Horsejacking! Templars justified at this point? Virginia gummed to death? Bite transmission/curse model.

Freaky morgue guard. Igor? “Why are you not answering my horribly impertinent, inappropriate, disgusting questions regarding the body of this young woman? Why are you ruining this for meeee?” Oh, and victim-shaming medical examiners? You suck.

Virgin sacrifice in 13th century – blood = life. Satanism.

Bony hands look almost metallic. Love the bearded skulls. Shooting them does zip.

Zombies are blind, hunt by sound – really incredible idea. They follow heartbeats – betrayal of one’s own body.

Zombie plague spread via train! Let the steampunk angels sing!
