The sprinty sort of zombies in flicks like 28 Days Later would negate any chance of survival. Numbers and speed? Invincible. With traditional undead, it's the pack that eventually corners you.
I've never quite understood how their numbers grow though. If they eat their victims, what's left to arise and join their ranks? Are they like spoiled kids or royalty that take one bite from a piece of fruit and toss it away? The Walking Dead skirts this issue with the mechanic that anyone who dies, rises as the undead. That's particularly nasty, as infection vectors are already in place everywhere. No compound is truly safe; no stronghold secure.
