Cremains: Zombie Dust

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust... Yeah. Right.

A variation on the zombie genre: what about the cremated? What if "cremains" (that is *such* a weird word, but that's the word) could be reanimated? It would be "ZOMBIE DUST" - like a little cloud of nanozombie particulate matter, hiding under your bed, in the corner, under your car seat... WITHIN YOUR DUSTBUSTER... Breathe in some of the stuff and it would rip you apart and devour your brains from the INSIDE OF YOUR NOSE. Unpleasant way to go. Not to mention messy. And how would you kill it? No head to blow off...

       Zombie snuff ?

       Woah [21], bit heavy handed . The idea actually states that the cremated remains of people would rise up, zombie style, possessed by some malevolent gestalt intelligence, it is not about a zombie that gets up after being torched.
It is a fairly original idea to my mind, and it would be interesting to see how it would work in a film type setting.

       Sorry, that is not scary in the least. Bleach killsmicobes and germs, right? So just get a Clorox bleach spray bottle, and take out the ashes. then, sweep the floor,and you are done. Also, I rather think that you would sneeze up the zombie bits,or blow your nose to get rid of them. but still, + for a good idea.

       I was going to suggest some sort of spray glue type attack, bind all the nasty little blighters together, and dispose of them at your convenience.
kaz, Oct 20 2009

       Well, I gotta say, it's never crossed my mind.   

       But, it does kinda intimate that all you need is zombie dust to get the effect. Torched zombies included.   

       Zombie dust is slang for halcion and cocaine. apparently. I bet it eats brains when you snort it. mfd! hahah... baked.

       Well duh! That'd be why it's fiction.

       // Ashes can't *be* infected, they're inert dust. //   

       In some vampire canons, adding blood to vampire dust reanimates the vampire. But there's no need to worry, as full instructions are contained in your handy BorgCo Undead Home Protection Kit (q.v.) <link>

       In alchemical texts ashes from the dead could be combined with minerals and flame to produce visions of the deceased. You just like saying 'inert'. Argon is inert. Ashes are alkaline.

       (+) Good cheap concept for a low budget horror movie.   

       It could be a situation where you're safe as long as it rains.

       Wow. Nanorobot apocalypse via cremated zombies. [+]

       Night of the living dead part II: smoke from cremated zombies falls in rain onto a graveyard, producing additional zombie.

       //In some vampire canons, adding blood to vampire dust reanimates the vampire. ...//   

       If you separate a vampire dust-pile into two piles, and add blood to one of them, what happens?
Loris, Oct 21 2009

       whatever it is, first thing it'd do would be to reach/slump over and gather the other pile into itself.   

       [for the purposes of HB addiction counselling, this anno originally said "mist or half a flock'o'bats" which was erased and replaced by "if the dust is holographic in nature...", again erased and replaced by the above... help]
FlyingToaster, Oct 21 2009

       Having thought all along that cremation was the only safe way to go after you bite the big one, to prevent yourself from becoming a zombie, or from someone digging you up and stealing your fillings, I think now I'm scared to die. Good, bad idea +.
blissmiss, Oct 21 2009

       We are completely avoiding the problems of zombie dust abuse for recreational purposes. The youth of today are in grave danger.
normzone, Oct 21 2009

       // first thing it'd do would be to reach/slump over and gather the other pile into itself. //   

       If so, what if you separated out every mote of dust into a long trail and added a drop of blood to the end?
