ive seen that Contagium on the shelf but never rented it, reliable sources have warned me to stay away from it, so I left it alone for the time being. Plus, I was kinda offput by the false advertising of "Day of the Dead II", it would be like seeing a film on the shelf called "Evil Dead IV: The Last Stand" or something which had nothing to do with Raimi, Ash, et al. I almost wouldnt rent it on principle alone, it's just an underhanded and disrespectful thing to do. Then again, the whole Zombi/Zombi II situation with the aforementioned Fulci zombie flick almost mirrors the situation, but it wasnt done here in the US and it's just different. It just is.
Perhaps I'll give it a looksee if I see it on the shelf after all, thanks for your report, Commander Narpet.
Professors Pladio and Dt, I thank you both for your contributions to my zombie research. However, a merman is still technically humanoid, and it is a game after all, so I would be hesitant to state that as evidence for any further hypotheses I would formulate without further research establishing it as possibly inspired by real world events. Now, Ive seen many instances of animal undead, such as Return of the Living Dead, Re-Animator, and of course the well-documented cases detailed in Pet Sematary. I dont recall a direct bite from undead being the catalyst for any of those zombification tho.
