The Walking Dead: Slow Vs Fast

Darabont said he’s put a lot of thought into it and decided to fall back to George A. Romero’s original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. He called it the “Book of Genesis” of his zombies here. People forget the first zombie we see in NOTLD is moving fairly quickly. He’s not running, but he shuffles after Barbara at a decent speed. That, Darabont feels, gives him a little liberty at having his zombies do a little more than a mummy-walk.

The briskly-walking dead. I guess you could say they are in the Goldilocks zone.

The "coffee" scene where the two zombie kids chase Ken Foree at the airport in Dawn of the Dead shows them running at top speed...

That said, it is The WALKING Dead - not the Running Dead..
