    Do you think a zombie would be able to swim, or get across water?

    A couple of movie examples suggest that they'd be able to. In Land of the Dead they what... walk across the bottom or something? Either way, they manage to get across the river. In the first Resident Evil movie some of the labs are filled with water which kill people in the process, but are brought back as zombies and do just fine :P

    I think they could walk on the bottom assuming pressure was not too high. not actually swim though.

    Yeah, they wouldn't be doing backstrokes but more floating around like a ragdoll xD

    Land of the Dead was ridiculous in the aspect that they can swim & learn considering you become cannibal because you lost all senses.

    Again they can also drown considering they did feel pain and do die.

    No, it's from the famous zombie Italian movie, Zombi 2.

    I don't think they can actually swim, but perhaps they could walk across the bottom.

    They wouldn't swim but they walk across the bottom and even fight sharks in Zombi 2, one of the best zombie films of all time.

    At some point though wouldn't a zombie walking the ocean floor make for a tempting treat for the fish?

    Good point and also am pretty sure if a dead/re-animated body was under water for a couple of weeks it would start falling to pieces, if you are in the shower for 30min your hands go wrinkly... you might be onto a winner of how we could stop the imminent apocalypse when it happens... drive them walkers into the sea!
