That's par for the course anymore, thank George Romero for that. The moral behind most zombie movies is, you can't fight against even a common enemy if you fight amongst yourselves; most survivors wind up dying in zombie movies precisely because of infighting. The unit cohesion breaks apart, and people are then at risk. Actually though, while a valid observation, it would be nice to see something different and fresh for once. It kinda makes all zombie movies the same (outside of having zombies in them o' course)

Then gain, people always do stupid things in horror movies. They always go to investigate that sound alone, (when a smart person would run the other way) they always drop their weapon at an inopportune moment, (like Harry did at the end of CoS when he found Ginny) etc.. it's just too easy of a plot device.
