Good catch. Will make a list of no-brain no-pain monsters.

I like my zombies strong as all get-out. This is what makes them scary!

Note that TFT zombies are not undead nor are they creatures (like say elementals are).
They are instead a form of (temporary) enchantment.

If you want to scare the players then have their goblin sorceresses dropping ordinary zombies with a snap of her fingers (You do have a goblin sorceresses with exactly this spell to deal with a certain annoying lizard, no?) and then have some fungus zombies shamble up.

Sure they aren't undead? The zombie spells says:

Zombie (T): Lets wizard reanimate a corpse to create an undead servant.

Zombies are actually "Magical Creatures" as per page 85 and not "Intelligent Monsters" (page 80) with the actual undead.

I.e. a Dragon or Ghoul won't be stopped by a pentagram while an Apep or elemental will, right?

Compare Zombie(T) vs Create/Destroy Elemental(S). Remove Thrown Spell will disenchant any zombie.

Exactly; Avert and Remove Thrown Spell can serve as the TFT equivalents of turning/destroying undead. (of course they do other things as well, but they get this job done).
