Selena (Naomie Harris) told Jim (Cillian Murphy) that a person could contract the Rage virus in one of two ways - if they were bitten or if they got blood in their mouth. But not everyone became infected that way. Frank (Brendan Gleeson), for example, contracted the virus from the blood that dripped in his eye. Was he the only character that became infected in some other way?

Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth. That was the film's tagline and one explanation for why the dead were returning to life. Others believed the mutation was caused by some sort of virus. No definitive answer was given.
But if the latter proved correct, a vaccine could have been created. Why couldn't the Centers for Disease Control come up with one?

2. Francine's (Gaylen Ross) first words were incoherent. They had something to do with the nightmare she was experiencing. Who and/or what woke her up from that dream?

3. Francine fled the television station she worked for with Stephen (David Emge) when she heard that the city's Emergency Network was taking over. What else factored into her decision to leave?

4. Your name is Rod Tucker. Chaos rules the world around you. The dead are returning to life at an incredibly accelerated rate and Martial Law is in effect in all the major cities throughout the country. The task that your SWAT unit has been assigned to this night involves taking down a gang of armed men who have fortified themselves inside a Pittsburgh housing project. What's the first thing you witness inside the building after it's been secured?


A. Another member of the SWAT team, Wooley (Jim Baffico), goes crazy and blasts
Dawn of the Dead
(1) There weren't any live specimens available in Atlanta. (2) Someone put their hands on her shoulders and asked if she was okay. (3) The station aired the "supers" she tried to kill (people were directed to rescue stations that may have closed down). (4) D, none of the above. If your name is Rod Tucker, you took a bullet to the brain outside the building before it was secured. (5) The way a creature moved was a dead giveaway, so were their grunts, and even those who were just beginning to turn had a loss of skin pigmentation.

(6) The Priest (Jesse Del Gre) was the last person to enter the cellar alone. The only casualty was Roger, but his fate was sealed by another mistake - the bag he went back for. (7) The viewer discovered that the priest was an amputee when the camera pulled back. (8) It was writhing under a sheet and surrounded by several other zombies. (9) Mobile (10) It seemed like a good idea at the time because they were running out of fuel and because the dead were slow and spread out.

Yes, at least to our knowledge he was.
an innocent, living, man's head to bits with a shotgun
B. A zombified man takes a bite out of his wife's arm at the top of a stairway
C. The discovery of a number of zombies feasting on human remains in the building's basement
D. None of the above.


5. Only a handful of the zombies that were found in the housing project looked like what you'd expect a zombie to look like. Most appeared to be in the early stages of decay. How could one tell if someone was infected if there were no visible wounds?

6. Anyone who has seen enough horror movies knows you don't go into a basement or a cellar alone. That happened three times in the chapter entitled Slaughter of the Living Dead. Who was the last person to do it and what fate befell each of those individuals?

7. Here's a switch: How many times does a character notice something a little strange or peculiar about another character before the viewer? Not very often. That happened in the same chapter. The only hint we'll give you on this one is to say it wasn't a behavioral trait.

8. Peter (Ken Foree) never
saw the face of one of the zombies he killed in the housing project, or any other part of the creature's body for that matter (except for a hand), but he knew it wasn't human. What did he base that assumption on?

9. It was estimated that the living dead ate only five percent of a person's body. That's what enabled their prey to remain BEILMO when they revived. Unscramble the underlined word.

10. Should you stay or should you go? Life's really not worth living if you don't take a few risks. The question is, would you risk yours to get to the last remaining movie theater in a post-apocalyptic, zombie wasteland? We would, but that's just us - unless the place was swarming with the undead. If the mall was overrun when the group arrived, which it was, why did they stay?
