  BETTER OFF DEAD
DeadGirl
Marcel Sarmiento/Gadi Harel, 2008
.......................................................................................................................................
Word from the wise: let sleeping zombies lie. The specimen that was found in the basement of the old mental asylum may not have looked the part when it was initially discovered, but you know the old adage - if it acts like a … and smells like a rotting piece of meat, it probably is a zombie. Refresh our memory here. What did JT (Noah Segan) recall seeing when the deadgirl (Jenny Spain) woke up?

Day of the Dead
(1) Keeping track of the number of bodies that were removed from the storage facility. (2) Dr Logan discovered that the rate of decomposition slowed substantially when the dead were revived (3) The reason why the undead still hungered for food even without a stomach was because the creatures functioned on instinct. (4) The R-Complex, aka Prehistoric brain jelly (5) What was making it happen.

(6) A lot of it was contaminated. He didn't have a sterile environment to work in. (7) Piss him off (8) Dr Logan shut off the lights when he left to room after the creature flipped over a cart. (9) He addressed the zombie by his father's nickname (10) We'd be singing. "I ran, I ran so far away" if we survived an encounter with a flock of undead seagulls.

She growled at him and then tried to bite him.
 
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!

Frights, Camera, Trivia
..................................
Shout, shout, let it all out. You know you would if something was trying to eat you alive. You'd also do some chewing out of your own if someone kept forgetting to do something that jeopardized your safety. That's why Rickles got an earful from Sarah (Lori Cardille).
Which one of his (and the group's) responsibilities was deemed essential?

2. Anyone know what the average lifespan of a zombie is? If your best guess is a few weeks based on the rate of decomposition alone, you'd be wrong. What kept the undead going... and going and going?

3. Suppose you stumbled across a zombie that had been completely gutted. We're talking no heart, no lungs or liver, not even a stomach. Would it still try to eat you if it could move? The answer is, of course it would, but not for the reason you might think.

4. Feed it and weep. That's exactly what would happen if you tried to shove a PBJ sandwich down zombie's throat. We ain't talking peanut butter, kids. This is the stuff found in the core of the brain and what rendered the creatures benign, if removed.
5. Paging Dr. Logan (Richard Liberty), Dr. "Don't call me Frankenstein" Logan. The progress he made with Bub (Howard Sherman) proved that he was on to something special. Still, Sarah felt that he was wasting his time trying to define what was happening instead of looking for what?

6. A zombie ate your homework? Better it than you. Fisher (John Amplas) estimated that at least half of his research work was lost. What was his excuse?

7. Do you know where Rhodes (Joe Pilato) would have taken his men the first, second or even the third time he threatened to abandon the facility? We don't and neither did he. That's why he reluctantly agreed to give Dr Logan the extra time he needed to domesticate the dead, if the good doctor could show him some results and didn't do this.
8. What's all the hub bub, Bub? "Think about it," he said. "Think about what you've done!" What did he do to deserve the punishment he got it what did that punishment involve?

9. There was no resemblance whatsoever between Bub and Dr Logan's presumably deceased father, but the zombie reminded him of his dad every time he saw him. Why?

10. If a disease like rabies can be transferred from animals to humans, why couldn't an animal be infected by a zombie? The beach would have been the last stop for Sarah and the others if one or more of the critters we spotted in the film's closing sequence were carriers of the virus.
