Zombie Cliché Lookout:
One of the creepiest moments in any zombie flick is when the monster, having sustained wounds that would kill any normal person ten times over, gets back up and starts coming after the living once again. Responses from characters tend to center around disbelief, often for so long that one of them becomes the creature’s lunch while they try to rationalize what they’re seeing.
