Zombies in Real Life & Bill Pullman

There’s nothing freakier than zombies, so what if they actually existed? Scary stuff! I remember as a kid there was a movie that was eerie because it was true.

The Serpent and the Rainbow ’touched upon the subject of zombies and how a powerful poison powder (tetrodotoxin) would actually put a person into a near dead state. The freakiest part of this powder was that the person who took this poison became a prisoner in their own body. They are awake but they can’t move or speak…Imagine taking the powder and being buried alive!

I have to give a nod to the switcheroo scene in the movie where Bill Pullman uses sleight of hand to switch the poison vial with a fake vial…I also remember that the nail scene in The Serpent and the Rainbow was extremely uncomfortable to watch as a child, but it was way more horrifying to see the psychological brutality unfold in Hard Candy. So much pain inflicted to male private parts in movies, Ouch.
