Films: Brain Dead (2007)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil
Summary: Zombies will be conceived by literally anything. And we've seen what happens when alien parasites get involved already. Not that it'll stop Hollywood from doing it again...
History: Not too long ago, a man got struck in the head with a meteorite from outer space. Unfortunately, the meteorite was filled with an amoeba-like parasite, which controlled his dead body in a bid for flesh to eat. Pretty soon, the man had a whole army of the dead behind him after the amoeba infected some more.
Notable Kills: Punching a hole through a person's head and another death about ripping a person's head in half. Both all in the name of getting to that juicy brain.
Final Fate: After many die horribly, both zombie and man alike, the lead zombie who started this whole mess in the first place gets his head sliced off, causing the amoeba to spasm and die.
Powers/Abilities: The amoeba can infect anyone it comes into contact with, forming a sort of hive mind with all of its minions.
Weakness: Anything conventional, though trauma to the head works the best. Also, the amoeba will need a host or it will die instantly.
Scariness Factor: 4-Zombies are zombies, but yowza, these are some violent ones, we tell you! We get that brains are juicy, but dear God, the methods most of these undead use to get to those brains! It doesn't help that the amoeba itself is a really disgusting beast, looking like the Venom symbiote without any of the charm.
Trivia: -The weather was one of extremes for the film crew. Either the cabin was too hot and humid for anyone to want to set foot in it, or the water was freezing cold to swim in.
-Originally, the final zombie's head was to be set on fire, but the local fire marshal prevented this.
