Also known as the failure-to-stop drill, the Mozambique Drill is two shots (a double tap) to the chest followed by one to the head. While it may sound easy, the maneuver is difficult to perform under pressure. It was named by Mike Rousseau, a mercenary fighting on the side of the Portuguese during the Mozambican War of Independence. Rousseau found himself in a hostile airport, armed only with a sidearm, and turned a corner and bumped into a FRELIMO (Mozambican rebel) soldier. He quickly fired two shots into the chest of the man, and when that did not appear to affect his adversary, Rousseau fired a third round into the soldier's neck, severing his spine. This drill has been performed often in cinema and in video games, one prominent film being Michael Mann's 1995 thriller Heat, where it is performed twice.
When the zombie lumbered towards me, I fired two shots into his chest. When this failed to incapacitate the undead menace, I fired a third shot through his left eye, completing the Mozambique Drill.

Lousy B-movie director from the 1960s, most well known for his three movies The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961), The Skydivers (1963), and Red Zone Cuba (1966). All of the films are known for their terrible quality in both poor acting and the lack of an easily explainable plot. Coleman was also known for having cigarettes, light aircraft, coffee, and shoot-first-ask questions later shootouts from the police in his movies. The three were also all featured on the 1990s cult television show Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Coleman Francis played Griffin in Red Zone Cuba, a man who always wanted money, but settled for looks.
