|8.||Dawn of the Dead|
Released in 1978, Dawn of the Dead is the sequel to the 1968 cult classic "Night of the Living Dead", and was written and directed once again by horror filmmaker George A. Romero, who has been hailed as the father of modern zombie cinema.more...
The story is set just a few weeks ahead of the events of the first film. The unknown force that is raising the recently deceased is still persisting. As more people are being killed and eaten by the walking corpses - only to become flesh-eating zombies themselves - the world has started to fall into a state of disarray. The end is on the horizon.
Four people - a traffic helicopter pilot, his girlfriend from the WGON news studio, and two national guardsman - take off from their responsibilities in the traffic helicopter and take refuge inside a shopping mall that is crowded with the living dead. Through a series of spine-chilling sweeps throughout the shopping mall, as they gather supplies and kill the zombies, the four manage to secure the mall as their own safe haven. A monument to decadent consumerism and a barricaded fortress all in one...
But as time passes, they begin to see that the mall has become their prison, rather than their salvation...
The make-up effects and its dated style are probably the most noticeable attributes ...

a comic series written by the articulate genius Robert Kirkman about a zombie infested world and a group of people struggling to survive.

1. The reason Tupac Shakur is still releasing albums a decade on from his murder is that he is in fact alive as one of the walking dead. This incarnation is known as Zombie Tupac.
2. A reference point when referring to any artist who posthumously releases a large body of work.
1. Zombie Tupac's recording some hot shit these days. Not bad for a ten year old corpse.
2. ANOTHER new Johnny Cash album? It's Zombie Tupac all over again...
The act of pressing one's penis against a window. The slightly flattened penis gives those on the other side of the window a visual of a "dead rat". This act is particularly entertaining while walking by a bar with floor to ceiling windows on a busy weekend evening.
Man was he hammered! I can't believe he dropped a dead rat on that bar!
|12.||dead man walking|
In poker - when a player is drawing dead and has no chance of winning the hand.
Even though Rex had quad Aces on the turn, Randy had drawn a Royal Flush, so Rex was a dead man walking.
The infamous expression of shock/disbelief and/or rejection. Famous users of the 'Dead Meerkat' include Petr Cech, and of course, meerkats, such as the one in 'The Lion King' (Please note that no research was taken into whether or not the meerkat in 'The Lion King' did indeed assume the 'Dead Meerkat' position even once throughout the entirity of the film).
The expression is a pose in which the user extends the arms outwards, elbows bent, fingers pointing downwards with the palms facing towards the ribcage, usually accompanied by a facial expression of shock and/or bewilderness/disorientation. In extreme circumstances, the user will assume the pose whilst simultaneously falling backwards onto the ground, curling up one's legs and stiffening the toes.
Player A: *Slots ball past Petr Cech*
Petr Cech: *Falls onto back and assumes the position of the 'Dead Meerkat'*
Person A: "Oi mate watch me get wiv dis fitty yeah"
Person B: "Go on then son"
Person A: *Walks up to target and offers to dance*
Target: *Looks at her less attractive friend, pointing towards the bar, followed by a nod in unison from both, thus walking away*
Person A: *Assumes the 'Dead Meerkat' position*
