Unsung Heroes of the Zombie Apocalypse pt. 2

I believe in giving credit where credit is due, and while we all know the famous faces of zombie killers, many times there are those who are just as effective and, often times more colorful, get lost among the horde.

Today we continue our salute to those whose faces you may not be familiar with. LAST TIME it was Father McGruder from New Zealand's DEAD ALIVE (aka BRAIN DEAD). Today's hero is the protagonist from that film....

...Mr. Lionel Cosgrove!

Heroes are often seen as strong, confident individuals with almost an uncanny sense for danger. Lionel was none of those things. A meek, little man, Lionel was under the thumb of his controlling mother until one bite from a diseased Sumatran rat monkey changed everything.

Lionel bravely sliced, diced, and chopped his way thru the apocalypse, while keeping his beautiful girlfriend near his side AND protecting his zombified mother.

In fact, Lionel did something that I have yet to see again in a zombie film. When a blood thirsty horde of zombie party goers took over his mothers home, he rigged a shoulder strap to his lawn mower and went to work in one of the most disgustingly bloody scenes of all time.

Embedding is disabled for this clip, but if you have the stomach, CLICK HERE to watch as Lionel the mama's boy becomes Lionel the Zombie Killer.

We salute you, Lionel! Yard work never looked so nasty!

Aim high. Run fast.
