Creepy Movie Scene of the Day: “Dawn of the Dead”- The Blood Pressure monitor
Easily this movie’s goofiest death scene. A member of the motorcycle gang (a gang that proves just as dangerous to the gang of survivors as the zombie horde) just HAS to check his blood pressure during a zombie attack. And who can blame him? Being eaten alive by the undead is a leading cause of hypertension.
And yes, the “please remain still” sign on the machine is one of the movie’s most inspired touches of black humor.
