Once the illusion of the mall's consumer paradise fades away, you realise that you're trapped in there... forever....

From the 1978 film: Edit

  • The original is actually worse with this with Gorn levels of violence.
    • The racist cop in the raid running amok killing off random refugees with reckless glee before getting gunned down. We're treated to an extreme close-up of one of his victims.
    • A biker trying to use the heart-rate monitor machine gets his arm ripped off by a swarm of zombies surrounding him.
    • The original ending would have had Francine commit suicide by sticking her head into the rotating helicopter blades.

From the 2004 film Edit

  • A particularly effective bit:

 "You're going to kill my family?"

  • The zombified baby itself, though YMMV.
  • The obese woman, even before she's zombified.
