Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In the 2008 movie "Quarantine", the inhabitants of an apartment complex are quarantined inside, by the CDC, with the infected. Rade Serbedzija played the building manager of the apartment complex plagued by the infection. What was his character's first name?

Answer: Yuri

Yuri Ivanov, the manager of the apartment complex, calls the fire department to report a resident in trouble. This is what leads to the discovery that there is more going on in this building than expected.

"Quarantine" is an American remake of the 2007 Spanish film "Rec", which went on to spawn a sequel ("Rec 2") in 2009. The sequel followed up on the original storyline, attempting to explain further the origin of the infection.

The remake is almost identical and varies very little from the original.
2. Another zombie-themed movie released in 2008 is "Pontypool". "Pontypool" offered us yet another take on a "zombie outbreak". This time the "infection" is being spread through the English language. The film was shot on location in Canada. Which Canadian province is the site of the outbreak?

Answer: Ontario

The film was actually shot on location in the town of Pontypool and in Toronto, Ontario.

Stephen McHattie has the starring role in this film, playing Grant Mazzy, one time big city shock jock now small town radio announcer. The majority of this movie takes place in Grant's small, basement radio station while a deadly infection spreads through the small town of Pontypool outside, turning the residents into crazed, blood-thirsty maniacs.
3. In 2002, the hugely popular video game series "Resident Evil" was made into a feature film of the same name. In both the movies and games, an experimental virus gets released from a secret lab and kills the living then raises them as the walking dead. Which "evil" corporation is responsible for the deadly outbreak?

Answer: Umbrella

The Umbrella Corporation is a bioengineering pharmaceutical company, which manufactures everything from medical supplies to computers to biological weapons. They create a virus called the T-Virus, which can alter the genetic make-up of all living beings, which leaks out and begins the spread of the infection.

This much anticipated movie went on to spawn several sequels, in which the virus first released upon Raccoon City is now a worldwide outbreak.

The video game made its debut in 1996 and became so popular that it has led to the creation of many more games in the series.
4. In a slightly different take on the zombie apocalypse, "28 Days Later" portrays a virus outbreak in England turning normal people into "raging" monsters. The movie "28 Days Later" was directed by whom? (Last name only)

Answer: Boyle

In "28 Days Later", the 'zombie-like' infection known as the "rage virus" causes people to go into a blood-thirsty rage and attack any uninfected humans in sight. This successful English film, directed by Danny Boyle, made way for a sequel in 2007. The sequel, "28 Weeks Later", was produced by Mr. Boyle but directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

In 2009 Danny Boyle won an Oscar for Best Director for the award winning "Slumdog Millionaire", and in 2011, his film "127 Hours" was nominated for Best Picture.
5. In the horror/comedy "Zombieland", the world is overrun by the walking dead, but unlike most zombie movies, it is shown with a humorous view. The main characters have all adopted the names of the cities from which they came, rather than using their real names, for fear of forming attachments to other people. In a zombie apocalypse, your friend can be there one minute and gone the next. One character, played by Abigail Breslin, was named after the capital of which U.S. state?

Answer: Arkansas

This hilarious "zomedy" stars Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin. The story centers around four characters that have been thrown together out of circumstance, making their way to Los Angeles in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) and her big sister Wichita (Emma Stone), are making their way to Pacific Playland, an amusement park in L.A. and end up becoming travelling partners with Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) and Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg). Bill Murray makes a small but extremely funny appearance in the film as himself.
6. In the 2010 film "The Crazies", we are once again witness to a strange occurrence turning everyday people into mindless "crazies". Timothy Olyphant plays David, the sheriff of this plagued small town. What is the name of David's deputy, who later ends up in his small group of survivors?

Answer: Russell

Joe Anderson plays Deputy Sheriff Russell. After some of the residents of this small Iowa town begin acting strangely erratic and violent, David and Russell try to find the reason for this outbreak of "craziness" and later discover it to be the fault of a crashed military cargo plane. After being separated by the military evacuation, they are later reunited, but David and his wife, Judy, notice Russell seems to be acting suspiciously, and David fears Russell may be infected.

This movie is a remake of George A. Romero's 1973 film of the same name. The 2010 film also starred Radha Mitchell, Timothy Olyphant and had a cameo appearance by Lynn Lowry, who was a co-star in the original 1973 film.
7. The zombie apocalypse that started in "Night of The Living Dead" continues in George A. Romero's third installment, "Day of The Dead". In this film, scientists in an underground military base are trying to find a cure but one of them, Dr. Matthew Logan, has his own idea to "domesticate" the zombies. What is the name of Dr. Logan's star zombie pupil?

Answer: Bub

After his cult hits of "Night of The Living Dead" and "Dawn of The Dead", George A. Romero gave us yet a third zombie treat with "Day of The Dead".

Bub was unlike the other zombies due to his ability to remember instances from his life before his death. He was also able to recognize everyday items such as books, telephones and razors, making him a perfect specimen for testing.

Interestingly enough, the man who portrayed Bub is Sherman Howard, who also played Elaine's boyfriend in the hilarious "Seinfeld" episode "The Junior Mint".
8. This 1985 zombie/comedy, set in Louisville, Kentucky, has a newly hired teenage assistant accidentally releasing a mysterious gas from a government metal drum being stored in a medical supply warehouse. The strange gas seems to bring the dead back to life and as it does, chaos ensues. Which movie I am describing here?

Answer: Return of the Living Dead

The script for this film was written around the same time that George A. Romero was working on his second "Dead" film, "Dawn of The Dead". When director Dan O'Bannon received the script, he felt it was too much like a sequel to Romero's "Night of The Living Dead" and didn't want to "intrude so directly on Romero's turf", so the script was rewritten to be more humorous.
9. The deadly virus in the "Resident Evil" movies is killing people and bringing them back from the dead as flesh-hungry zombies, but in rare instances it is causing a mutation in the host. The heroine of these films is one of those people, who has seemed to gain superhuman physical, mental and regenerative abilities. The question at hand is, what is the name of this character?

Answer: Alice

The character of Alice was created specifically for the screenplay, as Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine were the main characters of the video game, and not Alice.

The original person hired by Sony and Capcom to write and direct the "Resident Evil" movie was George A. Romero. Romero's vision was to have the movie heavily based on the video game with the lead characters being Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. Unfortunately, Romero's script was rejected. A year later, Paul W.S. Anderson was hired, and his script was quite the opposite. Anderson felt that the movie should have no tie-ins to the video games. Anderson stated that "under-performing movie tie-ins are too common and "Resident Evil", of all games, deserved a good celluloid representation".
10. Well, if you've gotten all the answers right to the first nine questions then you should be able to figure out the solution to this one. Finish this quote. Johnny: "They're coming to get ______."

Answer: you Barbra

What better way to end a quiz on zombies than to end it with a quote from the original "zombie master", George A. Romero's movie, "Night of the Living Dead"? Mr. Romero's movies have continually frightened, amused, and entertained us since 1968, making him the "godfather of zombie films". I first saw this film as a child in the '70s, and to this day, every time I see Johnny and Barbra in the cemetery and he utters, "They're coming to get you Barbra", it still gives me a serious case of the creeps.

I thought I would also add, in case there was some doubt, that the character Barbra didn't spell her name with the more traditional spelling Barbara. I actually had to pop in the movie and watch the credits myself in order to be sure.
