Poor Bastards of Cinema: Day of the Dead (2004)

In the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead, suburban life is shattered when our heroine's husband is bitten by a zombie girl and turns.  Fortunately, she gets to her car, although he's still in pursuit...
"Oh look," Zombie Husband thinks, "Someone who's not in the car."
"It sure is a nice day to get the paper," random woman says, "Hey- who's that guy covered in blood!"
"Oh God, he's killing me," the woman cries out.

Meanwhile, our heroine doesn't even bother looking back.  That's cold, bitch!
Granted, this woman was probably going to die from the zombie outbreak soon enough.  However, it's only due to our heroine's actions that her zombie husband was led right to her.  Nice job, lady.

As a side note, she doesn't figure out until an hour into the film that being bitten turns you...which is odd when this happens to her husband right at the beginning.  You're a nurse, right?

Next up, one poor character is just tormented, abused and just generally screwed over in a film.  Hell, they even get him after the film actually ends!  Stay tuned...
