Poor Bastards of Cinema: Sands of Oblivion

Sands of Oblivion is a goofy movie, but it's not as goofy as it should be.  Dan Castallanetta as Cecil B. DeMille?  Why is he not the star?

Anyhow, they give us this scene in which our two heroes are fleeing from their hotel room...
They flee down the hallway, passing by the signs of a maid doing her clean-up rounds.  What about her, you ask?
'Don't mind me,' the villain says, 'I'm just locking this door and running away for no reason.  Just stand there.'
'Sure- I see no reason to question...oh my God, a swarm of locusts!  I'm dead now!'
What did this woman do to deserve this death?  Nothing- absolutely nothing.  Damn.

Next up, another animal meets a violent and unnecessary fate.  It doesn't pay to be a snake.  Stay tuned...
