S is for Sox - Blogging From A To Z Challenge 2014
Zombie Strippers 2008
Sox is one of the strippers that works in the underground strip club, "Rhino." A man-made virus works it way off a secret naval base and infects the strippers. Amazingly, the patrons prefer zombie strippers over the regular strippers. Will Sox choose to become a zombie for better tips, or stay alive and fight off the attacking undead?

R is for Rose - Blogging From A To Z Challenge 2014
The film opens as Rose (Brooke Adams) is found drifting alone in a small rowboat. Two fishermen find the dinghy and pull her onto their boat, barely alive and in a horrible state. Her voiceover indicates she had been rescued from some terrifying experience. The film's events are flashbacks.
Rose is seen previously as part of a small group of tourists aboard a small commercial pleasure boat. The Captain (John Carradine) seems to be having trouble with the boat. His mate, Keith (Luke Halpin), seems to share a mutual attraction with Rose. Also on board are Dobbs (Don Stout), who is the boat's cook; Chuck (Fred Buch), another tourist; and a bickering married couple named Norman (Jack Davidson) and Beverly (D.J. Sidney).
After some trouble with the engine, the Captain and Keith are faced with the fact that their navigation system is going haywire after they encounter a strange orange haze. The others sense that something is wrong and that they may be lost at sea. Norman in particular becomes very whiny about it, insulting the Captain and being generally abrasive to everyone. In the darkness of night, a hulking ship suddenly appears and brushes up alongside their boat, damaging it. The Captain sends up a flare, which momentarily lights up the eerie sight of a huge, rotting vessel wrecked nearby.

Q is for Quinn - A to Z Blogging Challenge 2014
Dead & Deader 2006
Lieutenant Bobby Quinn (Dean Cain) is second-in-command of an U.S. special forces squad that travels to Cambodia to follow up on the case of a small medical outpost that has ceased communications.
The squad soon finds itself confronted by flesh-eating zombies seemingly created by a strange species of scorpion. The squad clears away the zombies, but is then attacked by an infected researcher who attempts to commit suicide with a grenade. Lieutenant Quinn initially survives the explosion and radios for a medivac airlift, but then falls unconscious.
Later, Quinn wakes up on an exam table at Ft. Preston Army Base, to find he is being prepped for postmortem. The coroner explains that he arrived in a body-bag the previous evening and had been pronounced DOA, as he has no vital signs.
