Zombieland Rule #2 – Double Tap

Rule #2 of Zombieland – Double Tap.

You think it’s dead (technically it was before you shot it), one more makes 100% sure.

NB: In the pre-movie trailers Double Tap was rule #4 of Zombieland. In the final movie edit it became rule #2.

    id like to ask if u could put a subdivision under the double tap rule. Me and my friend came up with tag team double tap. you shoot it down and ur friend shoots it again. cuz killing zombies twice is always more fun with a friend:D…just a suggestion

  2. admin says:

    I don’t make the rules I’m afraid F.J. :)

    Suggest it to the Zombieland writers, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese.

  11. [...] Yeah, I know.  What?  But hear me out.  Here’s a geeky kid at home alone playing a video game.  A hot chick in trouble seeks shelter from him and she falls into his arms.  In any other kind of movie, I’d expect a love scene.  The characters would kiss and the kissing would turn passionate and so on and so forth.  But this is a zombie movie.  We know this because the first scene we’re introduced to Columbus surviving an attack from zombies.  He survives because he follows his rules.  So even though I expect these two characters to kiss and make love, when he wakes up to her turned into a zombie in his arms, I cheered.  His first time with a zombie and it was at the exact moment I expected a love scene.  406 turns out to be Columbus’ first zombie kill and also one of his first rules of survival, the double tap.

    So you honestly made a site about the movies “rules” and refuse to add anything new on the site that isn’t mentioned in the movie? ….. right…

    Well, I suggest anyone viewing this site rather SEES THE MOVIE, it has all the same information in it in a waaay more entertaining form.

    And Sgt. Major; if you’re really that stupid that you think ANYONE could EVER fall for that; Your stupidity makes me cry :(

  44. [...] As you can see, store-bought Clif bars are -ahem- slightly healthier than our bars but also twice as expensive. Ours tasted pretty good, too. The best part about this recipe is you can add, subtract, or substitute anything you want to improve the numbers. Switching half of the honey with a flax seed and water mixture will bring down the sugar. Using almond butter will lower the saturated fats. Or perhaps you found a dried cranberry delivery truck crashed on the side of the highway in or post-apocalyptic wasteland. The sky’s the limit to the variations. So make a few batches and stay well-fed while you run for your lives (or, you know, that half-marathon). And always remember to double-tap. [...]

  46. You’ve made some decent points there. I checked on the internet to find out more about the issue and found most
    individuals will go along with your views on this website.

  48. [...] Not only is Black Death probably gonna come back, but you wait. It’ll be 75 times stronger than it was. The media will call it Super Black Death or something. And the second you’re in a 75 ft range of someone infected, you’ll get it. Now that I consider all this…maybe this will be the start of the zombie apocalypse that everyone is talking about anymore. Yea…that’s it. The Super Black Death will probably turn us all into mindless, brain eating zombies. And, hey, if you’re one of the lucky ones who’s got the genetic make-up to resist the initial airborne outbreak, just remember…double tap. [...]
