Go To

Lionel and Paquita will move to the United States after the movie, and they'll have a son.
His name ? Ash. Him strapping a chainsaw on his severed arm is his way of making homage to his father's... creative use of a garden tool.
  • Oddly enough, this movie takes place in 1957. Bruce Campbell was born in 1958.

Zombification is only one part of the Sumatran Rat Monkey's infection.
Ultimately, it's a multi-stage process that ends with the victim turning into another Sumatran Rat Monkey. When we see Vera at the end, she looks sort of like a halfway point between a human and a rat monkey, especially since her skull became elongated and animal-like. The cycle only happens in full if you're bitten by a Rat Monkey, which is why only Vera went through with it.

The Civilization on Skull Island suffered a Zombie Apocalypse.
We know Sumatran rat monkeys live on the King Kong remake's version of skull island fromA Natural History of Skull Island, and the island is covered in ruins from a civilization destroyed by unknown means....

Just when you think Lionel and Paquita are free forever of the bloodshed, and are about to move on with their lives... IT STARTS ALL OVER AGAIN. Once the music reaches a crescendo, we hear a biting sound.
YES. Paquita has bit Lionel. She was a zombie all along. And THAT'S NOT EVEN THE HALF OF IT. All the zombies wake up AGAIN, (yes, even Vera), only this time much more stronger than the preceding events could ever hope to describe, and this time, they're coming for US. And there's nothing anybody in the world can do about it.

How well does it match the trope?
