Zombie Nora, formerly known as Nora Cosgrove, is the main antagonist of the 1992 New Zealand horror-comedy film Braindead.
After being bitten by a diseased Sumatran Rat Monkey at a zoo, Lionel's overbearing mother Nora dies and reanimates as a zombie that begins to infect the rest of the townspeople and mutate into a gargantuan beast.
In her final form, Nora transforms into a grotesque bloated creature with enormous hanging breasts, stringy hair, and a decaying face shaped like that of a naked mole rat. Her fingers are incredibly long and bony.
