The latest trailer for Lollipop Chainsaw reminds us that just one bite from a zombie is all it takes to spell doom. Unless, of course, you have a loved one nearby to cheerfully chop off your head and keep it animated… somehow.

Thankfully, Nick's detached head isn't utterly useless. It seems it can be used as a projectile, or perched back atop his old zombified body to give his badass zombie-slaying girlfriend a leg-up over obstacles.
