Well, you put it that way and it is more acceptable. Still, that was the
weakest part of the movie. But you know, a decapitated head can still see
and hear and whatnot for something like 20-40 seconds, right? So long as
there's that last bit of oxygen from the blood feeding the brain? So maybe
he could still hear and still be "dead". I guess we'll have to wait for the
book, should there be one.
