resurrection awol for 'passion' viewer

reuters tells us of a brazilian pastor who died while watching "the passion of the christ":

jose geraldo soares, a 43-year-old presbyterian pastor, had reserved two movie theaters at a belo horizonte shopping mall on sunday afternoon to see the film with his family and the congregations of two local churches.

but halfway through the movie, soares' wife noticed that he was no longer awake. a doctor who was also watching the film tended to soares, but the priest was already dead.

"he was calmly watching the movie next to his wife," said amauri costa, a family friend who also attended soares' funeral on monday.

soares is at least the second person to die while watching "the passion," which opened in brazil on friday. peggy scott, 56, died of a heart attack on feb. 25 in wichita, kansas while watching film's climactic crucifixion scene.
we're waiting to hear about the audience members who became zombies while watching dawn of the dead.
