No more dead bodies for daddy tonight
~ Dr. Willaim Block

Dr. William "Bill" Block is the secondary antagonist of the 2007

American zombie film directed by Robert Rodriguez Planet Terror.

History

When the DC2 spreads out in Texas during a Wednesday night (the nights where Dr. Block is more stressed out than ever) the hospital fills up with infected people and zombie victims, also falling victim, fatally, is Tammy, who was on her way to into town to reunite with her former lover Dakota. When Tammy's body arrives at the hospital, Dr. Block recognizes her and by comparing text messages on the cellular phones of Tammy and his wife, realizes Dakota was about to leave him. He then attacks Dakota with her own anesthetic syringe needles, stabbing her repeatedly in the hands, rendering them useless, before locking her in a closet to tend to other patients.

After awhile the patients start transforming into zombies, and one of Dr. Block's patients infects part of his face, Dakota manages to escape to her car, but in struggling to open its door with her numbed hands, accidentally breaks her left wrist. She eventually manages to drive away, retrieves her son Tony and takes him to her father, Earl McGraw, a Texas Ranger. Tony, who was given a revolver by his mother, accidentally shoots himself in the face after being told not to point it at himself, while Dakota is watching in horror her son's dead body, she is surprised by a mutated William who tries to kill her with a poisoned syringe, but Dakota manages to escape with Tony's dead body to his father's house and gets rescued.

Dr. Block is shown in the movie as a sinister, cold, wrathful and stressed out doctor with a lot of frustration working at a local Texas hospital along with his wife his the unhappy, unfaithful bisexual anesthesiologist Dr. Dakota Block, he is also father of a not very intelligent son called Tony.

In the movie he says he hates Wednesday Nights at the hospital as it is always when the most messed up things happen and there's a lot much work to do, because of this he puts a glass mixing stick in his mouth to regulate his stress level by trying not to break it with his teeth.
