                    FADE IN:

                    EXT. FIELD -- DAY

                    Two men walk through a barren and deserted field, miles away from 
                    civilisation. It was once a healthy field full of crops, but it 
                    has now been reduced to splintery shells by a harvest. It is early 
                    to mid afternoon and the sun is bronze behind its hazy blue and 
                    white background, it illuminates the scene well.

                    Slowly the theme tune fades into dark nothingness and we began to 
                    move in on the scene around us. We notice that the men are armed. 
                    One has a Styer MTP machine-gun and the other a curious looking 
                    revolver, both of them also have daggers which are hidden in various 
                    pockets and hooked through the backs of their belts.

                    The one with the Styer is SHENG-TAI LEE, surprisingly enough he is 
                    British but has oriental parentage, on his mother's side. He is 
                    small, about five foot eight, with dark blonde hair, stocky to 
                    average build and a very thoughtful personage.

                    The second man is known as THE CHOPPER, his real name is Harry 
                    Deckard, but he is only known as Chopper. He is an expert on 
                    Zombies, he has almost every book and film about them and owns an 
                    encyclopedic knowledge, this comes in particulary handy as they 
                    are in the middle of an invasion of Zombies.

                    Both of them look haggard and tired, and their clothes are slightly 
                    ripped and dirty. Lee wears a T-shirt and cut-off jeans, while 
                    Chopper wears khaki trousers.  We can see many stings and scratches 
                    on Lee's exposed shin, they evidentally come from wearing low-cut, 
                    short-like jeans.

                                     LEE
                         Oh...however far away is this barricade of 
                         yours?

                                     CHOPPER
                         I have no idea, this is only my third trip 
                         to this place, I've never been this far into 
                         the fields.

                                     LEE
                         Great. So how d'you know the location of 
                         this barricade?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Because I memorized the map, idiot. Anyway 
                         it's on the edge of the town. We're only a 
                         few miles away.

                                     LEE
                         You do realize that we were the ones who 
                         started this, don't you?

                                     CHOPPER
                         What?

                                     LEE
                         Well...if you cast your mind back a few nights 
                         ago...

                                                                     FADE TO:

                    INT. PICKUP TRUCK (MOVING) -- NIGHT

                    Superimpose: One night in central Yorkshire... 

                    It's a five seater Mitshibush L200, inside are five hikers. Chopper 
                    is Driving, riding shotgun to him is BEN KINGSLEY, a heavy-set guy 
                    with curly red hair and very sharp features. Ben smokes a 
                    Superkings' cigarette.

                    In the seat behind Chopper, is Lee who is engrossed in a Gameboy 
                    advance game. Colourful music plays from it. Scorch, the alsatian 
                    is in his chair's footwell, but the poor thing looks very cramped.  
                    Squashed in the middle seat is DAVID CAISTER, a slightly bug-eyed 
                    but very intelligent guy and next to him is CHLOE MASTERS a nice 
                    looking, although slightly quiet girl. All are early twenties.

                    All of them are in hiking garb, they are scouting out the area for 
                    their hike, although it is hammering down with rain, their spirits 
                    will not be dampened. (Lovely pun).

                    Caister studies a map.

                                     CAISTER
                         Ah ha, take the next road right and we'll be 
                         right on top of it.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Great.

                                     CAISTER
                         Well, it'll give you a break from all this 
                         driving.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Yeah. Tell me about it.

                    Chopper turns right down the next road.

                                     CHLOE
                         It's a nice, undisturbed area 'round here 
                         isn't it?

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                                     BEN
                         Yeah, perfect place for an all night tent 
                         party.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Maybe...if the weather sorts itself out.

                                     LEE
                         Huh, here's hoping.

                                     BEN
                         Shut up, Lee, you always lower the tone.

                                     LEE
                         Oh look at you, you fat col...

                                     CHOPPER
                         Ladies...please...can we calm down here?

                                     LEE
                         Sorry, it's just...

                                     CHOPPER
                         Lee!

                                     LEE
                         Sorry, dad.

                                     CHOPPER
                         There's no need to be cheeky...
                              (Mimics fatherly tone)
                         ...boy.

                                     CHLOE
                         Is it here?

                                     CHOPPER
                              (Swinging the car)
                         Yep.

                    Chopper stops the truck and then leans onto the dash. After a second 
                    he spins round and stares at Ben.

                                     BEN
                         What?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Put the damned smoke out.

                                     BEN
                         C'mon man, it's my last one. Want a puff?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Shut up.

                    Ben stubs it out and chucks it through the window.

                                     BEN
                         C'mon then ladies and gents, let's get this 
                         party started.

                    He opens his door and leaps out into the rain.

                                     BEN (CONT'D)
                         Whoa! It's rainin' men out here.

                    Chloe gets out.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                         4.


                                     CHLOE
                         Better make sure I'm out there to catch a 
                         few.

                    Caister comes out.

                                     CAISTER
                         Why catch men, when you've got me?

                    She grins and hugs him. Lee gets out, followed by the dog, who 
                    crashes out with a loud woof.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Shut up, idiot, you'll get the farmer coming 
                         out here!

                                     CAISTER
                         Is this the area for the "great hike", then?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Sure is.

                    He begins pointing to the hedgerow on the side of a hilly field.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         This is where it starts, we shimmey across 
                         there and then...being careful not to fall 
                         in of course...we go up that hill, across, 
                         through a few more meadows like this then 
                         take a long, windy footpath which...
                              (turns around)
                         Leads out from that gap in the hedgerow.

                    Ben, who had been fumbling about in his pocket, suddenly lets out 
                    a cry of:

                                     BEN
                         Eureka!

                                     CHLOE
                         What?

                                     BEN
                         I've found it?

                                     LEE
                         What's it?

                    Ben takes out a slightly bent joint. He lights it, then slaps it 
                    inbetween his teeth, taking a long hit.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Shit! That's a joint...
                              (Slaps it out of his mouth)
                         Don't touch drugs near me!

                                     BEN
                              (Just catching it)
                         Why...you sonofabitch...

                                     CHOPPER
                         My cousin died of an overdose, I never wanna 
                         see an...

                    Ben leans over and tries to punch Chopper, Chopper casually blocks 
                    like it was nothing.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Never try to hit me, bitch.

                                     BEN
                         But you almost put out my joint! These things 
                         cost money, ya know.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Yeah, money just so they can mash your brain 
                         cells up, twat.

                                     BEN
                              (Taking a drag)
                         Just get lost, you goody-goody freak.

                    Chopper grimaces, trying to hold in his rage.

                                     CHLOE
                         Ben, don't be such a jackass.

                    Suddenly Ben swings at Chopper trying to catch him unawares, Chopper 
                    blocks it again.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Will you knock that off? It clearly isn't 
                         working.

                    Ben grins, getting slowly higher. He can't take his drugs.

                                     BEN
                         Shut up.

                    Ben leans back against the hedge, taking three long and smooth 
                    drags.

                                     LEE
                         It's raining too hard to do much else, shall 
                         we head back to the hotel now?

                                     CHLOE
                         Yeah we'd better, it's getting pretty late.

                                     CAISTER
                         Yeah, c'mon Ben.

                                     BEN
                         I'm not going until I get Chopper to fight 
                         me.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Looks like he's staying all night.

                                     BEN
                         To hell if I am! If it means you'll fight 
                         me.

                    As he says this TWO HANDS suddenly grab his shoulders from behind, 
                    he is knocked to the ground and his joint goes flying.

                                     BEN (CONT'D)
                         No! The weed!

                    As he goes down we get of glimpse of his ASSAILANT, it's none other 
                    than, GILES DANDRIGE, the shabby looking Farmer.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Farmer Giles?

                    Giles growls and leaps on top of Ben. Arms flailing.

                         G...get the motherf...off...

                    Lee, Caister and Chopper run forwards to help, Chloe looks 
                    astonished.

                                     CHLOE
                         Q...quick the farmer's gone mad!

                    Lee kicks Giles under the chin and he flops onto his back. Ben 
                    jumps up and dives for his joint, but a FARM-HAND comes out of 
                    nowhere and steps on his hand.

                                     BEN
                         Gaaagh!

                                     CHLOE
                         Look out! There's another one!

                    Caister, who is closest to the farm hand, spins and tries to kick 
                    him but the Farm-hand shuffles out of the way and goes for Ben, 
                    Ben struggles but to no avail as the farm-hand BITES his shoulder. 
                    Ben shouts.

                                     BEN
                         AIEEE!

                                     CAISTER
                         Get the hell off him!

                    Caister pushes the Farm-hand to the floor.

                                     CHOPPER
                         CHLOE! CHLOE! Grab the shovel from the buck 
                         of the truck, whoa that rhymes. Hurry!

                    Chloe does as she is told and throws the SHOVEL to Chopper, who 
                    makes a hurried catch. Meanwhile Lee is struggling with Giles, who 
                    is fighting with humongous strength.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Let's see how you like this!

                    Chopper the shovel and it hits Giles on the cheek, Giles falls 
                    onto his side. Chopper runs to the Farm-Hand who has THROWN Caister 
                    across the screen.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Caister...get away from him...he's mad.

                    Chopper SWINGS the shovel and hits Farm-hand in the side, he topples 
                    over and rolls into a ditch.  Meanwhile Giles jumps up and CHARGES 
                    at Lee, sending him skittering like a ten-pin.

                                     LEE
                              (Halfway through air)
                         AAGH!

                    Chloe moves over and pulls Ben out of the danger-zone while Caister 
                    SHOULDER-BARGES Giles out of the way.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Knock him into the ditch!

                    Caister grabs Giles' ankle and pulls hard, Giles falls wildly 
                    backward into the ditch.

                         in the town! We'll take him there!

                         Hell if I know, but they weren't anything 
                         good.

                              (Climbing into car)
                         He's here, it's all right, he was searching 
                         the hedges at the other side while we were 
                         fighting.

                    Chloe, while getting into the car turns and sees Giles and the 
                    Farm hand clambering out of the ditch.

                                     CHLOE
                         Oh lord! They're coming up!

                    Chopper takes a look over his shoulder.

                                     CHOPPER
                         C'MON! C'MON! Pull Ben inside...we have to 
                         get outa here.

                    All four doors SLAM close. Caister is now riding shotgun with 
                    Chopper

                    Chopperthe car across the road, in a wild doughnut, trying to avoid 
                    Giles, who bangs angrily at the windows.

                         C'mon...C'mon...

                    He gets sufficent speed and Giles is sent flying off the side of 
                    the truck. The Farm Hand makes a grab for the buck, but Choppers 
                    slowly and he falls flat on his face.

                         I don't know. Maybe it was the smell of drugs 
                         or him being loud.

                    He lights Ben's cigarette. Ben suckles on it, Chloe takes it away 
                    and Ben emits a cloud of smoke. Chloe splutters and rolls down the 
                    window a little bit.

                         Yeah. Here we are, Welcome to Skeddersville.

                                     LEE
                         Hear that, Ben? We're almost at the hospital.

                    Lee finds a bottle of fine quality brandy. He puts it to Ben's 
                    lips and he takes a long draught of it. Chloe rolls the window 
                    down and chucks the cigarette outside.

                                     CAISTER
                         Litterbug!

                                     CHLOE
                         Shut up, Caister, those fags burn up pretty 
                         quick.

                                     CAISTER
                         That's what they all say.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Hey, Dave, where is the hospital?

                    Caister opens his map and takes a look.

                                     CAISTER
                         Have you got to the florists yet?

                                     CHOPPER
                         The what...

                                     CHLOE
                         There it is.

                                     CAISTER
                         Turn right!

                    Chopper only just makes it.

                                     CAISTER (CONT'D)
                         And take the next road left and we'll be 
                         right on top of it.

                                     BEN
                         Am...I...g...onna...die?

                                     CHLOE
                         No! Don't ever think about it that way!

                                     BEN
                         I bet I am...I'm gonna...be...a...dead 
                         man...walking...I'M DEAD!

                                     LEE
                         Got a sedative?

                                     CHOPPER
                         In the buck.

                                     LEE
                         Whoa? You actually carry a sedative?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Mmm-hmm. Here we are...the hospital.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                    Chopper shoots down a short lane into the hospital parking lot, he 
                    narrowly avoids knocking a frail OLD LADY down.

                                     CAISTER
                         Heck, where did she come from?

                                     CHOPPER
                         No bloody idea, but old people like that 
                         shouldn't be allowed on the streets!

                    Chopper reverses into an emergency parking space. Him and Caister 
                    get out instantly.

                    EXT. PARKING LOT (HOSPITAL) --  NIGHT

                    Chloe and Lee's doors are open and then get out. Chopperin and 
                    grabs the madly flailing Ben.

                                     CHLOE
                         It's okay, it's okay. We're at the hospital 
                         now!

                                     BEN
                         Die...die...die

                    Chopper struggles with him, but Ben won't let himself go out of 
                    the back seats. Chopper groans.

                                     CHLOE
                         Wh...what can we do?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Well... 

                    Chopper leans in and PUNCHES Ben in the forehead. Ben drops like a 
                    stone, very unconscious.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         What? I couldn't get to the sedative quick 
                         enough. Caister, gimme a hand.

                    Chopper grabs Ben and HAULS him out, Caister takes his legs and 
                    they take him across the parking lot. Chloe and Lee at their heels.

                                     LEE
                         C'mon, Chloe open the doors.

                    Lee moves in and gives them a hand with Ben, who is beginning to 
                    wake. Chloe swings the double-doors open and they drag Ben into:

                    INT. RECEPTION AREA -- CONTINUOUS

                    The reception area is small and very clean and tidy. A young and 
                    slightly ditzy receptionist is at the counter. Two people are in 
                    the waiting room.

                                     RECEPTONIST
                         Oh dear! Is he a burns victim?

                                     LEE
                         No, we were scouting out our hiking route 
                         when the farmer and his friend attacked us. 
                         He bit him...
                              (points to Ben)
                         ...In the shoulder, he's lost a bit of blood.

                                     RECEPTONIST
                         I see. Well, um...
                              (Into Microphone)
                         Doctor Decter, get the stretchers up here we 
                         have a bite victim, he looks in pretty bad 
                         shape.

                                     DECTER (V.O.)
                         Okey-doke. 

                                     BEN
                         Oooh...

                                     RECEPTONIST
                         Are you feeling okay, sir?

                                     BEN
                         I...I'm gonna die...

                                     RECEPTONIST
                         Yes, but we can...

                                     CHOPPER
                         Ssh!

                                     RECEPTONIST
                         Well someone needs a time out, I think.

                    Suddenly two doctors appear from an emergency lift with a stretcher. 
                    DOCTOR MARVIN DECTER is a tall, black man in his thirties, DOCTOR 
                    JEAN PARKINSON is also in her thirties.

                                     DECTER
                         Is this the bitten man?

                                     RECEPTONIST
                         Yes. It looks an awful wound.

                                     BEN
                         P...please...kill...me...

                                     RECEPTONIST
                         No! It's against hospital principles.

                                     PARKINSON
                         C'mon let's get him on the stretcher.

                    Decter and Parkinson take him on the stretcher and sedate him. Ben 
                    flails for a few seconds but the sedative works quick and he is 
                    soon put to sleep.

                                     DECTER
                         One of you had better stay with him, the 
                         others had better go back to your hotel, you 
                         look tired.

                                     CAISTER
                         Err...I'll stay.

                                     LEE
                         Sure you don't want me to?

                                     CAISTER
                         I'll be okay.

                    Caister steps into the lift with the other two.

                                     CAISTER (CONT'D)
                         See ya later.

                    The doors slam shut on the four.

                         Well that's quick service.

                                     LEE
                         C'mon, let's get going to the hotel.

                                     RECEPTONIST
                         No wait. I must ask you for your friend's 
                         name, your hotel name and your names.

                                     LEE
                         Why?

                                     RECEPTONIST
                         For patient reasons and if the police want 
                         to question you.

                                     CHLOE
                         We're staying at the Ridgeback hotel. I'm 
                         Chloe Matherson, the patient is Ben Kingsley, 
                         the one with him is my boyfriend, Joel Caister 
                         and these two are Harry Deckard...

                         be sent to your hotel rooms some time later.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    INT. PICKUP TRUCK (MOVING) -- MOMENTS LATER

                    They all sit in silence as the Truck trundles down a wet road 
                    looking for their so far elusive hotel. Lee coughs, as if to ask 
                    for further conversation.

                         Well he's in the best care now, so hopefully, 
                         yeah.

                                     LEE
                         Chopper

                    Chopper snaps out of some kind of thoughtful trance.

                                     CHOPPER

                         Look there's the turning for the hotel!

                    Chopper takes it. A small, pokey little hotel comes into view.

                                     LEE (CONT'D)
                         Finally.

                         Hope the cops don't come when we're asleep.

                         worrying about Ben and all.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Well, as I said, he's in the best care mankind

                         Yeah, at least we've done our best.

                    Chopper stops the car.

                                     CHLOE
                         Well it looks a cosy little hotel.

                         Bad news, Lee, we gotta share a room. Forgot 
                         to tell ya.

                                     LEE
                         Well, as long as there are seperate beds I 
                         don't care.

                    He grins.

                                                                 DISSOLVE TO:

                    INT. PUB (SKEDDERSVILLE) -- NIGHT

                    The "Lion's tooth" is a small and very cramped up little pub, the 
                    air is full of smoke and old rock hits of the 60s and 70s are being 
                    played over and over again, at the minute The Bee Gee's "Stayin 
                    Alive" is in the background. It is on very low but we can still 
                    make out Barry Gibb's distinctive tone.

                    We pan over to JIM McDUFFY and JOHN FURLOUGH two off-duty cops. 
                    They sit on stools at the bar, eating pork scratchings and drinking 
                    fine, good quality ale. Both of them will soon be drunk.

                    FURLOUGH is thirty-five and is a towering giant of about six foot 
                    six, his hair is light brown and slightly flat. Although he is 
                    slightly over brawny he is still quite intelligent and of course a 
                    very good police officer.

                    McDuffy is also thirty-five, and although shorter he fills the 
                    "tough guy" image fairly well. He is very chatty and provides the 
                    brains to match Furlough's brawn. From his accent we can tell he 
                    has Scottish blood but probably comes from East Anglia. (Furlough 
                    comes from East Anglia too)

                                     FURLOUGH
                         So what happens after the guy crashes this 
                         Mr. Murphy's car?

                                     MCDUFFY
                              (Grinning)
                         Murphy goes out there with a shotgun. Shoots 
                         the guy and his wife.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         What? Just because of the car?

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Yeah! Doesn't that sound dumb to you?

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Well...yeah.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         I mean hell, just 'cos my brand new MG got 
                         smashed I wouldn't go on the warpath...

                                     BARMAN
                         C'mon, Jim, you know you would.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Actually yeah...but I wouldn't use a shotgun, 
                         I'd use a frickin' chaingun! Another pint, 
                         Doug.

                    He hands his empty glass to DOUG, the bald barman.

                                     DOUG
                         Okay.

                                     MCDUFFY
                              (Points to Furlough)
                         And whatever the lady's having.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Shut up, cocky.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Uht-oh, I'm starting to get drunk...

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Kelly won't be too happy.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         She goes out most nights, surely I should be 
                         allowed to ave a quick drink now and again?

                                     DOUG
                         Quick?

                                     MCDUFFY
                         All right, maybe not quick.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Doug, what would you do if Monica was having 
                         an affair?

                                     DOUG
                              (Not missing a beat)
                         Have a threesome.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         C'mon, Doug, be sensible.

                                     DOUG
                         Okay, I'd divorce her.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         You wouldn't do jackshit? Just let her 
                         continue?

                                     DOUG
                         Yeah, basically.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Silly fool.

                                     MCDUFFY
                              (Yawns)
                         Ah-ha-. Think I had better be getting back. 
                         Want a lift?

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Yeah, I'd better be getting home...only thing 
                         is I left my house-keys at the station.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Oh, you can crash out on my sofa...c'mon.

                    McDuffy and Furlough finish their drinks.

                         See ya at the weekend sometime.

                                     FURLOUGH
	                 Yeah.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    INT. MCDUFFY'S CAMPERVAN -- NIGHT

                    McDuffy and Furlough climb into McDuffy's sky blue Volkswagen 
                    "hippiewagon". McDuffy spins the key in the ignition and reverses 
                    into the road.

                    EXT. ROAD -- CONTINUOUS

                    The Campervan comes out of the road.

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.)
                         Can I turn the radio on?

                                     MCDUFFY (O.S.)
                         Yeah, put a CD on.

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.)
                         Which one?

                                     MCDUFFY (O.S.)
                         Try the Christmas songs one.

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.)
                         Christmas? That's bloody ages away.

                                     MCDUFFY (O.S.)                             *
                         So?

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.)
                         Fine.

                                     MCDUFFY (O.S.)
                         It's in the CD rack.

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.)
                         I kinda guessed.

                    The Campervan takes a left turning and goes past two sleepy rows 
                    of houses, not a single light is on in any of them. As we do a 
                    SILHOUETTE comes out of a dark alleyway.

                         Slade rock, don't the...

                    BANG! The Silhouette throws itself against the side of the car, 
                    arms flailing at it. It almost dents it.

                                     MCDUFFY (O.S.) (CONT'D)                    *

                         Who is that idiot?

                    McDuffy spins the car and the back hits the Silhouette KNOCKING 
                    HIM O.S

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.) (CONT'D)
                         Must be some junkie, c'mon, let's get going.

                         If he's smashed the car...he's dead.

                    McDuffy speeds off.

                              (Yawns)
                         Gosh, I'm tired.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    INT. LEE & CHOPPERL ROOM -- NIGHT

                    Both of them are awake, unable to get any sleep for the worrying 
                    about Ben's wounds.  Chopper is boringly flicking through a copy 
                    of the "Zombie Survival Handbook" while Lee makes various jotted 
                    drawings. Lee turns and looks at a clock radio, it reads "1:03". 
                    The dog lies at Chopper.

                                     LEE
                         Think this bloody sergeant will ever come?

                         Who knows.

                                     LEE
                         Not me.

                    A loud knock on the door.

                                     LEE (CONT'D)
                         That must be him.

                    Lee unbolts the door. Chloe and another man enter

                    INT. WAITING ROOM -- CONTINUOUS

                    Caister sits on a scuffled old green chair while drinking a can of 
                    Coke. He yawns and stretches. A woman stares at him from across 
                    the room. She is about thirty, and very sexy with long curly brown
		    hair.

                                     WOMAN
                         Who are you waiting for?

                         A friend.

                         No.

                                     WOMAN
                         What happened?

                                     CAISTER
                         We were scouting out the area for our hike 
                         tomorrow morning when one of our friends, 
                         Ben, was attacked by these two men. They bit 
                         a large chunk out of his arm and we had to 
                         take him there.

                                     WOMAN
                         What happened to your other friends?

                                     CAISTER
                         Oh them and my girlfriend are back at the 
                         hotel.

                                     WOMAN
                         I see. What happened to these attackers?

                                     CAISTER
                         Hell knows. They just disappeared. One of 
                         our friends hit one of them and we jumped 
                         into our car, as they were running after us--
                         pure madness.

                    Suddenly a doctor appears from some double doors. He is DR. MOTFERD,

                    on the outskirts of town, with it is a small, abandoned barn. The 
                    Campervan pulls up outside. McDuffy and Furlough jump out.

                         Very funny.

                    McDuffy takes out his house key, as he goes to put it in the lock-
                    Furlough finds a stick-it note pinned to the door.

                         Ben, they hacked him to the floor and bit 
                         his shoulder. Me, Chopper and Joel struggled 
                         with them for a bit and managed to get away...

                         No. Chopper hit of them and he rolled into 
                         the ditch, the other tried to grab the car

                              (Stern tone)
                         Chopper, what do you know about those people 
                         who attacked us?

                                     LEE
                         Yeah, you know more than what you're letting 
                         on.

                     Chopper looks around, slightly surprised--Even the dog is looking 
                    at him strangely.

                         Yes, you do.

                    Chopper drops the "Zombie survival guide" and turns to the others 
                    with a tired gaze.

                    Caister collects his drink and unscrews it, taking a long drink.

                    INT. OPERATING THEATRE -- CONTINUOUS

                    Inside the white and slightly surreal operating theatres a few 
                    doctors, including Parkinson and Decter have gathered around Ben, 
                    trying to make something out of his wound. The machine begins 
                    beeping loud.

                                     MOTFERD
                         We're losing him! Quick!

                    DR. MARROW runs to those electric heart-thingies (Heart-stimulators) 
                    he pulls them free of the machine and throws them to two other 
                    doctors.  Motferd and DR. LOCKHAN, they put them on Ben's stomach 
                    and PUMP AN ELECTRIC SHOCK into him. Ben shivers for a second, but 
                    remains dead. Marrow is medium-sized, thin and with long goofy teeth.

                                     AD-LIB
                         C'mon! Do it again! We can't let this one 
                         die on us! Quick!

                    They shock him again. The machine begins to whur to life.

                                     PARKINSON
                         We have a faint heartbeat.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Should we try again?

                                     PARKINSON
                         Yes and hurry...

                    The GIVE IT ANOTHER GO. Suddenly Ben's heartbeat scores red high, 
                    the machine begins beeping so loud it EXPLODES in a small puff of 
                    yellow smoke.

                                     MARROW
                              (Jumping away)
                         Oh hell!

                    The machine falls in front of the door, blocking it slightly.

                                     BEN
                         AAAAARRRRRGGGHHH!

                    Ben jumps up, bursting free from some restraining straps. He charges 
                    at Dr. Marrow, who SMACKS him in the face with a metal bar. Ben 
                    CRASHES to the floor. Lockhan jumps ontop of him, pinning him down 
                    with his foot.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         CHECK HIS PULSE!

                    Motferd runs over and puts two fingers to Ben's neck.

                                     MOTFERD
                         No pulse! He should be dead!

                    WITH FRENZIED FORCE BEN (now Undead) SLAMS UPWARDS, sending Motferd 
                    and Lockhan flying. Meanwhile the other doctors are trying to move 
                    the pulse machine from the door. FREEZEFRAME.

                         I suppose it's time to tell you.

                              (Confused)
                         Tell us what?

                                     CHOPPER (V.O.)
                         When I was just a toddler I had nightmares 
                         about people who came back from the dead and 
                         killed everyone but me. As I got older I 
                         fought more and more and lasted longer.

                                     LEE (V.O.)
                         So that's why you have some many films and 
                         books about them?

                                     CHOPPER (V.O.)
                         Yeah. When I was thirteen I went on holiday 
                         to America and met George Romero, he was at 
                         a video signing. We got talking and I realized 
                         who those people were...

                                     LEE (V.O.)
                         So you think the people who attacked Ben 
                         were Zombies?

                                     CHOPPER (V.O.)
                         Yes.

                                     CHLOE (V.O.)
                         He's mad...

                                     LEE (V.O.)
                         Well it does make sense...

                                     CHOPPER (V.O.)
                         I guess it must be my job to protect us from 
                         these things...

                    Exit Caister. Celine slouches down into her chair, looking slightly

                                     CAISTER (O.S.)
                         Is everything okay in here?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         OPEN THE DOOR! HE'S MAD! HE'S MAD!

                    EXT. CORRIDOR -- CONTINUOUS

                    Caister is confused. He YANKS the door open, as he does SCREAMING 
                    AND CRASHING CAN BE HEARD. When Ben opens the door he finds the 
                    Operating Theatre is a warzone. 
				 the only survivor jumps 
                    out, just as Motferd is grabbed by Marrow and Ben (both infected). 
                    They pull him into the room.

                     

                    Lockhan grabs the stunned Caister's arm.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Go! Go! Go!

                                     CAISTER
                         What is going on? There's blood everywhere.

                    Marrow jumps out and SMASHES Caister onto the floor.

                                     CAISTER (CONT'D)
                         AAGGHH!

                    Lockhan, halfway to the end of the corridor all ready, spins to 
                    see Marrow TACKLING his prey (Joel Caister) to the floor.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         YOU SHOULD HAVE RUN! FOOL!

                    Lockhan turns and SPRINTS back to Caister, he KICKS Marrow in the 
                    chin, knocking him off. Marrow lands on his side, growling and 
                    flailing his arms wildly.

                                     MARROW
                         GRRRRR!

                    Lockhan grabs a broken Chair leg and DRIVES it into Marrow's 
                    forearm, sending him off balance and bleeding. Lockhan retracts 
                    the chair leg and pulls Caister up.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         C'mon...we have to get outa here...

                    They turn and disappear through the double doors just as a party 
                    of doctors and Patients come out from a side-door.

                                     IMPORTANT DOCTOR
                         What is going on? Dr. Marrow?

                    Him and his party edge towards Marrow, who is flailing madly. 
                    Suddenly MOTFERD and BEN jump out from the door, with a few other 
                    INFECTED following. 

                                     IMPORTANT DOCTOR (CONT'D)
                         AAIEEE!

	            IMPORTANT DOCTOR runs and manages to survive but his colleages who
		    include a certain PHILLIP DELLERMAN are slammed to the ground and
		    eaten in a very claustrophobic scene.

                    EXT. CORRIDOR#2 -- CONTINUOUS

                    Lockhan and Caister burst through the doors and TUMBLE into an 
                    almost identical corridor.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Quick to the lift!

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                                     CAISTER
                              (Coughs)
                         Okay.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         He didn't hurt you did he?

                                     CAISTER
                         No, I just have asthma and I can't sprint 
                         very well.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Oh, I see. Anyway, c'mon...

                    Caister and Lockhan take off down the corridor, the SCREAMS of the 
                    INFECTED not far behind.

                    They reach a lift, Lockhan continually JAMS on the "bottom" button.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         C'mon, c'mon.

                    The doors burst open and the INFECTED pour in, running into various 
                    WARDS and siderooms, they are all moving very fast (Like the Zombies 
                    in Dawn of the Dead Remake and 28 days later).

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                              (Panicking)
                         HURRY! HURRY!

                    An Infected one-legged Patient HOBBLES towards them, tripping and 
                    growling every other step. Lockhan begins BANGING the lift doors 
                    in frustration.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         Come on! Come on! Baby work!

                    An alarm begins to go off somewhere.

                                     CAISTER
                         What's that?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         The fire alarm.
                              (Pause)
                         I'm err...Doctor Remus Lockhan by the way.

                                     CAISTER
                              (Not seeing how this is 
                              relevant)
                         Okay...I'm Joel Caister.

                    The one legged patient makes a grab for Caister, it misses as the 
                    LIFT DOORS PING OPEN. Both survivors jump in.

                                     LIFT
                         Doors opening.

                    As they enter the Infected begin to notice and pour after them. 
                    Lockhan presses the SHUT button.

                                     LIFT
                         Doors closing.

                                     CAISTER
                         Those people...they're just like the ones 
                         who attacked Ben.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         We know, it must have been him who infected 
                         them with the "Zombification" virus.

                                     CAISTER
                         The what?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         It started out as isolated incidents round 
                         the side of town, our Cops were given firearms 
                         by the government and we contained it, or so 
                         we thought but your friend has now spread 
                         it.

                                     CAISTER
                         So what does it do?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         It Zombifies people.

                                     CAISTER
                         Okay...

                                     LOCKHAN
                              (Frustrated)
                         It kills people and then brings them back to 
                         life with fast speeds and rage power, but it 
                         only lasts for a short while and eventually 
                         they get slower. But even then they are still 
                         lethal, a single bite can spread it.

                                     CAISTER
                         Oh.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Sure you weren't bitten?

                                     CAISTER
                              (Serious)
                         Positive.

                         CELINE? CELINE?

                    No answer.

                    Lockhan moves towards a payphone.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Got a twenty p?

                                     CAISTER
                         Surely on a doctor's wage you should have 
                         one?

                    Caister flicks him a twenty. Lockhan takes it, dials the number of 
                    the local station and puts it to his ear.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    A three-roomed "shack" like building allegedly called a police 
                    station. P.C ALUN CARTER, a short, stocky man with an obsession 
                    for swords, sits with his legs propped up on the desk. He's working 
                    the night shift. A kettle boils O.S. Carter gets up to tend to 
                    it when:

                    THE PHONE RINGS!

                    Annoyed, Carter presses the "SPEAKER" button. Lockhan's voice is 
                    projected into the room.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Hello? Is this Skeddersville police station?

                                     CARTER
                         Yes, this is PC Alun Carter speaking.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Alun, it's Dr. Lockhan at the hospital.

                                     CARTER
                         Ah, Remus, what's wrong?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         It's "the virus" a bitten man came in earlier 
                         and he's infected the whole damned place, I 
                         think myself and the man's friend are the 
                         only ones left.

                                     CARTER
                         Is this some kind of a wind up?

                    A SCREAM AND THE PHONE CUTS OUT.

                                     CARTER
                         Some guy from the hospital called, he says 
                         the place has been infected with..."The 
                         virus", fancy taking a look?

                                     RICHARDSON (V.O.)
                         Yes--but it's probably just a wind-up.

                         That's what I said, but then there was a 
                         scream and the phone cut off.

                         Well I'll go take a look.

                    Carter clicks the radio monitor onto standby. Then he moves to 
                    the kettle.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         What d'you prefer a red head or a blonde?

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Is that even a proper question? Blondes have 
                         more fun.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Mmm. I see your point.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         So you should.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Yeah whatever.

                    McDuffy finds a box of Sleeping tablets.

                                     MCDUFFY (CONT'D)
                         Should we?

                                     FURLOUGH
                         We've had too much drink to try anything 
                         else.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    INT. WAITING ROOM -- PREVIOUS TIME

                    Lockhan is on the phone while Caister looks about.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         ...are the only ones left...

                    SUDDENLY LOCKHAN IS KNOCKED OUT OF FRAME BY A BLUR OF MOTION.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         AAAGGHHH!

                    The phone runs out of money.

                                     CAISTER
                         Lockhan?

                    The Zombie Celine!!! is attacking Lockhan, trying to get a good 
                    bite at his neck.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         HELP ME, PLEASE!

                                     CAISTER
                         Celine!

                                     LOCKHAN
                              (Struggling)
                         It's not her anymore! Help!

                    Caister yanks the PHONE RECIEVER from the wall and SMASHES Celine 
                    on the head with it, she loosens her grip and Lockhan JUMPS up, he 
                    gets her on his shoulder and SLAMS her into a heap on the ground. 
                    Another door jolts open and THE RECEPTIONIST SHOOTS OUT AFTER THEM. 
                    Lockhan TACKLES her in mid-run, sending her spinning wildly three-
                    foot into the air and she lands on a coffee table.

                    Hundreds of OK and Chat magazines go flying with her. The table 
                    snaps in half.

                    Meanwhile Celine gets back up and CHARGES after them. Caister HITS 
                    her with the reciever again, she TUMBLES head over heels. Caister 
                    lands with a FLOP on her back and beats her with the reciever. 
                    Meanwhile the Receptionist begins to get up.

                    Lockhan's ears prick up to the sound of screaming.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         They're coming!

                    Caister stands up and drops the gored receiver.

                                     CAISTER
                         To the main doors!

                    Both of them rush forward, jumping over a discarded bench to the 
                    main doors. As they reach them Lockhan SCREAMS in misery.

                                     CAISTER (CONT'D)
                         What's wrong?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         It's the doors! They've sealed themselves!

                                     CAISTER
                         Why?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Because that alarm was the burglar alarm!

                                     CAISTER
                         W...what..?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         It's a...

                    The Infected burst through the doors, BLOOD flies with them. Lockhan 
                    and Caister turn. Face to face with death.

                                     CAISTER
                         We have to get to somewhere safe!

                                     LOCKHAN
                         The receptionist's office!

                    Lockhan and Caister rush into the open door. It closes and we hear 
                    the door being locked.

                    Some "Zombies" prowl over to the place, but don't do anything more. 
                    While the others RUN towards the windows, SMASHING them with their 
                    wild fists. Soon Spiderweb cracks are made, they get bigger and 
                    bigger until some windows smash and the Infected BURST out through 
                    them.

                    Lockhan and Caister watch through the bulletproof office window. 
                    We PAN ALL THE WAY IN until we are inside the:

                    INT. RECEPTIONIST'S OFFICE -- CONTINUOUS

                    Lockhan dives to the phone. There is no dialtone.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         NNOOO! D'you have a mobile phone?

                                     CAISTER
                         It's err...in my friend's car.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Oooh...we're doomed.

                                     CAISTER
                         Where's yours?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         In my locker.

                    Caister coughs.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         Is your asthma playing up?

                                     CAISTER
                         N...no.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         What's wrong?

                                     CAISTER
                              (Coughs)
                         Nothing.

                    Lockhan nods, he sees a fallen picture with a claw hammer and two 
                    nails next to it. He sneaks up to it and quickly pockets the Hammer.

                                     CAISTER (CONT'D)
                         Ah...that's better. I've stopped now.

                    Caister turns to Lockhan.

                                     CAISTER (CONT'D)
                         Doc, I...I was bitten...back there when Marrow 
                         jumped me....

                                     LOCKHAN
                              (Face flashing with slight 
                              alarm)
                         I know. I knew it from your first cough.

                                     CAISTER
                         How long do I have left.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         It depends. Where were you bitten?

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                    Caister lifts his shirt to reveal a bit wound around his shoulder.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         Oooh...

                    Lockhan grabs Caister from behind and SLAMS him into the sink.

                                     CAISTER
                         D...doctor Lockhan?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         This is for your own good, Joel...

                    He slams Caister down into the chair and finds a roll of string. 
                    He ties Caister's hands and legs together tightly.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         I'm sorry, but there's no cure that we know 
                         of.  I can't afford to lose my life because 
                         of you, back in London I've got a wife and 
                         two kids.
                              (Pause)
                         I need to see my family again, Joel.

                    Caister nods.

                                     CAISTER
                              (Solemn)
                         I...I understand.

                    Lockhan surveys the scene, many Zombies are busting out through 
                    the windows and into the street beyond. A living Patient opens the 
                    doors and enters, the Infected see him and charge, but he double-
                    backs and goes back the way he came. A few follow.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Hope he gets out.

                                     CAISTER
                         S...someone should.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         How many times were you bitten in that same 
                         place?

                                     CAISTER
                         T...twice.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         I see, that may make the change quicker.
                              (He takes out the hammer)
                         I'd better be ready.

                                     CAISTER
                         Y...you're gonna kill me?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         No. I'll wait until you're fully infected. I 
                         couldn't kill you anyway.

                                     CAISTER
                         But they'd hear the commotion and turn their 
                         attentions to us...

                                     LOCKHAN
                         I don't know what to think.

                                     CAISTER
                         Couldn't you cut the bite wound and infection 
                         out of my arm?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         If you'd have told me sooner, you'd have 
                         been okay.
                              (Motions to Hammer claw)
                         I could try but I think you're too far gone.

                    Lockhan turns to inspect the room. As he does the wall suddenly 
                    opens beside him, to reveal a hidden Fire Exit.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         Who the...

                    The Receptionist Zombie comes in, evidently remembering something 
                    from a past life. Lockhan panics and tries to block the door.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         Caister...

                    He turns only to find out that CAISTER IS INFECTED and madly chewing 
                    at his ropes.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                              (To self)
                         This is it...

                    Lockhan won't die without a fight though.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         COME AND GET ME!

                    He spins and SMASHES the Receptionist with the hammer, she hits a 
                    shelf and breaks it, a hellload of manilla wallets and files hail 
                    down on the table and ontop of Caister. Lockhan hits the 
                    Receptionist, behind him the other door SNAPS open. He turns and 
                    flees into the passegeway the receptionist used... Just as some 
                    Infected, lead by an Undead Hospital guard enter.

                    EXT. FIRESTAIRS -- CONTINUOUS

                    Lockhan and his trusty hammer arrive on a set of blazing red 
                    firestairs, he jumps up and grabs the handle.

                    EXT. ROOF -- CONTINUOUS

                    Lockhan arrives on the roof of the hospital.

                    INT. CAMPERVAN -- MORNING

                    McDuffy and Furlough have just woken up.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Ah, it looks like a beautiful morning.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Yeah. Got a flask of coffee?

                                     MCDUFFY
                         No, we'd better go back and find my house 
                         keys.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Yeah.
                              (Pause)
                         Wait a sec...

                    He fishes into his pocket and finds his HOUSE KEYS!

                                     MCDUFFY
                         YOU IDIOT!

                                     FURLOUGH
                              (Grinning)                                        *
                         Um...sorry.

                    Furlough opens the back door and climbs out. McDuffy goes into the 
                    front seats.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         I'll pick you up in about half an hour.

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.)
                         Okay, sorry 'bout the keys thing.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         'Sokay.

                    McDuffy reverses and drives off down the road. He flicks the radio 
                    on but recieves a BURST OF STATIC. He soon flicks it off.

                    INT. FURLOUGH'S HOME -- DAY

                    Furlough enters his small bungalow. He has a deep yawn then gets 
                    round to putting the blinds up and light floods into the room.  
                    Furlough looks out at the sunny garden for a bit then turns to the 
                    TV set, he puts the plug in its socket and clicks it on.

                    A football match is on. The score is Arsenal 5 Manchester United 
                    1. As Furlough watches everything suddenly flicks to black.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         What the...? I was watching tha...

                    Furlough looks dumbfounded, he reaches for his phone and picks it 
                    up.

                                     FURLOUGH
                              (Self)
                         No tone!

                    Furlough moves over to a plaque that hangs on the wall. He smashes 
                    the glass and a Mirouko double-barrelled shotgun falls out.  
                    Furlough catches and pops it open, he takes a box of fine Winchester 
                    rabbit-shooting cartridges and flicks them in.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                         Glad I got my BASC membership renewed.

                    Furlough opens a large chest by his fireplace, takes out a can of 
                    beer, two Berettas and some clips. He lies them next to Shotgun on 
                    the floor.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                         Ah...Carlsberg export.

                    He pops the can and guzzle the beer down.

                    ANGLE ON

                    A small trash basket as the empty can lands inside.

                    BACK TO SCENE

                    Furlough opens a cabinet on the roof, throws out a nifty looking 
                    MACHETE which is inside a scabbard, it hits the ground followed by 
                    a .38 and a 9MM Uzi. A few clips follow. Furlough jumps back down 
                    (he was standing on an armchair) as he does a few INFECTED begin 
                    to bang at the windows.  Denting them very hard.

                    Furlough turns to eye them. He flips them the bird. They stop, one 
                    of them slowly raises his middle finger.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                         How dare you!

                    Furlough grabs the Mirouko and FIRES. Bursting the glass and sending 
                    the offending Zombie back. A window behind begins to smash. Furlough 
                    fires his final round at the window. KNOCKING back the attacker. 
                    Another window smashes, Furlough clicks the safety off of the Uzi 
                    and FIRES madly at it. Knocking the Zombie back.

                    He fires at the main window, tearing some of them back. But they 
                    keep getting up.

                    Furlough BLASTS the TV out of existence. He grabs the two BERETTAS 
                    and madly fires, but the Infected are beginning to get inside, he 
                    is grabbed from behind by two of them, they try to bite him but 
                    Furlough hits it with one of the Berettas under its chin.

                    He ROLLS sideways while FIRING both Berretas like mad.

                    INT. HALLWAY -- CONTINUOUS

                    Furlough JUMPS into the grey-carpeted hallway. He SLAMS the door 
                    shut behind him and dashes to a METALLIC DOOR labelled "GARAGE". 
                    He fumbles with a pair of keys and unlocks the door.

                    THE INFECTED BREAK THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR (which is behind him).

                    But Furlough ESCAPES into the garage.

                    INT. GARAGE -- CONTINUOUS

                    Furlough SCRAMBLES into the garage, firing a quick UZI BLAST at 
                    the attacking undead. Knocking a few back. He FIRES the Mirouko, 
                    BLOWING apart most of his hallway.

                    Furlough SLAMS the door shut on the INVADERS. He quickly LOCKS the 
                    door with his key and steps FULLY into the dark garage, breathing 
                    heavily.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Damn, that was fun.

                    He looks around. Before grabbing a PICK-AXE. He turns, surveying 
                    the room and looks to a green TRIUMPH 650 that sits in the middle 
                    of the garage.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)

                         What'cha say baby? Fancy a ride?

                    Furlough SLIPS a HELMET on and takes a REMOTE (for the garage door). 
                    He jumps onto the bike, KICKS up the engine and presses the UP 
                    button. There's a loud MECHANICAL WHIR and the door SLIDES up.

                    INT. GARAGE -- DAY

                    The DOOR slowly slides up.

                              (Muffled)
                         Here...goes...nothin'...

                    Furlough KICKS the bike into gear, and swinging the PICK-AXE in 
                    one hand he RACES OUT. Spinning into a quick wheelie.

                    EXT. SMALL STREET -- DAY

                    Furlough comes into a small street, with little houses (like his) 
                    running down each side. He GLIDES past the picket fencing that 
                    runs round his garden and into the road. He watches one of his 
                    NEIGHBOURS being chased by two zombies.

                                     NEIGHBOUR
                         Mr. Furlough! Help!

                    The neighbour's name is TATWELL.

                                     TATWELL
                         Please!

                    Furlough SHOOTS off and SMACKS the zombie in the back with the 
                    pick axe, the zombie goes flying and Tatwell RUSHES off down a 
                    small passageway.

                                     FURLOUGH
                              (Muffled)
                         WAIT! WAIT! I can give you a lift!

                    But Tatwell is long gone.

                    Furlough RIDES on, but zombies block the way ahead--a HUGE CROWD 
                    OF THEM.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                              (Muffled)
                         Fucking bollocks!

                    He SWINGS back (narrowly avoiding a startled cat) and crashes past 
                    a few zombies, HITTING at them with the pick axe. BLOOD.

                    But a CROWD OF UNDEAD block the other end.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                              (Muffled)
                         Fucking bollocks strike two.

                    Furlough PULLS A HIGH WHEELIE and then DROPS the front of his bike 
                    onto a zombie. SQUELCH!

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                              (Muffled)
                         Oh...yeah...it's ya birthday!

                    Furlough veers past three ZOMBIES and SWINGS his pick axe at them, 
                    SCATTERING them and killing one. Furlough THROWS the Pick axe at 
                    the crowd and DRAWS an UZI.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                              (Muffled)
                         What would Evil Knevil do right now?

                    Furlough FIRES a BURST at the zombies, slides the uzi away and 
                    takes up the MACHETE.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                              (Muffled)
                         Mmm...

                    He drives past a wheelie-bin and KICKS it over with his BIG BOOT. 
                    The WALL of the UNDEAD nears him, Furlough spins a 180, CUTTING 
                    them with his machete and drives back down the road. He SWINGS 
                    back round and RACES forward.

                    Furlough HITS the wheelie bin MID-SPEED and SAILS high over them, 
                    but the 650 LANDS heavily and FURLOUGH GOES FLYING, dropping his 
                    berettas.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                              (Helmet cracking)
                         SHIIIIIT!

                    Furlough rolls a few times, then stops next to a street lamp, he 
                    spins in time to see the FLESH EATERS RUNNING at him.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                         Oh! Not fair! Not fair at all!

                    Furlough pulls himself up, but as he does a SIREN suddenly RINGS 
                    out. He turns and sees Sgt. Brodski's crusier.

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                         Get in!

                    Furlough doesn't need asking twice. He turns and RUSHES into the 
                    car.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         I'm coming back for the bike.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Just hurry up, man. 

                    INT. LEE & CHOPPER'S LITTLE ROOM -- MORNING

                    It is dark inside the room as the curtains have drawn. Gentle 
                    breathing can be heard from the two immaceuletly made beds.  So 
                    far our two hiking heroes and their dog haven't woken up to the 
                    fact that the town is undersiege.

                    RICHARDSON, a buff looking officer in his fifties lies inside the 
                    cruiser. He has been the victim of a Zombie attack.  He's DEAD but 
                    could TURN any minute.

                                                                     FADE TO:

                    EXT. ROAD OUTSIDE TOWN -- MORNING

                    A HITCHHIKER stands on the side of the road. He looks as if he has 
                    been trying to thumb a lift into town for ages, he's tired after a 
                    long, long walk. He takes a deep breath and we see his breath mist 
                    up into the air. SOUND OF A CAR ENGINE.

                    The Hitchiker grins. And waves to A POLICE CRUISER as it trundles 
                    across a fork in the road.

                                     HITCHIKER
                              (American)
                         Hey!

                    The Cruiser SLOWS down next to the Hitchiker. COLLYMORE, is the 
                    young and sharp-witted cop inside.

                         Headed into town?

                                     HITCHIKER
                         Yeah.

                         Hop in. I've just come back from leave in 
                         the city, girlfriend's in hospital.

                    The Hitchiker comes inside.

                    Collymore hits the accelerator and moves off.

                         I think the boss was trying to contact me, 
                         only thing is the sound is broken on my radio. 
                         I'm just hoping it's not urgent.

                         lot of trouble, there used to be an animal 
                         testing lab on the outskirts of town. Some 
                         protestors think it's still there and try to 
                         bomb it and stuff.

                         Cameron. But most people call me by my surname--

                         Just drifting. Decided to come abroad for a 
                         change. Better than a boring old holiday to

                         villages.

                         Skedders was the guy who first built the

                              (Laughs)
                         I suppose he's like the town hero. Either 
                         him or Sergeant Brodski. Brodski is my boss 
                         by the way.

                         Back when I was about your age I guess. About 
                         ten years ago...one of the flat blocks had a 
                         raging fire inside, the fire engine was late, 
                         so Brodski went in there and single-handedly 
                         rescued six people.
                              (Pause)
                         His wife died in that fire, they later found 
                         out it was an arson attack. After that he 
                         became more and more devoted to the job.

                         Dunno, but he looked a bit seedy.

                    the horror.

                    EXT. SKEDDERSVILLE -- CONTINUOUS

                    As a SURVIVOR runs up to the cruiser and bangs on the back doors.

                         LET ME IN! LET ME IN!

                    A group of ZOMBIES are getting antagonizingly close to him.

                    He BANGS harder.

                                     SURVIVOR (CONT'D)
                         Please!

                    INT. POLICE CRUISER -- CONTINUOUS

                    As the STUNNED Collymore unlocks the doors. The Survivor yanks the 
                    door open and pulls himself in.

                    He SLAMS the door in the faces of the INFECTED.

                    Collymore locks the doors. Both him and the Survivor are breaking 
                    into cold sweats.

                         mad! Pure crazy. I was in my neighbour's 
                         house borrowing some milk when they smashed 
                         through the window. And killed Casey and her

                         Go! Move!

                    Collymore SPRINGS into action, TWISTING the cruiser around. BLOOD 
                    SPLATTERS up the sides as he hits one of the ghouls. The BODY 
                    smashes onto THE SUNSCREEN, SMASHING IT.

                    The Zombie's bodyless head falls in through the smashed glass.

                    We see the Police Cruiser as it SPINS past a group of ghouls, 
                    CRASHING into a mailbox.

                    A POSTMAN ZOMBIE is hit by a shower of letters.

                    A woman in a long T-SHIRT comes out of her house and looks around. 
                    The INFECTED CHASE HER.

                    CRASH!

                    A loud crashing noise and everything is split up, people fall around 
                    and no one knows where they are.

                    INT. POLICE STATION -- MOMENTS LATER

                    A small congregation of bored survivors have taken refuge in the 
                    small station. At the moment they seem to be pretty safe, but how 
                    long it will last for is anyone's guess. McDuffy, Carter, Furlough 
                    and Sgt. Brodski stand around loading guns and trying to make sense 
                    of the whole thing.

                    While the non-cops just sit there and absent mindedly mumble to 
                    themselves. Among them we can see JOEL and LORNA BUCK. A fairly 
                    average looking couple. The reason why everyone is so well armed 
                    is because they (lorna and joel) own a gunshop and were able to 
                    get to some supplies before being evacuated.

                    HANNAH is Furlough's brunette sister, she sits to the left of Joel. 
                    Next to her is RED WILLIAMS, a big red haired (surprise, surprise) 
                    guy who owns a big rig company.

                    FINCHLEY is a bad-tempered little punk while his partner (in love) 
                    JULIAN is a succesful accountant.

                    Tatwell is Furlough's scruffy neighbour and Museum curator (the 
                    town has a small museum).

                    And last but not least, DERRICK MATHERSON and DON SLUDWELL are off-
                    duty mechanics.

                    We move to the four cops. Carter is playfully swinging Furlough's 
                    machete around while they talk.

                         Hey, c'mon, we need to get some enjoyment 
                         from somewhere.

                                     JULIAN
                         Honestly, Finchley, you're so pessimistic!

                         The only thing good about life is death, you 
                         just gotta accept it.

                    INT. HOTEL ROOM -- MORNING

                    ANGLE ON

                    Chloe, as her eyes SNAP OPEN.

                    FULL SHOT -- HOTEL ROOM

                    She looks around the darkened room for a second, then rubs her 
                    eyes. She turns to a clock.

                                     CHLOE
                         Ten thirty! Whoa! I've missed breakfast.

                    She gets up and pulls the CURTAINS open, she doesn't look outside 
                    as she's in a hurry.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    EXT. CORRIDOR -- MOMENTS LATER

                    Chloe steps outside, she YAWNS and heads to Lee and Chopper's room.

                    She KNOCKS.

                                                                 QUICKCUT TO:

                    INT. LEE & CHOPPERL ROOM -- CONTINUOUS

                    Lee and Chopper suddenly AWAKE.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Wh...what was that?

                                     LEE
                         Dunno.
                              (Looks at clock)
                         Hell! We've overslept.

                                     CHLOE (V.O.)
                         Hey, you guys awake?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Oh, Chloe!

                    He slips on a pair of Levi's and a vest.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Now coming.

                    He heads to the door and unlocks it. Lee begins to open the 
                    curtains, but he too doesn't look outside.

                    Chloe steps into the room and Chopper shuts the door.

                                     CHLOE
                         It's quiet out there.

                                     CHOPPER
                              (Mock creepy)
                         Too quiet.

                                     LEE
                         Maybe that Invasion of yours has started.

                    Suddenly the HOTEL MANAGER enters.

                                     CHLOE
                         Morning, Mr. Dennis.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                    Mr. Dennis walks towards her. He's been INFECTED for a long time 
                    and is now moving slower.

                                     CHLOE (CONT'D)
                         Mr. Dennis?

                    Dennis suddenly LURCHES forward, tries to bite into Chloe's shoulder---
                    but CHOPPER DASHES FORWARD and KICKS Dennis in the chin---knocks 
                    him onto his back.

                                     LEE
                         Okay...maybe it has started...

                                     CHOPPER
                         Believe me next time!
                              (Pause)
                         Err...if there is a next time...

                                     LEE
                         Is he dead?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Nope. He's undead.

                    Dennis CRAWLS to his feet, ARMS FLAIL.

                    Chopper DUCKS under his arms and GRABS the fat man's waist, CRASHING 
                    him HEAD FIRST into the WALL.

                    Lee grabs a SUITCASE. He SWINGS it and it catches Dennis ATOP the 
                    head, Dennis crashes onto his side. Chloe picks up a VASE and 
                    SMASHES it over Mr. Dennis' head. He is dead AGAIN.

                    They take a step back.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Wow, I'm good.

                                     CHLOE
                         Oh! Do you think Joel and Ben will be safe?

                                     CHOPPER
                              (Pause)
                         I wouldn't like to say.

                                     LEE
                         Shit, you realize that we just killed the 
                         hotel manager?

                                     CHOPPER
                         He was the hotel manager.

                                     LEE
                         Chopper...

                                     CHOPPER
                         What?

                                     LEE
                         Just take a look outside.

                    P.O.V: CHOPPER/LEE/CHLOE

                    OUTSIDE THE WINDOW:

                    Basically the same thing as what R.E Freak and Collymore saw, just 
                    a few more Zombies and a different location.

                         They're here!

                                     CHOPPER
                         Poltergeist? That's a great flick...

                                     LEE
                         No time for movies. What should we do Mr. 
                         Survival Expert?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Check the other rooms, break the doors down 
                         if we have to.

                    Chopper moves into his bag and takes out a HAND-AXE. One side it 
                    has a shiny blade, the other a small hammer.

                                     LEE
                         You take that everywhere don't you?

                    Chopper also takes out a WHEEL BRACE and hands it to Lee.

                                     CHOPPER
                              (Chloe)
                         D'you want a weapon?

                         N...no.

                                     LEE
                         Let's move.

                    INT. CORRIDOR -- CONTINUOUS

                    The three EDGE out into the corridor. They go to the first door.

                                     LEE
                         Should I knock?

                                     CHLOE
                         Go on.

                    The SUSPENSE BUILDS as Lee knocks three times, on the third knock 
                    the door creaks open.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Go, go, go.

                    INT. ROOM -- CONTINUOUS

                    They step inside, but the room is empty.

                    EXT. CORRIDOR -- CONTINUOUS

                    As they come out.

                                     CHLOE
                         Well?

                                     LEE
                         It was empty.

                    Chopper moves to another door. His hand is about to touch it, when 
                    there is a MECHANICAL CLICK from behind.

                    All three turn.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                    ANGLE ON

                    The doors of the Hotel's lift as they slowly CLICK OPEN. Five of 
                    the INFECTED SPEW out! Half stumbling/running towards them.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Run!

                                     LEE
                         To where?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Just go...

                                     CHLOE
                         I'm not leaving without you...

                                     CHOPPER
                         I didn't expect you to!

                    Chopper DASHES at the ATTACKERS.

                    He swings his AXE UPWARDS, catching one of their chins. Lee comes 
                    to his aid.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         I told you to run!

                                     LEE
                         I'm not leaving without you!

                    Lee SMASHES a Zombie with the Wheel Brace. Knocking it to the 
                    ground. He then LEVELS a kick at its shoulder, sending it SPINNING 
                    wildly.

                    Chopper, meanwhile, is in the thick of things. Axe swinging 
                    everywhich way but loose. Heads are rolling and Zombies are falling.

                    Lee is valiantly battling, but a few more ghouls stumble out from 
                    a Hotel Room and GRAB him. He SCREAMS as he is pulled to the ground, 
                    the wheel brace.

                                     CHOPPER
                              (Can't get to him)
                         LEEEE!

                    Chopper is also taken by a wave of the Undead, but HIS AXE puts a 
                    red pathway through them.

                    ANGLE ON

                    Lee, as his three assaliants bend down to him ready to feast.

                    ANGLE ON

                    Chloe, huddled in the corner. She's terrified.

                    BACK TO SCENE

                    As an ORANGE FLASH suddenly hits across the screen, KNOCKING into 
                    Lee's attackers. It's the dog!

                                     LEE
                              (Thankful)
                         Scorch!

                    Chopper GRABS Lee and PULLS him up to his feet.

                    Scorch MADLY fights the Zombies, TEETH chewing FLESH. The Monsters 
                    are spread everywhere by their CANINE attacker.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Scorch! Quick!

                    Chopper, Lee, Chloe and the Dog RUSH off from the advancing MONSTERS 
                    towards two DOUBLE DOORS to the left. Lee reaches them first, and 
                    SHOULDER-BARGES in. He is followed by the others. The Dog lets out 
                    a few barks of warning then heads out.

                    INT. STAIRWELL -- CONTINUOUS

                    They come out onto one of the landings on a dusty stairwell.

                                     LEE
                         Which way?
                              (Pause)
                         Up or down?

                         Down.

                    They descend, HURTLING down the steps as fast as they can.

                    INT. STAIRS -- CONTINUOUS

                    A CARETAKER comes after them, grabbing at Lee. Lee SPINS and CRACKS 
                    it with the Wheel brace, it drops off the side of the bannister.

                                     LEE
                         Bastard!

                         Just don't let 'em bite you.

                                     CHLOE
                         They're Zombies aren't they?

                                     CHOPPER
                              (Reaching the bottom of 
                              the stairs)
                         Round of applause for the dumb one.

                    INT. BOTTOM LANDING -- CONTINUOUS

                    They reach the creepy little landing. There are two doors, one is 
                    labelled CLOSET and the other: ENTRANCE.

                                     LEE
                         Which way?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Entrance. If we can make it to the truck 
                         then I reckon we can at least make a break 
                         for it.

                    They move past the dead CARETAKER and to the entrance.

                    INT. RECEPTION AREA -- CONTINUOUS

                    The reception area is quite a large room but it is dull and devoid 
                    of life, no posters, no people. Just an empty desk, a few doors, a 
                    lift and a window.

                    Plus a FEW ZOMBIES who are eating in the left hand corner of the 
                    room.

                    Lee moves towards them, murder on his mind. Chopper stops him.

                         Make no noise and they won't notice you. Go 
                         to the entrance door.

                    They EDGE to the door.

                                     CHOPPER
                         GO!

                    All three KICK it open and with dog in tow they charge out and 
                    into:

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    INT. SKEDDERSVILLE -- DAY

                    The same old WARZONE of a town. The INFECTED are everywhere, a few 
                    CARS VEER through, while others crash. A crashed van and a Police 
                    car lie out in front.

                                     CHLOE

                         Okay. Right...the roads are kinda blocked.

                         We could just die?

                         Don't be stupid. Lee, take her and the dog 
                         to the police station. It's that funny shaped 
                         building I took the piss out of earlier.

                                     LEE
                         Wh...what're you gonna do?

                         Kill.

                         I'm not leaving without you.

                         Quick! I have a gun in the truck. I'll 
                         distract them while you run.

                         Come on, Lee, he can't be spoken to.

                    Chloe EMBRACES Chopper.

                                     CHLOE (CONT'D)
                         Bye.

                    Chopper nods and pushes his two best friends away.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Now go!

                    They reluctantly start RUNNING.

                    Chopper waits till they turn a corner then RUNS to his Pickup, he 
                    has to jump over a few CORPSES to get there but still manages.

                    EXT. PICKUP TRUCK -- CONTINUOUS

                    Chopper pushes a load of splintered wood out of the way and pulls 
                    a canvas sheet off of the buck.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    EXT. ROOF -- DAY

                    Lockhan, now very BORED, has taken to pacing the roof and talking 
                    to himself.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Well, Lockhan, old boy. You've certainly 
                         done it this time. There isn't a way out at 
                         all, those things are everywhere.
                              (Pause)
                         But wait...if they've all gone out there, 
                         then that means that...the hospital is empty           *
                              (Pause)
                         If I could just get to one of the 
                         Ambulances...then maybe, just maybe, I could 
                         escape.

                    Lockhan considers it.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         Well, it's worth a try. I'd rather die bravely 
                         than die of hunger up here.

                    Lockhan turns and RUNS to the firestairs.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    EXT. PICKUP TRUCK -- DAY

                    Chopper PEELS the canvas away and JUMPS inside.

                                     CHOPPER
                         C'mon, c'mon, please be here. Please be here! 
                         Grrr...what'd I do with it?

                    ANGLE ON

                    A group of WALKING CORPSES (including Doug, the barman) as they 
                    approach the truck and the unknowing Chopper.

                    EXT. PICKUP TRUCK -- CONTINUOUS

                    Chopper takes out a PUMP-ACTION shotgun and two boxes of shells. 
                    He checks and the gun is all ready loaded.

                    He has just clicked the safety to "OFF" when he IS YANKED, SCREAMING 
                    FROM THE BUCK AND ONTO THE PAVEMENT.

                    EXT. ALLEYWAY -- CONTINUOUS

                    Lee and Chloe, still running, brace themselves as they hear the 
                    scream.

                                                                  CUTBACK TO:

                    EXT. PAVEMENT -- CONTINUOUS

                    As they try to get a good grip on the STRUGGLING CHOPPER. Chopper 
                    SQUEEZES off a shot.

                    KABOOM!

                    It echoes for miles, as three of the Corpses are BLOWN off of him.

                    INSERT

                    COLLYMORE, as his eyes suddenly SNAP open due to the shot.

                    BACK TO SCENE

                    Chopper ROLLS through the space that is left and CRAWLS to his 
                    feet. He LETS off another SHOT and checks the ammo gauge, FIVE 
                    SHOTS LEFT. He moves across from the mayhem and KICKS one of the 
                    Zombies into the truck, then finishes it with the Axe.

                    Another grabs him from behind but his hands find the SHOVEL and he 
                    STRIKES it down with it.

                                     CHOPPER
                         I'M ON FIRE!

                    Chopper moves back in anticipation, two ZOMBIES CHARGE. Chopper 
                    trips one of them up, and SMACKS the other with his axe.

                    HE BLASTS at a ground of Zombies, KNOCKING THEM BACKWARD.

                    He fires again, but misses, DUST KICKS up into a few UNDEAD FACES. 
                    A CAR HURTLES past. Knocking a few of them back.  Chopper takes 
                    his chance, and CHOPS one from behind with the axe. He PUNCHES 
                    another, then AXES it into oblivion.

                    A ZOMBIE suddenly grabs him from a madly close range.

                    CLICK! The shotgun runs try.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Bollocks!

                    He FLIPS the gun over so he's holding it by the barrel and HITS 
                    the Zombie under the chin with the barrel.

                    A TALL ZOMBIE stumbles into frame, SWIPING at him.

                    Chopper grabs a BRICK from the ground and HURLS it.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                    It CRACKS INTO THE TALL ZOMBIE. Killing it again. Chopper turns 
                    and SIDEKICKS a FAT ZOMBIE. The Zombie WHACKS into a car. Chopper 
                    takes a chance and DUCKS down behind a crushed van, he clicks in 
                    SIX SHELLS. He can't quite get seven in as the Undead groups are 
                    drawing in.

                    BLAM! He BLOWS away two of them with one shot. One tries to come 
                    from behind but he GRABS a JIMMY-BAR from the floor and SMACKS it 
                    under the chin with the claw end. Terminating it instantly.

                    FIVE CREATURES CLOSE IN, but Chopper quickly PUMPS and FIRES. 
                    KABLAM! Four of them EXPLODE, the other just TOPPLES onto the fat 
                    zombie.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         COME GET SOME!

                    A zombie comes to the left, Chopper BLOWS its arm off. He pumps 
                    and uses the axe to SLICE another approaching ghoul.

                    He STANDS UP. A zombie's hand SUDDENLY SMASHES through the truck 
                    window, making us all jump. Chopper spins and yanks the door open. 
                    A zombie clutching a revolver falls out. Chopper BLASTS it.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Ah-ha.

                    He grabs the revolver and takes a look at it, it has a long 
                    telescopic sight on the barrel, after that he then pockets it. A 
                    box of ammo catches his eye and he reaches in and finds a few more 
                    boxes of ammo.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Ka-ching!

                    He steps out. FIRES a few REVOLVER SHOTS.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Hail to the king baby...
                              (Decapitates a ghoul)
                         And I'm here saving the world till tuesday!

                    A zombie grabs his foot, but Chopper BRINGS the axe DOWN on him.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Try harder.

                    Chopper takes a RUNNING JUMP and lands on the roof of an OVERTURNED 
                    VOLVO. He AIMS at a few zombies and BOOM, the Shotgun goes off.

                    THEY EXPLODE.

                    Chopper ROLLS across onto the bonnet, KICKS a few zombie hands 
                    away and lands a few yards from the car. He FIRES the revolver at 
                    an approaching ghoul. Taking it down with a headshot.

                    Chopper grabs a VERY FAST ZOMBIE and SLAMS it into the side of 
                    another Volvo. He turns and SHOOTS its partner with the Revolver.

                    He ROLLS, dodging three attackers and BLASTS the shotgun at them.

                    One of the Infected FLOPS down from a window high above, Chopper 
                    spins and AXES it just in time.

                    He bobs up to his feet and quickly loads his revolver--just in 
                    time to send another ATTACKER to his grave--PERMANETLY.

                    The FAST ZOMBIE comes back, Chopper is waiting and AXES it into 
                    oblivion.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Maybe I'll extend my stay till friday.

                    He BLASTS his final Shotgun round at SIX ATTACKERS then clicks 
                    SEVEN more into his place. This guy's MAD.

                    He JUMPS up, and SLAMS the axe into another ZOMBIE. He then PUNCHES 
                    it down and kicks the one behind it. BLAM! BLAM! The revolver 
                    PROTECTS him from two others and a BLAST from the shotgun KNOCKS 
                    BACK the nearest attackers.

                    A flesh eater BREAKS out from a CRASHED BUS and runs at him. Chopper 
                    ducks its inital attack, and SHOOTS it with the revolver. Both 
                    land on the floor.

                    Chopper runs up to a CRASHED POLICE CRUISER.

                    He aims the SHOTGUN and BLASTS at eight zombies, who are stumbling 
                    out of a pub.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Last orders, gentlemen.

                    A NEWSAGENT zombie comes after, him but Chopper AXES/SHOOTS it 
                    simualtaneously.

                    A few zombies try to converge, but a SHOTGUN BLAST sends them 
                    flying. Chopper moves round the side of the car, he sees a Punk 
                    zombie who has a large dagger sticking out of his side.

                    Chopper AIMS with the revolver sight and BLAM! Blasts the zombie 
                    to hell, he then ducks back and grabs the dagger.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Ah!

                    He takes the axe and SLASHES through two zombies, before giving a 
                    dagger to the ear of a third monster.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         Go to hell! Freaks!

                    Chopper turns and sees a HUGE CROWD of undead coming at him, he 
                    ROLLS across the floor and DODGES behind a lump of concrete. The 
                    zombies, confused as to where he's gone just STUMBLE straight past.

                    Chopper POPS UP AND FIRES. 

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    Just behind Chopper is where the cruiser and the van crashed. I 
                    did mention it earlier in page 53 or 52. Collymore has been awoken 
                    by the gunshots.

                    ANGLE ON

                    Survivor, as his eyes POP open.

                    THE INFECTED SURVIVOR attacks Collymore from behind.

                    EXT. PAVEMENT -- CONTINUOUS

                    Chopper's head SNAPS back due to the Scream, his eyes dart around 
                    for the source of the SCREAM. He turns to see the Cruiser as 
                    something inside moves slightly.

                    He DARTS towards it, KNOCKING a path through some random Ghouls.

                    INT. POLICE CRUISER -- CONTINUOUS

                    R.E Freak is shook awake and turns to see Survivor GRABBING at 
                    Collymore.

                         THE GUN! THE GUN! FREAK, YOU GOTT...

                    SMASH! Chopper's Shotgun butt CRUSHES the windscreen.

                                     CHOPPER (O.S.)
                         GET OUT!

                         Help!

                    Freak grabs the Handgun and FIRES at Survivor, finally NAILING 
                    him.

                                     CHOPPER (O.S.)

                    EXT. SKEDDERSVILLE -- CONTINUOUS

                    R.E Freak is first to crawl out and Chopper PULLS him the last 
                    way. Collymore comes out next, with his ADRENALINE PUMPING after 
                    the battle with Survivor.

                    The FLESH EATERS are beginning to get closer, a CROWD of them.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Well thank your lucky stars later, c'mon, 
                         we'd better get going.

                         The police station. It's probably the only

                    His sentence trails off, as a Zombie suddenly GRABS him.

                         AAGH!

                    BLAM! Chopper fires at him, he SWIVELS to fire at one of the faster 
                    creatures, but he is tackled behind by DOUG.

                                     CHOPPER
                         YAAGH!

                    His shotgun falls from his grip, and Freak, who had slid his pistol 
                    in his pocket dives for it. But he is INTERCEPTED by two DOCTORS, 
                    who SNATCH him up and move for a feast.

                    ANGLE ON

                    Collymore, as he lies on his back--being eaten.

                    BACK TO SCENE

                    Collymore, in full view, is dragged away. He DRASTICALLY tries to 
                    grab at things but is pulled out of sight and into a sea of the 
                    undead.

                    Chopper tries to WRESTLE his way out but more and more PILE ontop 
                    of him. It's a BUNDLE.

                                     R.E FREAK
                         Collymore?

                    Freak breaks free of the doctors and his hands find the shotgun. 
                    HE FIRES at two of the APPROACHING UNDEAD.

                    ANGLE ON

                    The bundle. Chopper, almost crushed, is able to CRAWL out and under 
                    a convinetly placed Sports car. The Flesh Eaters don't notice.

                    BACK TO SCENE

                    R.E Freak FIRES the LAST TWO rounds. He tries to pump but the catch 
                    slides back.

                                     R.E FREAK (CONT'D)
                         Shit!

                    He FLIPS it to the other side and uses it to BEAT the creatures 
                    back. BLOOD SPRAYS.

                    Chopper suddenly pops up from the other side of the sports car.

                                     R.E FREAK (CONT'D)
                         Shit, you startled me!

                         C'mon! Run!

                    Freak moves to discard the shotgun.

                    Chopper takes out his Axe, SWINGS at a few Zombies and begins to 
                    run, REALLY FAST. Freak follows.

                                                                     CUT TO:

                    They see that a few ZOMBIES are pawing around at the entrance. The 
                    dog comes round the corner a few seconds later.

                         How could it have done? Chances are that 
                         many SOS calls were made. I bet the SWAT 
                         team will be coming in new.

                         Because they wouldn't drop their weapons. 
                         Only thing was, after they'd died we found 
                         out that the guns were only BB guns.

                         That is such a cliched story. Same thing 
                         happened to the guy off Die Hard. Maybe you 
                         stupid cop bastards should...

                         Look at them, they're all out there. If there 
                         were any others left then they'd
 be killing 
                         them.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Well, there might be a few left.

                         I doubt everyone would have died.

                         Wouldn't surprise me.

                         Finchley!

                         What a disfunctional lot.

                                     LORNA
                         Can't we all just get out?

                                     JOEL
                         That'd be too easy, love.

                                     DERRICK
                         Sludwell, it'd be wise to shut up....

                    Suddenly the radio CRACKLES.

                                     TATWELL
                         Survivors!

                    Brodski pounces on the radio.

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                         Hello?

                                     SWAT COMMANDER (V.O.)
                         Is this Sergeant Brodski?

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                         Yes.

                                     SWAT COMMANDER (V.O.)
                         I'm Lieutenant Michael Gunning, I'm in the 
                         SWAT team. We've heard of your problems.

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                         Are you coming to rescue us?

                                     SWAT COMMANDER (V.O.)
                         No. There's little that we can do.

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                              (Angry)
                         So you're just gonna let us die?

                                     SWAT COMMANDER (V.O.)
                         Well...for all we know you may all be 
                         contaminated. But many of your town has 
                         escaped and are now in our Outpost.

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                         Which is where?

                                     SWAT COMMANDER (V.O.)
                         On the edge of your town. If you could make 
                         it to our outpost then we can check you for 
                         contamination and then let you go.

                    Swat Commander hangs up.

                    Everyone stares not knowing what to say.

                                     RED
                         Well...is that good or bad?

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                         Neither, we have nothing big enough to get 
                         there. Cars can easily be flipped.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Yeah. That was what happened to us.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         My shoulder still hurts from then.

                         Shame we didn't have an army tank.

                                     LEE
                         Yeah, or a chopper.

                                     CHOPPER
                         But none of us can fly one.

                                     TATWELL
                         Good point.

                                     LORNA
                         I can fly a seaplane.

                         Well if it's a big vehicle you want, then we 
                         got plenty of trucks down at the store.

                         Of course, why didn't I think of it before?

                                     RED
                         What?

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                         What you just said. If a few of us could get 
                         down there, through the back routes and steal 
                         a truck we could bring it back here and 
                         escape.

                                     TATWELL
                         That is a pretty good idea.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         But who will go?

                                     RED
                         Well, I'll have to as I know where everything 
                         is and have the keys.

                                     JOEL
                         I...

                                     LORNA
                         No, dear, we'd best stay here.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         How about me and Furlough go.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Yeah.

                                     CHOPPER
                         I'm the Zombie expert here so I'd better go.

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                         Well, four is about all we need. As it was 
                         my idea I should come, but I have cramp in 
                         my leg.

                                     CHOPPER
                         C'mon then, those doors won't hold much 
                         longer. The quicker we go the better.

                                     CARTER
                         Okay, we'll let you out the back way.

                    Carter puts down his Machete and moves to the back door with 
                    Brodski.

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                         Five...four...three...two...one...Go! Go! 
                         Go!

                    He unbolts the door and SWINGS IT OPEN.

                    Chopper, McDuffy, Furlough and Red JUMP out into a small alley.

                                     CARTER
                         GOOD LUCK!

                    The dog tries to follow Chopper but it is restrained by Joel.

                    The door closes.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    EXT. ALLEYWAY -- CONTINUOUS

                    Chopper leads the group as they run down the alleyway.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Should we get a car?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Yes. Anyone got a car round here?

                                     RED
                         Mine's parked out front, that's how I got 
                         here.

                    EXT. STREET -- CONTINUOUS

                    They go into a street and Red SPRINTS towards his Hatchback, he 
                    pulls out the keys and PRESSES the unlock button. A Zombie grabs 
                    him but Furlough SHOOTS it with the Uzi, it drops.

                                     RED
                         C'mon, get in.

                    McDuffy jumps in the shotgun seat, Red in the driver's and the 
                    other two in the back.

                                     FURLOUGH
                              (As he slams the door)
                         C'mon, step on it.

                         Okey-doke, BELT UP EVERYONE!

                    INT. HATCHBACK -- CONTINUOUS

                    Red flicks the tape deck on and the Beach Boys' "Surfin' U.S.A" 
                    comes on.

                                     RED
                              (As he drives)
                         "Tell the teacher we're surfin', surfin' 
                         U.S.A. Da da da da da, Surf city here we 
                         come..."

                    Red JUST MANAGES to spin away from a crashed postvan and he reverses 
                    into another turning.

                                     RED (CONT'D)
                         Okay, maybe I'd better not sing while driving.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Yeah, our eardrums could do with a rest.

                    found fury.

                    Brodski puts the keys in the lock, ready for a quick flight.

                         SHIT!

                    The DOOR BURSTS OPEN.

                    A flurry of the UNDEAD CHARGE INSIDE.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    INT. HATCHBACK -- DAY

                    Unaware of the chaos inside the station, Red is continuing to drive. 
                    He CRASHES headfirst into a DECTER'S WALKING CORPSE, sending it SMASHING 
                    onto the bonnet. Blood flies.

                    Red turns the window wipers on.

                                     RED

                    The Hatchback scoots past a Gunshop (Joel's shop).

                    The song ends and is replaced by "Goodbye, goodbye gracious".

                    Red just manages to avoid a GROUP OF ZOMBIES.

                    But he does accidentally SMACK into the Zombie Collymore, putting 
                    him down for a second time.

                         Here we are, almost there.

                    He takes a sharp left and the WILLIAM'S D.I.Y/TRUCK RENTAL STORE 
                    LOOMS AHEAD.

                    EXT. WILLIAM'S D.I.Y -- DAY

                    The Hatchback stops and all four jump out. McDuffy and Furlough 
                    fire at the approaching Zombies while Red moves to the door. He 
                    takes out a set of keys and unlocks the door. Chopper steps in 
                    behind him, a revolver in one hand--Axe in the other.

                    Red opens it and A ZOMBIE jumps out.

                    Chopper DECAPITATES IT WITH A QUICK AXE SWIPE.

                    It lands on the floor.

                                     RED WILLIAMS
                         C'mon!

                    Furlough and McDuffy turn--they run back to him. All of them edge 
                    inside, but Furlough fires one LAST SHOT as the door closes.

                    IT HITS A ZOMBIE DEAD ON.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    INT. POLICE STATION -- DAY

                    The INFECTED run inside.

                                     SGT. BRODSKI
                              (Hurriedly)
                         To the Cell! Cellllllll....

                    He trails off as he is SUCKED IN BY THE HORDE OF UNHOLY MONSTERS. 
                    Brodski BATTLES valiantly, FIRING all six of his revolver's shots, 
                    each one taking down a zombie, but he eventually just disappears 
                    into the crowd.

                                     SGT. BRODSKI (CONT'D)
                         WHY COULDN'T I HAVE RETIRED THREE YEARS 
                         AGO!!!! 

                    INT. CELL -- CONTINUOUS

                    As Carter jumps inside. Hannah follows suit behind her is Chloe, 
                    who is dragging the dog by the collar both of them make it.

                    BACK TO SCENE

                    Sludwell SNAPS off a CHAIR LEG and battles his way towards the 
                    Cell. He just makes it. Tatwell runs in as well a few ZOMBIES grab 
                    him but Sludwell saves his life by PULLING him in at the last 
                    minute.

                    Julian and Finchley run for the back door, they swing it open but 
                    are greeted by two SNARLING UNDEAD MONSTERS.

                                     JULIAN
                         AAGH!

                    Finchley KICKS Julian in front of them.

                                     FINCHLEY
                         Take him!

                                     JULIAN
                         NNNOOO! PLEASE!

                    Julian IS BITTEN and DRAGGED to the floor.

                    Finchley turns to go, but Lee gives him a sharp RIGHT HOOK.

                                     LEE
                         BASTARD!

                    Finchley falls, this provides fatal as Brodski's Zombie is also at 
                    ground level. A few more Zombies come.

                    They CONVERGE and dinner is served.

                    Lee jumps into the Cell and along with R.E Freak is the last one 
                    to escape alive.

                    Joel and Lorna BATTLE their way to the cell. But Derrick RAMS them 
                    out of the way in his dash to safety. But he only gets himself 
                    EATEN sooner. He is dragged out just like Brodski was.

                                     CARTER
                         QUICK! INSIDE!

                    But no, Lorna and Joel DO NOT make it. They DISAPPEAR INTO THE 
                    SHEER SWARM OF THE UNDEAD. Joel's rifle CRACKS a few times but 
                    then everything falls SILENT. Apart from the sound of the feasting 
                    undead.

                    INT. CELL -- CONTINUOUS

                    We take a look at our survivors: Lee, Carter, Chloe, Sludwell, 
                    Hannah, Scorch, R.E Freak and Tatwell. And not one of them isn't 
                    purely horrified.

                                     CARTER
                         I can't believe they got the Sergeant!

                    He locks the cell.

                                     LEE
                         Keep really quiet and they'll go away.

                                     CARTER
                         Everyone sit down and try not to move or 
                         make uneccesary conversation.

                    There is no sound but FEASTING ZOMBIES and the RAIN outside. 

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    INT. WILLIAM'S D.I.Y -- DAY

                    Red, Furlough, McDuffy and Chopper run through the aisles grabbing 
                    various tools and assorted inventory. Chopper finds a SLEDGEHAMMER.

                                     RED
                         Quick! Through here!

                    Red kicks open a door.

                    EXT. PARKING LOT -- CONTINUOUS

                    Red takes them to a large, open backed big rig. Two seats in the 
                    front, lots of places in the back.

                                     RED
                         Name's Bessie, biggest thing we got.

                    Red unlocks the door.

                                     RED (CONT'D)
                         My driving's slightly too bad for this, I'll 
                         take the back.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Me too.

                    Red hands the keys to Furlough.

                                     RED
                         Just be careful with her, she's my baby.

                                     FURLOUGH
                              (Grins)

                    Chopper and Furlough get in.

                    While McDuffy and Red CLAMBER into the back.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    INT. WARD -- DAY

                    Lockhan enters a ward full of beds. Some of the beds are full, but 
                    they all have black sheets put over the bodies.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Death...death everywhere...

                    Slowly each one of the bodies begins to SIT BOLT UPRIGHT! A beat,
		    then another sits up. And another. And another. 

                    Lockhan BOLTS out of the door.

                                                                     CUT TO: 

                    INT. BIG RIG -- CONTINUOUS

                    Furlough shoots up the engines.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Whooohooohooo! Haven't driven one of this 
                         since I was eighteen!

                                     CHOPPER
                         Great, hope you haven't lost the knack.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Heh, never.

                    Furlough swings out and SMASHES THROUGH THE FENCE. They move out 
                    onto the road.

                    EXT. BACK OF TRUCK -- CONTINUOUS

                    McDuffy and Red are swung to the side.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Shit, I'm feeling giddy.

                                     RED
                         Heh, you'll get used to it.

                    Furlough PICKS UP SPEED while all the time the Infected are being 
                    rammed into.

                    McDuffy fires wildly at the Zombies who CHASE after them.

                    Furlough swings a corner at BREAKNECK speed.

                    McDuffy TOPPLES, dropping his gun, he rolls to the edge of the 
                    buck, SCREAMING MADLY.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         AAGH! HELP!

                    INT. BIG RIG -- CONTINUOUS

                    Neither of them can hear the screams.

                         'Sokay, I got'cha.

                    Red moves forward to grab Red, but the Big Rig JOLTS as it hits a 
                    crowd of Zombies.

                    RED TOPPLES OUT OF THE BUCK AND INTO THE ROAD.

                                     RED (CONT'D)
                         Nnoooooo!

                              (Clinging on)
                         Shit!

                Red hits the road, glances up at the approaching zombies.
		    Sees an opening. Can he make it?

                                     RED
                         Good luck!

                Red turns and RUNS, he soon disappears inside a CROWD OF MAD 
                ZOMBIES.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Oh dammit!

                    McDuffy MANAGES to swing himself up and back into safety.

                                     MCDUFFY (CONT'D)
                              (Breathing heavily)
                         Phew!

                    He grabs his Magnum .44 and LEVELS it at an APPROACHING ZOMBIE.

                                     MCDUFFY (CONT'D)
                         Hasta la vista, bebe.

                    BLAM!

                    He blows it out of existence.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    Chopper and Furlough driving.

                         Bet those guys are having the time of their 
                         lives back there.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Yep. But it's certainly a bumpy ride.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         At least those things can't get us.

                    Furlough TURNS SHARPLY.

                                     CHOPPER
                               (Nods)
                         Bet they're havin' a ball back there.

                    EXT. BACK OF TRUCK -- CONTINUOUS

                    But McDuffy is certainly not having a ball. He is being bumped 
                    backwards and forwards at every turning.

                    One thing he does like the look of is the amount of dead zombies 
                    that lie on the road behind them.

                    The Station comes into sight.

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    Lockhan comes out of the floor he was in and RUSHES down a set of 
                    stairs. A GROUP OF PATIENT ZOMBIES are at the bottom. Lockhan JUMPS 
                    onto the bannister AND SLIDES ON TOP OF THEM, knocking a fair few 
                    down.

                    He BREAKS INTO A CORRIDOR.

                    INT. CORRIDOR -- CONTINUOUS

                    Lockhan ENTERS and charges through, madly looking for a way out. 
                    BEN grabs him. He squirms free of Ben's grip and SMASHES him across 
                    the bounce with the hammer. Ben DIES again.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         I gotta get outa here!

                    He sees a BACK EXIT, RUNS for it. He gets there JUST AS A HORDE OF 
                    THE UNDEAD BURSTS THROUGH THE DOORS TO HIS LEFT.

                                                                     CUT TO:

                         But then again, they've probably gone back 
                         into that cell or something.

                                     FURLOUGH

                                     MCDUFFY (O.S.)
                              (Faint)
                         Yep...but we lost Red...he fell off.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Shit!

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Quite.

                    Suddenly SOMETHING DARTS ahead of them. It's LOCKHAN! He is waving 
                    his arms madly.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Help! Let me in!

                                     FURLOUGH
                         GET IN THE BACK! Quick!

                    EXT. BACK OF TRUCK -- CONTINUOUS

                    McDuffy pulls Lockhan in. Lockhan lands in a heap, dropping his 
                    trusty hammer on the edge of the buck.  McDuffy FIRES five QUICK 
                    SHOTS into the attacking horde. One jumps onto the edge of the 
                    trailer, but McDuffy seizes Lockhan's hammer and BEATS it away.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Doctor Lockhan?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Oh...McDuffy....oh...huh...huh...huh. I've 
                         just had the worst night of my life...no 
                         sleep...nothing, just the smell of death!

                                     MCDUFFY
                              (Smiles)
                         That's the problem with the late shift. 
                              (Pause)
                         Are you hurt?

                                     LOCKHAN
                         N...no. Just a few bumps and bruises.

                    The Big Rig stops.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         Wh...why are we stopping?

                                     MCDUFFY
                         We're stopping at the station to pick up our 
                         friends, then we're outa here.

                    INT. BIG RIG -- CONTINUOUS

                    Furlough turns to Chopper.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Whadda we do?

                                     CHOPPER
                         I'm going in. You stay here. If I'm not out 
                         in five minutes then go straight for the 
                         barricade!

                                     FURLOUGH
                         Okay.

                    Furlough hands him his axe and Revolver.

                                     FURLOUGH (CONT'D)
                         Good luck.

                                     CHOPPER
                         I'll need it.

                    Chopper JUMPS OUT and slams the door shut.

                                     FURLOUGH
                         There goes a brave man!

                    EXT. POLICE STATION -- CONTINUOUS

                    Chopper lands and moves round the side of the big rig.

                                     MCDUFFY (O.S.)
                         Want me to come?

                         Nope. Stay back.

                    Chopper edges to the back entrance.

                    EXT. ALLEYWAY -- CONTINUOUS

                    Chopper moves through the alleyway and to the back way. Julian's 
                    Zombie RUSHES him, but he BEHEADS it with a swipe of the axe.

                    He gets to the door.

                    It opens with a creak...

                    A beat.

                    INT. POLICE STATION -- CONTINUOUS

                    Chopper enters. The Zombies spot him, but he does a very strange 
                    thing: He begins to stumble and look forward with glazed zombie 
                    eyes. They turn their backs to him.

                    INT. CELL -- CONTINUOUS

                    They see Chopper.

                                     CHLOE
                         C...chopper?

                              (Whisper)
                         Yes. It's me. C'mon, the truck's outside, 
                         gotta be quick 'else they'll leave without 
                         us.

                                     SLUDWELL
                         Shit...we thought you were dead.

                                     CHOPPER
                              (Whisper)
                         Just come on!

                    The door is unlocked. None of the Zombies notice.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         NOW!

                    They CHARGE OUT OF THE CELL.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         The back way!

                    Sludwell is first out, he turns and SCOOTS forward.

                    Brodski blocks the way.

                                     SLUDWELL
                         Sergeant?

                    Brodski/Zombie tackles Sludwell to the ground.

                                     SLUDWELL (CONT'D)
                         NOOO!

                    Sludwell kicks Brodski in the side and knocks him off. 
                    Brodski tries to grab at him.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Fuck!

                    Chopper SHOOTS Brodski, but Sludwell is playing dead. Everyone
	            thinks he died for real.

                                     HANNAH
                         Let's go!

                                     CARTER
                         C'mon, Freak.

                    R.E Freak, Hannah and Carter are first to leave. Then Chloe, Lee 
                    and the Dog. Scorch CHARGES out as fast as it can. Meanwhile an 
                    ARMY OF THE UNDEAD ATTACK.

                                     CHOPPER
                         GIRLS! GIRLS! Run for it!

                                     TATWELL
                         We'll hold them off!

                    Tatwell FIGHTS the approaching Joel zombie. He FLOORS it with a 
                    strike of his dagger.

                    EXT. BACK OF TRUCK -- CONTINUOUS

                    McDuffy catches the dog as it jumps in the back.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Looks  like the others didn't make it, just 
                         the dog.

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.)
                         Right, well, I'm going.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Wait! Look!

                    EXT. STREETS -- CONTINUOUS

                    Hannah and Chloe come around the corner. There is a SCREAM FROM 
                    BEHIND.

                                     HANNAH
                         Oh! They've got the others!

                                     MCDUFFY
                         C'mon, hurry! Hannah, jump in.

                    EXT. BACK OF TRUCK -- CONTINUOUS

                    McDuffy PULLS the two girls in, Lockhan helps. R.E Freak comes 
                    round the corner. He is pulled in.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         Where are the others?

                                     R.E FREAK
                         I think they're dead, I was cut off by a 
                         group of zombies. Only just made it!

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Okay. FURLOUGH! HIT THE GAS.

                    The Big Rig shoots off, after it runs over Finchley. The Dog barks. 
                    Lockhan leans against the side, BREATHING heaving.

                                     LOCKHAN
                         I must be the luckiest guy al...

                    Suddenly Furlough PLOUGHS into a WHOLE LOAD OF ZOMBIES, the Big 
                    Rig shakes wildly.

                    LOCKHAN TOPPLES OVER THE SIDE, STILL TRYING TO FINISH HIS SENTENCE.

                                     LOCKHAN (CONT'D)
                         ...LLLIIIIIIVE!

                    Lockhan lands on the side of the road. McDuffy DUCKS forward to 
                    try and reach him.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         I can't get to him!

                    Another BUMP and MCDUFFY IS THROWN OVER THE EDGE.

                                     MCDUFFY

                         What?

                                     R.E FREAK
                         We've lost Jim and the Doctor!

                    EXT. ROAD -- CONTINUOUS

                    McDuffy LANDS on one knee. Performing a difficult roll.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         STOP! STOP! PLLLLLEASE!

                    EXT. ROAD -- CONTINUOUS

                    McDuffy LOOKS behind him and sees LOCKHAN GETTING SUCKED UP BY A 
                    CROWD OF ZOMBIES.

                    Lockhan DISAPPEARS from view.

                    The HUGE CROWD are getting closer and closer to McDuffy.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         P...please stop! LOCKHAN!

                    McDuffy looks back at them.

                                     MCDUFFY (CONT'D)
                         PLEASE! PLEASE!

                         taste very nice.

                    Looks back to truck.

                         C'MON, JIM! I CAN'T STAY MUCH LONGER!

                    McDuffy JUMPS up and breaks into a SPRINT.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         I was never any good at running.

                    McDuffy is suddenly TACKLED by two FAST MOVERS.

                                     MCDUFFY (CONT'D)
                         Aagh!

                    McDuffy STRUGGLES wildly. 

                    EXT. BACK OF TRUCK -- CONTINUOUS

                    R.E Freak snatches up the shotgun he borrowed from Chopper, he 
                    LEVELS it and FIRES! One of the zombies is HACKED down by the ball 
                    of smoke. It CRASHES to the ground. McDuffy PUNCHES the other 
                    attacker and MAKES a run for it.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         I owe ya one! 

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.)
                         I'll have to go, can't wait any longer!

                                     HANNAH
                         But he's now coming!

                    EXT. ROAD -- CONTINUOUS

                    McDuffy MAKES a grab for the buck, BUT THE BIG RIG LURCHES OUT OF 
                    THE WAY.

                                     MCDUFFY
                         Shit!

                    Suddenly Freak, Chloe and Hannah GRAB HIM.

                    EXT. BACK OF TRUCK -- CONTINUOUS

                    With a STRUGGLE they manage to PULL HIM IN.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                                     MCDUFFY
                              (Out of breath)
                         Damn...I'm not doing that again.

                                     HANNAH
                         IT'S OKAY! WE'VE GOT HIM! HE'S SAFE!

                                     FURLOUGH (O.S.)
                         Right.

                    Furlough HITS THE GAS and they shoot off. 

                                                                      CUT TO:

                    EXT. ALLEYWAY -- CONTINUOUS

                    Chopper, Tatwell, Lee and Carter - all very alive - RUN out.

                    EXT. STREETS -- CONTINUOUS

                    They are crushed when they realize that the truck has gone.

                                     LEE
                              (Breaking down; on knees)
                         NNOOOOO! Why couldn't they have just waited?

                                     CARTER
                         We've got nowhere to go!

                                     CHOPPER
                         We're all alone!

                                     TATWELL
                         And the Museum's too far away.

                                     LEE
                         Surely there must be somewhere?

                                     CARTER
                              (Looking at sword)
                         There is nowhere...nowhere but death!

                    He lets out a BATTLE CRY and rushes at the HORDES of undead. 
                    Swinging his sword.

                                     TATWELL
                         Idiot! Young fool!

                                     CARTER
                         Go on! Run!
                              (Looks around)
                         Get into the sewer!
                              (Points to drainage lid)
                         Go! Go! Go! Go!

                    Carter SWINGS, chopping one of the undead away.

                    Chopper FIRES at Carter's attackers, then DROPS BACK. He goes to 
                    the drainage hole.

                                     CHOPPER
                         C'mon! Tatwell! Lee!

                                     TATWELL
                         I'm not going in there! I'm going to the 
                         museum!

                                     CHOPPER
                         But you said yourself that it was too far 
                         away.

                                     TATWELL
                         Too far for you, but not for me!

                    Tatwell runs into an alleyway.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Is it just me or is everyone losing it in 
                         this town?

                                     LEE
                         It isn't just you. C'mon.

                    Lee grabs the drainage lid and struggles with it. Chopper helps.

                    Chopper MAKES a grab to restrain him, but Carter KNOCKS him off 
                    and jumps at the ghouls. SLASHING back and forth - hands grab at 
                    him, but they always miss - Carter DARTS forth, PUSHING through 
                    the crowd. Machete always WHIZZING in a silver circle.

                    Tatwell, Lee and Chopper look on as he BATTLES, Carter GLANCES 
                    back at them.

                                     CARTER (CONT'D)
                         What are you waiting for? Run!
                              (Pause)
                         Escape down that drain cover!
                              (Pause)
                         Quick, dammit!
                              (Pause)
                         I can't hold 'em off much longer!

                    BACK TO SCENE

                    Chopper HESTITATES a quick look to the drain cover.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Go! Go! Go!

                    Chopper and Lee RUN to the Drain cover. But Tatwell remains 
                    motionless.

                                     CHOPPER (CONT'D)
                         C'mon!

                                     TATWELL
                         No, I'm going to the museum!

                                     LEE
                         What? It's too far away! Come with us!

                                     CHOPPER
                         Last chance!

                                     TATWELL
                         Too far for you, but not for me.

                    Tatwell lets out a MENANCING laugh, FIRES at some nearby zombies 
                    then RUSHES down a side-alley.

                                     TATWELL (O.S.) (CONT'D)
                         Later!

                                     CHOPPER
                              (Shakes head)
                         Is it just me or is everyone losing it around 
                         here?

                                     LEE
                         It isn't just you.

                    Lee STRUGGLES with the lid, trying to pull it off.

                    MEANWHILE:

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                    Carter PUSHES through the crowd, SLASHING zombies away with SUPER 
                    FLICKS of his machete.

                                     CARTER
                         Heh! Blades don't need reloading.

                    Carter MISSES a swing and his machete gets caught in the crowd, 
                    he loses it.

                                     CARTER (CONT'D)
                         Shit!

                    Carter looks at his handgun. He can still use it.

                                     CARTER (CONT'D)
                         No! I don't believe in guns.

                    Carter KICKS and PUNCHES a few of the creatures away.

                    He DUCKS back out of the crowd -  takes a look, but Chopper and 
                    Lee are long gone - he takes a deep breath.

                                     CARTER (CONT'D)
                         Son of a bitch.

                    Carter looks for where to go. He grins and SLIDES a cigarette 
                    into his teeth.

                                     CARTER (CONT'D)
                         Well, they always said the cigarettes would 
                         kill me.
                              (Pause; lights cigarette 
                              with match)
                         They was' wrong.

                    Carter drops the STILL LIT match.

                    ANGLE ON

                    A pile of gasoline underneath a smashed up Citreon Picasso. FLAMES 
                    LICK OUT WILDLY.

                    The flames reach the engine.

                                     CARTER (O.S.) (CONT'D)
                         Okay...maybe the cigarettes will kill me...

                    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMF!

                    BACK TO SCENE

                Lee YANKS the lid off and looks down at the black hole underneath. 
                He turns and fires his Machine gun, then looks back down. He turns
		    at the sound of the explosion and sees Carter go flying at least seven
		    foot into the air.

                                     LEE
                         Shit, it looks so daunting.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Just go.

                    Chopper KICKS him down, Lee SQUEALS as he drops.

                                                       (CONTINUED)




                                     LEE
                         AAGGH!!

                                                                        80.


                    There's a plop as Lee lands.

                                     LEE (CONT'D)
                         Aww!

                    Chopper moves to get down. But a Red Uniformed zombie grabs him, 
                    Chopper acccidentally drops the axe. But he struggles with the 
                    zombie, and we know it's all over when he puts the Handgun in its 
                    mouth. With his other hand he grabs the axe and holsters it.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Mess with the best...
                              (pulls trigger)
                         Die like the rest!

                    BLAM!

                    FADE TO BLACK

                    Sounds of the zombie dropping and the drain lid closing.

                    Fade In:

                    EXT. FIELD -- MUCH LATER

                    Back to where we began. Lee and Chopper have finished discussing.

                                     LEE
                         ...And then we went a bit too far and ended 
                         up here...

                                     CHOPPER
                         Well, at least we know that the infection 
                         can't have spread.

                                     LEE
                         Well, we can't be too far away from the town. 
                         We have been travelling for a few days now.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Well I'd give anything to know what is 
                         happening back there.

                                     LEE
                         Same here. I'd like to see all our friends 
                         now.

                                     CHOPPER
                         Wonder where they all are.

                                     LEE
                         I doubt we'll ever find out.

                    Chopper nods and begins to edge across the field. Suddenly there's 
                    a loud SNAP. It startles them both.

                                     LEE (CONT'D)
                         What was that?

                                     CHOPPER
                         Hell if I know!

                    CRASH! Suddenly FARMER GILES (the zombie) crashes through the 
                    bushes. He GRABS Lee and YANKS him to the ground. Lee SCREAMS.

                                     LEE
                         AIEEE!

                    Chopper unslings his Revolver and tries to get off a hurried shot 
                    but the FARM HAND suddenly GRABS him, Chopper is jerked back and 
                    the gun goes off HITTING LEE IN THE SHOULDER. Lee is sent back, 
                    SCREAMING, but he does get away from his attacker--Momentarily.

                    As Lee tries to get up, he is BITTEN in the SHOULDER by the ZOMBIE, 
                    Lee SCREAMS. Arms flailing.

                    Chopper BLASTS his attacker and runs towards Lee and the Farmer.

                                     LEE (CONT'D)
                         I'm bitten! I'm bitten! Ohhhh...

                    Chopper kicks the farmer through the face, and an ANGRY LEE SHOOTS 
                    THE FARMER INTO OBLIVION.

                                     LEE (CONT'D)
                         I'm done for! Kill me, Harry, kill me!

                                     CHOPPER
                         You'd be lucky!

                    Chopper takes the DAGGER from his pocket.

                                     LEE
                         Yeah! Kill me, quick.

                    Chopper SLASHES a CHUNK out of Lee's bite wound. LEE SQUEALS.

                                     LEE (CONT'D)
                         What was that for?

                                     CHOPPER
                         I'm cutting the wound out. I think I've 
                         stopped the infection.

                                     LEE
                         You think?

                                     CHOPPER
                              (Pause)
                         I think.

                                                                    FADE OUT:

                         Myself and Lee eventually got into the town, 
                         a few days later. We came weary tired men 
                         but after a trip to an illegal brothel we 
                         left fully replenished.

                         Chloe made it out. Barely.

                         As for Tatwell...no one knows. He probably 
                         reached his beloved museum.
                              (Pause)
                         Anyway, I did my job...I protected us from 
                         those things. But I just wish I got paid for 
                         it!
                              (Pause)
                         Oh, and Furlough did get his bike back!
