              FADE IN:
 
              INT. SAMMY'S PUB - MORNING
 
              A small bar filled with PATRONS and accompanied with music
              that plays from an old jukebox.
 
              TONY, a strange fellow in his early 40's wears a Hawaiian
              shirt and a white tee shirt that reads, I KNOW EVERYTHING!
              with a large brain with blue electricity running through it.
 
              He sits on a stool next to the bar drinking a large mug of
              beer.
 
              SAM, in his mid 30's and the owner of the bar cleans some mugs
              with a red rag. He WHISTLES a tune as he does so.
 
              Tony drinks the beer down in one gulp.
 
                                    SAM
                           Must be thirsty, bub.
 
                                    TONY
                           No, just anxious.
 
                                    SAM
                           Oh, going somewhere?
 
                                    TONY
                           Heading for the tip of the Bermuda
                           Triangle.
 
                                    SAM
                           Sounds like fun. A friend of mine
                           is heading there too. Say hi to
                           him from me.
 
                                    TONY
                           What's his name?
 
                                    SAM
                           You can't miss him, he's the
                           captain of the ship.
 
                                    TONY
                           Will do.
 
 
 

                                                                     2.
 
 
              DEXTER, a black man in his mid 30's, approaches Tony from
              behind and sits beside him on a stool. He's dressed like he's
              just left a formal business meeting.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           So, what you need, Tony?
 
                                    TONY
                           I thought you weren't going to
                           show up.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Well, I'm here. What do you need?
 
                                    TONY
                           Can you decode ancient Greek
                           writing?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Yeah, I think so. Why?
 
                                    TONY
                           I need you to go with me on a
                           short trip.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           What for and how much?
 
                                    TONY
                           I need you to help me with a chest
                           box with some ancient Greek
                           writing on it. I already have the
                           tickets, so you're covered. All I
                           need for you to do is to decode it
                           and that's it.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Decode for what purpose?
 
                                    TONY
                           This will make us millionaires.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           What will?
 
 
 
 
 

                                                                     3.
 
 
                                    TONY
                           The thing that's inside of it. So,
                           I need you to decipher the
                           writing. We have to be incognito.
                           Don't want anybody to be
                           suspicious, so wear something
                           casual.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           What's wrong with the way I look?
 
                                    TONY
                           You look like the center of
                           attention.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           What exactly is this so-called box?
 
                                    TONY
                           You trust me, right? I've never
                           lied to you ever.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Not that I can remember. What are
                           you getting at?
 
              PORFIRIO, early 30's police officer walks into the bar. Sam
              nods a hello gesture at him. Porfirio replies by doing the
              same thing.
 
              Tony notices Porfirio and WHISPERS to Dexter.
 
                                    TONY
                           Pandora's box.
 
              Porfirio walks over to the bar and sits down on a stool next
              to Tony. Porfirio looks at him strangely, though shrugs it off.
 
                                    SAM
                           Did I do something wrong, officer?
 
              Porfirio looks down at his uniform.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Sorry, just got out of work. I had
                           no time to change.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Pandora's box?

                                                                     4.
 
 
              Porfirio turns around for a brief moment. Tony turns away and
              scoots closer to Dexter.
 
                                    TONY
                           Quiet, not so loud. I'll tell you
                           everything on the ship.
 
              Tony and Dexter get up and walk out of the bar.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Who were the two geniuses?
 
                                    SAM
                           I dunno, some crazy archeologist.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           How do you know?
 
                                    SAM
                           He told me.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           And the fancy-looking fella?
 
                                    SAM
                           Don't know. He came in right
                           before you did. After that, the
                           nerdy guy stopped chatting about
                           some ancient box and some myth
                           about putting coins under the
                           tongue of the dead. So, anything
                           fun happened to you today.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           The usual, drunks, pimp fighting,
                           neighbor disputing...you know, the
                           usual.
 
                                    SAM
                           Ever get that painting from your
                           pa?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Damn, I knew I forgot something.
                           I left it right by the sofa before
                           I went to sleep yesterday.
 
                                    SAM
                           So, how big is the frame?

                                                                     5.
 
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           It's pretty big. It'll fit right
                           next to your new high definition
                           television.
 
              Sam looks at his High Definition Television set. It hangs on
              a mount in the corner of a wall. It is a true widescreen TV.
 
                                    SAM
                           Yeah, she's a bute, huh?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Yeah. Listen, I'm going to go get
                           you that painting.
 
                                    SAM
                           Now? You just got here.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           I need to put gas in the car
                           anyway and change into something
                           more comfortable. I'll be back in
                           a couple.
 
                                    SAM
                           Great, I can't wait to see the
                           painting.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           You'll be surprised. See you in a
                           while.
 
              Porfirio gets up and heads out the bar doors.
 
              EXT. SAMMY'S PUB
 
              Porfirio hops into his yellow PONTIAC GTO. He tosses his
              police utility belt on the passenger's side. He starts the
              engine and drives off.
 
              EXT. MIAMI HARBOR DOCKS - MORNING
 
              SUPER - Miami Harbor
 
              A few PEOPLE walk around the harbor carrying luggage. CREW
              workers organize some baggage and line it up to put inside
              small cruise liners.
 
 

                                                                     6.
 
 
              A few dozen TOURISTS line up at a boarding dock in front of a
              small cruise ship. The ship sways slowly on the water. "THE
              EXPLORER" is written on the sides of the ship.
 
              Tony is one of the tourists. He checks his pockets repeatedly.
 
                                    TONY
                           Where are my keys? Oh, here they
                           are.
 
              He searches his bags now.
 
                                    TONY
                                (continuing)
                           Where the hell is that brochure?
                           Excuse me, sir.
 
              LAWRENCE, 33, wearing casual clothes turns to Tony.
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                           Who, me?
 
                                    TONY
                           Yes. Hi, I'm Tony, I sorta
                           misplaced my brochure.
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                           Your brochure?
 
                                    TONY
                           Yeah, you know, the little yellow
                           pamphlet back at the station.
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                           I don't know about any brochures.
                           What's the problem?
 
                                    TONY
                           I was hoping you had one to take
                           a look at. I thought I had mine
                           with me.
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                           No, sorry I don't.
 
              He turns away annoyed. Tony perspires and fidgets. He searches
              his pockets for a handkerchief.
 
 

                                                                     7.
 
 
                                    TONY
                           Shit!
 
              Lawrence slightly turns his head at Tony. Tony impatiently
              taps Lawrence on the shoulder.
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                                (annoyed)
                           Yes, what is it?
 
                                    TONY
                           Do you happen to have a
                           handkerchief with you by any
                           chance?
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                           No, sorry.
 
                                    TONY
                           You shoulda been more prepared,
                           Tony. You shoulda! Where are my
                           keys? They're in your hand you
                           idiot! They want you to think it's
                           gone. Just play along to their
                           games.
 
              He wipes his forehead with his Hawaiian shirt.
 
              Lawrence lifts his baggage and walks forward a little. He
              nudges his wife, JOANNE, 30, wearing summer clothes and a sun
              visor on her head protecting her short blonde hair.
 
                                    JOANNE
                           Owe! That hurt. What is it?
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                           Just walk a little further would
                           ya? That guy seems a little weird.
                           We shouldn't have come, I'm
                           telling ya. We could have stayed
                           home. I'm telling ya, he's going
                           to be a pain on this ship. See, I
                           hate that, I really do. On the
                           plane, same thing happened. A
                           little girl peeking behind her
                           seat annoying the hell outta me.
 
                                    JOANNE
                           Oh, she was sweet.

                                                                     8.
 
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                           Sweet? I couldn't go to sleep with
                           her looking at me the way she did.
                           You know how I get when people
                           stare at me when I sleep.
 
                                    JOANNE
                           No, how do you get?
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                           I couldn't tell, that's how bad it
                           can get.
 
                                    JOANNE
                           Now, who would want to see you
                           sleep anyway?
 
                                    LAWRENCE
                           Well, by the looks of that fella.
                           Here, walk a little further will
                           ya?
 
              He grabs Joanne's arm and pulls her with him. She accidentally
              bumps into LINDA, a 56 year old HISPANIC woman.
 
                                    JOANNE
                           Oh, I'm sorry.
 
              She hits Lawrence on the shoulder.
 
                                    JOANNE
                                (continuing)
                           See what you made me do?
 
                                    LINDA
                           Que dijo esa, buey?
 
              GUILLERMO, 27 and his sister, ANNA, 29, turn to her.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Que paso?
 
                                    LINDA
                           Nada!
                                (to herself)
                           Nunca oyen nada.
 
                                    ANNA
                           What did she want, Memo?

                                                                     9.
 
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           I hate it when you call me "Memo."
                           It's Guillermo, please? My ex-
                           girlfriend's father called me
                           Memo. I hated it.
 
                                    ANNA
                           Fine, Guillie.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           It's Guillermo! Son of a bitch.
 
                                    LINDA
                           Ya callense los dos!
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           See what you've caused?
 
                                    ANNA
                           Me?
 
              Three CHINESE tourists, MR. YU, 42, wearing casual day
              clothing and his wife MRS. YU, 40, wearing the same and their
              daughter KIM, 21, wearing dark clothes turn to Guillermo and
              Anna.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Stop it, you're making a scene.
 
                                    ANNA
                           I'm the one making the scene?
 
                                    LINDA
                           Que se callen los dos, les dije!
 
              She SLAPS the back of Guillermo's head. His hair cowlicks from
              the back.
 
                                    MR. YU
                           This is going to be a fun cruise.
 
                                    MRS. YU
                           You always say that and never mean
                           it.
 
                                    MR. YU
                           What do you mean?
 
 

                                                                     10.
 
 
                                    MRS. YU
                           You know what? Drunkie.
 
                                    MR. YU
                           Okay now what's that about?
 
                                    MRS. YU
                           Every time when the fun is
                           beginning you go out and ruin it
                           for the rest of us.
 
                                    MR. YU
                           How's that?
 
                                    KIM
                           Dad, you're always getting drunk.
 
              Mr. Yu raises his hand.
 
                                    MR. YU
                           Don't make me use this little one.
 
                                    MRS. YU
                           Or what, you won't be able to
                           drink 'cause you hurt your
                           drinking hand?
 
                                    MR. YU
                           Shut up!
 
              Dexter, now wearing docker pants, white tee shirt and a straw
              hat turns to the small cruise liner.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           When are they going to start
                           moving this line? The crew already
                           placed the luggage in the ship.
                           What's the hold up?
 
              CATHERINE, 34, beautiful, wears a red skirt and black dress
              shirt.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           What are you here for?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Just exploring, seeing new things.
 
 

                                                                     11.
 
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           Are you an adventurer?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           No. Just a traveler, Ms.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           It's Catherine. And you happen to
                           be?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Dexter. Pleased to meet you.
 
              They shake hands.
 
                                    DEXTER
                                (continuing)
                           So, where exactly are we going?
                           The pamphlet read that we're
                           supposedly heading to Bermuda.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           Not exactly. We're heading to the
                           Triangle.
 
              Dexter's eyes open up wide.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           The Triangle? You mean the Bermuda
                           Triangle? That's impossible?
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           Well, not quite into the Triangle
                           itself. We're supposed to pass by
                           the tip. I thought you said you
                           were an adventurer?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Yeah, but isn't it dangerous? I've
                           heard of ships being lost and
                           people dying out there. Don't tell
                           me this is a white thing.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           Don't be silly.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           What are you here for? I don't see
                           you with anyone else.

                                                                     12.
 
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           Work related. Weird, huh?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           What type of work do you do?
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           I'm a tabloid newspaper reporter.
                           I'm doing a story on the Triangle.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Sounds interesting. Aren't you
                           afraid we'll get lost?
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           I don't see how. I mean many
                           people have been there and
                           nothing's happened. If it were
                           dangerous do you think they would
                           have such a trip?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           I guess you're right.
 
              The captain of the ship, FRANCISCO JIMENEZ, 45, dressed in
              full captain apparel with matching hat, limps to the front of
              the steps from the ship's deck holding a white cane in his
              left hand. The scar on his left eye stands out.
 
              CHARLIE WINTERS, 31, dressed the same way but with different
              ranks on his shirt and hat stands next to Francisco.

                           Welcome everyone. I am your

                           Before we let you board we will be
                           encountering some mild fog as we
                           pass the tip; this is normal. If
                           the fog gets thick, we will stop
                           the ship and lower the anchors. We
                           strongly advice everyone to stay
                           in your cabins or at the
                           entertainment patio slash bar.

                           a vacation would that be, right?
                           Yes, this will be a fun cruise. We

                           This seems interesting. So, how

                           Yes, he resides in the underworld.
                           He was forced to dwell underground
                           by the other Gods. He hired an
                           aged boatman, Charon was his name.
                           He would provide ferry boat rides
                           for those who passed away.

                           More like their souls. Charon
                           would take those souls to Hades'
                           underground layer on a ferry boat.

                                    LAWRENCE
                           Why would anyone want to go to
                           hell? Didn't the myth Greeks
                           believe in Heaven? Now you see why
                           mythology was all bullshit?
 
                                    TONY
                           It was not known as Hell. It was
                           paradise for the dead. Hades' job
                           was to take the souls of the dead.
                           The catch was that when someone
                           died, a coin must be placed under
                           the tongue of the dead. So when
                           the soul would travel to the
                           underworld it would hand that coin
                           over to Charon. Now if Charon did
                           not get his coin, he would not
                           take you on the ferry boat over to
                           soul paradise.

                           So, in other words, no coin meant

                           Bullshit.
 
              A FOG slowly appears.

                           So what would happen to those
                           without the coin?

                           Those without a coin would spend
                           100 years in the River Styx,
                           believe it or not.

                           Charon wouldn't take them. It was
                           Hades' rules.

                           You're giving us a whole lecture
                           now?
 
                                    JOANNE
                           Honey, shut up. I'm trying to
                           listen. Go on.
 
                                    TONY
                           Well, the years progressed and
                           many people died without a coin
                           under their tongue to hand over.
                           Guess how those souls are feeling
                           right about now? Anger and revenge
                           toward the living, I know I would.
                           The passage way to the Underworld,
                           Erebus, got so full that Hades had
                           no choice but to punish those
                           without a coin. The over
                           population was getting way out of
                           control. So Hades did what he had
                           to do, he gave specific
                           instructions to Charon to bring
                           him Pandora's box.
 
                                    JOANNE
                           Isn't that the box that contained
                           all of those plagues?

                                                                     20.
 
 
                                    TONY
                           Yes. Hades punished the souls and
                           placed them in the box along with
                           the plagues. He paid Charon to
                           relocate the box as far away as he
                           could take it and was given
                           certain instructions to place a
                           curse upon it.
 
                                    JOANNE
                           Like a prayer?
 
                                    TONY
                           Exactly, a cursed prayer. And even
                           to this day, Erebus has been
                           growing with dead souls. You can
                           guess what Charon's new job is
                           now? I bet he still transports all
                           of the souls into the cursed box.
                           Do you know what else the Bermuda
                           Triangle is called?
 
                                    JOANNE
                           There's another name for The
                           Bermuda Triangle?

                           Joanne, don't believe what you
                           hear. It's all bullshit, isn't
                           that right?
 
                                    TONY

                           Looks like the fog is getting
                           thicker. We need to drop anchors
                           and turn on the fog lights. Pretty
                           soon it's going to get worse.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           You're right. Go ahead and turn
                           them on. Let me get on the horn
                           with the tourists.
 
              Francisco walks over to the intercom. He presses a button and
              speaks through a microphone.

                                (continuing)
                           Ladies and gentlemen this is
                           Captain Jimenez. We hope that
                           everyone is having a wonderful
                           time. As you can see we have
                           turned on the fog lights and soon
                           will be dropping anchors. Don't
                           worry about anything, there is
                           nothing to worry about. Fog is
                           beginning to thicken and it has
                           come to my attention that it is
                           better for everyone to stay
                           indoors for the time being until
                           the fog has cleared. Because there
                           are wind currents the fog will
                           vanish shortly. We will be
                           approaching the tip of the Bermuda
                           Triangle soon. Thank you.
 
              EXT. FRONT OF CRUISE LINER
 
              Two very large ANCHORS drop from the front of the liner. They
              lower down into the water.
 
              INT. OCEAN - DAY
 
              The anchors drop as far as it can reach. The SECOND anchor's
              CHAIN BREAKS in two separating it from the ship.
 

                                                                     22.
 
 
              It floats down to the ocean floor shimmying its way through
              the dense water. It touches the ocean ground kicking up the
              sand. A scared CRAB crawls away.
 
              The anchor STRIKES a large WOODEN BOX buried in the ground.
              The anchor drags to a stop CRACKING open the top of the box.
              BUBBLES escape from the opening forcing the box to fully open.
 
              A GREEN-colored liquid rises to the top of the ocean's surface.
 
              EXT. OCEAN'S SURFACE
 
              The water bubbles up with green slime. A GREEN GAS manifests
              and floats to the clouds in the sky.
 
              INT. FOG
 
              The green gas mixes with the fog and thickens.

                           about. There's nothing wrong
                           outside, I can see perfectly
                           clear. Why do we have to wait in
                           this small stupid room? The fog's
                           not that thick.

                           "But the captain said, the captain
                           said!" I don't care what the

              Kim changes the channels. Every channel displayed on the

                           You bought these tickets as my

                           She's right. Despite the fog, it's
                           not so bad.

                           Shut up. I just couldn't throw
                           right. I dislocated my arm, okay?

                           You suck, that was the problem.
 

                                                                     25.

                           I suck? Who's the one that got us
                           these tickets?
 
                                    ANNA
                           Oh, let me guess...your coach.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Yeah, but who was it that got
                           injured who got the tickets from
                           the coach? Not you.

              Francisco holds a compass while Charlie checks the ham radio.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           This is the Explorer. Anyone
                           there? Over.
 
              He turns to Francisco.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                                (continuing)
                           Nothing. Just static and some
                           people talking. But, I can't make
                           them out.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Must be the coast guard near by.
                           Same thing with this compass. It
                           just keeps going in circles.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           You don't think we're in the
                           Bermuda Triangle, do you?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           I hope not. The methane gases
                           would have sunk us down by now. Or
                           burned us.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           We haven't heard anything from the
                           engine room.

                           Then there's nothing to worry
                           about.

                                                                     26.
 
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Should I just call in to check it
                           out and let them know of our
                           situation?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           It's not necessary to alarm them
                           of nothing. But go ahead.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           I sure hope we're not in the
                           Triangle.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           We might be a few nautical miles
                           from it. The compass always acts
                           weird if we're close by.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           But that has never happened on our
                           route before. Why now?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           I couldn't tell you. We just have
                           to wait until the fog clears.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - ENGINE ROOM
 
              Three CREW WORKERS check gauges and twist knobs. Green liquid
              spews out from a large pipe. It drools down.
 
              Gauge needles indicate HOT TEMPERATURE. STEAM PUFFS out of a
              few pipes.
 
              A crew worker spots the green liquid spewing from a leaky
              pipe. He kneels down and scrapes it up with his fingers. He's
              LOU.
 
                                    LOU
                           What the hell is this? Hey, Roger?
                           Check this out.
 
              He sniffs the green liquid.
 
                                    LOU
                                (continuing)
                           Whoa! That's some nasty shit.
 
              Roger walks over to Lou.

                                                                     27.
 
 
                                    ROGER
                           Yeah, what is it?
 
                                    LOU
                           I smell methane gas from some
                           liquid.
 
              The pipe next to lou BURSTS with flaming steam. It burns his
              face. He falls to the ground covering his face in pain. Roger
              rushes over to him.
 
              A large EXPLOSION erupts from other pipes engulfing Roger and
              Lou in flames.
 
              Crew worker #3, SIMON, rushes over to an INTERCOM.
 
                                    SIMON
                           Captain, we have a fire in the
                           engine room. Over. Oh, God!
 
              He runs to a fire extinguisher and grabs it. He takes it over
              to the fire and quickly sprays the FOAM extinguishing the
              flames on his fellow workers.
 
              Another EXPLOSION erupts from a ceiling pipe. It RATTLES the
              engine room and RIPS through the deck above them.
 
              EXT. CRUISE LINER - DECK - EVENING
 
              The EXPLOSION BURSTS through the deck, fire protrudes through
              it. The ship rattles and swayes in the water.

              Guillermo quickly stands up and rushes for the door. He sees
              a large ball of fire floating to the sky. A piercing SCREAM
              echoes outside.

                           Que demonios fue eso?
 
              The live band stops playing. A LOUDER SCREAM bellows out
              again. Guillermo heads out into the darkness in the thick fog.

              Guillermo slowly walks through the thick fog. He sways his
              arms around keeping the fog away from his view.

                           Anyone there? Hello?
 
              Guillermo makes his way to a fog light. The fire has
              dissipated. He bumps into someone. It's Francisco.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           What are you doing out here?

                           I heard an explosion. Is there
                           something wrong?

              Francisco turns around and sees a bloody Kim.

                           to tell me where he is.

                           The explosion killed him. We were
                           heading to the lobby but I got
                           lost in the fog and was finding my
                           way back and that's when I heard
                           the explosion.

                           Oh, shit.
 
              Charlie runs by.

                           I can't reach the engine room.
 
                                    KIM
                                (crying)
                           What happened?
 
              The green fog floats to the explosion. The thick fog fades
              away.
 
              Anna, Linda and Mrs. Yu rush over to Francisco and the group.
 
                                    MRS. YU
                           What happened?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Everyone stay here. Charlie,
                           follow me.
 
              Francisco heads over to the explosion. A few flames disappear
              in the fog. Francisco and Charlie approach Dexter and
              Catherine. They kneel down close to a body.
 
 

                                                                     30.
 
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           Captain, this man is badly injured.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Move away, please.
 
              Catherine and Dexter step aside. Charlie and Francisco
              approach the burned body of Mr. Yu.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                                (continuing)
                           Sir, can you speak? I need you to
                           speak to me and tell me if you can
                           move.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           He told us his name was Mr. Yu.
 
              Mr. Yu slowly extends his arm to Francisco.
 
                                    MR. YU
                           Make it stop. It hurts so much.
                           Make it stop.
 
              Mr. Yu's face is completely charred. His skin hangs from his
              face. His clothes are burned to his body. Blood pours out from
              his severely damaged left leg.
 
              Francisco grabs a hold of Mr. Yu's charred hand for comfort.
              Charlie turns away from the sight.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Charlie, go grab a stretcher.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Yes, captain.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Need some help?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Yeah. Come along.
 
              Dexter and Charlie leave. The grip on Mr. Yu's hand loosens
              up. Francisco tightens his grip but no response.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Mr. Yu? Mr. Yu? Oh, no. I think
                           he's dead.

                                                                     31.
 
 
              Mrs. Yu and Kim, both crying, rush over to Francisco.
 
                                    KIM
                           Is he okay? Please, tell me.
 
              Francisco nods, "no."
 
                                    MRS. YU
                           No! no!
 
              She strikes and pounds Francisco's chest. Catherine approaches
              both of them and stops Mrs. Yu from hitting Francisco.
              Francisco doesn't do anything. He feels her pain.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           It's not his fault. You have to
                           stop.
 
              The green fog FLOATS downwards into Mr. Yu's dead body. The
              green fog makes its way through his nostrils. It's sucked up
              like a vacuum then Mr. Yu's lifeless EYES open up.

              Charlie and Dexter descend down the cruise liner's steps
              leading to a small corridor with a fork in their path. Charlie
              holds a lantern and Dexter holds a flashlight.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           I have seen some pretty weird shit
                           in my time, but never something
                           like this. I have never seen a
                           dead person in my whole life
                           before, only on TV, but I know
                           it's fake because they're just
                           acting. It's scary seeing
                           something like that. I mean, first
                           they're right there in your face
                           having a little conversation and
                           then, POOF! They're dead, gone,
                           just like that.  No more
                           conversation and hello
                           transportation.
 
              He looks up towards the heavens.
 
 
 
 

                                                                     32.
 
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Well, life is like that. Life ends
                           and there's no way of preventing
                           it. No one knows when their time
                           will come. It just happens.
 
              They approach a corner. The lights FLICKER on and off. The
              halls are dark further up ahead of them.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                                (continuing)
                           Through here. When the time comes
                           the time comes. It's just fate.
                           You were there, what happened to
                           Mr. Yu?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Well, Catherine and I were
                           chatting when we heard the
                           explosion. It was pretty close to
                           us and we rushed to see what
                           happened. Catherine started taking
                           pictures because she thought it
                           would make a good story and that's
                           when we found...him.
 
              FAINT footsteps and SCREAMING ECHO from above them on the deck.
 
              Charlie searches for the light switch while Dexter searches
              for the stretcher.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           I found the light switch. That
                           must have been horrible.
 
              Charlie flips the switch and the lights turn on in the
              corridor. They both turn off the flashlight and the lantern.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                                (continuing)
                           Did you find the stretcher?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Not yet. There's nothing here.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Wait, inside the closet door
                           there. There might be one in there.
 

                                                                     33.
 
 
              They head to the closet door.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           It's locked. You got a key for
                           this?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           No, the crew usually leaves it
                           open. You sure it's locked?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           If I were sure do you think I
                           would be asking you for a key?
 
              Dexter forcefully pounds and pulls on the closet door.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Hey, stop that. You're going to
                           break it.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           I don't think that matters right
                           now.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Go right ahead then.
 
              Dexter resumes pounding.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                                (continuing)
                           Break the door handle.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           With what?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Well, kick it.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Look, you do it.
 
              Charlie gives one good kick, his foot breaks through the door.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Shit!
 
              Dexter laughs.
 

                                                                     34.
 
 
                                    CHARLIE
                                (continuing)
                           Just great, my leg's stuck.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Feel around for the stretcher.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           With my leg? You're crazy. Come on
                           help me out of here.
 
              Dexter helps him out of the door.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           I guess we can go in now.
 
              Dexter peeks through the crack in the door with his
              flashlight. He sees the stretcher folded in a corner.
 
              He peels off the excess wood and makes a big hole. He takes
              out the stretcher.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Let's go.
 
              HUMMING MOANS loom behind them.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                                (continuing)
                           Did you hear that?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           I was hoping you wouldn't say that?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Why?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Because I heard that sound ever
                           since we got down here. I thought
                           you knew what it was, like the
                           lights.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           What is that?
 
              They quiet down. The MOANING gets closer. Charlie and Dexter
              turn around. A long corridor rests their way and in stumbles
              dead Roger from the corner.

                                                                     35.
 
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Who's that?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           One of the...crew.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           He looks injured.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Roger? Are you okay?
 
              Roger quickly turns to them. His disfigured face frightens
              both of them.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           What's going on here? I don't
                           think that's normal.
 
              Roger makes his way toward Charlie and Dexter, slowly. Blood
              drips from his face and torn clothes.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Hey, Roger! HEY! Answer me!
 
              Simon crawls from the corner right behind Roger. His bottom
              torso missing, his intestines drag staining the floor with
              thick blood. He follows slowly behind Roger.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                                (continuing)
                           I think we better head back now.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           I agree 100 percent.
 
              Both turn around heading back to the stairs. Lou stumbles
              forward at them. His body hideously deformed. Charlie and
              Dexter jump back in fright.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Mother of God!
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Something really fucked up is
                           going on here. Shouldn't he be
                           dead? He looks dead.
 
 

                                                                     36.
 
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           I don't know, but we better get
                           our asses out of here.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           How the hell are we gonna get
                           through him? What if he does
                           something to us? I'm not willing
                           to take that fucking risk.
 
              Charlie slowly walks forward to Lou. He uses the sticks of the
              stretcher as a bat.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Look, don't get close, okay. I'll
                           use these. Just let us pass.
 
              He inches his way but Lou surprisingly lunges forward and
              attacks.
 
              Charlie uses the sticks and bats away. Dexter tackles Lou down
              to the floor.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Look, man. There is no need for
                           this. If you're hurt, you need
                           help and we can offer you that.
 
              Lou grabs a hold of Dexter's arm and bites down on his wrist.
              Dexter SCREAMS in pain.
 
              Charlie BATS at Lou's head. Dead Lou BITES off flesh from
              Dexter's wrist. Blood squirts on the walls and floor. Dexter
              CRIES in pain.
 
                                    DEXTER
                                (continuing)
                           Motherfucker!
 
              He stands up and kicks away at Lou.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Come on, let's go.
 
              Roger grabs Dexter's neck. It startles him.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Oh, shit!
 

                                                                     37.
 
 
              Charlie strikes Roger's hand. He let's go. Charlie and Dexter
              head up the steps and through the doorway to the upper deck of
              the cruise liner where they came in from.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - DECK
 
              Both quickly step out of the door and shut it.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Captain!
 
              No one in sight. Blood covers parts of the deck. The fog has
              gathered again, but is not as thick.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           My, God! What happened here?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           I don't know, but I don't want to
                           find out. Split up, go that way.
                           I'll go this way.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           I think not.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           You're right, stupid idea.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Very stupid idea.
 
              Francisco's cane lies on the ground covered in blood.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           The captain's cane.
 
              He picks it up. Blood flows down his hand.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           What do you think is going on?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Dexter, I have no fucking clue
                           right now.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Man, they were dead-looking.
 
 

                                                                     38.
 
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           They were dead. They died in the
                           explosion.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           How can they possibly be alive?
 
              Tony walks up to them stumbling and holding his head.
 
                                    TONY
                           HELP!
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           What happened here?
 
                                    TONY
                           They all went nuts.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Excuse me?
 
                                    TONY
                           All of them, they just went
                           psycho. They had no life what so
                           ever.
 
                                    DEXTER
                           Tony, did you do all this?
 
                                    TONY
                           NO! Are you nuts? You know better
                           than that. We can't hang around
                           here. We need to go to safer
                           grounds. Can't you hear them?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           What exactly happened?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           What if they're the same way?
 
                                    TONY
                           What do you mean?
 
                                    DEXTER
                           We encountered the crew
                           downstairs. They were dead.
 
 

                                                                     39.
 
 
                                    TONY
                           Oh, no. It's happening.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           What is?
 
                                    TONY
                           We have to head out of here. I'll
                           explain everything on the way.
 
              They walk slowly cautiously looking around.
 
              Dexter slips on a blood puddle. He gets up, blood covers his
              clothes.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Something really bad happened up
                           here.
 
              The fog thickens slightly.
 
              EXT. MIAMI CITY - NIGHT
 
              A FULL MOON illuminates the city. GREEN CLOUDS form above the
              city. Rain droplets soon drop down to the ground.
 
              EXT. PORFIRIO'S HOUSE - NIGHT
 
              Porfirio steps out of his house dressed in casual clothes, he
              locks his door. He looks up, a rain droplet strikes his cheek.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Please, don't tell me it's going
                           to rain?
 
              He holds a large framed painting. He walks over to his car and
              hears some faint SCREAMING. He pauses then places the painting
              in the back of the car and hops on.
 
              He starts the engine and drives off.
 
              INT. MOVING CAR - NIGHT
 
              Porfirio listens to some tunes. He passes by a
              CEMETERY.
 
 
 
 

                                                                     40.
 
 
              EXT. CEMETERY - NIGHT
 
              RAIN DROPLETS scatter to the grass. The water recedes
              downwards through the dirt.
 
              A GREEN MIST manifests. It's sucked up by the ground. The
              ground slowly begins to move. Tombstones tumble over cracking
              apart.
 
              Cement sarcophagus' resting on top of the ground slide open
              slowly. DEAD PEOPLE stretch their arms. Bones CRACK.
 
              Other DEAD PEOPLE rise struggling to escape from the ground.
              MOANS echo all around.
 
              A few stumbling DEAD PEOPLE walk around, some making their way
              to the streets.
 
              A few other CORPSES drag themselves on the ground and some
              walking CORPSES stumble on the crawlers.
 
              EXT. STREET LIGHT - NIGHT
 
              Porfirio passes by the street light.
 
              A VEHICLE behind him SCREECHES and wrecks flipping over onto
              its side.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           What in the hell?
 
              He looks at his rear view mirror to see the wrecked vehicle
              and then, BAM! He strikes a PEDESTRIAN.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           GEEZ!!
 
              The pedestrian SMASHES through the windshield. One arm and his
              head make it through.
 
              He presses the BRAKE pedal.
 
              The GTO comes to a complete halt.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           My, God! Are you okay, sir?
 

                                                                     41.
 
 
              The pedestrian does not respond. Coagulated blood drools down
              the dashboard and steering wheel.
 
              Porfirio looks around frightened, he notices some SHADOWY
              FIGURES walking along. He stares back at the pedestrian. He
              slowly reaches over to lift its head.
 
              The pedestrian looks up and reaches out with his free hand and
              grabs a hold of Porfirio's throat. The pedestrian's face is
              disfigured. Ripped flesh around the eye and mouth area hang
              down.
 
              Porfirio struggles to breathe. He SWATS and PUNCHES the
              pedestrian but it won't let go. He reaches down to his ankle
              to get his gun. He cannot reach it. He then notices his other
              gun in its holster on the passenger's seat. He reaches over to
              grab it.
 
              His face turns blue and gasps for air.
 
              The pedestrian inches closer. Its mouth opens up trying to
              bite down on Porfirio's neck.
 
              Porfirio grabs his gun, pulls it out of its holster and sticks
              it on the pedestrian's temple and pulls the trigger but
              nothing comes out.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing;
                                 screechy)
                           Oh, shit!
 
              He looks in the chamber, no bullets. He reaches for the glove
              compartment. He finds a box with bullets. He nervously opens
              it causing a few bullets to scatter to the mat.
 
              His eyes flutter repeatedly. He GASPS for air and wants to cry
              but cannot.
 
              Another DEAD PERSON approaches the GTO. It swats the driver's
              side but it does not open the door.
 
              Porfirio eyes the other dead person. He's dazed but notices
              the pedestrian loosening its other arm from the windshield.
              The pedestrian grabs Porfirio with its other hand.
 
              Porfirio places the bullet in the chamber. The pedestrian
              lunges forward to bite down. Porfirio closes the chamber and
              pulls back on the hammer.

                                                                     42.
 
 
              He places the barrel of the gun inside the pedestrian's mouth,
              it bites down on the barrel.
 
              Porfirio pulls the trigger many times, until the bullet flies
              out. The BLAST shatters the back of the pedestrian's head.
              Parts of the windshield scatter to the dashboard.
 
              Pools of coagulated blood drool down from the pedestrian's
              mouth and nose onto Porfirio.
 
              Porfirio releases the grip of the pedestrian's hands away from
              his throat. He sees the other dead person beside his window.
              He grabs some more bullets and fills the chamber.
 
              He lowers the window slightly and shoots the dead person in
              its head. The dead person falls to the ground lifeless.
 
              Porfirio sits back and rubs his throat. He COUGHS and thinks
              to himself. He looks at the pedestrian and steps out of the
              car, he looks around cautiously. No one in sight.
 
              EXT. GTO - NIGHT
 
              He reaches over to the pedestrian and pulls him out of the
              broken windshield. He drops him to the ground, a cellular
              phone slips out of a pocket. He picks it up and throws it in
              his car.
 
              The wrecked car behind him has already been engulfed with
              flames. A VICTIM SCREAMS for help.
 
                                    VICTIM
                           HELP ME, PLEASE!
 
              Porfirio walks over to the flaming car.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Ho-hold...
 
              Porfirio rubs his throat again. The pain still there. He
              clears his throat.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           ...I'm coming.
 
              He rushes over to help the victim. BOOM! The car explodes,
              blasting Porfirio off of his feet sending him a couple of feet
              back. The blast instantly kills the victim.

                                                                     43.
 
 
              Porfirio holds his head, blood slips through his fingers. He's
              in more pain now.
 
              He slowly gets up and enters his car. His face covered in
              blood now. A large gash on his forehead.
 
              He starts the engine and shuts the door. He reaches for a
              towel under the passenger's seat. He sits back up and is
              startled by the WRECKED VEHICLE VICTIM, who is now covered in
              fire. He walks behind the GTO heading to Porfirio.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           What the hell?
 
              The victim SLAMS its fiery arms on the trunk, angered.
 
              Porfirio reverses his car and runs over the victim. He puts it
              back in drive and speeds away.
 
              INT. MOVING GTO - STREETS - NIGHT
 
              Porfirio quickly presses the brake pedal. A beige Chrysler
              idles at a RED light.
 
              The GTO screeches on the pavement and comes to a halt. It
              comes close to striking the vehicle. Smoke arises from the
              back tires.
 
              The RED light changes to GREEN. The Chrysler doesn't move.
              Porfirio HONKS his horn. The car does not move. Porfirio
              passes the vehicle and peeks in the driver's side.
 
              He sees a body hunched over on the steering wheel. He also
              notices dried blood on the windshield. Porfirio drives away.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - NIGHT
 
              Mr. Yu's body rests on the ground with a puddle of blood
              accumulating around him. Francisco and the crowd are around
              the corpse.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Who else is missing?
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           I saw three others by the cabana.
 
 

                                                                     44.
 
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           We don't have a cabana.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           Well, whatever the heck you call
                           it.
 
              Mrs. Yu clings to Kim, crying.
 
                                    LINDA
                           Oyen eso?
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Que?
 
                                    LINDA
                           Shh, quieto! Oigan.
 
              A soft MOAN looms beyond the fog.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           What's that?
 
              TWO FIGURES walk out from the fog. It's Joanne and Lawrence,
              dead.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           That's them.
 
              Francisco walks over to them.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                                (continuing)
                           No, don't!
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Why? What's wrong?
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           I don't think they're right.
 
              The two are seriously burned. Steam rises from their bodies.
              Their faces are charred and torn.
 
                                    LINDA
                           Ay, Madre Purisima! Son demonios.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           What did she say?

                                                                     45.
 
 
                                    ANNA
                           She says they're demons.

                           That's not right. They should be
                           dead.
 
              Mr. Yu rises up slowly. Mrs. Yu notices him. He bites down on
              Francisco's bad leg.
 
              Francisco falls back. He grabs his white cane and strikes away
              at Mr. Yu. Mrs. Yu cries out.
 
                                    KIM
                           Stop it!
 
              Francisco knocks Mr. Yu's jaw away from his mouth. Teeth
              scatter to the deck. Catherine, Anna and Kim SCREAM.
 
                                    MRS. YU
                           What did you do? My husband.
 
              Mrs. Yu runs to Mr. Yu and hugs him. He looks at her, his
              blood flowing from his mouth frightens his wife.
 
                                    MRS. YU
                                (continuing)
                           Darling?
 
              Mr. Yu sinks his upper teeth into her neck. She SCREAMS in
              pain.
 
                                    KIM
                           Daddy?!
 
              Guillermo rushes over to Mrs. Yu. He pulls Mr. Yu away from
              her. Blood pours out of her neck. She clings to her wound. Kim
              rushes over to her.
 
              Lawrence gets closer to Catherine.
 
                                    ANNA
                           Ms. Look out!
 
              Catherine turns around and sees Lawrence. She SMACKS him with
              her camera. The camera breaks apart.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           My camera! My story!

                                                                     46.
 
 
              Lawrence turns back to Catherine, enraged. He lifts his arms
              and chokes her.
 
              Francisco turns to Catherine, he bends over to pick up his
              cane. Joanne grabs a hold of his arm and startles him.
 
              Francisco kicks Joanne knocking her to the ground. Francisco
              grabs his cane and heads to Catherine. He SWATS his bloody
              cane at Lawrence. He breaks his jaw. It hangs from its socket.
 
              Lawrence lets go of Catherine and heads for Francisco.
              Guillermo tackles Lawrence down. Catherine rubs her throat.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                                (continuing)
                           Thank you.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Don't mention it. We need to get
                           out of here.
 
              Guillermo struggles to keep Lawrence down.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Can someone please help me?
 
              Francisco stabs Lawrence twice through the eye. Lawrence drops
              to the ground, blood quickly pours out of his eye. Joanne
              crawls to Linda.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                                (continuing)
                           Mama!
 
              Guillermo rushes over to his mother. Francisco grabs Catherine
              and pulls her away from Joanne's path. His cane falls to the
              ground.
 
              Guillermo kicks at Joanne. He grabs his mother and pulls her
              to safety. Kim leads her mother with Francisco and the group.
              Anna joins in.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           What's going on here? They're dead.
 
              Mr. Yu gets back up and walks after them.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           They're coming back to life.

                                                                     47.

                                    GUILLERMO
                           You got to call somebody to pick
                           us up.

                           can call from there.
 
              Francisco and the group head to the navigation room.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - NAVIGATING ROOM
 
              Francisco lets everyone in the room. He closes and locks the
              door. He walks over to the ham radio.
 
                                    FRANCISCO

              Static VOICES emerge out of the speaker.

              High STATIC interrupts the voice. It vanishes.

                           Triangle or not? What kind of a

                           before. It's as if someone led us

                           world, mostly in the Triangle.
                           That's why ships and airplanes
                           disappear, because they burn up
                           and sink.

              Porfirio arrives SKIDDING with the GTO on the slick pavement.
              He comes close to striking a post. He steps out of his car
              quickly and rushes inside the entrance to the pub.

              Porfirio shuts the doors and turns around.
 
              A SHOTGUN BLAST rings out. The pellets strikes the door beside
              Porfirio's head. Sam aims a smoking shotgun at Porfirio.
 
              Porfirio raises his arms over his head.

              A short pause between them.

                           What happened?
 
              Porfirio scopes the room and sees seven dead bodies lying on
              the floor. Puddles of blood flow down the floor cracks. Blood
              on walls slither downward.
 
                                    SAM
                           Exactly what's happening all over
                           town. Don't you hear the gunfire
                           and screams around the city?
 
                                    PORFIRIO

                                    SAM
                           I accidentally blew out my
                           television.
 
              Porfirio looks over at the television monitor. Sure enough,
              it's blown out.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           We got to get out of here.
 
              Two DEAD WALKERS BURST through the door. One falls to the
              ground.
 
              BANG! BANG! Sam fires a few rounds. He manages to strike the
              second dead walker. Its arm flings out of its shoulder to the
              ground.
 
              Three other DEAD WALKERS make themselves known.
 
                                    SAM
                           You need to get out of here, I'll
                           cover you. You can come for me
                           later.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           How? The entrance is full of those
                           things.
 
 

                                                                     52.
 
 
                                    SAM
                           Up the stairs and out the balcony.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           You sure you're safe here?
 
                                    SAM
                           Just get!
 
              Sam runs out of ammo, he drops his shotgun on the counter and
              pulls out another shotgun from beneath the counter.
 
              Porfirio runs up the stairs.
 
              INT. SAMMY'S PUB - UPSTAIRS HALLWAY
 
              Porfirio locates a door leading to the balcony. Sam continues
              firing.
 
              INT. SAMMY'S PUB - ROOM WITH BALCONY
 
              Porfirio enters the room. He sees the window where the balcony
              is. He heads for it. He reaches the window and notices TWO
              other DEAD PEOPLE waltzing in.
 
              Porfirio pops open the window and walks out onto the balcony.
 
              EXT. BALCONY
 
              He locates the ladder but it's raised. He pushes the ladder
              down, it's stuck. He STOMPS on the ladder making it shake. The
              ladder lowers a little.
 
              A frustrated Porfirio continues jumping and STOMPING, shaking
              the whole balcony. The ladder does not lower, but a few screws
              become loose.
 
              The balcony SQUEAKS. Porfirio jumps up once more landing with
              all of his MIGHT. When he lands the balcony swings down
              breaking from the wall. The balcony sways from side to side
              clinging on to one bolt.
 
              Porfirio grabs a hold of the ladder. The ladder SQUEAKS and
              lets loose. It breaks from its hinges. He falls to the ground.
 
 
 
 
 

                                                                     53.
 
 
              EXT. SAMMY'S PUB - ENTRANCE
 
              Porfirio lands on the ground on his feet unbalanced. He
              stumbles backwards trying to hold on to anything to keep him
              from falling to the ground. He BURSTS back inside of the pub.
 
              INT. SAMMY'S PUB
 
              He stumbles backwards pushing away some CORPSES and lands on
              the bloody floor. He faces the ceiling.
 
              Sam continues shooting and notices Porfirio on the ground.
 
              Three DEAD PEOPLE hunch over Porfirio about to attack.
              Porfirio pulls out his gun from the belt of his pants and a
              smaller one from his boot.
 
              He points it at the three dead people and SHOOTS away until
              the three fall to the ground truly dead.
 
              One DEAD WALKER crawls behind Porfirio. Sam leaps behind the
              bar and heads over to the crawler. He flips him over and
              points the shotgun at his head. He COCKS it and pulls the
              trigger. BANG! The crawler's head shatters apart.
 
              Sam lifts Porfirio to his feet.
 
                                    SAM
                           Come on, to your feet. It's time
                           to leave.
 
              Sam leads Porfirio out of the pub.
 
              EXT. SAMMY'S PUB - ENTRANCE
 
              Sam and Porfirio head to the GTO and enter it. Porfirio starts
              the engine and PEELS OFF from the sight.
 
              INT. MOVING CAR - NIGHT
 
              Sam fastens his safety belt. He looks behind at his pub then
              at the back seat. He sees the painting.
 
                                    SAM
                           Oh, that's a beautiful painting.
 
 
 
 

                                                                     54.
 
 
              EXT. MOVING CAR
 
              Porfirio skids to another street passing a red light. He
              strikes a DEAD WALKER throwing it across the street.
 
              INT. MOVING CAR
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           We need to head to safer grounds.
                           Call up Rigo.
 
                                    SAM
                           With what?
 
              Porfirio locates the bloody cell phone on the dashboard. He
              grabs it and hands it to Sam.
 
                                    SAM
                                (continuing)
                           This could be diseased.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Please, call Rigo.
 
              Sam dials a number.
 
                                    SAM
                           Hey, Rigo. We need to crash at
                           your place. We're experiencing
                           some trouble. It's me and
                           Porfirio, we'll be arriving
                           shortly.
 
              Sam presses a button to hang up the phone. Porfirio skids the
              GTO again.
 
                                    SAM
                                (continuing)
                           Easy, easy, easy! We don't want to
                           end up like them now.
 
              EXT. RIGO'S HOUSE - NIGHT
 
              The GTO SKIDS to the front of the garage and almost strikes
              the garage door.
 
              Both Porfirio and Sam step out in a hurry from the GTO. Sam
              opens the back door and pulls out the painting.
 

                                                                     55.
 
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Sam! There's no time for that!
 
                                    SAM
                           Hey, I've been waiting a long time
                           for this. I ain't waiting
                           again.
 
              Sam and Porfirio pass a large pole on the lawn that holds a
              waving United States flag.
 
              INT. RIGO'S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM
 
              RIGO, a 33 year old black tall muscular soldier, lies down on
              a large couch listening to some tunes on the radio. He cleans
              a hand gun while at it.
 
              Medallions and badges hang on his walls. A large American flag
              hangs on a wall by itself with small spot lights illuminating
              it.
 
              Porfirio KNOCKS at his front door.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Just a minute.
 
                                    PORFIRIO (O.S.)
                                (scared tone)
                           Hurry up! There is no minute.
 
              Rigo opens the door and sees a blood-drenched Porfirio shaking
              in his shoes and Sam holding a painting.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Shit, what happened to you guys?
 
              Porfirio and Sam step inside the house.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           They're out there, man!
 
                                    RIGO
                           Who's out there?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Dead people.
 
 
 

                                                                     56.
 
 
                                    RIGO
                           You're nuts, man. You watch too
                           many horror movies.
 
              Porfirio looks out the windows, he locks the door.
 
                                    SAM
                           He's telling the truth. There are
                           dead people coming back to life.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Do you have any weapons?
 
              He heads to the kitchen and locks the door. He peeks out of
              the windows.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Man, I'm loaded with them.
                                (to Sam)
                           What the hell is he doing? Why the
                           hell do you need weapons?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           To kill dead people!
 
                                    RIGO
                           Quit that shit. What's going on?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Rigo, I don't know what's going
                           on. But SOMETHING is going on.
                           I've run into people along the way
                           that were already dead before I
                           hit them with my car.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Why the hell are you hitting
                           people with your car? That's
                           illegal you know that, Porfirio?
                           You're a police officer, you
                           should know that. Just because
                           you're in law enforcement doesn't
                           necessarily give you the fucking
                           privileges of breaking the laws
                           the government lays upon you!
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           No shit, man! I didn't do it on
                           purpose, I was going 80 m.p.h.

                                                                     57.
 
 
                                    RIGO
                           That's illegal too.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Yeah, I know it's illegal! But
                           they're after us.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Well, it certainly appears to be
                           the situation here. Now, you two
                           leave before the police get here.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           The police are not after me, Rigo.
                           It's dead people!
 
                                    RIGO
                           Get the hell out of my house!
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Rigo, look at me! I'm drenched in
                           blood.
 
                                    RIGO
                           I can see that. Did you kill
                           someone? I bet you're in on it
                           too, Sam.
 
                                    SAM
                           Cut that shit out, Rigo.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           They can't die if they're dead
                           already! Look out the window,
                           you'll see for yourself.
 
              Rigo heads for the window and peeks out. He sees nothing.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Nothing. No one's out there. Look,
                           you two are my friends and I
                           respect you and all, but you gotta
                           understand that you have to get
                           out.
 
                                    SAM
                           Look, let's go outside.
 
 

                                                                     58.
 
 
              Rigo goes to the door and unlocks it. He heads outside.
              Porfirio and Sam follow.
 
              EXT. RIGO'S HOUSE
 
              Porfirio and Sam step outside and follow Rigo. Rigo pushes
              both away and rushes to the door.
 
                                    RIGO
                           You, stay out.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Rigo! Please!
 
              MOANING echoes in the distance. Rigo stops in his tracks. The
              MOANING gets louder.
 
              Porfirio and Sam stay still, Rigo turns around and beholds a
              dozen PEOPLE walking down the sidewalks and street.
 
                                    RIGO
                           What the hell is that?
 
                                    SAM
                           Something wicked is in the air.
 
              Porfirio turns around and sees the dead people approaching. He
              heads for the door, Sam follows.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Get in, get in!
 
              INT. RIGO'S HOUSE
 
              Porfirio closes the door and locks it. Rigo panics.
 
                                    RIGO
                           What the hell was that?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Dead people.
 
                                    RIGO
                                (stutters)
                           Dead people?
 
                                    SAM
                           Now, do you believe us?
 

                                                                     59.
 
 
              Rigo doesn't say a word, but nods in agreement.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           We need weapons. Do you have any
                           we can use?
 
              Rigo, still in awe, lifts his arm and points to his bedroom
              down a hall.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           Come on.
 
              Rigo doesn't move. He's frozen with fear. Porfirio heads to
              the bedroom.
 
              INT. RIGO'S HOUSE - BEDROOM
 
              Porfirio opens the bedroom door. Rigo's bedroom looks like an
              army suite. Pictures of army buddies, posters of movies and
              army things hang on his walls.
 
              A blanket in the form of the US flag rests on his bed. Blue
              pillows with white stars complete the flag.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           What the hell, Rigo? Rigo, get in
                           here. I don't know where the hell
                           I am.
 
              Rigo rushes into the bedroom, Sam joins him.
 
                                    RIGO
                           How many are out there?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           I don't know but I ran into a few
                           on the way here. Where are the
                           guns?
 
                                    RIGO
                           There are some under the bed and
                           some in the closet.
 
              Porfirio looks under the bed and pulls out a box that reads,
              "Bad Ass Package: Handle with Care."
 
              A lot of guns and ammunition peek out from the box. Porfirio
              pulls out a few guns. He hands some to Rigo and Sam.

                                                                     60.
 
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Damn, Rigo. Where did you get all
                           these guns from?
 
                                    RIGO
                           They're collectibles. I should
                           call Chuy and Chente.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           I thought they had no phone.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Oh, they do. It's just secret.
                           They don't want anyone to know
                           their number.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Go call them up then.
 
              Rigo heads to his dresser table and grabs a small business
              card from his wallet. He turns his back on Porfirio and Sam.
              He dials the secret number.
 
              Porfirio notices Rigo's back face him. He completes the
              dialing and turns back around.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Hey, Chuy. Listen up, we need your
                           help.
 
              Rigo grabs a Zippo lighter and lights the business card on
              fire. The fire consumes the card. He hangs up the phone and
              looks up to Porfirio who has nothing to say about what he just
              saw.
 
                                    RIGO
                                (continuing)
                           They'll be here shortly.
 
              EXT. CRUISE LINER - NIGHT
 
              The small cruise liner floats in the middle of a light green
              fog. The fog lights on the ship continue WHIRLING around. Dark
              smoke continues to float from the exploded deck.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - NAVIGATING ROOM
 
              Francisco and the rest of the survivors wait for the dead to
              stop banging on the doors.

                                                                     61.
 
 
                                    KIM
                           We have to do something. We can't
                           just wait in here.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           She's right. This place is a giant
                           mouse trap and we're the mice.
                           Right now, their power can't break
                           through those doors, but if they
                           continue pounding they will soon
                           make their way in. We do need to
                           do something. Now, the time that
                           we have we should plan out
                           something.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           I don't want to leave, I'm scared.
 
                                    ANNA
                           Yeah, what if we don't make it?
 
                                    LINDA
                           Tenemos que tratar algo. No nomas
                           debemos de quedarnos aqui. Somos
                           pendejos si nos atrapamos aqui
                           como idiotas.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           She's right.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           You understand Spanish?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           I'm fucking Puerto Rican! Well if
                           we're going to escape from this
                           mouse trap, we need to come up
                           with something fast. I think
                           they're getting restless.
 
              Joanne POUNDS her fist on the window of the door and CRACKS
              it. She continues POUNDING until the crack gets bigger and
              bigger.
 
              Mrs. Yu falls to the ground. Kim falls to the ground with her
              to stop her from hitting the ground hard.
 
                                    KIM
                           Mom! Mom!

                                                                     62.
 
 
              She begins to cry and tightly holds her mother.
 
                                    KIM
                                (continuing)
                           My mama! Please, help her. Please!
                           Do something. I don't want her to
                           die. Not her, not her.
 
              Francisco approaches Kim, kneels down next to her and checks
              Mrs. Yu's pulse from her neck.
 
              Francisco looks up at Kim. He looks back down at Mrs. Yu and
              then shuts her eyes. Kim CRIES out and tightly squeezes her
              mother.
 
              Green liquid oozes out of Mrs. Yu's neck.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           I'm sorry, Kim.
 
              Catherine turns away and holds her chest. She hides her tears
              from the rest, but they show. Anna sees this and the domino
              effect occurs with her.
 
                                    ANNA
                                (crying)
                           Oh, God! We're not going to make
                           it, are we?
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Don't say that, Anna. We are going
                           to make it, we just have to be
                           strong.
 
                                    ANNA
                           We should never have gotten those
                           stupid tickets. Never have!
 
              Linda Walks over to her daughter and hugs her.
 
                                    LINDA
                           Ya, quieta mi hijita. Quieta.
                           Pronto se terminara esta diabolica
                           situacion.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           What are we going to do?
 
              She wipes her tears away with her sleeve.

                                                                     63.
 
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Is there another way out of here
                           other than that way?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           The only way out of here is
                           through this emergency exit.
 
              He points to a trap door close to the steering wheel.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                                (continuing)
                           But it leads down to the engine
                           room. I haven't checked the engine
                           room. It could be blocked with
                           debris.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Well, that's a risk I'm willing to
                           take. If it gets us away from them
                           then damn it we should take it.
                           Does everyone agree?
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           I feel a lot safer if we just get
                           out of here. I don't want to hear
                           that noise anymore, it's driving
                           me insane.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Mama?
 
                                    LINDA
                           Yo estoy lista. Vamonos.
 
                                    ANNA
                           I agree too. I want to leave now.
 
              Joanne manages to break the window. She cuts her hand, she
              doesn't mind it at all. Thick blood slowly drips from her hand.
 
              Kim CRIES out, the rest get spooked.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Okay then, it's decided. We move,
                           now!
 
              Francisco opens the trap door. It is a small open, but large
              enough to fit all of them.

                                                                     64.
 
 
              Joanne and and Mr. Yu continue POUNDING on the door. The door
              shakes VIOLENTLY, they really want to get in. Then the dead
              band joins in.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                                (continuing)
                           Quick, quick! I'll go last.
 
              Francisco helps Linda, Anna, Catherine and Guillermo down. Kim
              stays with her mother.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                                (continuing)
                           Come on, Kim? Let's go.
 
                                    KIM
                           No, I want to stay with my mother.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           It's too late for that now, Kim.
                           She would have wanted you to get
                           to safer grounds.
 
                                    KIM
                           I don't care. I don't have anyone
                           else.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Kim, I am not going to leave
                           without you. If you stay, I'm
                           going to stay.
 
                                    KIM
                           You can't, you'll die.
 
              Mr. Yu pushes his leg forward through the small crack the door
              makes.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Kim, give me your hand, we need to
                           leave now. Please. Do it for your
                           mother and father.
 
                                    GUILLERMO (O.S.)
                           Get your asses down here! What's
                           the big hold up?
 
 
 

                                                                     65.
 
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Come on. You're going to cause
                           everyone to be in more danger than
                           they really are.
 
              Kim reaches out her hand, Francisco grabs it. The door breaks
              open and the band, Joanne and Mr. Yu battle to enter. Kim
              SCREAMS in fright.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                                (continuing)
                           Come on!
 
              He pulls her forward. Mrs. Yu wakes up from death sleep and
              manages to grab Kim's leg. Kim SCREAMS some more.
 
                                    GUILLERMO (O.S.)
                           What the hell is going on up there?
 
              Francisco rushes over to Mrs. Yu and stomps on her arm and her
              head. She lets go. Mr. Yu makes his way. Francisco pulls Kim
              and leads her down the trap door. Kim drops down, Guillermo
              barely catches her.
 
              Francisco jumps in the hole. Mr. Yu grabs Francisco's hand and
              falls forward with motion. They both land through the trap
              door landing hard on the floor.
 
              Francisco's bad leg cracks.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - CORRIDOR
 
              Mr. Yu falls on top of Francisco. Guillermo pulls Mr. Yu out
              of the way, he staggers back and falls on his butt. Guillermo
              helps Francisco to his feet.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Thanks. Come on, let's go.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           We're just going to leave that
                           thing here? What if it chases us?
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           They're not that fast. We can out
                           run them.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Follow me, quickly.

                                                                     66.
 
 
              Francisco leads the group down a long corridor. He opens a
              door and leads the group through there.

                           What happened up there?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Kim's mother turned into one of
                           them.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           It must have been the bite on her
                           neck. It must be a virus that
                           spreads even when you're dead.
                           Maybe that's why they're coming
                           back to life.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Anything's possible. All I want to
                           do now is to get out of here as
                           fast as we can and figure out a
                           way to communicate our S.O.S.
 
                                    ANNA
                           Captain, didn't you get bit?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Yes, on my leg.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           You're going to turn into one of
                           them.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Actually, no, I'm not.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           But you were bit.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Yes, I was, but I have a wooden
                           leg.
 
              He TAPS on his wooden leg.
 
 
 

                                                                     67.

                                (continuing)
                           All we have to do now is walk down
                           these steps and head down that
                           pathway over there and through
                           that door. We should then enter
                           the engine room.
 
              Francisco leads the group down the steps and head their way to
              the door. Francisco opens the door.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - ENGINE ROOM
 
              Dark smoke rises from some broken pipes. No sign of any
              movement except the smoke.
 
              Francisco and the group walk under the large gaping hole above
              them.
 
                                    LINDA
                           Hijo de puta.

                           What happened here?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Looks like the explosion came from
                           these pipes.
 
                                    ANNA
                           What would have caused the
                           explosion?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Most likely the gases from the
                           Triangle. Come on, let's move out
                           of here.
 
              Francisco leads the group down another corridor.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - CORRIDOR
 
              Dried blood streaks are etched on the floor leading down the
              corridor.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           What is this? It's sticky.
 
              Their shoes stick to the blood.

                                                                     68.
 
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Looks like blood.

                           Oh, sick.

                           I don't know if I can make it.
 
              Francisco grabs Kim's shoulders to face her.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           We are going to make it. No one is
                           going to quit on me, understand?
 
              He lets her go.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                                (continuing)
                           No one. And I'm talking to
                           everyone here. Cooler minds
                           prevail even in situations like
                           these, Kim. Even though this,
                           whatever is happening, seems like
                           a bad dream it's real and it's
                           happening and there is nothing we
                           can do about it. We are stuck in
                           a situation in which are asses
                           must get through. Now, if we stick
                           together and work together, we can
                           make it. We've made it this far.
                           We can make it further, hopefully
                           to land. We need to follow that
                           path and we need to do it now.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Sorry for interrupting your
                           speech, Captain. I don't mean to
                           be a prick here or anything but
                           shouldn't we get our asses out of
                           here and follow that path right
                           about now? Before those dead fucks
                           start figuring out that we're
                           making a large u-turn?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Let's head out.

                           What if this blood belongs to
                           those engineers? What if they're
                           up ahead? Then what?
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Then we kick some dead ass. I
                           don't care what we do. We didn't
                           travel all the way the fuck over
                           here just to get stuck again.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           He's right. We must fight back.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           But how do you kill something
                           that's already dead?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           I took one of the tourists out by
                           hitting it on the head many times.
                           Maybe if we land heavy blows to
                           the brain they can be stopped.

                           What did she say?
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           She said take them down.
 
              Roger appears from the darkness down the corridor. He walks
              slowly with stiff motions. He MOANS evilly.
 
                                    ANNA
                           We don't have weapons to attack
                           with. What are we going to use?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           If we don't let them bite us, then
                           we're safe. For now, we need to
                           prevent them from attacking us.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           If we tackle them down, we can
                           make a run for it.

                           How many crew workers do you have
                           on this ship?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           About half a dozen including the
                           band. Oh, shit, the band.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Fuck the band, they're dead. He's
                           getting close, we need to strike
                           now.
 
              Guillermo rushes forward at Roger and drop kicks him on the
              chest. Roger falls to the ground hard. Guillermo falls to the
              ground dislocating his shoulder again. He CRIES in pain.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                                (continuing)
                           My arm! My arm came loose.
 
              An eerie MOAN looms beside him. It's Simon dragging himself
              around from the fork in the corridor. He heads for the falling
              Guillermo.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                                (continuing)
                           Help!
 
              Francisco quickly limps toward him. His wooden leg buckles
              from the crack and breaks in two. He falls to the ground.
 
              Catherine follows Francisco and heads for Guillermo. She helps
              him up. Simon inches closer.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Here.
 
              Francisco tosses his wooden leg at Catherine. She BATS away at
              Simon repeatedly on the head. Simon's head cracks open, thick
              blood flows out. He falls to the ground dying. A green mist
              floats away from him and vanishes.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           There's some steps leading to a
                           door over there.
 
              Anna and Kim help Francisco up to his feet.
 

                                                                     71.
 
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           That must be the exit to the deck.
 
              Roger gets up and behind him follows Lou.
 
              Kim and Anna help Francisco to the steps.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                                (continuing)
                           We must hurry out. Are you alright?
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           I think I dislocated my shoulder.
                           I need someone to put it back into
                           place.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           We can do that on the deck.
                           They're getting too close.
 
              Catherine opens the door slowly. No one in sight. The fog
              dissipates slowly. They make their way out.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - DECK
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Can someone relocate my shoulder
                           now?
 
                                    ANNA
                           I'll do it.
 
              Anna grabs his arm and pulls back hard. His shoulder SNAPS
              back in place. He SHOUTS in pain.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Damn it to hell that hurt! FUCK!
 
                                    LINDA
                           Y ahora que?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           We must give out our S.O.S. Our
                           distress signal.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           How are we going to do that
                           without a radio?
 

                                                                     72.
 
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           We can send out a beacon with the
                           flare guns.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Well, let's do it then.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           One problem though. They're at the
                           control deck.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           What the fuck, man! We were just
                           there!
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Charlie's got some in his cabin.
                           We need to find him.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Lots of luck that's going to do
                           us. He's probably turned into one
                           of those dead fucks!
 
                                    KIM
                           I think we should keep on moving.
                           If we stay here we're going to get
                           it.
 
              Joanne, the band and more CREW show themselves from the lobby.
 
                                    ANNA
                           There's more of them. We're going
                           to die out here. It is true what
                           they say about the Bermuda
                           Triangle.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Come on, this way.
 
              Francisco leads them away from the dead. Kim and Catherine
              help him. They head to the end of the ship.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                                (continuing)
                           I'm sorry you guys have to help me
                           through this. I'm just slowing you
                           guys down.
 

                                                                     73.
 
 
                                    KIM
                           Stop talking that way. We all need
                           to get ourselves out of here, even
                           in situations like these. Remember
                           what you told us?
 
              Anna slips on some blood and falls over board. She clings on
              with one hand on the railing. Guillermo and Linda help her.
 
                                    ANNA
                           Help me!
 
              She looks down. The water splashes on the ship.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           I can't hold on much longer.
 
              She slips slowly.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                                (continuing)
                           Stop moving around, sis!
 
              Francisco hops forward to help them out. Too late, Anna falls
              to the ocean, Linda follows still grabbing onto her daughter.
              Guillermo follows through too, but he holds on to the railing.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                                (continuing)
                           NO! Mama!
 
              Francisco grabs his Guillermo's arm. He struggles to pull him
              up. Charlie and Tony arrive. They help Francisco.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Charlie, you're alive!
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Come on, we can celebrate later.
 
              Charlie, Tony and Francisco pull Guillermo up to the deck.
              Guillermo cries out to his family.
 
              Linda and Anna struggle to stay above water.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           We need life preservers.
 
 

                                                                     74.
 
 
                                    KIM
                           I saw some lifesavers over by that
                           wall over there.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Go get them, quickly.
 
              Kim rushes to get the lifesavers Charlie follows.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                                (continuing)
                           Hold on, we're getting you some
                           help. Try to stay afloat.
 
                                    KIM
                           These should do it.
 
              She tosses them overboard. Linda and Anna fit them on. They
              stay afloat.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Now we need to find some rope to
                           pull them up.
 
              Catherine helps Francisco to his one good foot.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           What happened to your leg?
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           We left it behind.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Here's your cane. You'll need it.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Thanks. Where's that guy you were
                           with?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           He was bit and turned into one of
                           them. Tony and I tossed him over
                           board.
 
              The dead get closer.
 
              Francisco yells to Anna and her mother.
 
 

                                                                     75.
 
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Stay calm, we will get you out of
                           there shortly. Charlie, we need
                           some flares, we need you to go get
                           them. I can do it myself, but I
                           only have one fucking leg.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           I'll go with you Charlie.
                           Catherine and Kim you stay with
                           him. Give me your cane.
 
              Francisco tosses his cane at Guillermo.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                                (continuing)
                           Let's go.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           But what about you guys? What are
                           you going to do to protect
                           yourselves.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Don't worry about us now. We need
                           the flares. Get them as fast as
                           you can.
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Come on, let's go already.
 
              Charlie and Guillermo make a mad dash to the navigation room.
 
                                    CATHERINE
                           I'm scared now.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           Me too.
                                (to Tony)
                           Who are you?
 
                                    TONY
                           The guy who knows what's going on.
 
                                    FRANCISCO
                           So, what's going on then?
 
 
 

                                                                     76.
 
 
                                    TONY
                           A curse upon humanity. The dead
                           are coming back to life because we
                           opened Pandora's box.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - NAVIGATING ROOM
 
              Charlie locates the flares in a flash. They are located inside
              a box on the wall. The words on the box reads, "Emergency
              Flares. Use With Care!"
 
              Charlie runs out of the room.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER
 
              He bumps into Lou. The flares fall to the ground. Lou's bloody
              face and broken teeth scare Charlie. Guillermo grabs a flare
              gun from the ground and blows out a flare at Lou.
 
              The flare lands in Lou's eye. His face burns up. He stammers
              backwards but composes himself and walks back to Charlie.
 
              Guillermo rushes at him and tackles him to the ground.
              Guillermo's arm burns from the fire.
 
              Charlie gets up collecting all of the falling flare guns and
              ammo flares.
 
              Guillermo pulls his shirt off and throws it on Lou. The fire
              engulfs Lou fully.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           Are you all right?
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           Don't worry about me. Let's just
                           get the hell out of here.
 
              Charlie and Guillermo hurry to the others. They pass by the
              guitarist dead on the ground. No sight of the other dead.
 
              They hurry to the other side. No sign of Tony, Catherine, Kim
              or Francisco.
 
              Splattered blood covers the whole deck.
 
 
 
 

                                                                     77.
 
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                                (continuing)
                           Something went on here. I think we
                           got here too late.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           This cannot be happening!
 
                                    GUILLERMO
                           We got to use the flares.
 
              Charlie sets the box on the ground and grabs a flare gun. He
              points it to the sky and pulls the trigger. The flare rises
              high above the clouds lighting up the sky a bright red.
 
              Guillermo looks out into the ocean. Anna and Linda are no
              longer there. A tear rolls down his check.
 
              Charlie approaches him. They both look out into the ocean.
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           I'm sorry. I'm sorry all of this
                           had to happen.

                                (wiping away his
                                 tears)
                           Can't we use the safety rafts?
 
                                    CHARLIE
                           That's something that we should
                           have done a long time ago.
 
              Eerie MOANS materialize behind Charlie and Guillermo. A line
              up of dead people stagger to them. Francisco appearing from
              the mist hopping forward. Blood covers his entire clothes.
 
              Catherine follows behind him, she's badly ripped apart from
              her neck to her mid torso. Then the rest behind her. Except
              for Tony and Kim who are not there.
 
              Francisco stumbles to the ground, Catherine trips over him, a
              few other dead people fall as well. They quickly try to get
              up.
 
              Charlie and Guillermo freeze, their eyes open wide. They turn
              around and notice the horror.
 
 

                                                                     78.
 
 
              They both reach for the flare guns and start firing away. The
              flares reach Joanne, the drummer and a crawling Francisco.
              They BURN up but continue walking forward.
 
              Charlie and Guillermo run out of flares. The dead gather close
              and attack. SCREAMS bellow out from both of them.
 
              The dead tear away and bite down on their legs, neck, arms,
              etc. Their dying SCREAMS echo out around the cruise liner.
 
              Large amounts of blood scatter to the ground. Their bones
              ripped apart from their flesh by clawing action from the dead.
 
              The base player pulls Charlie's jaw from his mouth. The fire
              fades away from Francisco and Joanne. They are burned severely
              above their torso.

                           There's probably some news
                           bulletin on what's happening.

                           It appears to be the situation.

                           converter box or else the images
                           won't show.
 
              Porfirio gets up and heads for the TV, he pulls the knob back
              and it detaches from the set. He puts the knob back into
              place. He flips a switch on the converter box to "ON."
 
              The television set ignites to "ON." Images slowly appear from
              the old-looking monitor.
 
              Porfirio commences to set more guns out onto the table.

                           the strange sightings and urge

                           Thorpe, you bring us some more
                           details on this horrible
                           situation. Do you have any
                           information pertaining to the
                           cadavers?

                           It's happening all over the
                           eastern part of the coast. We are
                           being populated, not by a virus,
                           but by the undead. I know this
                           must sound laughable, but please,
                           I do assure you this is real. I
                           have no explanation why human
                           cadavers are walking our streets.
                           I am studying the creatures, I
                           will let you know with further
                           information as soon as I complete
                           my theories.

                           run right past them and they won't
                           be able to touch us. We can get

                           already dead? If we do decide to
                           go out there and out run them,
                           they'll swarm around. There are
                           just too many of them. You heard.

                           where he tells us about a strange
                           museum causing disgust around the
                           public. Doctor Tyrell, welcome to
                           the show.
 
              The television displays a split screen between the anchor and
              Dr. Tyrell, a middle-aged black male.
 
                                    DR. TYRELL (V.O.)
                           Good evening to you over there,
                           Tim. I'm here at the Museum of
                           Technology and Labor in Mannheim,
                           Germany.
 
              The screen unsplits and shows Doctor Tyrell full. He stands in
              front of a sculpture of a HUMAN BEING. Other people walk
              around the museum.

                                                                     82.
 
 
                                    DR. TYRELL (V.O.)
                                (continuing)
                           The museum I am in right now is
                           not like any other museum in the
                           planet. This place houses actual
                           human cadavers modeling in motion.
                           This caused a stir of emotions
                           with the general public back in
                           2001, it was very controversial.
                           But, it has been getting good
                           reviews over the years because it
                           has helped viewers aware of what
                           the human body looks like from
                           inside. Behind me is a sculpture,
                           if you will, of an adult male
                           mounted on a dead horse.
 
              A DEAD MAN with his muscles and bones showing sits on a DEAD
              HORSE, also the same as the dead man.
 
                                    DR. TYRELL (V.O.)
                                (continuing)
                           In one hand he holds the right
                           hemisphere of his brain and the
                           other portion is attached to his
                           head. If you can see clearly, the
                           muscle and bones are in exact
                           proportion to a movement, in other
                           words flexing. All of the cadavers
                           here have donated their bodies to
                           science, that's why this is legal.
                           Many people believed it to be
                           morbid and unjust. But for me, it
                           is a work of art of the human
                           body. Now, over here is of a young
                           woman who passed away before she
                           gave birth.
 
              A DEAD WOMAN with a DEAD BABY in her stomach. She also is all
              muscle and bone.
 
                                    DR. TYRELL (V.O.)
                                (continuing)
                           Her baby died as well inside her
                           womb. This sculpture displays a
                           woman comfortably laying on her
                           side showing her infant son still
                           in her womb.

                                    DR. TYRELL (cont'd; V.O.)
                           You want to turn away but somehow
                           you just can't resist that
                           temptation to look. Follow me to
                           this one. This particular subject
                           is of a young male showing his
                           strength pulling a bow and arrow
                           ready to kill a buffalo.
 
              SCREAMS emerge from behind him. PEOPLE scatter away. Dr.
              Tyrell notices this and hesitates a little, then continues.
 
              The sculpture comes to life. It slowly moves and stares down
              at Doctor Tyrell. It aims its arrow at the doctor. It pulls
              slowly at the arrow. The muscles and bones react to the
              movement.
 
                                    DR. TYRELL (V.O.)
                                (continuing)
                           These cadavers were created using
                           a type of embalming material made
                           with a different type of wax.
                           When finished...
 
              The CAMERA OPERATOR nervously tilts the camera upwards to
              reveal more of the mounted cadaver stretching the arrow.
 
                                    DR. TYRELL (V.O.)
                                (continuing)
                           What are you doing? Tilt down!
 
              The cadaver releases the arrow, it pierces through the
              doctor's back protruding through his chest. Blood SQUIRTS out
              to the camera lens. The camera falls to the ground followed by
              the doctor.
 
              Other cadavers in the museum attack the crowd of people trying
              to escape. GUNFIRE echoes out in the museum. Security helps
              out some helpless people. Security is attacked as well.

              The channel scrambles and the lights flicker in the house.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           What the hell?
 
              Rigo looks outside.

                                                                     84.
 
 
              EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD - NIGHT
 
              The lamp posts and other lights flicker on and off.
 
              INT. RIGO'S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
 
              The television screen turns snowy.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Something wicked this way comes!
 
                                    SAM
                           This ain't good. This ain't good
                           at all.
 
              Porfirio changes the channel. All the channels are snowy. The
              lights flicker off, darkness surrounds them.
 
              The MOON provides light through the window.
 
              Rigo looks out of the window and checks out the black out.
              Clouds hover pass the full moon.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           What's wrong?
 
                                    RIGO
                           All the lights in town are out
                           too. I guess some dead fella
                           tripped the power lines.
 
              Many cadavers roam his lawn. More arrive.
 
                                    RIGO
                                (continuing)
                           There sure is a whole lot of dead
                           people out there.
 
              Porfirio gets up from the couch and heads over to the window.
              He sees many dead people limping closer to the house.
 
              One horrible-looking corpse BUMPS into the window surprising
              both of them, they jump back in fear. The window cracks.
 
              Puss, blood and other sorts of goo smudges on the window.
 
 
 
 

                                                                     85.

                                (continuing)
                           We got to do something, we can't
                           just stand here doing nothing.
                           We're sitting ducks here. It
                           cracked the window. If one of them
                           can manage do that, then more of
                           them can cause serious damage.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Do you have any flashlights or
                           candles?
 
                                    RIGO
                           Yeah, I'll go get them.
 
              Rigo leaves the sight of Porfirio and heads for his room.
              Porfirio stays and watches the action taking place outside.
              Rigo comes back after a few minutes with a lit candle and a
              flashlight.
 
                                    RIGO
                                (continuing)
                           Help me put the candles around the
                           house.
 
              Porfirio and Rigo place candle after candle around the inside
              of the house. The interior of the house is now a little lit,
              but it is still a little difficult to see around, like the
              walls and hallways.
 
              Tires SCREECH on the pavement outside with a few THUMPS
              splattering on the hood. Rigo, Sam and Porfirio take a look
              outside.
 
              EXT. RIGO'S HOUSE - NIGHT
 
              A large black truck idles off in front of the garage, next to
              the GTO. The truck knocked a few dead to the ground. Some
              squashed under the large tires.
 
              CHUY and CHENTE, two hispanic brothers in their 30's dressed
              in white suits from head to two, one with a white feather on
              his white hat, hop off the large truck and make a mad dash to
              the door.
 
 
 
 

                                                                     86.
 
 
              INT. RIGO'S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM
 
              Rigo unlocks the door. Chente and Chuy waltz in. Rigo lets
              them in and quickly closes the door and locks it.
 
                                    RIGO
                           It's about time you guys showed
                           up. We were starting to worry.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Well, you guys better worry about
                           them and not us.
 
                                    SAM
                           So, how bad is it out there?
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Really bad.
 
                                    RIGO
                           It's that dangerous?
 
                                    CHUY
                           Hell, they're everywhere, man! The
                           streets are crowded with them. We
                           must have crushed about 30 or 40
                           of them.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           We need to get out of here, we are
                           not in a safe place. We're in a
                           trap. We need to get everything we
                           need and hit the road Jack.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Before we leave we have to clear
                           the path. We need to fight back.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Got any weapons?
 
                                    RIGO
                           Who the hell are you talking too?
                           Of course I do. Follow me.
 
              Rigo takes them to his garage.
 
 
 

                                                                     87.
 
 
              INT. RIGO'S GARAGE - NIGHT
 
              Boxes, lockers, military posters, bandanas, etc. fill the
              garage.
 
              A small refrigerator rests next to the locker.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Okay, here it is. Choose your
                           choosing.
 
              Porfirio and the rest of the pack are all in awe.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           I didn't know you had all this
                           stuff.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Because I don't show it to anyone.
 
              Porfirio, Sam, Chuy and Chente rummage through the boxes and
              lockers, they find their weapons.
 
              Sam locates the beer in the refrigerator. He tosses beer to
              Chuy and Chente. Porfirio finds a heavy metallic vest in a
              locker.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           What is this?
 
                                    RIGO
                           That's called the ZX-20, it's a
                           very handy weapon when you're in
                           a drastic situation.
 
                                    SAM
                           Funny, doesn't look like a weapon.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Try it on, I'll show you how it
                           works.
 
              Rigo helps Porfirio with the vest.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           This is pretty heavy.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Yeah, there's a reason for that.

                                                                     88.
 
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           What's that?
 
                                    RIGO
                           It's bullet proof, and other proof.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Really? Okay, it's on, now what?
                           How does it work?
 
                                    RIGO
                           The secret compartment is on your
                           chest.
 
              Porfirio feels around the chest area.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           I can't feel anything.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Well, you do need the other
                           attachment.
 
              Rigo opens up the locker and takes out a device, a black
              leather glove with two wires running from the opening.
 
                                    RIGO
                                (continuing)
                           This is the little gadget that
                           makes the suit work.
 
              Chuy and Chente load ammo into their guns. Sam sits down on a
              box and drinks his beer. They look at Rigo and Porfirio.
 
                                    RIGO
                                (continuing)
                           When you put this little baby on,
                           you won't even know it's there.
 
              Porfirio slips on the leather glove on his right hand.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Okay, what do I do?
 
                                    RIGO
                           Touch your thumb and forefinger
                           like if you were going to snap
                           your fingers.
 

                                                                     89.
 
 
              Porfirio snaps his fingers. Nothing happens.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Nothing. You sure this works?
 
                                    RIGO
                           Positive! What the hell is wrong
                           with this damn thing? I don't
                           understand, when you touched your
                           fingers it should have made a
                           spark.
 
              Rigo notices the wires hanging from the glove.
 
                                    RIGO
                                (continuing)
                           Oh, I see. I forgot to connect it.
 
              Rigo grabs the two loose wires and pulls them through
              Porfirio's sleeve and connects it to two slots on the side of
              the vest.
 
                                    RIGO
                                (continuing)
                           That should do it.
 
              Porfirio touches his thumb and finger. A SPARK ignites from
              his fingers, a compartment on his chest opens up very quickly.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           So where's the secret in that?
 
                                    SAM
                           Is he supposed to get as close as
                           possible to someone's head and
                           knock them senseless?
 
                                    RIGO
                           Ha, ha! There's no gun in there,
                           that's the problem. You need to
                           put something in that catapult for
                           the damn thing to work. Chuy, toss
                           me that .357 will ya.
 
              Chuy tosses him the .357. Rigo places the gun on the catapult
              device and pushes it in, it latches tightly. He closes the
              chest compartment.
 
 

                                                                     90.
 
 
                                    RIGO
                                (continuing)
                           Try it again.
 
              Rigo steps aside, Porfirio snaps his fingers, the SPARK lights
              up and SWOOSH! The chest opens up and out comes the gun flying
              across the room.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           That thing has some power.
 
                                    RIGO
                           I don't remember it having so much
                           zing. You were supposed to catch
                           it!
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           I'll just try it again.
 
              Sam grabs the gun and tosses it to Porfirio.
 
                                    RIGO
                           You do that until you get it
                           right. Once you master that, you
                           can do almost anything.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Really, like what?
 
                                    RIGO
                           Shut up!
 
              A window SHATTERS in the living room. Everyone rushes over to
              the living room.
 
              Porfirio places the gun on the catapult, pushes it back and
              closes the chest compartment as he runs out the door.
 
              INT. RIGO'S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM
 
              They arrive to the sight of THREE CADAVERS on the floor making
              their way inside the house.
 
              Rigo takes his .45 and FIRES away at the three cadavers.
 
              The cadavers rise while bullets penetrate them, nothing
              happens.
 
 

                                                                     91.
 
 
              Dust, dried blood, and green slime BURSTS from the backs of
              cadavers as the bullets exit them. Some windows shatter to the
              floor from the gunfire.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Oh, shit! They're getting closer.
 
              They keep shooting. One cadaver falls to the ground, but
              slowly gets up.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           They ain't dying, man! What do we
                           do?
 
                                    RIGO
                           I'm getting my shotgun.
 
              Rigo hurries to the garage. Porfirio, Sam, Chente and Chuy
              keep unloading their guns at the approaching cadavers.
 
              Green slime, blood and some small body parts fall to the
              ground.
 
              Rigo comes back to the action in the living room carrying a
              large-sized shotgun, possibly constructed by himself.
 
              Rigo points at one of the approaching cadavers. He pulls the
              trigger, BLAM! A large part of the torso, the right side,
              falls to the ground.
 
              It twitches uncontrollably until it stops.
 
              The cadaver keeps approaching, hanging to one side reaching
              its only arm at Rigo.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Shoot it again!
 
              Rigo shoots his powerful weapon once more, the ammo tears off
              the mid torso, cutting it in half. The upper torso plummets to
              the ground kicking up dust from its body.
 
              The upper torso, with head and left arm, crawls at them.
              Residue stains the carpet as it crawls.
 
                                    CHUY
                                (continuing)
                           They ain't dying, man!
 

                                                                     92.
 
 
              An impatient Rigo unloads his last blast into the crawling
              cadaver. The head explodes into pieces. The body stops
              crawling.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Shoot them in the head!
 
              They shoot out the heads until the cadavers stop moving.
 
              Green mists float out from each of the cadavers and vanishes
              in the atmosphere.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Is this really happening?
 
                                    CHUY
                           We need to get out of here. We
                           can't stay here. Sooner or later,
                           those things are going to burst in
                           here crowding the whole house. We
                           will run out of ammo.
 
                                    SAM
                           He's right, let's move.
 
                                    RIGO
                           Alright. Get as much as we can and
                           then we'll head out. If we gather
                           other people, we can eliminate
                           these things.
 
              They scatter gathering weapons and stuff them in duffle bags.
              They collect magazines, ammo boxes and grenades.
 
              Rigo stands next to the door ready to open it.
 
                                    RIGO
                                (continuing)
                           Okay, let's clear some path.
 
              Chuy and Chente stand by the window with guns on hand.
              Porfirio opens the door slightly, the door CREEKS open.
              Porfirio takes a peek outside seeing nothing in his way. He
              nods at Chente and Chuy.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           I don't see anything outside. What
                           about you Chente, you see anything?
 

                                                                     93.
 
 
              Chente pulls the curtain and sees nothing, he slowly sticks
              his head out of a hole in the window. He holds his gun beside
              his cheek.
 
              Nothing at the door. A few dead people roam around the lawn
              and the parked vehicles.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           Chente, do you see anything?
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Just a few near the cars.
 
              And then the sound of GUNFIRE fills the quiet atmosphere of
              the room. Chuy's gun smokes from the barrel.
 
              Green goo drips from Chente's face.
 
                                    CHENTE
                                (continuing)
                           What the fuck man?!
 
              He wipes his face with his sleeve. Chuy points at Chente. He
              looks behind, a corpse with no eye and torn flesh stares at
              Chente. A hole etched on his skull bleeds. Green fog flows out
              of the hole.
 
              Chente points his gun at the cadaver but it falls back on the
              lawn.
 
                                    CHENTE
                                (continuing)
                           What the hell did you do that for?
 
                                    CHUY
                           Hey, it was either you or that.
                           You're lucky I chose right.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           You could have warned me.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Anything?
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Nothing beside the door.
 
 

                                                                     94.
 
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Okay, I'm heading out. Cover me
                           good. Chuy, I'm looking at you for
                           this one.
 
              Sam and Rigo hold the duffle bags. Porfirio holds two guns. He
              holds his breath and opens the door, it CREEKS open once again.
 
              EXT. RIGO'S HOUSE - NIGHT
 
              Porfirio steps out slowly. All light sources flicker on  and
              off then fade out slowly.
 
              GUNFIRE and YELLING are faintly heard around the neighborhood.
 
              Porfirio looks around the dimly lit neighborhood as he walks
              to his car, he pays more attention to the dead crowd near his
              car.
 
              Porfirio tightly holds on to his guns. He nears closer to the
              GTO while Sam and Rigo follow. Porfirio holds his gun up and
              fires one round at the head of the closest corpse. It falls to
              the ground. Green slime oozes out from its temple, the green
              fog floats upwards.
 
              Porfirio slowly and carefully opens the driver's side door. He
              looks inside of the car and in the back seat, nothing.
 
              Three HELICOPTERS fly overhead beaming their spot lights
              around the neighborhood.
 
              Porfirio hops in the car and starts the engine. Sam tosses one
              duffle bag in the back seat. The dead are attracted now, they
              start to make their way to Porfirio. He gets out of the car
              and gets away from the dead, they follow him.
 
              Sam and Rigo step inside the car. Sam in the driver's side.
 
              Chuy and Chente open fire, blasting away as many of the dead
              as they can. The path is cleared. Chente and Chuy step out and
              head to the truck. They hop on.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Take off Sam, I'll ride with these
                           guys.
 
              Porfirio hops in the back of the truck.
 
 

                                                                     95.
 
 
              Sam peels off heading out into the streets. He runs over a few
              dead people.
 
              Chuy starts the truck and takes off.
 
              EXT. MOVING TRUCK - STREETS - NIGHT
 
              Porfirio overhears a cry for help nearby.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Chuy, stop the truck. Stop the
                           truck!
 
              The truck comes to a fast halt. Porfirio hangs on.
 
                                    CHUY
                           What is it?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           I just heard someone yelling for
                           help.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           We don't have time for that, we
                           got to hit the road.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           What the hell is wrong with you?
                           Someone needs help.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Fuck!
 
              He puts the gear in neutral.
 
                                    WOMAN (O.S.)
                           Help! Help me, please.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Alright, be a hero.
 
              Porfirio hops off and heads for the young WOMAN.
 
              EXT. STREET
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Hey, lady, are you okay?
 
              The woman runs to Porfirio.

                                                                     96.
 
 
                                    WOMAN
                           Thank you. Thank you so much. My
                           boyfriend, he's been attacked.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           He's dead now. He's not coming
                           back.
 
                                    WOMAN
                           Please, you've got to help him.
 
              She stops approaching Porfirio and heads back to her boyfriend.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Ms. come back. Shit.
 
                                    WOMAN
                           Hurry.
 
              Three DEAD people tackle her down. They tear her apart.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           No!
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Come on hero or you're next on the
                           menu.
 
              Porfirio runs back to the truck. A DEAD JOGGER runs up behind
              him. More DEAD people follow behind.
 
              Chente points at Porfirio. He stops and spins around to see
              the disfigured jogger inching his way.

                                (continuing)
                           Run, you can outrun him, he's
                           dead. He can't catch up to you.
 
              Porfirio runs, the jogger runs a bit faster.
 
                                    CHENTE
                                (continuing)
                           Oh, shit! Porfirio, run faster.
                           He's gaining up to you!
 
              Porfirio turns around, the jogger gets closer. Porfirio cannot
              run any faster, he's tired. The jogger gets closer.
 

                                                                     97.
 
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Oh, shit! SHIT!
 
              Chuy eyes other dead people following behind and puts the
              truck in first gear and drives forward.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           What the hell are you doing? Stop!
                           STOP! Wait for me! Slow down! Slow
                           DOWN!!
 
              Porfirio trips and falls to the ground. He stands up and limps
              to the truck. The truck is further away from him, the jogger
              closer. Tears flow down his cheek. Fear overflows his tone of
              voice.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           Slow down that fucking truck! Slow
                           it down!! Wait up!!
 
              Chuy puts the truck in reverse and backs up to Porfirio. He
              gets closer allowing Porfirio to hop on. Chuy drives off.
 
              INT./EXT. BACK OF MOVING TRUCK - NIGHT
 
                                    CHENTE
                           I don't see him. Did you lose him?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Yeah, I think so.
 
              Porfirio SIGHS comfortably. He giggles to himself, then it
              turns into a laugh. Chente and Porfirio laugh together.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           Just go, take us anywhere.
 
              Porfirio rubs his ankle. Chente turns around from the
              passenger's side and looks around for the jogger. Porfirio
              chuckles.
 
              The dead jogger climbs up from the back of the moving truck
              and slowly makes his way onto the back. Porfirio's eyes open
              wide with fear.
 
 

                                                                     98.
 
 
              The jogger reaches out to him. Porfirio steps back and KNOCKS
              on the back window signaling Chente and Chuy. Chente turns
              around.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Yeah, what is it?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           That!
 
              He points at the jogger. Chente eyes the jogger.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Swerve the truck, Chuy! Swerve!
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Swerve?
 
              Porfirio hangs on. Chuy looks behind, he sees the jogger
              climbing up.
 
              He swerves the truck around trying to throw the jogger out of
              his balance. It does not help.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Use your gun.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           I left it in my car.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Why the hell did you do that?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Well shit, man!
 
              Chente quickly grabs a CROWBAR from under his seat. He slides
              open the back window and hands it to Porfirio.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Here, use this.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           This? How about a GUN?!!
 
              Porfirio forcefully takes the crowbar and swings it at the
              jogger. He gives a good right swing striking the jogger's hand.
 
              The HAND breaks off landing on the street.

                                                                     99.
 
 
              Porfirio swings again striking the jogger on the side of the
              head. The neck bone SNAPS loudly ripping open the flesh
              halfway. The head hangs to one side.
 
              Porfirio gives one last blow, confident he'll knock him out.
              Chuy swerves on a street.
 
              Porfirio and the jogger both tumble hard to the ground.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Hold on, Porfirio!
 
              The truck speeds away down the street.
 
              EXT. NEAR PARK - NIGHT
 
              Porfirio rises slowly to his feet. He grabs his head while
              the blood flows down his face.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Oh, no!
 
              The dead jogger stands up, his head bobbles around. He turns
              to Porfirio. The jogger grabs his head by the hair and lifts
              it. He SNAPS his head back into his neck but it's crooked.
 
              Porfirio drags his leg. The jogger closes in.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           What am I going to do? CHUY! Come
                           back!
 
              He sees the truck turn to another street. Porfirio holds his
              chest and looks at his leather glove.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                                (continuing)
                           The vest.
 
              Porfirio desperately snaps his fingers together, nothing
              happens. He finds a wire hanging from his short sleeve. He
              SNAPS the wire on the side of the vest.
 
              The dead jogger runs closer. Porfirio snaps his fingers again.
              The vest's chest compartment POPS open with force flinging the
              .357 magnum forward.
 
 

                                                                     100.
 
 
              SLOW MOTION
              Porfirio extends his arm forward and amazingly grabs ahold of
              the flying weapon correctly.
 
              He fires one shot at the approaching jogger. The bullet lands
              through its eye and exits through the back. The loose head
              breaks away from the neck and lands on the ground. The
              headless jogger falls to the ground motionless.
 
              Porfirio holds his pointing position for a moment. His eyes
              sparkle and his jaw quivers with amazement. He SIGHS relief
              while a sweat droplet rolls down his forehead.
 
              A CORPSE appears behind him about to lunge forward.
 
              A black truck SCREECHES on the pavement. The front bumper
              SLAMS the corpse across the street.
 
              Chente and Chuy step out. Porfirio stays motionless and slowly
              drops his arm.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Porfirio, are you all right?
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Yeah. Yeah.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Hey, I'm sorry we left you behind.
                           We didn't know you fell off. Are
                           you sure you're okay, man?
 
              Chuy helps him to his feet. He sees a stumbling CORPSE on top
              of a small mound of dirt getting closer.
 
              Chuy pulls out a small bottle of whisky from his inside
              pocket. He takes a long hit and hands it to Porfirio.
 
                                    CHUY
                                (continuing)
                           Here take some. It helps calm the
                           nerves.
 
              Porfirio takes a hit.
 
 
 
 
 

                                                                     101.
 
 
                                    CHUY
                                (continuing)
                           Here.
                                (passes it to Chente)
 
 
              Chente takes a gulp.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           That's some good shit.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Some old good shit.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           Do you have a cigarette?
 
              Chuy hands Chente a pack of cigarettes, he picks one out.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Shouldn't we get the hell out of
                           here?
 
                                    CHENTE
                           You got a lighter?
 
              Chuy searches for a lighter. He finds one and hands it to
              Chente.
 
                                    CHENTE
                                (continuing)
                           Thanks.
 
              Chente lights the cigarette. Porfirio eyes the stumbling dead
              MAN on the mound. Chente rips a cloth from his sleeve and
              damps the cloth with whisky.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Hey, hey, man! That's the only
                           whisky I got. It's hard to find
                           80 proof old whisky around this
                           part of town.
 
              Chente places the whisky-damped cloth inside the bottle. He
              uses his cigarette and lights the rag. The rag is engulfed
              with flames.
 
              He throws the flaming bottle at the stumbling corpse. The
              bottle strikes the corpse SWAMPING it with FIRE.

                                                                     102.
 
 
              The flaming corpse rolls down the mound and comes to a
              complete stop. It moves around looking for a way to stand up.
 
              A CROWD of DEAD PEOPLE make their way down from the other side
              of the mound stumbling over the burning corpse.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Oh, fuck me! There's more? Let's
                           get outta here quick!
 
              The MOANING gets louder as more dead PEOPLE approach from all
              sides.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Man, is the whole town infected?
 
              They hop on the truck and take off. This time Porfirio steps
              inside of the truck. The truck moves on.
 
              INT. INSIDE TRUCK - NIGHT
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Looks like we're losing. I don't
                           know if there's a fighting chance
                           anymore. We just don't have the
                           fire power to exterminate all
                           these dead fuckers.
 
              Chuy PEELS off from his position. He RAMS the crowd of dead on
              the streets.
 
              INT. MOVING TRUCK
 
              Some DEAD PEOPLE are CRUSHED underneath the large truck and
              some are thrown clean off giving them a clear path.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           We have to do something. We need
                           to round up as many living people
                           and get to safety.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Hey, isn't that your car?
 
              Porfirio's GTO IDLES next to the Russian Roulette Night Club.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Yeah? Stop! Rigo and Sam must be
                           in trouble.

                                                                     103.
 
 
              Chuy hurries and skids close to the GTO. They hop off and head
              into the building.
 
              SCREAMING and GUNFIRE LOOMS around the city. LOUDER GUNFIRE
              and SCREAMS echo from inside the building.
 
              Burning buildings and houses stretch the site of the streets.
 
              JETS fly over head. More HELICOPTERS appear in the night sky.
 
              Police vehicles, ambulances and fire trucks speed through the
              streets. Their SIRENS BLARE loudly.
 
              INT. RUSSIAN ROULETTE NIGHT CLUB - NIGHT
 
              Sam and Rigo kick and shoot around killing dead PEOPLE. Many
              WOMEN and MEN are attacked by the dead.
 
              A rotting corpse grabs Chuy's neck. Chuy flips him over and
              stomps on his face. He kicks him in the chest repeatedly.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Sam! Over here.
 
              Sam turns around.
 
                                    SAM
                           Get your asses out of here.
                           There's too many of them.
 
              A CROWD of DEAD quickly enter from the entrance blocking
              Chente, Chuy and Porfirio.
 
                                    CHENTE
                           We're in deep shit now.
 
              They make their way up some stairs. Sam and Rigo join them.
 
              THE STAIRS
 
                                    RIGO
                           This is where everything changes
                           men.
 
              They continue shooting. Some bullets land in the head and some
              in the body of the DEAD.
 
                                    SAM
                           We're running out of ammo.

                                                                     104.
 
 
              The crowd climb the stairs.
 
                                    SAM
                                (continuing)
                           We can't possibly kill them all.
 
                                                                 CUT TO:
 
              THE ENTRANCE
 
              MR. LENCHO and PANCHO step into the nightclub wearing FLAME
              THROWER backpacks. They are the owners of the club.
 
                                    MR. LENCHO
                           Burn in hell you fucking dead
                           motherfuckers!
 
              Mr. Lencho and Pancho fire away burning everyone close by.
              Furniture and walls burn up creating larger fire.
 
                                                                 CUT TO:
 
              THE STAIRS
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Hey, over here! Help us.
 
              Seven DEAD PEOPLE burst through some doors behind Rigo and
              Sam. Rigo turns around and shoots away.
 
                                    MR. LENCHO
                           Hold up, we're coming.
 
              Mr. Lencho hurries to the crowd of dead making their way up
              the stairs. Pancho follows. They burn the dead.
 
              Some fall to the ground and some continue walking up the
              stairs.
 
              The seven dead people attack, knocking Rigo and Sam backwards
              and pushing Porfirio, Chente and Chuy over the railing.
 
              They fall down on some tables. More dead people crowd around
              them. Mr. Lencho rushes over to help.
 
              A few dozen more corpses enter the building through the
              windows and entrances. Pancho fires away torching corpses.
              Some fall to the ground crawling around.
 

                                                                     105.
 
 
              A DEAD DANCER rises behind Pancho. He turns around and freezes
              with fear. He quickly pulls the flame thrower trigger but the
              fire discontinues.
 
                                    PANCHO
                           Oh, fuck me.
 
              The dead dancer lunges forward and attacks. Pancho SCREAMS in
              pain. A HORDE of DEAD join in to feast.
 
              Mr. Lencho pulls a few dead people off of the falling crew.
              Porfirio limps to one side, his ankle seriously broken.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Oh, GOD!
 
              Mr. Lencho and the rest are surrounded by the dead. Everyone
              holds their position pointing their weapons at any serious
              target. The dead gather closer and attack.
 
              EXT. RUSSIAN ROULETTE NIGHT CLUB'S ALLEY - NIGHT
 
              A lot of GUNFIRE and SCREAMS bellow out from the nightclub. A
              crowd of DEAD have gathered around the building and enter
              slowly while the FIRE BURSTS through the windows.
 
              EXT. BERMUDA TRIANGLE - MORNING
 
              A COAST GUARD boat closes in on the stranded cruise liner.
              Thick fog slowly evaporates.
 
              The cruise liner seems silent.
 
              INT. COAST GUARD BOAT - DECK
 
              Five COAST GUARDS stand near the railing looking at the cruise
              liner. The commander, HEATHER, 33, looks through her
              binoculars. The boat slowly stops near the cruise liner.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           This is it.
 
              ENRIQUE, 29, the second in command, steps out of the navigator
              room. Now there are six coast guards on the deck.
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           So, who's stepping on first?
 
 

                                                                     106.
 
 
              ACE and DEUCE, twins, both in their mid 20's do the rocks,
              paper, scissors technique. Ace wins.
 
                                    ACE
                           Looks like I go first.
 
              JENNIFER, 20, prepares her pack and rope. She stashes a .357
              magnum in it. She kisses it. CAROL, 32, drinks a cup of
              coffee. She looks at Jennifer.
 
              Everyone except Enrique head for a crane box, they step onto
              it all carrying flashlights and backpacks. Enrique maneuvers
              the crane up to the cruise liner. Ace steps out first then the
              rest follow onto the cruise liner.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - DECK
 
              Ace slips on some blood.
 
                                    ACE
                           What's this?
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Hello? Anyone there?
 
              Heather walks forward. Ace and the group follow. They end up
              in the navigating room.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - NAVIGATING ROOM
 
              They enter the broken door.
 
                                    JENNIFER
                           Something happened here.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Look alive. Anything can go wrong.
 
                                    CAROL
                           What do you think killed all these
                           people?
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Don't be surprised if there's
                           still someone on board ready to
                           attack again.
 
              Deuce locates the ham radio. He presses the button and flips
              some switches. STATIC blusters through the speaker.

                                                                     107.
 
 
              Ace locates the intercom.
 
                                    ACE
                           Hello, baby! This is the Big
                           Bopper speaking.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Stop it, Ace.
 
              Ace releases the button on the intercom.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - CORRIDOR DOOR ON DECK
 
              The door opens, Catherine, Roger and Guillermo step out. All
              bloody.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - NAVIGATING ROOM
 
              A MOAN penetrates the room. Deuce looks behind and sees Mrs.
              Yu crawling to him.
 
                                    DEUCE
                           We have a survivor. She's bleeding.
 
              Heather and Ace get closer.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Carol give me the first aid.
 
              Carol searches through her bag.
 
                                    HEATHER
                                (continuing)
                           Ma'am, this is the coast guard.
                           We've come to rescue you. Can you
                           tell us who else is on board?
 
              Mrs. Yu crawls a little further. She raises her head slowly.
              Her neck bone CRACKS many times until she stops moving her
              head. She stares at Heather.
 
              Deuce notices the large gash on her neck and the coagulated
              blood etched into her throat. Heather reaches out to her.
              Deuce quickly grabs Heather's arm.
 
                                    HEATHER
                                (continuing)
                           What are you doing?
 

                                                                     108.
 
 
                                    DEUCE
                           Look.
 
              Heather notices the wound on Mrs. Yu and her lifeless eyes.
              Heather steps back, so does Ace. Carol stops looking in her
              bag. Jennifer reaches in her bag and pulls out her gun. She
              looks around.
 
                                    JENNIFER
                           I don't like this.
 
              Mrs. Yu approaches Heather. Deuce grabs her shoulder.
 
                                    DEUCE
                           Ma'am, stop right there!
 
              Mrs. Yu turns her head, the bone CRACKS loud and SNAPS out of
              her neck.
 
                                    ACE
                           Oh, shit!
 
              Mrs. Yu bites down on Deuce's hand. He retracts his hand and
              holds it.
 
                                    DEUCE
                           Bitch!
 
              He kicks her face. She falls back and gets up again. A creepy
              vibrating MOAN escapes her mouth.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Are you okay, Deuce?
 
                                    DEUCE
                           Yeah.
 
              He slips off the blood-stained glove from his hand and looks
              at his bite wound.
 
                                    DEUCE
                                (continuing)
                           She bit me hard.
 
                                    CAROL
                           Are you bleeding?
 
              She takes out a bandage.
 

                                                                     109.
 
 
                                    DEUCE
                           It'll stop bleeding. It's just a
                           flesh wound, I'll live.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           I think this lady's infected.
                           She's not responsive. Did you see
                           her eyes?
 
              Mrs. Yu crawls to Heather again. Deuce puts his foot down on
              her back holding her down. Mrs. Yu struggles to move.
 
                                    JENNIFER
                           She's not infected with anything.
                           She's dead, look at her.
 
              Mrs. Yu bobs her head back and forth. Her bone poking out from
              her neck.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           She's right.
 
                                    ACE
                           How's that possible?
 
              Deuce slips the glove back onto his hand. Heather calls
              Enrique on her walkie-talkie.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Enrique, we're coming back down.
                           Get ready.
 
                                    ENRIQUE (V.O.)
                                (static)
                           Aye, aye, chief!
 
                                    KIM (O.S.)
                           Help!
 
                                    DEUCE
                           You guys hear that?
 
                                    JENNIFER
                           Yeah. It sounded like it came from
                           above.
 
              She steps out of the room.
 
 

                                                                     110.
 
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - DECK
 
              Jennifer sees Kim standing on top of the navigating room.
 
                                    JENNIFER
                           Hello? Are you all right?
 
                                    KIM
                           Are you alive?
 
              Heather steps out.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Are you safe? Can you get down?
 
                                    KIM
                           Are you dead?
 
              Heather looks at Jennifer and her gun. She shrugs it off.
              Jennifer puts it in her pants.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Yes, we're very much alive. Is
                           this your mother down here?
 
                                    KIM
                           She's not my mother anymore.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           We heard your Mayday call. We came
                           here to rescue you.
 
                                    KIM
                           I thought you were dead.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Can you climb down?
 
                                    KIM
                           I'm hungry.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           We got fresh food. Climb down
                           please. I can't talk to you like
                           this.
 
              Kim climbs down. She hugs Heather tightly.
 
 

                                                                     111.
 
 
                                    KIM
                           I thought I'd never get off of
                           this ship alive. Thank you.
 
              Heather hugs back and looks at Jennifer.
 
                                    JENNIFER
                           What happened here?
 
                                    KIM
                           Death.

                                (static)
                           Uh, I think you guys should hurry
                           back. Something really weird is
                           going on over here.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           What is it? Over!
 
                                    ENRIQUE (V.O.)
                                (stronger static)
                           You guys won't believe me, but a
                           ferryboat just arrived.
 
              Heather looks at Jennifer confused.
 
              INT. COAST GUARD BOAT - DECK
 
              Enrique sees a 50 foot rusted broken-down ferryboat floating
              by. A large FIGURE navigates it wearing a long black cloak
              with hood.  The ferryboat peers out of the dense fog and halts
              near the cruise liner. A lantern on a pole in front of the
              boat brightens its path.
 
              CHARON, the ferryboat man, turns to Enrique. Charon's
              deteriorated face frightens him. His white eyes stare up at
              Enrique.
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           Now!
 
                                    HEATHER (V.O.)
                                (static)
                           We'll be right down. What's going
                           on?
 
 

                                                                     112.
 
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           Just get your asses down here.
                           OVER and OUT!
 
              Enrique rushes over to the crane deck and turns it on.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - DECK
 
              Heather and Jennifer hurry to the railing of the cruise liner
              and look down. Kim joins in. The fog blurs their view.
 
                                    ACE (O.S.)
                           Hey guys, you got to take a look
                           at this.
 
              Heather and Jennifer walk back to the navigating room.
 
                                    KIM
                           We have to get off of this ship.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           We will. I need to know what's
                           going on first.
 
                                    KIM
                           We'll die out here.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - NAVIGATING ROOM
 
              Heather makes her way inside and sees no one in the room. She
              sees Mrs. Yu lying motionless on the floor.
 
                                    ACE (O.S.)
                           Down here.
 
              Heather walks over to the small opening on the floor. Jennifer
              and Heather descend it. Kim stays.
 
                                    KIM
                           Please, get out of there. You
                           don't know what's down there.
                           Please.
 
              She cries. Heather looks up from the hole. She decides to
              climb up.
 
                                    KIM
                                (continuing)
                           Thank you.

                                                                     113.
 
 
              Jennifer stays.
 
                                    ACE (O.S.)
                           Where are you going? We need to
                           look for more survivors.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           I'm staying with her. She needs
                           food. You guys have permission to
                           look around. Call back if you see
                           anything.
 
                                    ACE (O.S.)
                           Will do.
 
                                    KIM
                           They're going to die down there.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Come on, let's go.
 
              Heather and Kim head out of the room.
 
              INT. CRUISE LINER - DECK
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Enrique, we're coming aboard. Get
                           ready. Over.
 
              STATIC interrupts the receiver. Enrique runs through the fog
              heading for Heather.
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           We need to get the fuck out of
                           here, pronto!
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Why, what's wrong?
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           They're infesting this ship.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Who is?
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           Something, I don't know what.
                           That's why we need to get off of
                           this ship now.

                                                                     114.
 
 
                                    KIM
                           It's the dead.
 
              Enrique notices Kim.
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           Who's this?
 
              GUNFIRE explodes from the bottom of the ship.
 
                                    KIM
                           It's starting again.
 
              She cries.
 
                                    KIM
                                (continuing)
                           We're going to die out here.
 
              Catherine, Guillermo and Roger waltz behind Enrique.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Get back here.
 
              She pulls Enrique to her. The dead get closer. More GUNFIRE
              erupts below from a distance.
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           Who are these people?
 
              The dead get closer.
 
                                    KIM
                           They're dead. Can't you guys
                           understand that?
 
              Out comes Jennifer from a door. She's bloody. She fires a few
              more rounds inside the room she came out from. She runs to
              Heather as the dead lunge forward to attack. Three gunshots
              RING out. Catherine, Guillermo and Roger fall down to the
              ground. Their heads shot out.
 
                                    JENNIFER
                           We need to get out of here!
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           That's what I said.
 
 

                                                                     115.
 
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Where's the rest?
 
                                    JENNIFER
                           Dead!
 
              Tony appears from the fog, waving his arms.
 
                                    TONY
                           Help!
 
              Jennifer points her smoking gun at him.
 
                                    TONY
                                (continuing)
                           Wait! I'm not dead. Don't shoot!
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Put your gun down.
 
              Jennifer slowly puts it down.
 
                                    HEATHER
                                (continuing)
                           Who are you?
 
                                    TONY
                           I'm a tourist. Please, we need to
                           hurry out of here. It isn't safe.
                           There are more behind me.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           What is?
 
                                    TONY
                           I'll explain when we are in safer
                           grounds.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Everyone to the crane.
 
              They hurry back onto the crane and board it. Enrique controls
              it and down they go to the boat.
 
              INT. COAST GUARD BOAT
 
              Enrique quickly runs to the control deck and navigates the
              boat away from the cruise liner.
 

                                                                     116.
 
 
              EXT. BERMUDA TRIANGLE
 
              GREEN MISTS, float towards the ferryboat. Charon lifts his
              arms. The water bubbles and Pandora's box rises to the
              surface.
 
                                    TONY
                           My god, it is true.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Excuse me?
 
                                    TONY
                           The myth, it's all true.
 
              The coast guard boat leaves the scene.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Can you please tell me what went
                           on up there?
 
                                    TONY
                           Everybody died and came back.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           How? How is that possible?
 
                                    TONY
                           That box is cursed. Somehow it was
                           broken into and released all of
                           the plagues. They entered the
                           dead. That's why they're coming
                           back to life. Pretty soon the
                           whole planet will be infested
                           unless we stop it.
 
                                    JENNIFER
                           How do we do that?
 
                                    TONY
                           We need to shut that box and read
                           the writing on it.
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Will that stop the dead from
                           coming back to life.
 
                                    TONY
                           I'm not really sure. Yes.

                                                                     117.
 
 
                                    HEATHER
                           Well, what do we need to do?
 
                                    TONY
                           Get the box.
 
                                    ENRIQUE
                           And how exactly are we gonna do
                           that? Look at that thing?
 
                                    TONY
                           Call the Navy or the Marines,
                           someone before it's too late.
 
              EXT. STREETS - MORNING
 
              Bloody puddles of water ripple as the morning air brushes it.
              A large number of cars are left in rubble as some of the fire
              slowly dies down.
 
              Streets are left in shambles, people and animals lay on the
              ground dead. The sun shines beautifully illuminating a nice
              morning color in the sky.
 
              More JETS fly over head, releaseing some missles that land on
              the ground. Explosions echo in the distance.
 
              SIRENS WHIRL in the distance.
 
              EXT. ELECTRONIC'S BUILDING - MORNING
 
              Porfirio steps out of the building. His leg seriously injured,
              blood and soot covers his body and ripped clothes. He holds
              his .357.
 
              He COUGHS and leans on the wall holding his face. He cries.
 
                                    PORFIRIO
                           Help me!
 
              He falls to the ground hard.
 
              He twitches after a while then gets up. He limps his way onto
              the street, MOANING.
 
              Police and ambulance sirens WHIRL close by. A SQUAD CAR rushes
              by quickly almost striking him. Chuy's black truck with TWO
              PEOPLE in the back soon follows. The truck SKIDS on the
              pavement and SCREECHES to a halt.

                                                                     118.
 
 
              Chuy, Chente, Rigo, Sam and Mr. Lencho step out of the truck
              all carrying weapons.
 
                                    CHUY
                           Oh, no! Not you too.
 
              Dead Porfirio approaches Chuy.
 
                                    CHUY
                                (continuing)
                           You were a good friend, Porfirio.
                           Chente.
 
              Chente grabs a machete from under the driver's seat and tosses
              it to Chuy. He grabs it.
 
                                    CHUY
                                (continuing)
                           May the Lord take your soul my
                           friend.
 
              Chuy slashes Porfirio's head with the machete. The top of
              Porfirio's head pops open. He falls to the ground.
 
              Sam walks up to Porfirio. He takes out a coin from his pocket.
              He places it under Porfirio's tongue.
 
              No mist floats away from him.
 
                                    SAM
                           Rest in peace!
 
                                    RIGO
                           Let's put an end to this hell.
 
              All hop on the truck. Chuy turns the radio on.
 
                                    ANNOUNCER (V.O.)
                           Just this morning, the Florida
                           coast guard discovered an ancient
                           wooden box floating in the water
                           in the Bermuda Triangle. The
                           wooden box was sent to a science
                           laboratory where scientists have
                           examined it and believe that the
                           box contained a substance that
                           regenerates dead brain cells. The
                           President was called in and had
                           this to say.

                                                                     119.
 
 
                                    PRESIDENT (V.O.)
                           Earlier this morning it was
                           brought to my attention that a
                           group of scientists and historians
                           have decoded an ancient writing
                           written on an abandoned box found
                           in the Bermuda Triangle. The
                           writing explains the solution to
                           preventing the dead from coming
                           back to life. With this writing
                           decoded, the dead will stop rising
                           and the only thing to do now is to
                           kill off the remaining dead.
 
                                    ANNOUNCER (V.O.)
                           President Washington calls it
                           Operation DEADHUNT. With the words
                           spoken from the box, the dead...
 
                                    SAM
                           This all sounds unbelievable. But
                           if what they said was true, then
                           let's kill us some.
 
              Chuy speeds away. The truck disappears in the distance.
 
              Beyond their path, a large crowd of DEAD PEOPLE creeping
              through the streets.
 
              SURVIVORS open fire at the dead.
 
              Military HELICOPTERS appear in the skies destroying more DEAD
              WALKERS with their machine guns and grenades.
 
              All of downtown is now in shambles. Buildings burn down,
              vehicles crash, some people run away and police vehicles, fire
              trucks and ambulances roam the streets.
 
              Groups of SOLDIERS, SWAT and RIOT CONTROL POLICE storm the
              streets controlling their surroundings.
 
              The sun rises.
 
                                                            FADE TO BLACK.
 
                                 THE END
