The demons in your head just crawled out of their graves.
The undead have risen from their graves. Robin, Carla and Dylan must try and escape the city and make their way to a secluded nature reserve. But Robin is haunted by dreams of her younger brother who died by her own hand a year ago. Will they make it to safety? Will Robin be able to overcome her guilt? Who will survive the rising of the dead?
They all sat together on the couch in front of the television. Dylan sat in the middle with Carla and Robin on either side of him. The tired anchorman continued his vigil, narrating the fall of civilization.
“Despite all that is happening, we are saddened to report that gangs of living people have been seen looting houses and shops. Most are stealing tinned foods and bottled water but many have been seen carrying expensive computers and televisions.”
The screen changed and showed footage of two young men struggling out through a smashed
store window. They were carrying a large flat-screen TV between them. They did not escape with their prize, however, because as they cleared the debris outside the shop a pair of the walking corpses attacked them. One of the men dropped his end of the TV screen and sprinted away from the attackers, but his partner faced up to the corpses in a moment of bravado. He took a step backwards and looked into the lifeless eyes pouched in sockets of bone and parchment flesh. He pulled a pistol out of his belt and aimed at the closer of the two attackers. It was about ten feet from him when he squeezed the trigger and delivered a slug of lead to the beast's unsuspecting brow. It fell in a spray of pus and gore and bone fragments and the young man aimed his weapon at the second attacker. It was much closer now. It reached out its arm, clothed in decaying rags, and tried to grab him. The young man's mouth opened in a scream
of rage and terror and he shot the creature. Its head exploded and curdled brain matter rained onto its slumped form. The young man tucked his gun back into his pants and set off after his fleeing companion.
