Another zombie script...Not one that I enjoyed too much. There were mistakes that kept me from enjoying it. Unless this is like Return of the Living Dead where it doesn't matter how decomposed the zombie is, it's still gonna rise, I don't think their mom would be able to rise. She's probably close to the final stage of decomposition by now. I actually don't know how long it takes for the human body to decompose, but I think 3 years is enough. The line "I guess they did, Dad" on page 7 doesn't make any sense. The helicopter appears out of nowhere, which ruined it. 10 minutes pass by and the army is already on it? Did they cause the dead to rise? Did they drop the bomb on just the house which possibly destroyed the entire city?

But, I just read you had one day to write this, so I guess that's a good excuse But I would like to see this one rewritten.

Sean, if you read that line in context it does make sense. Probably could be phrased better but he's responding to his brother saying ' They look like Zombies' ... 'I guess they did, Dad' is him agreeing with his brother.

The community that is being invaded here is just the house. The city is also under attack, I just wanted to concentrate on this one family to keep it simple. As far as the technicalities of the zombies, I kind of just went with my own ideas. The dead bodies regenerate due to this disease are whatever that is polluting the earth.

Totally agree with you that it could use a rewrite and I might do if I find the time.

Pia, glad you liked it. Would be a nice shock ending your idea...I'm 26 by the way

Thanks for taking a look both of you.
