Dead and Walking by Sean Elwood - Horror - How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television? When is the last time any of us really worked to get something that we wanted? How long has it been since any of us really needed something that we wanted? The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled, no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living. - doc, format

Yes this is another zombie script I wrote. What can I say? I like zombies and their movies.

Just think of this one as a Resident Evil type...but I kinda wasn't headin' that way...

I absolutely loved this script!!  If I had the financing, I would make this in a heartbeat!  The only thing is that this would HAVE to have a big budget with the effects and all.
I loved the scene with Andrew and Rachel on the lake. For some reason, that scene really stuck in my mind the most. I could just picture it!
Great job man!!
You have any more zombie scripts? let me know!

Thanks, moviekid21. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

For the lake scene, I figured I could try and get nature into the script to slow them down and make it more dangerous to travel and survive.

Glad you liked it.

I read your script and you do the ol' zombie formula well. Not to sound like a jerk though, but I felt reading your script was like watching parts of every single zombie flick made in the past 40 years. The snow was a great edge, but it felt more like dawn of the dead with snow.
And I know not even the most hardcore fans take zombie flicks that "seriously" (though I personally love them) But it's not that hard to create EMPATY for them. I mean how can people expect to when the characters talk like this.
WHITNEY
Havenít you even noticed that whenever you talk about yourself, nobody seems to listen?

ANDREW
Havenít you ever noticed that whenever you talk, somewhere in the world a baby dies?

WHITNEY
Oh nice comeback, Mr. Iím-so-funny-and-strong-and-has-a-pretty-girlfriend-to-smooch-all-overóó

Your description tries to show us that our world as we know it can be taken from us. But I don't know how many young adults/teenagers speak like that. It felt more like the people were struggling with plain ol' survival as opposed to dealing with no tv and modern conveniences.

May Contain Spoilers

I am a big Zombie movie fan and I love the Resident Evil Games and books but I don't really have a taste for the movies. I loved reading your script. The first part was lovely and you set the scene of a nice peaceful place very well. You describe things very well throughout the script. I also like the whole split storyline at the start instead of getting halfway through Christines storyline and then adding other characters in who's storys are never seen. The Frozen lake scene I feel was one of the best if not the best part of the script. It was done really well and I could feel myself getting caught up in the script   On page 7 I love the first bit of Zombie action in the Ambulance, I actually wrote a Zombie TV Series based on the Resident Evil Outbreak and wrote a scene very similar to this but in a hospital. On Page 12 - I like the Animals running away from the evil like they have another sense but this has been done quite a lot but still effective. Another thing I feel is that Racheal just forgets about Andrew to quick, you make it seem like she is shocked to remember that she left them behind which wasn't that long ago, I don't know if you meant this to make the character seem a little more selfish but just though I'd point that out. Jumping now tot he ending awww Unlike the person above me I did not feel like I was watching a Dawn of the dead with snow... lol the whole thing did not take place in a shopping mall and I felt some of your ideas were original and the frozen lake thing was just great. Nothing else to really comment on. Loved the script but like someone else said it would need to be a high budget film to be good.

tony tuff nutz:

Since there are over hundreds (maybe even thousands) of zombie movies out there, it's beginning to get harder at thinking of original ideas. But there are still more ideas out there waiting to be found (like flying zombies for example, but the script would have to be written by someone really high). But I guess it would be cool to see a movie that has taken a bit from every zombie movie and put them all together and see what comes out...

...or not.

And that line I have been thinking about changing. I guess nobody really does expect somebody to say that, especially from a goth type person. But I'm glad you enjoyed my script, and as I have said before, I tried adding in nature to slow the victims down and give it a little more tension.

Cirrus:

You know what is hard about being a zombie fan? You can never find too many other zombie fans out there.

But thanks for the feedback for my script. I think this is one of my best works out of the scripts I have written. Haha and everyone seems to get pulled in by the lake scene which I also thought was a great scene. And I added in the "animals running away" after reading the "Zombie Survival Guide" (Oh yes, I am that obsessed) and I was like "What a good way to tell when there are zombies around" but unfortunately, our characters never figure that out.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!
Sean

Yeah it's a pretty good book so far. I got it on my birthday (November 2nd) and I'm only half way through it since school has basically taken over my life (no joke). But I'm really starting to enjoy it and if there happens to be a slight outbreak of zombies caused by radiation carried by a space probe from Venus, an evil corporation that created viral weaponry that went wrong, voodoo gone bad, a virus that only infects the recently diceased, or any of the other ideas that have been used in zombie movies, this book is going to save my life (and plenty others if they've ever read this book).

If you read this, and haven't read "The Zombie Survival Guide" by Max Brooks, READ IT!
