EXT: A GAS STATION

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

A car pulls into a gas station and stops at the last pump. The driver turns off the radio and then the car. He gets out and starts walking casually to the gas station attendant while whistling Santana’s “Spooky”. He puts $10 on his station and walks to the other side of his car to pump gas. He starts putting gas into his car when he hears alarmed voices to his left. He looks over. There, he sees a person collapsed on the ground, dead, and another person running over to help. He takes a second to look at what is going on and goes back to pumping. All of a sudden he gets a vision of the collapsed man as an attacking zombie. His eyes widen in terror as he stops the gas short of what was paid. Without panicking he quickly strolls around to the other side of the car and smoothly pulls away.

Peter, the driver from previous, runs into the room and slams the door. Chris, one of Peter’s roommates has been bitten and his other roommates want to get him to a hospital.

BOBBY:

Thank God, Peter we've been trying to call you. Chris was bitten by a mugger on York Road.

PETER:

When did it happen?

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

CHRIS:

WHO THE FUCK CARES WHEN IT HAPPENED! My arm is bleeding like a motherfucker and I need to go to the hospital now! Give Bob the keys so he can drive.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

You guys aren’t taking him anywhere.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO:

Peter we’ve got no time for fucking around, he needs a doctor now!

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

I just saw three people eat someone’s face. I barely got back in here alive; so let me tell you again, no one is going out there, and you (Peter points at Chris) you need to go into the basement.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010 3 versions.

CHRIS:

Bullshit, I’m not going down there. Give me the damn keys I’ll drive myself.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Peter runs up to his room, his roommates argue amongst themselves as they hear Peter rummaging around his room for something.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

CHRIS: (CONT'D)

He’s fucking crazy man. Bobby, when Peter comes back downstairs you’re gonna push him over and then Gino will take the keys from his pocket.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Peter comes downstairs while loading a shotgun. His roommates stand in shock as he points the gun at Chris’s face.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

Get in the basement. Now.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

CHRIS:

You won’t shoot me.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO:

Peter what the fuck are you doing, are you crazy. Where the fuck did you get that thing?

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

You’re right Chris. I won’t shoot you. I’ll just wait for you to die and become a zombie, THEN I’ll shoot you.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Everyone pauses for a moment to realize what Peter is saying.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

BOBBY:

Chris, I think you should go into the basement.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

CHRIS:

You’re agreeing with this clown.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

BOBBY:

No, I’m not. But if Peter thinks you’re a zombie then you’ll be dead soon, and if you aren’t dead in an hour then you can come back upstairs and kick the shit out of Peter.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Chris begrudgingly heads into the basement, the whole time swearing at his roommates. Peter slams the door behind him and starts to board it up.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO:

Peter, take a deep breath man, you’re acting a little crazy. Now I’m gonna go down there and try to calm him down so that when he come back up he won’t kill you.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

If you go down into that basement, you aren’t coming out.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO:

Yeah, we’ll see.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Gino turns his back and heads down too. Peter slams the door again and turns to Bobby. They talk as Peter starts to board up the door.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

Do you want to kill yourself too or are you gonna help me board up this door.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

BOBBY:

Peter, what the fuck is going on!?

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

You know how in the movies, whenever the zombie apocalypse occurs no one is ready for it, no one is prepared, we’ll I’ve been prepared for the past two and a half years. Every situation I am in, wherever I go, I take ten seconds and think to myself, “What are you gonna do if it goes down right now.”

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

BOBBY:

The zombie apocalypse.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

Yeah.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

BOBBY:

HAVE YOU LOST YOR FUCKING MIND!? Peter there is no zombie apocalypse. Now I’m going downstairs to try and help Gino calm Chris down.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Peter steps in front of the door to stop Bobby.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

I saw three guys eat a women’s face like a fucking burrito. People are getting attacked outside and they aren't muggings. Now, what we need to do is board up this basement and then make barriers over the doors and windows.

BOBBY:

I can’t believe this.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

Turn on the T.V. I'm sure it's all over the news

Bobby turns on the television to a blank screen as Peter continues to hammer. None of the channels work.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

BOBBY:

I have to go find my brother.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

Bobby, NO! You can’t go out there.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER: (CONT'D)

You’re brother is dead. Everyone out there is dead.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

BOBBY:

You don’t know that.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

Yes I do. Anyone who is out there with those things is dead. We are inside, we are safe, but we have to secure the front door and the back door so help me with these boards.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

BOBBY:

What about Chris and Gino? They can help us.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

No. You have to look at them as dead. Chris was bitten so he’s gonna change, and Gino is down there exposed. If we let him out we’re all fucked.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO:

Guys let me out. Chris is dead.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Bobby starts for the basement door but Peter stops him and shakes his head.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO: (CONT'D)

Did you here me Peter? Chris died. His arm was cut so bad that he bled to death. We have to call an ambulance.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Peter and Bobby take a few steps back from the door. Bobby looks at Peter while talking.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

BOBBY:

Are you sure he’s dead?

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO:

No, he’s jumping around having a great time. Of course I’m fucking sure. He’s starting to turn pale and…

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO: (CONT'D)

GET ME THE FUCK OUT OF HERE! He just sat up and he’s starting to come this way. Please, Please let me out.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Gino keeps banging on the door as Peter gets closer.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

Alright Gino, I’m gonna let you out but we have to make sure you aren’t infected. Look through the keyhole so I can see your eyes.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO:

Fine, fine, just let me out.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER:

Is your eye at the keyhole? I can’t see it.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

GINO:

YES! It’s at the fucking keyhole, I’m okay now let me the fuck out of here.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Peter puts the barrel of the gun up to the keyhole and shoots. There is a loud thud as Gino’s cries go silent. Bobby looks at his friend, horrified.

Peter starts collecting more debris to barricade the doors as Bobby stands in shock. All of a sudden there is more pounding at the door with growling sounds getting louder.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER: (CONT'D)

That is probably Chris. Okay here is what we are going to do. I am gonna shoot through the door, knocking the zombie backwards a few steps. You open the door as fast as you can and I’ll shoot what is left of it in the head.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Bobby is still in shock from what he saw just a few seconds ago.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER: (CONT'D)

Bobby. BOBBY! You have to stay focused. Chris is no longer your roommate, he is no longer our friend. What Chris is, is a 190 pound brainless, heartless killing machine that has one thing on his mind, your innards, outwards. So you need to help me out here okay buddy.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Bobby shakes his head yes and they pry off the board that Peter nailed up earlier. They get into position.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

PETER: (CONT'D)

On the count of three. One. Two. THREE.

pddobrowski - on 02/01/2010

Peter shoots the door at torso height and they hear another large thud and Bobby flings open the door. There, inside, is Chris, pale grey, with blood running from his mouth. Gino’s body is limp next to him. Chris’s torso is bloodied from the gunshot. Peter steps in the doorway, points the gun at Chris’ head and pulls the trigger.
