Synopsis: SPOILER: Eric and his Yankee teenage mates travel South by motorbike to a swampy backwater town in Louisiana, where Sean's father Ray lived, the local tow truck driver, who abandoned the then baby-boy and his mother. Ray recently died, while trying to rescue a voodoo witch and at her urging her trunk, which got opened and released the poisonous serpents possessed by the souls of truly evil sinners she trapped in them. Ray was bitten and possessed as the car sunk, and shortly after it's dragged out rises as an 'undead' zombie, who murders without provocation and is immune to lethal weapons. He soon finds the teens' trace and proves his indiscriminately evil blood-thirst by charging his only offspring equally lethally. However they were warned by Eden's friend Cece, the witch's granddaughter, who explained the situation in her home and assures them when the zombie attacks it's safe thanks to a 'blessed' spell preventing evil from entering; alas the chain- and crowbar-waving undead finds

- It's OK, kid.

Please, just stay...


Ray! No!

Ray! Ray!

- No!

- Eric, no!


Oh, my God.

Get me up to speed.

What's going on?

Junior and the man got him out.

But they can't do much

about the car until the tide drops.


Something got a hold of him good

down there.

Messed him up real bad.

Damn swamp's full of snakes.

Check this out.

They retrieved it from the car.

What is that?

Some kind of Veve.

Old-time Creole.

My granddaddy

got stories about that woman.

Keep you up nights.

Look here. I want this bridge secured

and this road cleared.

Hold on, now.

My day off started two hours ago.

- How am I supposed to tow a tow truck?

- Goddammit, boy, hop to it.


It was an accident, Eric.

They're both dead.

I should have gone in.

I should have tried to save him.

So what?

That you could have drowned too?

I should have done something.


- Was there a suitcase?

- I'm sorry, child?

Was there a suitcase in the car?

Yeah, there was.

We pulled it out. It was empty.

Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

Cece, are you OK?

- What happened?

- It was an accident.

What happened to Ray?

They said he was in the car.

The car went in the water.

He drowned.

Is that true?

Either that or the swamp snakes got him.

We don't know for sure.

Oh, my God.

I need to go to my grandma's house.

- Take me to my grandma's house.

- You don't want to be there alone.

Please, please. My dad, he's in Biloxi.

He'll be there till Sunday.

Can you please just take me

to my grandmother's house?

All right. I'll take you.


I'm telling you.

I don't know, some damn swamp snakes

chewed his ass up.

I swear to Jesus. It's a mess.

I ain't seen nothing like this

since old man Hardy died in that mill fire.

Hold on a second.

Sorry about that.

He had a death rattle.
