- Charles.

- Sorry. Dr. Swartz.

It's OK. Charles. It's OK.

It takes a couple of days

to get used to the smell.

It's all right.

- You all right?

- Yeah.

I'll get the mop.

Charles. After you get through this.

Take the night off. Get some sleep.

I'll see you in the morning.

Thank you. Doctor.

Not another one.

Tim. You can't keep leaving DVDs

in the locker like this all day. Man.

It's hot as f*** out here. Dude.

They'll melt.


Yeah. Yeah. I hear ya.

Hey. Simone.


Yeah. Laugh it up. B*tch. Yeah!

- What a dweeb.

- So gross.

They had better not go to this party tonight.

Their best friend is dating Jackie.

So I'm sure they'll be there.

God. Do not remind me.

Oh! Jesus Christ!

I'm sorry.

Did I hurt you ladies?

What's your problem. Lance?

My problem is you know you're not

supposed to be talking to my girl.

We'll talk to whoever we goddamn please.

They'll talk to whoever they please. Guys.

That's what they're gonna do.

Just watch it.

Let's go.

God. I'd like to f*** up that kid's day.

I'd like to drive a chainsaw

right through his face.

Where the hell's Chris?

No. Wait. Wait. Jackie. We have to

talk about this party tonight.

You're trying to get off going. Aren't you?

It's just that it's not my thing.

Plus. Your friends hate me.

Whatever. I know it's not your thing.

What are you doing for the rest of the day?

Well. There's an early show

at the Backward tonight.

- The nasty bar downtown?

- It's not nasty.

Grungy maybe. But it's not nasty.

- Whatever. Who's playing?

- Dance Floor Tragedy.

What? What now?

- They suck.

- They do not.

They do suck.

- Hooker. Let's go back to class.

- Did you just call me "hooker"?

Good afternoon. Good to see everybody

back from the weekend.

Let's take out our homework.

If you would.

While we're turning to page

As we continue our study

under the problem solving we've

been looking at. It's important to see... we note

in our problem solving...

- Yo. Matty.

- You guys have to check this out.

Everybody move!

Get out of the way!


You guys wanna

hit this show tonight or what?

- Uh. I will if you drive.

- I don't have the money for gas.

- I'll swing by and pick you fools up.

- What time?

Five. We should leave early

so we don't have f***ing traffic.

- I'll be over at Scott's house.

- Hey.

That sh*t's f***ing gross. Man.

Oh. Yeah.

Come on. Man. Let's go.

What's your f***ing deal?

That's so disgusting. You're totally

ruining your reputation right now.

I gotta go.

Have fun tonight. Bye.

You're such a b*tch.


God. I hate that f***ing kid.


Mom. You up there?


Jesus... Christ.

Mom. What the f***? Mom?

Holy sh*t! Mom!

No. Mom. It's me! Stop!


Stop this! Mom!

Help me. God!

Oh. God! Mom. No!

Why is it again that we're driving

all the way out to this stupid party?

This is where everything was going down.

Everybody's gonna be here.

Come on. Baby. It's gonna be

the social event of the year.

Plus. We got states coming up.

I gotta get my drink on.

- This sucks.

- I know. He's such a player.

I gotta pee.

Where is this place?


- What are you doing home so early?

- Jesus. They let us out early.


What's the deal with the old man

leaving his mower on?

He probably fell asleep on the toilet again.

We're gonna head downtown.

Check out this band for a couple of hours.

- Is it cool if I take the car?

- Yeah. Just be home by midnight.

More dead bodies to drain?

Get outta here.

- All right. Later.

- Bye.

Forget something?

Seriously. Man. What the hell

do you think happened with Brad?

I don't know.

The kid has always been f***ing weird.

It doesn't surprise me

that he went psycho on Latt.

Yeah. But you heard Professor Latt.

He said Brad bit him.

Maybe he was...


Don't spread crackers in my bed. Man.

Come on.


At least there's a bunch of people

here already.

Did you guys expect anything less

from this town?

I mean. A bunch of drunks.

And you. What's up with you

dating this grungy-ass stoner?

He's not a stoner. OK?

- We haven't been down here in weeks.

- Because this a**hole has to have a job.

I work at the video store where y'all get

your free videos. DVDs. A**holes.

That's way better than working for my dad.

I have to drain dead corpses all day.

Give me this.

Here comes my man.

- Hey. Babe.

- Ladies. Ladies. How are you?


- Been waiting for this beer.

- Let's go celebrate.

- All right.

- Excuse me. Ladies.

See you girls later.

Are we there?

How long we been driving?

Scott. Hey.

How long we been driving?

- About 45 minutes.

- Why?

Something's not right.

What are you talking about. Man?

I've been driving for 45 minutes and I

haven't seen a car in either direction.

- So?

- So look at the time.

It's rush hour.

What the f*** is going on. Man?

I don't know.

Let's just get to the bar.

You're just what I thought. Lady.

Are you serious?

- How you doing?

- I'm fine.

No. Wait.

Where are you?

- Your breath too?

- Yeah. I think I got...

What do you think?

I think it's a bad idea. Man.

There's gotta be people in there.

The city just doesn't shut down.

F*** it.

What the hell is that noise?


Oh. Sh*t!

What the f*** was that?

What the f*** was that?

Calm down!

Just f***ing calm down. Calm down.

- Did you see what was out there?

- I f***ing saw what was out there!

- Who the f*** are you?

- Whoa. Whoa!

I said who the f*** are you?

We're nobody. Look. We just came from

Downey. We're just here to see the show.

Can you tell us what the hell is going on?

I don't know.

It all happened so fast.

The band started playing. And then...

then it happened.

What happened?

They were eaten alive.

Ripped apart like they were nothing.

Who... Who got eaten?


Are you telling me that those people

out there are f***ing zombies?

I'm saying that whatever they are.

They ain't human.

Why we always gotta match?

- I don't know. I'm sorry.

- Damn cell phones.

What? Is your boyfriend not answering?

- No. It hasn't been working all day.

- Right.

If he even went to that show.

You always drink too much.

It's so funny.

You can't get a hold of your boyfriend.

I said the phone wasn't working.

- That's what they all say. Honey.

- Whatever. F*** off.

What are we gonna do?

I don't know.

So where did they go?

To get their next meal.


Meanwhile. We sit here

and wait for them to come back?

Do you ever just shut up?

It's all right.

He's locked up.

Yeah. Right.

Yeah. Well. When I have it in two months.

Oh. Hey. Matty.

How you doin'?

Are you OK?

Are you all right?

Oh. My God! My baby!

I think you've

had enough to eat for one day.

You gotta shoot 'em in the head.

We have to make it back to the car.

- It's our only chance of making it out.

- We never should have gotten out of it.

- I'm not going back out there.

- Fine. You can sit here and be dinner.

But not me.

If it hasn't already reached Downey.
