Out of the blue, the patients turn into zombies and Jordan flees with the Hit Point car, leaving Chase behind. He follows Crystal chased by zombies and she stumbles upon Maggie, a woman in shock that has just lost her daughter. They seek shelter in a loan store while Jordan arrives in the border but is sent to quarantine. While the military under the command of General Lyons want to bomb the city since Zombrex is ineffective, Chase, Crystal and Maggie fight to reach the border.

Sometimes I have bad dreams About zombies,

My dad says the nice people at Phenotrans...

made a drug called Zombrex,

If someone is bitten by a zombie,

They can take Zombrex eleven to day,

Then They stay in person,

Instead of becoming a scary monster,


stay human,

Oh sh*t,

No, no!

Oh yes,

East Mission, Oregon, remains under

evacuation orders at this hour,

Just moments ago,

the President authorized FEZA

to declare East Mission...

a quarantine zone.

At 10:
31 this morning East Mission police...

discovered a number a suspected

of zombie attacks,

in separate, but contiguous locations.

Per standard operating procedure...

a containment wall was erected within 12 hours...

a new FEZA record,

This is the third zombie outbreak in

the United States in the last 10 years,

Most residents have evacuated the city...

as well as most civil authorities.

Unfortunately, looting has been reported...

inside the quarantine zone.

At least one biker gang is operating

in East Mission.

They are thought to be heavily armed

and extremely dangerous.

FEZA's directing all residents

who don't own cars...

to the East Mission Mega Dome...

... where they will be evacuated by bus.

Many of them are survivors of past outbreaks...

... and carry the zombie virus.

I'm gonna tell it like it is...

No, I don't want those people

getting out of there.

I don't want to be infected.

We apologize for the delay.

All individuals requiring Zombrex,

please line at least up one hour before

your scheduled injection.

Evacuation buses are expected shortly.

Again, we apologize for the delay

and thank you for your patience.

(No dialog)

Not a goddamn zombie in sight.

This is Chase Carter,

his wasting time and yours...

from False Alarmville, USA...

Any time now.

OK, let's do this.

You look beautiful.

Chase Carter here

for Hit Point Digital

reporting from inside

the quarantine zone.

Now this may well be the worst run

government operation since Katrina,

We're here at the Mega Dome

evacuation center,

where there are no buses,

no food, and no water.

The only thing people here

can be thankful for... that there are as yet,

zombies don't either.

Now, many of those abandoned here...

... are survivors of past outbreaks,

Excuse me.

For them, East Mission

is a kind of community for people...

... infected with the zombie virus.

With no evacuation in sight,

they depend on the tents

behind this fence...

... and the drugs inside,

to quite literally remain human.

I'm putting myself asleep.

This story has been done.

We're not going to get a million plus hits

talking about tents.

Alright, then so let's talk about people.

Let's tell their story.

Nobody cares about these people...

... unless they're eating other people.


You look like sh*t, man.


Mind you...

They might care about her.

Oh, com'on!

Watch me take this chick viral.

Yeah, It's always the pretty ones,

Excuse me.


Chase Carter, Hit Point Digital.

Can I ask you a few questions?

- On camera?

-I'm not interested.


This is your chance to tell your government...

... How you feel about being abandoned.

Stuck here...

... next to them.

Anything you want to say.

Alright, fine.

Great. What's your name, again?

- Crystal.

- Crystal.

- You ready?

- I'm ready.

Crystal, do you feel your government

abandoned you?

What I think is if all these

people were not infected,

we would all be on the

bus right now.

But this is what happens.

They mess up, and we get screwed.

And then guys like you

come down here with your cameras...

... and film it make money selling

commercials. It's awesome.

Don't you think that the American people

deserve to know the truth?

The American people

don't give a sh*t.


You don't seem too

concerned about zombies, themselves.

You serious?

They terrify me.

Only an idiot wants to see a zombie.

That went really, really well.

I'll totally will send.

Laugh it up, but we are

the only ones with the balls...

... to cover this

thing from the inside.

So, what does that make you,

the next Frank West?

Why not?

Because he almost died.

You're gonna risk your life for this story?

- No.

- No.

But I'm willing to risk yours...

I've got an idea.

- Come on.

- God...


Follow me.


Chase, no.

We are not going to get anything

from these people by embarrassing them.

We want drama,

we've got to get the needles.

No, no. I didn't come here

to explore people.

This is how we are going

to make a name for ourselves.

You know what?


What's this?

Remind yourself what real news looks like.

What it use to look like.

Real News!

Excuse me.

Hey, you alright?

Jesus Christ!



Hold him.

Sh*t, I thought you injected.

I did.

Back, back!

Nurse! Nurse!




God hates...








Frank West, famously survived...

... the first zombie outbreak

in US history.

He then rose to fame with his reporting...

...on the 2006 outbreak in

Willamette, Colorado.

Frank, we don't know what's going on...

...inside East Mission yet.

How bad will it get?


Bad, Sue.

Very bad.

What do you mean by that?

Uh... I don't know,

people are going to get eaten,

faces chewed off.

Screaming, as they go down.

Their hands, arms,

guts ripped out.

People are going to be
