Dead Season

Synopsis: When a worldwide viral outbreak leads to a plague of zombies scouring the earth for the living, two survivors flee the chaos of America to a remote island, hoping for a chance to start a new life. What they find is unrelenting horror. Beyond the hordes of the flesh-hungry undead, the other people already on the island force the pair into a fight-or-die battle amongst themselves. Armed only with crude weapons, they must descend to savagery and cutthroat tactics just to make it through each day.
Genre: Horror, Sci-Fi

It was 57 weeks ago.

Got a standard cardiac arrest call.

I went out... couldn't revive the guy.

Pretty normal.

Then after a couple of minutes...

That's when it all started.

Three days later Pittsburgh was

on lockdown. Then the state,

and everywhere else.

A couple of months before all this,

my wife, she left me. She got the kid.

I had no way of contacting them.

There were no phones or internet of

course... So I went out to find them...

I buried them.

I just kept walking... 62 days,

I didn't really know what else to do,

you know?

Anyway... A guy I used to work with

retired to coral cove in Miami.

It's a small marina.

I contacted him a few days ago and

I guess he's made a living

helping people get boats

and escape into the waters.

And I figured, hey, why not try

my hand at that?

You're free to join.

Elvis? Elvis? You still there?

Yeah, I'm Here. Sorry about that.

So what about you?

About the same as yours, I guess.

Been on my own about a year now.

Two months ago I met this kid,

and we worked our way down to Florida.

Who's the kid?

His name's Cody. He's pretty quiet,

but he's a tough little dude.

Look, I don't know how much longer

we're gonna last here on our own.

You know, just the two of us.

I could always use some company.

Probably be working

our way down south soon.

Maybe we'll stop by your place

for a beer or something.

Alright, but you're gonna have to

pick some up, cause I'm all out.

Need anything else at the store?

Some whiskey? You have my address.

Any chance I can get your name?

Guess Not.


Didn't mean to scare you.

Here, eat this.

I'm not hungry.

Huh? Alright.

Here you go Buddy. Lean up.

My name's Elvis.

What's your name?



OK. Tweeter... So how old are you?


Well, that's cool.

Well, if you want, umm, you two can rest...

I've got more blankets in the closet.

King Me.

You are good at this! You know...

I didn't have any parents growing up either.

I used to get really lonely.

I don't feel that way anymore.

My turn?


Elvis? You there? Elvis!

I'm here!

Well, your boat's ready to go.

It's got a full tank too.

Thanks, I really appreciate this.

Just to let you know,

I got a list of people waiting.

I'll be there tonight with everything.

Alright, see y a then.


How far away is this guy?

I dunno... six hours,

eight hours... Half a day maybe.

You trust him?

Yeah, I do trust him.

If he can get us to a place without

walkers... I'm willing to take

that risk. Coming? Or staying?

Yeah? Who is it?


Elvis? Who are they?

They're fine. They're friends.

Still good?

Yeah... Come on in. - Oh, man!

Haven't had those in a while. Yum!

The only way out

is down through the warehouse.

Sabrina Lee. She's at the end

of the pier. Everything else...

Is in here.

The map is from the warehouse to the pier.

The other is to the island.

The fish are toxic,

so ration your food.

Don't get surrounded. You'll be fine.

You know you might want to consider...

Maybe coming with us.

Man, I got too good of a thing

going here.

Alright. Take care.

Awesome. We have to go through em'.

Just stick with me OK?

You know the drill.

C'mon, Cody.




The boat!

Hey, Cody, There's Probably

a bed down there.

Damn it!

Oh God!? Cody, let me see are you OK?

Come here. Come on. Let me see.

You're tough.

Arrr I gonna turn into one of them?

I'm not gonna let that happen. OK?

Hey, Cody?

I don't feel good.

I know sweetie. What's this?

My mom gave it to me.

It's for good luck.

Come here, sweetie.
