Synopsis: A group of PhD students who work at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN find themselves in an emergency situation as a result of a problem with the accelerator. The maintenance crew have been transformed into zombies after the particle accelerator malfunctions. The students must try to evade the zombies while running through CERN's maintenance tunnels.

LHC Safety interlocks

Do Not Deactivate)

Hi, it's you. You're not supposed to be here.

James, get up. We're late.

What else can I say, drunk on a Sunday night.

Do you remember that part last night, when Amy got on the table...

That's my sister, I do not need to be reminded.

Where's all the food?

Come on, let's go.

Come on, guys, we're going to be late.

Do you care to drive after your stunt last night, Amy?

Oh - Hi Mark!

You're in.

Not going by bus, today?


I - sorry, I was driving past the shops and I picked him up.

Oh, OK.

So what's the rush, anyway?

Some kind of emergency meeting?


What do you think this emergency meeting is about?

I don't know, but it can't be that important.

Go on ahead guys, I'm gonna...

No, Dr Niven. LHC is most important experiment of our time.

I will not, due that unfounded theory -

Unfounded? Director, my results show that -

Inconclusive! Your results are inconclusive at best!

No. You'll have plenty of time for measurements when you're down in the tunnel tonight.

Director, we have to stop the LHC until we assess the danger.

No. Dr Niven, once we have fixed this problem, the LHC will run again as usual.

Finding the Higgs is the highest priority.

Why is Dr Niven going into the tunnels?

Why do you think the Director General said it?

Maybe they made a black hole.




So did you recover from last night?

Yeah, you too?


Wait, aren't you meant to be on your way to Barcelona by now?

I... might have missed my flight?

Oh no! [Laughs]

Good morning. I am professor Vacinski, Director General of CERN.

This meeting has been called because last night there was an emergency beam dump.

Here we see a monopole magnet in LHC sector 7G.

Beam sensors have detected that an unknown event caused this magnet to quench

and triggered an uncontrolled shut down.

If this happens again, the results could be catastrophic.

Due to the special circumstances, Dr. Niven is taking a team into the LHC tunnel

to investigate the cause and see what damage there is.

The LHC will be in shut-down, at least until the end of the week.

Since Dr. Niven will not be available, we will need four volunteers

to be on shift in the control room.

We'll do it.

Okay. You four.

Oh, I'm going to be in a conference in Barcelona.

Very well, you, you then.

Uh, I have an analysis note due this week so I'm not going to have time to do this.

The collider will be shut down, you can work in the control room.

Report to the control room at 9 p.m., that is all everybody.

Sucks to be you guys!

Here you go.


They don't look like proto-decay matricies.


Dr. Nivens got me working on this Higgs bio-entanglement simulation.

Some company gave a lot of money to CERN and I get stuck working on it.

I've got so much work to do.

Listen, are you okay after last night?


You and Matt?

Don't know what you're talking about. Anyway, are you jealous?

Hm, sorry.

Listen, I better go, I've got a lot of work to do.

Ugh, I'm so tired. I can't even think about work right now.

I hope he doesn't expect me to remember anything.

Ahh, Lisa! Did you finish the talk?

Yeah, just in time.

I had every confidence in you.

Did you get a chance to look at my simulation?

Ah yes, problems with the simple symmetric parameter lattice...

I think I found a way to express it differently.

I didn't implement it in my analysis code yet, but you might like to try it.

It looks more complex though, I don't know if it will work on my laptop.
