(thunder rumbling )




all the malignant noise

of a city gone.

I used to hate the noise.

But now I don't know.

There's nothing left.

Well, almost nothing.

What happened?

Where did it

all go wrong?

For that

I have no answers.

But I do have a story.

- ( snarls )

- ( screaming )

( gasps )

( gunshots )

( gunshot )

Come on.

Come on.

- ( snarling )

- ( loud chewing )

The gates of Cameo Place

keep the undead at bay.


"A few slip through

from time to time,

but our landlord is always

taking care of them."

- ( loud bang )

- ( snarling )

It looks like

his gun is jammed.

Maybe not.

Get away from the window.

( typing )

Dean, he needs our help.

What are we--

Dean, we've got to help him.

What can he do?

He's beyond any help.

Only a bullet

can save him.

68 years old,

and this is how he goes?

- Nasty little things.

- ( continues typing )

Pure evil on earth.

That's exactly why we need

to stay put till help arrives.

Who's gonna run

the generator, Dean?

Who knows? I'm not volunteering.

Get away from the window.

I bet as soon as

the stupid thing loses power,

you'll be out there trying

to get more gas again.

Yeah, but only to have these on

to drown out all the noise.

Why are you so cold sometimes?

Years of rejection.

I am dying of boredom!


Go ahead, ignore me.

Ignore me, Dean,

like you always do.

I'll just sit here.


One of these days...

You know,

never mind.


"With Mr. Charles dead

and gone,

unable to thin the number of ghouls

that slip through our gates,

who knows how long it will take before

they're clawing down our front door?"


Oh, God, what was that?

Woman #2:

Looks like my landlord's arm.

Thank you.

It's my only good deed

for the day, bucko.

My only one.

- Why the f*ck isn't this locked?

- I was waiting for you.

I heard gunshots.

- Gunshots?

- Yeah, a few minutes ago.

I told you about keeping

this door locked.

Look, I'm sorry.


There's motherfucking arm bones

in the yard.

Arm bones?!

I'm so sick of these

motherfucking zombies!

Got motherfucking arm bones

in the yard.

( sighs ) It's a motherfucking

plague, that's what it is.

Fucking biblical shit.

I do not need this.

Please, did you get it?


F*ck, woman, are you crazy? Would you

close those motherfucking curtains?

- Damn!

- All right.

They're closed.

Now tell me--

God damn!

Zombie apocalypse, woman's got

the fucking curtains open.

Shit! Didn't I tell you

to board that shit up?


What if those things

tried to get in?

Look, we're on the second floor.

Unless they learn to sprout wings

and fly, I think we're safe.

What were you doing

out there anyway, champ?

- My dad, he--

- Yeah, the guy in the street,


Maybe you shouldn't talk shit

about things you don't fucking know.

Come on, Marcus.

Let's get out of here.

We're going to get your father.

Go ahead, go.



We need him.

( loud chewing )

He's dead.

What you need is to live.

What you need is

to take care of this little man

and you ain't

gonna do it out there.

( sighs )

It's okay.

- ( sighs )

- Baby,


please talk to me.

I got it.

It's in the trunk

of the car.

Better not be fucking

with me, okay? I'm real hungry.

Yeah, and I'm starving

like a motherfucker,

but those things out there are

crawling over the motherfucking car.

You want that shit? You stick your head

out there in broad daylight and get it.

I'll get it

when the sun goes back down.

- ( squealing )

- Hey hey hey hey hey!

You know how I feel
