SOS: Save Our Skins

Synopsis: SOS: Save Our Skins is the tale of two hapless British geeks who wake up in New York City only to find that the entire human race has vanished. But as they explore the seemingly empty world before them, Ben and Stephen soon realize they're not alone after all... Juggling sci-fi, comedy and horror, SOS: Save Our Skins sends Ben and Stephen on a desperate journey to find their loved ones, escape the jaws of death and work out why they're one of the few remaining people on Earth. But the answer to the mystery is bigger, crazier and more apocalyptic than they could ever have imagined, and puts the fate of the planet into their very stupid hands.

This is an SOS.

We don't know what's happened,

but everybody has disappeared.

There are no people, no police,


We're all alone.

There's nobody.

If anyone can see

this message, please,

get in touch...

Will you stop eating that ham?!



U I q

This is ridiculous.


What time is it?

Nine in the morning.


I'm really jet lagged.

Shouldn't have taken

all the sleeping pills.

Yeah, I didn't take mine in the end.


It was your idea to

take them in the first place.

Yeah, I know, but then I saw

how sleepy they made you,

and it got me all anxious.

Even thinking about

taking sleeping pills

is keeping me awake.

So I decided not to take them,

and I was out like a light.

Slept like a baby.

Oh, great.

There's nothing on TV.

Try HBO.

No, there's literally nothing on TV.

They definitely watch TV

in America, don't they?

Ben, all they do is watch TV.


- For breakfast?

- Yeah!


What is the point

of going on holiday

if you can't watch TV?

We should get going.

Chewbacca's on at 10

followed by Robocop's boss,

and the dad from

The Lawnmower Man.

What about Xena?

"Xena Warrior Princess,

Conference Room B at 2 o'clock."

Do you think she'd give me a kiss?



Not if you were

the last man on earth.

3100... We can either

see Rutger Hauer,

or a monster from Doctor Who.

Is there no one from

The Walking Dead?

No. There's a guy who was in

one episode of Game of Thrones.

- Who?

- Just says, 'Knight who fell off horse'.


- How about the puppets from Labyrinth?

- Yeah, okay.

There should be

some jawas serving coffee.

I thought everything was

bigger and better in America.

The one in Leicester

had more going on than this...

Where's Chewbacca?

Leicester's bigger

than New York, though, right?

Where's anyone?

Are they gonna serve some food?


I saved up for six months

for this trip, Ben!

- Really?

- My mom bought my ticket.

Your mom buys you everything.

Maybe they're all in another room.

Wait here, I'll go and check.

Hoth Wampa!

Leave your bag there,

why don't you?




Is anybody here?

I've come for breakfast!


Ugh! Messy pigs...

'Tug '13s'

- What are you doing?

- I got bored of waiting.

Nobody's here.

Something's wrong.

Nothing's wrong.

Look, sausages!

Are you sure those were

just sleeping tablets?

'Cause I'm very

confused right now.

Calm down,

we're just running late.

What? The entire hotel?

There must have been

a fire alarm or something.

They've evacuated

the place without us.

What if this is it?

What if it's the big one?

A zombie attack!

Oh, god, what if this is zombies?

'Cause even though

I love zombies,

I also really hate zombies.


There's got to be

a logical explanation.


That would be logical!

It's daylight now -

they'll all be asleep!

It's not vampires...

You don't think

it could be -

Don't say "gryphons".

It could be gryphons...

or a gas leak.

Which is the most likely?


Let's look outside.

Right, we've got to

get back here for 2:00.

I'm not missing Xena,

not like we did in Leicester.

Come on!

Careful! I haven't been

to the toilet yet!


I'm starting to think...

somethings wrong.


It isn't just me.

New York should be busy, right?


This is like "I Am Legend"!

Hey, maybe we'll meet Will Smith!

I'd ask him why

he made "After Earth".

Okay, I'm bored of walking now.


This is mental!

I know! Who has a burger

without catsup?

This is the city that never sleeps!

Well, they all finally went to bed.
