Synopsis: While camping in the woods, Polly Watt and her clumsy boyfriend Seth Belzer damage their tent. They decide to spend the night in a low-budget motel. Meanwhile the criminals, Lacey Belisle and Dennis Farell, have trouble with their runaway car while heading to Platt and they walk on the lonely road. When Polly passes by Lacey, she stops the car and the couple is rendered by Dennis. However, Polly hits something in the road and while replacing the tire, they are attacked by a weird splinter. The car overheats and they stop in a gas station, where they are trapped by zombies, victims of the splinter parasite.

- Okay.

For two seconds, mindful of what was

and follow me carefully, OK?

Go to sit together

at a motel.

There will be bugs everywhere,

power is likely to be defective.

My idea is that... will be the most

less comfortable place in the world,

so why are you crying?

We will not stop until

we will not find an appropriate place.

If not, I get myself.

Oh, look at that tree. Should
