Let's do this!

Come on, you f***in' zombies!


I'm out!


Come on!

Come on!

I've got a story to tell.

Yesterday I went pig huntin'

with my brothers

Mulla and Tony.

I drove the car.

Tony brought his blues guitar.

Mulla brought

his favorite rifle.

And I brought

my mean little sawed off

pistol grip 12 gauge.

We went bush.

There was a strange feelin'

in the air.

Dead silent.

That night I... I...

we made a fire.

Like I usually do.

We just sat there

barely talkin'.

Then Mulla sees it.

Shooting stars.


I look up and I see them

lightin' up the sky.

And I'm scared.

I get a feelin'.

I get a feelin' right..


That night..

It took me ages to go to sleep.

And when I did..

I dreamed bad things.

I woke up in the morning..

Mulla and Tony were gone.

Then, I saw blood trails.

I followed them.

I saw Mulla.

He was dead.

I look out into the bush

and I see Tony.

I called out to him.


Then he turns.

That's not me brother.

Then he came at me.

And I just run.

Yellin' at him to stop.

But he just keeps comin'.

After a while I get tired

and I just start walkin'.

I must have went like that

for hours.

Me walkin' and him chasin'.

Then I turn, aim the gun.

I took out his legs.

I blew his kneecap off.

Then he starts crawlin' at me.

I aim for his head.

I couldn't do it.

I should have shot him.


You got any stories?

This morning I shot my wife

and child with a nail gun.

I don't know how to make that

into a story.


Get rid of it.

Wash your hands.

So I told Kaytlin that kissed Jason

but Jason's not officially

going out with Kaytlin.

Like they're just friends,

but he also told Angie that

they were friends

with benefits type deal.

So I don't know what to believe.

Jason told Max that

they were like going steady.

Come on, Meganne.

Hang up the phone.

One second.

So like Tea's like, "Oh, my God,

everyone thinks I'm a slut."

- Meganne!

- And I was like..

- Oi!

- ...no, they don't.

But they so do.

Watch your language, please.

- Put your phone away.

- I'm talking to Lisa.

I don't care

if you're talking to Jesus.

Off your phone

or you'll lose it.

- Do as you're told.

- I gotta go, Lisa.

Mum's having a hissy fit.

Okay. Laters.

- Oh, Barry.

- You're a full grub, dad.

Can you not be a barbarian

just for 3 minutes?

I'm sorry, babe.

Meganne, come on.

Eat properly.

Night, hon.

Stop it.

You're crazy.


Yep. Nice, Charlie.

Yes, nice.

Do that one more time

for me, babe?

- Charlie! Shh!

- Oh, God.

Hon, what's the matter?

What... the f*** is that?

Charlie! Charlie!


Charlie, don't..



Oh, Barry! Thank f***!

F***! Are you okay?

- Is Annie and Meganne safe?

- Brooke?

Listen, I don't know

what the f*** is going on.

Everyone is turning crazy.

Sherri and Charlie just turned.

Their eyes..

Their eyes went f***ing white.

Just slow down.

I had to chop off Sherri's

head with a God damn shovel.

Whoa whoa whoa!

Calm down. Where are you?

I'm in the studio

in Bulla Bulla.

Barry, listen to me, you gotta

get somewhere safe, man.

You gotta get

out of the city... like f***!




There's someone in the kitchen.


No, just... Barry, just stay

here. Just call the police.

Call the cops.

A little help!

Get this thing off me.

Get the axe!

Get the f***ing axe!

Hurry up.

What are you waiting for?

Meganne! Get back

in the bedroom! Go! Go!

- Straight to the car.

- Uh-huh.

Barry, come on!

Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

Meganne, get in the back, honey.

Keep your seatbelt on.
