[radio static]


The dead body must be exterminated by destroying the brain

or severing the brain from the body.

Should we be unable to stop the spread...


Military officials have not ruled out the use of artillery shelling

on areas heavily congested with the undead.

Can we listen to Metal Skull?

Nope, we're saving the battery.

[distant explosion]

[distant gunshot]

It's just that with a full tank...



Ow! What was that for?

I didn't see you run in to help with that towny wanker but me, so f***ing drop it!

Better leave it, bro

That really hurt, you dick!

Thanks, man.

Just one bit, you prick.

[distant explosion]

[distant screaming]

[gun cocking]

[zombies moaning]

[gun squeaking]


Don't waste the ammo. We might need it to fight our way out.

Yeah, that worked for Harry.


How's your hand, bro?

It's all right.

You're gonna turn into one of them... skull-for-a-face c*nts.

I am not. Doesn't even hurt, all right?

What do you think you're doing?

C'mon, mate. I really need a smoke.

You can't smoke in the car!

F*** off.

This is dad's car and you can't smoke in it, he's asthmatic!

I don't think your dad's gonna mind too much.


I mean, the car's need even vomit. One little ciggy wouldn't hurt, would it?


We were gonna tell you bro, but this isn't the right time.

Your dad's dead.

We were looking for you at your house, mate.

And there he was.


Dead, bro.

All f***ed up.


What about mum?

Was mum okay?

Oh... f***, what?

She was eating him.

Gimme a f***ing cigarette.

But you don't smoke!

[jean button and zipper opening]

[Paul shaving]

[Darryn urinating]

Ozzy Osbourne.

Yeah. Sabbath?

Yeah, f*** yeah.



Yeah. Fully, man. Fully.

KISS! Yeah...

F***, Sam? KISS ain't evil, bro. They're gay.


KISS ain't gay.

They wear make-up.

Yeah, but they got chains, spikes and dragons for feet mail on their boots.

Dragons! Rawr...!

F*** up, Sam.

Paul mate...

The f*** is this?


Lot of good that does.

Yeah, hold on.

Is dad's toolbox still in the back, bro?

Yeah, bro.


Right there.

[drill rattling and squeaking]

[wood chipping]

[metal grinding]

That's it.

[gasoline pouring]

All of it, bro. We don't wanna run out of DNA.

That's it.

We're geniuses!

Like Sabbath.



sigh Yeah!






Shall I get out and push?

F*** up, Sam!

[key snaps off]



pent up


[zombies moaning]

[Sam sobbing and weeping]

F*** up, f*** up, f*** up!

Leave him alone, he just needs a cigarette.

And I could f***ing have one if you c*nts didn't have to start smoking.

Come to think of it, none of you would have even started smoking

if this c*nt had just filled the tank to start with,

and we wouldn't even still be here

if you had to drill the f***ing hole in the right f***ing place!

I'm sick of it...!

I'm sick of all this sh*t...!

I want you to kill me.

Don't be so stupid.

What's the difference? We're f***ed...,

everyone I know is dead...,

and we're stuck in here... waiting to starve to death.

I've been thinking about it.

I've made up my mind.

You just need a cigarette.


I need to be dead.

And if you don't wanna be good mates and save me a lot of pain...,

then hell, I just have to step outside and not close the door.

But I'd rather not.

Can we eat you?

I guess.

Were you gonna like... cook me?

How are we gonna cook him?
