What am I doing with my life?
I'm so pale. I should get out more.
I should eat better. My posture is terrible.
I should stand up straighter.
People would respect me more if I stood up straighter.
What's wrong with me? I just want to connect.
Why can't I connect with people?
It's because I'm dead.
I shouldn't be so hard on myself.
I mean, we're all dead.
This girl is dead. That guy is dead.
That guy in the corner is definitely dead.
Jesus, these guys look awful.
I wish I could introduce myself,
but I don't remember my name anymore.
I mean, I think it's started with an "R",
but that's all I have left.
I can not remember my name or my parents or my job.
Although my hoodie would suggest I was unemployed.
Sometimes I look at the others and try to imagine what they were.
You were a janitor.
You were the rich son of a corporate CEO.
You were ...
A personal trainer.
Now you're a corpse.
I found a hard time piecing together
how this whole apocalypse thing happened.
Could have been chemical warfare, or airborne virus,..
or a radioactive outbreak monkey.
But it doesn't really matter. This is what we are now.
This is a typical day for me.
I shuffled around, occasionally bumping into people.
Unable to apologize, or say much of anything.
It must have been so much better before.
When everyone could express themselves,
communicate their feelings
And just enjoy each other's company.
A lot of us had made our
home here at this airport. I don't know why.
People waited at the airport, I guess.
But I'm not sure what we are all waiting for.
Oh man. They call these guys "Boneys".
They don't bother us much.
But they'd eat anything with a heartbeat.
I mean, I will too,
but at least I'm conflicted about it.
We'll all become them someday.
At some point you just give up, I guess.
You lose all hope. After that, there is no turning back.
Oh, man. Gross. Stop, stop, dont pick it. You're making it worse.
This is what I have to look forward to.
It's kind of a bummer.
I don't want to be this way.
I'm lonely, I'm lost.
I mean, I'm literally lost.
I've never been in this part of the airport before.
These guys are lost too.
Wandering around but never getting anywhere.
Did they feel trapped?
Did they want more than this?
Am I the only one?
This is my best friend.
By best friend I mean we occasionally grunted..
and stared awkwardly at each other.
We even have almost a conversation sometimes.
Days passed this way.
But sometimes, we even find the actual words ...
Words like: Hungry.
- And... - City.
Even though we can't communicate,
we do share similar taste in food.
Travelling in pack is kinda make sense.
Especially when everyone and their grandmother's
trying to shoot you in the head all the time.
God, we move slow.
This could take a while.
Hello, and thank you for your service today.
In media, ever since this plague destoyed our world,
Do you think we're getting the stuff for the cure?
And the survival of our world ...
No one believes in a cure anymore, Julie.
For volunteers like you,
to gather resources from beyond the wall.
But first a word of caution.
Corpses look human, they are not.
They do not think, they do not bleed.
Whether they were your mother
or your best friend, they are beyond your help.
They are uncaring, unfeeling..
incapable of remorse.
Sounds like someone I know, Dad.
Just picture them as this.
As sons and daughters of possibly the sole remaining
human settlement on earth.
You're a critical part of what stands between us and extinction.
Therefore, you have an obligation to return to us safely.
And if you remember your training,
Good luck, godspeed, and God bless America.
Welcome to the Dead Zone! Look alive out there!
Hey Berg, are you gonna help us out or what?
No, I don't. I'm almost at level five.
Did you hear that?
We should bail.
Oh, hey, we can't just bail. We have orders.
Do you have any idea how much medicine
this city goes through a month?
We need pharmaceutics to survive. We can't just bail or...
God, you sound just like my dad.
Yeah, it was not a compliment.
Oh here, guys. Take some Prozac. It might cheer you up.
I told you, I heard something.
Perry, let's bail.
We have orders, Julie.
It was nothing anyway.
You're being paranoid, okay?
Aim for the head!
Now I'm not proud of this.
In fact, I'd appreciate it
if you might look away for a moment here.
I do not like hurting people.
But this is the world now.
The new hunger is a very powerful thing.
If I don't eat all of him, if I spare his brain,
He will rise up and become a corpse like me.
But if I do ...
I get his memories, his thoughts.
I'm sorry, I just can't help it.
The brain is the best part,
the part that makes me feel human again.
You like it, Perry ?
I do not wanna hurt you.
I just wanna feel what you felt.
To feel a little better.
A little less dead.
Perry, I think I love you.
Don't you say nothing...
I think I love you too, Julie.
I miss airplanes.
My mom used to say that it looked like an Etch a Sketch up there.
I like that you remember that kind of stuff.
If you don't, it's just...
All be gone, you know.
Yeah, the world is so messed up.
Not all of it.
Perry, where are you? Answer me!
I don't know what I'm doing.
What's wrong with me?
These other guys will never bring a living person home.
You know why? Because that's crazy.
Right now, they think she's just another one of us.
A new addition to the family.
They would think I was insane.
If they could think.
Why life has to be so weird?
What am I doing?
maybe I could have thought this through a little more.
I can tell when a girl needs her space.
There's a lot of ways to get to know a person.
Eating her dead boyfriend's brain
is one of the more unorthodox methods, but...
This is a special occasion.
A special occasion, Sir?
It's my mom's birthday.
- To Diane. - To mom.
So Perry, Julie tells me you've been working in agriculture?
But tell me you would
never consider going to work construction with your father?
You know, on The Wall we need good people.
Don't mind him, Perr.
Dad's idea in saving humanity...
is to build a really big concrete box,
put everyone in it,
and then wait at the door with guns until we grow old and die.
Well, Julie, without the wall we would be eating...
brains now instead of rice.
This is the only way to pass The Wall,
Otherwise we just stopped.
- Okay? - Okay.
It's not that bad, come on.
I haven't heard from him for two days, Julie.
He's on construction detail, Perry. He's working.
My Dad goes weeks without checking in.
Okay, come quietly.
It's gonna be okay.
Come on, let's go.
No wonder she's so afraid of me.
I need a different approach.
Okay, here we go.
Don't be creepy, don't be creepy, don't be creepy.
What are you doing?
Please leave me alone.
Why did you save me?
Keep you safe.
What are you?
I am hungry.
Just let me go.
Ah, it's not safe.
Well then you're just gonna have to go and get me some food.
Because I'm starving.
I would be very grateful for some food.
It's too much.
I told you ...
Yeah, I get that.
I really am hungry though.
Hmm, my God.
Stop staring! You're acting weird again.
Oh, man ...
Can't remember the last time I had a beer.
You can't be all that bad, Mister Zombie.
You have a name?
What is your name?
This stage is not going well.
I want to die all over again.
Did your name start with R?
Randy? Uh ...
Why don't I just call you R?
I mean, that's a start, right?
I want to go home, R.
I get that.
And look ...
I know that you saved my life and I'm grateful for that.
But you walked me into this place.
So I know that you can walk me out again.
Oh, no! She can't leave, she's just got here.
Tell her she has to wait, tell her ... they'll notice.
Heh, not bad.
You'll... be okay.
Are there others like you?
I've never ever heard a corpse talking before.
I mean, apart from, you know... groaning.
Few days, huh?
And what am I supposed to do in a few days around here anyway.
This is awesome!
Do you wanna try?
Oh, wait for it.
Okay, okay... pick a foot.
You're using two feet, pick... Pick one foot.
There you go.
There you go!
Allright, two hands on the wheel.
This was a beautiful car!
What's with all the vinyl?
Couldn't figure out how to work an iPod?
Ah, you're a purist, eh?
Yeah, that's true.
Lot more trouble though.
There you go again, shrugging.
Stop shrugging, shrugger!
It's really not a committal gesture.
These are really cool records.
How did you get all these?
I... collect things.
Yeah, I can see that.
You, my friend, are a horror.
I know this awesome record store.
You'll love it, that's so cool.
Was so cool.
All right then.
R, can I ask you something?
He died back there,
Will he come back
as one of you?
That's good, I guess.
Something happened to him.
A lot of things happened to him.
But I guess there just came a point where
he couldn't aborb anymore.
It's just ... in my world,
people die all the time.
So, you know, it's not like
I'm not sad that he's gone.
Because I am.
But I think I have been...
preparing for it,
for a really long time.
What are you?
Man, it must be nice to sleep.
I wish I could.
I wish I could dream.
That's not really an option for me.
The dead don't dream.
This is as closest as we get.
You sure about this, son?
Sorry for your loss.
Get him one and show him how to use it.
Hey Berg, are you gonna help us out or what?
I'm almost at level five.
Did you hear that?
I did. We should bail.
We can not just bail. We have orders.
You sound just like my dad.
- Thank you. - Yeah, it was not a compliment.
I told you I heard something.
Aim for the head!
You said a few days.
It's been a few days.
I have to go home.
S... stay together.
It isn't safe.
Oh, my God.
Come with me.
Want to ... help.
Who the hell ask you?
Sure it is.
- Over there, the garage. - Hold on.
Oh, I'm so happy to see you right now.
Jesus... I'm freezing.
I'll have to pull over.
This would be the last neighborhood my dad evacuated.
We need to get to a house and have some food.
Okay, come on.
Oh man, it is locked.
Look what they have.
It's all right, see?
It is important to preserve memories, you know?
Especially now with the world is on its way out.
Everything you see, you may be seeing for the last time.
Perry used to say that.
Here. Take a picture.
The bed upstairs isn't too rum , so I'm gonna go to sleep.
Look, R, I was thinking ...
You know, you could ...
Sleep in there if you want.
On the floor.
This house has creeped me out, so ...
feel it ...
Holy shit, it's my dad.
He would have killed you.
If he'd saw you, he would have shot you in the head.
And you're just begone.
These clothes are soaking still,
I'm gonna lay them out to dry.
Do you have to eat people?
Or you'll die?
- Yup - But you didn't eat me.
You rescued me,
Like... a bunch.
It must be hard being stuck in there.
And I can see you trying,
That's what people do.
You know, we try to be better.
Sometimes I get sick of it a little bit.
But look at you...
You try so much harder than
any human you might have seen.
You're a good person, R.
It was me.
What was you?
- I guess I kind of knew that. - You did?
I guess I hope that you didn't.
I'm so... sorry.
The dead do not sleep.
If you guys can have any job in the world,
and pretend that everything is totally different.
What would you want to do?
- Nursing. - Yeah?
Yeah, and finding... finding a cure.
I like that.
I think someday someone's
gonna figure out this whole thing, and...
Exhume the world.
And... and what does that mean?
- Exhume means to like revive. - It means to dig up
as in digging up a corpse.
What the hell are you doing here?
Woah, are you actually dreaming right now?
- I'm not sure. - You can't dream, corpse.
- Dreaming is for humans. - Chill out, Perry.
He can dream if he wants to.
What about you, R?
What do you wanna be?
I don't know.
I don't even know who I am.
You can be whatever you want.
Isn't that what they say?
We can, right? You and me?
It's not gonna happen, loverboy.
Not after you told her you ate her ex.
So much for dreaming. You can't be whatever you want.
All I ever be is a slow, pale,
Hunched-over, dead-eyed zombie.
What I think is going to happen
that she'd actually want to stay with me?
This is what I get for wanting more.
I should just be happy with what I had.
Things don't change, I need to accept that.
It's easier not to feel.
And I would not have to feel like this.
- Identify yourself! - It's just me, Kevin.
- It's okay, I'm fine. - Just stop right there!
- I'm not infected. - I said stop, Julie.
Okay, fine, fine.
Is she okay?
I sent half a dozen units out looking for you.
- Nora said you were taken into... - Yes, I was.
I escaped, I was holed up in houses, suburbs and...
I found a car, so I came here.
Julie, are you sure nothing bit you?
- Do I look infected to you, Dad? - We have to be safe.
Yeah, I know, I know.
I'm fine, though, I promise.
I thought I lost you.
Well you didn't, Dad.
Yeah, good to be back.
So I'm just going to go home. I'm gonna blend in.
I'm gonna stop thinking so much.
I'm gonna forget about her.
Just like I forget about everything else.
Oh, shit, I'm cold.
Is that what this is?
- Corpses don't get cold. - Yo.
We... coming here.
Boneys, they chased me out,
came to find you.
Where is she?
- Are you okay? - No.
Boneys... are looking... for you.
She started... something...
- Dream! - A dream?
We are... changing things.
- We are. - We are.
I have to tell her.
Will you help?
So... I'll wait here.
It's not that bad, come on.
Julie and I were giving the others hope.
And it was spreading fast.
I guess the Boneys didn't like that,
that must be why they are looking for us.
I have to tell Julie,
I have to explain what is happening before it is too late.
I have to. Oh, no. Oh, no.
Please, go. Go with your friends. Shoo!
Leave me. That's it, okay.
No, I'm serious, Nora!
I mean, corpse's just a stupid name that we came up with
for a state of being we do not understand.
What is wrong with me?
I gotta tell you something.
This is kinda weird, please do not freak out.
I actually miss him.
You... you miss him?
- I'm not interested in him... - Like ...
Like you're attracted to him.
Like he could be your boyfriend.
Your zombie zombie boyfriend?
I know it's really hard to meet guys right now with
the apocalypse and stuff, trust me.
And I know you miss Perry...
Okay? But Julie, this is weird.
I wish the internet would still working,
so I could just look up whatever it is that's wrong with you.
I'm getting ready for bed.
I'm glad you're back.
Have sweet dreams about your zombie.
What are you doing here?
I came to see you.
You can't just do that.
Griggio, shut up, I'm trying to sleep.
Are you crazy?
The people here, they are not like me.
If they see you, you will get killed. You understand that?
- Are you talking to yourself? - No!
Seriously, what is going on here, Julie?
Oh, my God!
Is that him?
I know. I'm sorry too.
I actually missed you.
It's funny, you're warmer than I remember.
It's the patrol.
Come on, get inside.
You're lucky my Dad got pulled into some emergency thing.
You're safe here tonight, R.
After that, I do not know what we're gonna do.
How did you die?
I don't... remember.
How old are you?
Because you could be 20-something.
But you could also be a teenager,
you know, you have one of those faces.
Oh, my God!
I can't even smell you,
you do not smell rotten. He does not smell rotten.
Nora, he didn't come here for an interview. Stop.
Why did you come here, R?
To show... everyone.
Show them what?
That we can change.
R, no one here is ever gonna buy that.
Not that we can get you even close enough to tell them.
As soon as they saw you, they would blow your head to beds.
Wait a minute...
Did you say "We"?
Lots of us... changing...
That's kind of a big deal.
We have to move... fast.
- What do you mean? - Boneys...
They're chasing us.
Okay, we have to go to my Dad.
That is a very bad idea.
No, Nora, he was a reasonable guy once.
No, no, I think you're confused.
It was your mom that was the reasonable one.
That was your Dad, that grounded you for a year...
for stealing Peach Schnapps.
Assume it's your dad eliciting, "Shoot corpses in the head!"
What other choice do we have, Nora?
Still, we have to get him through the city.
Someone will definitely see you.
Not much time.
We can fix him up.
I have some make-up that I was saving for some special occasion
that obviously isn't gonna happen.
Yeah, we could.
We can put on a little bit of foundation...
Maybe a little blush.
Probably a lot of blush.
Would you change this song, please?
Why? It's funny!
I think it's not.
You look hot!
It's just... you look nice.
I don't know how my dad's gonna be.
Yeah, it's kind of crazy. This might not work.
No matter what, we stay together.
We're changing everything.
Stay together... promise?
- Hey, it's game time. - Allright, let's do this.
- Where are you guys headed? - To see my Dad, Kevin.
Miss Grigio, I can't let you guys in.
We are in high alert around here.
- What is going on? - It's classified.
All right, well, we have our own classified business, so come on!
Say something human, say something human.
How are you?
- Nailed it! - He's fine.
Okay, you guys wait here.
What are you doing here?
What is going on? What is all this?
Not sure, but it's not good.
We've been gathering reports,
there are sizable packs of skeletons and corpses
coming toward us.
We do not know why, but if they're here to attack...
Nothing we can do about it, too many of them, too few of us...
So I want you to get home, lock down the house.
I had a gun there at your room.
- I need to talk to you. - Julie...
Dad, it's important.
This is gonna sound pretty crazy, but,
I think the dead are coming back to life.
That does sound crazy.
They are changing, Dad.
I don't know. They're somehow curing themselves.
Do you think they are curing themselves? How is that?
I saw it.
It's really happening!
You know what is happening, Julie?
What's happening is
everyday there're more of them and less of us.
They are not curing themselves!
We are their food source. They are not becoming vegan.
They do not eat broccoli, they eat brains!
Your mother's and your boyfriend's included.
Okay? So I want you to wake up!
Explain yourself to me so I can speak your word.
I got this.
Get yourself home,
barricade yourself in the shelter.
There's enough stuff there that you can...
Who are you?
This is R.
I didn't ask you, I asked him.
Who are you?
You're a corpse?
He saved my life.
He took care of me.
I triggered something in him and...
that must have sparked something in all of them.
Now he's triggered something in me!
Dad, no! Dad!
We wanna help.
Please, they don't wanna attack us. They wanna help.
We're getting better.
Things don't get better, things get worse.
People get bit, then they get infected,
- Then I shoot them in the head. - No, Dad.
That's what happened to your mother,
and that's what gonna happen to him.
I'm really sorry, Mr. Griggio.
Go... get out of here and be safe, no matter what, okay?
- Julie... - I have to go.
You ain't gonna shoot me.
Yes. Yeah, I will. Totally.
That could have gone better.
I need to warn my friends.
- Where? - The stadium.
Go to the subway.
Please excuse me.
Excuse me. Sorry.
Please welcome, come. Coming through.
We're ready for...
- a fight. - Yeah, I can see that.
The soldiers are coming,
Boneys are closing in.
They're here now.
- Keep them out. - We will.
- Spread here, right side and to your left. - Aye, sir.
- Do not shoot the girl! - We will not.
This way, come on.
Sir, your daughter is with the corpses,
I've got others.
Who the hell that we shoot?
We see corpses fighting skeletons, Sir.
Copy that, we are seeing that over here too.
Sorry, can you repeat that?
Roger that. We're seeing corpses fighting skeletons, Sir.
I'll keep you safe.
R? Please, please!
Are you okay?
Next one's the head.
- Move away from him, Julie. - No!
- Julie, move now! - Dad.
You have to listen to me.
I know we lost everybody.
I know you lost mom.
But you and me, we're still here.
We can fix all this.
We can start over.
They need our help.
Please, Dad, look at him.
He is different.
He is bleeding, Dad.
Corpses don't bleed!
You are alive!
R, you are alive.
Does it hurt?
This is General Grigio.
Situation has changed.
Let's get him sit the hell out of here.
Are you still bleeding?
On the one hand, getting shot in the chest hurt,
like a lot.
But on the other, it feel good to bleed,
to feel pain, to feel love.
I wish I could say we cured the boneys with love.
But really, we just straight up kill them all.
These guys kinda messed up and no one felt bad about it.
They were too far about to change.
It's actually a really good bonding experience for us and the humans.
Once we joined forces, they didn't stand a chance.
The ones we didn't kill just wasted away.
And the rest of us,
Well, we kinda learned how to live again.
For a while, it seemed like a lot of us forgot what that meant.
The humans began to accept us, connect with us.
This was the key to the cure.
It was scary at first, but...
Every great thing starts out a little scary,
This is how it happened.
This is how the world was... exhumed.
Need some help?
I have... zombie fingers.
- Here. - Oh, it's okay.
- I do not mind the rain. - Oh, I insist.
You are... very pretty.
Thank you, Marcus.
Now you're supposed to say...
I am pretty too.
Do you remember your name yet?
Well you know, you could just give yourself one.
Pick one, whatever you want.
- I like R. - Really?
You don't want to know what it was?
You don't want your old life back?
I want this one.
Just R, eh?
