Logline

From the co-creator of Night of the Living Dead, John Russo…A zombie kept in hiding by his niece and nephew suddenly becomes famous when the world discovers he can talk and reason as though he were alive. As his popularity grows, he is discovered by zombie hunters who want to kidnap him and hunt him for sport.

 

Synopsis

Fifty years ago, there was a devastating zombie apocalypse. It was brought under control for a while. But the Dead wouldn’t stay dead. The zombie disease kept on erupting. Nobody knew how or why. There was no apparent cause or cure…

 

The flesh-eating ghouls had to be destroyed with guns, clubs, and torches; hunting camps were formed to keep the zombies contained. A televangelist, Rev. Hotchkiss, begins promoting that, “The dead must be spiked!”

 

Sometimes the loved ones of these zombies wanted to protect them, instead of driving spikes into their heads or tossing them onto a bonfire. There were rumors about flesh-eating zombies who had recovered their human faculties, could walk, talk, and even have sex while they persisted in satisfying their cannibalistic cravings.

 

The most infamous of these ghouls is the one who calls himself Uncle John. Brought out of hiding by his niece and nephew (CyFi and Oscar), Uncle John is introduced to the world by agreeing to a television interview with a popular reporter, Mandy Frost. As Mandy reports on Uncle John, other media outlets quickly follow and Uncle John becomes a household name.

 

Meanwhile, a detective, Jane Smart, is investigating a series of murders and she begins wondering if Uncle John had something to do with them.  She begins to focus her direction on Uncle John, his family, zombie events, etc.

 

As Uncle John’s popularity grows, he catches the attention of Stush, a mobster who runs a local zombie hunting camp, where patrons pay to hunt zombies and make wagers on how many kills they get. Stush hatches a plan to kidnap Uncle John for the ultimate hunting party.
