While Rob is attempting to start the car Albert is charged by the Zombie, he manages to kill the aggressor after a short melee, but the car is still switched off.


Rob moves to the other car parked. He begins to work on the wires, but suddenly the car alarm starts to sound loudly!


Rob is still working on the car when a scream exceeds the sound of the alarm. A man cries for help, he is on the run followed by a group of Zombies. He looks tired, his steps are slow and heavy, the Zombies behind him are getting closer.


Rob manages to stop the car alarm, immediately the neighborhood falls into a silence broken only by the screams of the fleeing man


The man is reached by the Zombies. He tries to defend himself, but they are to much for him alone and unarmed. The man falls to the ground and the undead start to devour him. A blood pool expands viscously on the ground.


The Zombies are feasting with the poor man. The scene is horrible. Rob falls to the ground, shocked.  After a while he loses control and run away without looking behind himself.

Rudolf is stunned and confused… <This is a nightmare!> whispers Rudolf unable to doing anything else, his eyes locked on the scene.

Albert is reached by a Zombie, so he has to recover himself quickly from the horrible view. Albert fights the monster with his bare hands and he knock down the aggressor who is still biting and grasping the air.


Albert and Rudolf move avay from the group of Zombies, but Rudolf’s ankle slows him down, so he is dangerously close to the first undead.


<I can’t flee without fighting!> cries Rudolf, his weapon aimed to the first aggressor.

The Zombies charge him with their uncertain steps and their arms stretched forward. The first shot takes down one of them. Rudolf is now in melee, but he manages to keep himself cold and determinated, and he kills the other two hitting them with his weapon.

<Yeah!> exults Albert <you hit them hard!>


While Albert shoots  to one Zombie, Rudolf flees from the group of remaining monsters, and the two men are able to leave the danger area and move towards Albert’s house.


<They were too close for my likings!> says Rudolf.

<We are alive, I think we have been lucky today> responds Albert <I hope luck will not leave us now… let’s go and check if Linda is at home>

<And what about Rob?> Rudolf continues <what we can do for him?>

<I don’t know where he could be> Albert says <He is a smart guy. If he uses his brain he will go to my house. He knows where we are going.>

The two men arrive to Abert’s house, the neighborhood is quiet, almost too much. Albert inserts the key in the door and slowly opens it. Lights are off, rooms are silent, the house is empty.

<She isn’t here…> wishpers Albert turning pale.

Rudolf looks around, a flashing red light attracts his attention. <Hey Albert, you have a message on the answering machine!> says Rudolf.

Albert runs to the phone and press the button next to the light. The recording starts, and Linda’s voice fills the room.

<She is alive! She is alive!> exults Albert.

<Yes she is> responds Rudolf <but now listen to the message, maybe she needs help>

Go to previous encounter – Day 1.1

The door suddenly opens and the hooded figure swoops into the building. Taken by surprise Albert and Rudolf raise their weapons, ready to fire.

<Do not shoot! Hold your fire!> Shouts the intruder <I’m here to help! Do not kill me!>

<Damn idiot!>blurts Rudolf <I was going to fill you with lead. Is this the way to go?> Rudolf observe the newcomer who slips back his hood.

<He is Rob> says Albert turned to Rudolf <he lives here nearby, is a big fan of  the radio…> Albert turns towards the young man in his early twenties, a boyish face on a man’s body <… let me guess: you heard the message and now you want to save the world, boy? We are not playing a game, we’re risking our lives, go home and stay sheltered!>

<Hey! I’m not a boy!> complains Rob <I thought that with my father’s gun…>

<Shut up!> Albert interrupts him <you are planning to go around to get yourself killed!>

<Hey! Do not argue> intrudes Rudolf <We’re not sure  that if he remains locked up at home he will be safer than with us. The guy here has a fine rifle, I think one more weapon makes us much safer…>


The three warily leave the building and begin to move towards the south. Albert leads the way followed by Rudolf and Rob.


<I hear something approaching, it seems…  it sounds like a siren!> exclaims Albert <The police is coming to get us rescued!>

The police car reaches the group, the doors are flung open and two agents exit the vehicle.

<Stop all of you!> Cries the older agent <Drop your weapons! You’re under arrest for launching a false alarm!>

Albert, Rudolf and Rob remain astonished, agents have flocked to arrest them! Is it possible that the police still do not know anything about the Zombie threat?


Firmly holding his rifle, Rob speaks to the policeman in front of him <We aren’t terrorists! How could you think that? We was trying to warn the city!>

<Of course…> responds the policeman <…the Zombie invasion. Don’t you know it’s a serious crime spread panic among people? Even if it was just a joke you could be indicted for terrorism! Now drop your weapons! I won’t ask it gain!> The voice getting colder while he grasps his gun.

<Damn!> blurts Rob <They heard us!>


Attracted by the noise the Zombies leave the armory door and approach the police car.

<There’s someone out there!> Says the younger policeman <a group of people is getting closer>

The zombies move unsteadily to surround the cop, ready to devour him.


<Shoot them down!> cries the policeman <Open fire! Fire!>

The cops shoot to the aggressors, one Zombie falls down killed while others get closer attracted by the noise


The Zombies are on the young policeman, and he is forced to defend himself with his bare hands. He hits hard the undead until they are on the ground, inoffensive.

The two policemen seem upset:


The cops get into the car and drive fast towards the city centre.

<Hurry up!> cries Albert <we have to move quickly, before others of them arrive!>

<Wait> responds Rob <let’s take one of these cars. We will be quicker and even safer!>

<Are you going to steal a car?> Asks Rudolf.

<After this crisis we will return it to it’s owner> proposes Rob.

<Ok, let’s do it> resolves Albert <But do it quickly, one of those monsters is approaching us>


While Rob begins his attempt to start the car, Albert controls the last zombie who is moving to the parking lot with his dragged steps.

<Come on Rob!> Albert  says <we don’t want to fight another of them! Hurry up!>


Will they manage to go away by car before being reached by the Zombie?

Go to the previous encounter – Day 0

After escaping from the Zombies who had gathered around the restaurant outside the city, Albert and Rudolf reach the outskirts, where Albert’s Radio Station is placed.

<Let’s go to my Radio Station… If I get there I can warn the city about the Zombie threat, and tell Linda to rush home> Albert said a couple of hours before <I have to keep her safe>

<Do not worry, you’ll be together soon> Rudolf has reassured him, hoping not to be too optimistic.


The city seems to sleep quietly while the sun is rising over the horizon.

<If you want to protect your girlfriend> whispers Rudolf <we need something better than a jack and a cleaver>

<Follow me, I know where to go> says Albert smiling.


Albert and Rudolf run to the armory decided to increase their firepower, but a few meters from the front door Rudolf slips to the floor with a thud and after having raised reaches Albert limping.

Suddenly the two heard something behind them … turn around, but fortunately there is nothing, except their fear…


On their second attempt Albert and Rudolf are able to force the door and enter the armory. Once inside they see, through the bulletproof windows, a group of Zombies approaching the shop.

<Rudolf, look around for something usefull!> exclaims Albert while starting to barricade the door.

<I have found a submachine gun!> exults Rudolf < find something for yourself while I finish the blocking of the entrance>


<I think we’re ready to go> says Albert, who is loading his brand new shotgun.

<I agree> responds Rudolf <this door won’t give way so easily>


The rear of the building is clear, no Zombies in sight. Albert starts running to the radio station, rudolf follows him limping.

Zombies on the other side start to hit the closed door, unaware of the escape of their prays.


Albert reaches the radio studio, he adjusts switches, controls and connections untile the “on air” light went on.

“Attention please!  Pay Attention! …This is not a joke… Listen to me carefully”


<Uff… We did it!> exults Albert <I just hope Linda is safe at home…> Albert’s eyes become sad for a while.

<So far we have seen  only 3 Zombies here in the city…> responds Rudolf <Maybe they aren’t so much numerous here nearby… Let’s go your Home quickly! Now we are able to manage the situation, but we don’t know what could happen.>

While Albert and Rudolf argue about the best route to follow, from the house in front of the radio station comes out a hooded guy clutching a hunting rifle.

The guy moves forward, loading bullets in his rifle… Which will be his intentions?

Extract from Albert’s diary

Leggi in Italiano / Read in Italian

“The year could not have started in the worst way. I’m serious.

For a change, this time it was my duty to stream the New Year Eve party on the radio . I think it’s the third year in a row that I was  forced to spend the evening driving up to Ennis to broadcast  a boring party where people play bad music . In this cases, I think I hate my job a little. Luckily Linda had the night shift at the clinic and at least I was spared the complaints about the dinners that go awry because of “that stupid radio.”

I was returning from Ennis when I realized that things were starting to fall apart. Along the way the headlight lit the scene of a car accident. Two cars were blocking the road, overturned and smoking. A third car was parked a few feet away with a man leaning against the open door. I stopped, there was no means of rescue and I asked the man if he had already called the police. < No > He answered  while closing the car door < you cannot get the line with the phone. Get the jack, we have to move one of these two cars! >. “

Albert and Rudolf approach the SUV, with the intention of being able to move it to clear the road. Just pass the vehicle they see someone moving in the night.

We found the two fools who have combined this mess! > Albert exclaims sarcastically.

It seems so, but there is something strange … > Rudolf answers while the two injured approach with a strange, quick, slowliness.

Zed or not zed

After a while Rudolf and Albert see the serious injuries that cover the bodies of two strangers. No one could move after losing all the blood that covers the clothes of the two. Suddenly the wounded start their attack, moaning and biting the air with violence. Albert and Rudolf prepare to counter the assault, the jacks tightly in their hands.

They look like Zombies! > Albert cries < These two are living deads! > The shrill voice comes out of his mouth while he flee away from his attacker directly into the countryside.

Rudolf manages to keep a cool head and delivers a sharp blow on the head of his attacker. The jack opens up a big hole in the forehead of the man who falls to the ground finally killed.

Zombie killer!

Rudolf, after the adrenaline rush, finds himself facing the assailant remained. This time, however, fear takes over and after a brief clash he runs away followed by Albert.

He is following us! > blurts Albert < and I think there’s another one out there >

<He is slow enough to let us flee away > Rudolf answer < Let’s go to that clump of trees, fast!>


Albert and Rudolf find shelter among the trees and bushes.

<Looks like one of those movies on the TV! > whispers Albert < Look! They  continue to move towards us … it’s like if they are able to see us in this darkness >

I think they feel where we are, or smell it … I really don’t know! Just don’t know what the hell are those things > Rudolf keep silent for a while as he tries to calm down < there’s a restaurant over there, if we can get there we can call the police! >


Albert and Rudolf move to the restaurant, dimly lit in the night otherwise black as coal. Behind them the two Zombies continue their hunting, driven by their hunger for human flesh …


Once in front of the building Rudolf and Albert find the door bolted from the inside.

These went on vacation and sealed the shop! > Shout Rudolf.

Let’s try to open it using the jacks! Hurry up! > The words of Albert trembling with tension while fumbling with the closed door. The two try several times to force the opening, but the door remains firmly locked in place. Meanwhile, from the darkness behind them, the sound of moaning and dragged footsteps is getting closer.

This door is too  strong > surrenders Rudolf.

Let’s try to enter from the back before there are on us! > solves Albert while moving to the building’s coner.


On the back they find another entrance and this time the door gives way under their blows. Albert and Rudolf enter the kitchen of the restaurant and while Rudolf blocks the entrance behind them Albert rummages through the tables and finds a heavy cleaver. < This can come in handy > rejoices Albert while the two Zombies begin to beat their fists against the closed door.

Albert and Rudolf decide to go upstairs while new creatures get closer to the windows of the restaurant.

There are others! > exclaimed Rudolf < from bad to worse! >

The two go up the stairs while the back door gives way and the windows shatter under the fierce blows of the newcomers. The interior of the restaurant is going to be invaded.


Searching in the dark rooms Rudolf and Albert find a second exit that falls from the first floor directly on the side of the building.

go down in a hurry > suggests Rudolf < we have to get out of here or we’ll be in trouble! Those monsters are more and more, and they are too close for my liking >


Arrived at the end of the ladder Albert and Rudolf hear their pursuers behind them, a few steps away.

We need to try to stop them > the words of Albert are halfway between a question and resigned determination.

From this door they  can’t exit all together> answers Rudolf < we have to try to keep them inside facing them a few at a time … like at Thermopylae! >

Yeah, right > Albert agrees < but those at Thermopylae didn’t return home!>

So we’ll have to do better > cut short Rudolf raising the jack, ready to strike.

The first two Zombies emerge from the door awkwardly, jostling with one another to slip into the hole left open by Albert and Rudolf. The two manage to hold their nerve and  strike hard on attackers, killing both.


While Albert and Rudolf are removing their weapons from the bodies of the deads, two other Zombies spill out the door, the hands clawing the air.

Fuck! This is really too much! > Rudolf screams when the corpse of the cheerleader in front of him grabs his arm. The panic gets the better, Rudolf wriggles and moves away from the view of the girl.

Albert instead finds the strength to facing his assailant, a young student with an eye-catching hole in the belly. With the cleaver  in his right hand Albert hits the target and kill his second Zombie.


Suddenly an explosion shakes the building. Hit by the uncoordinated movement of the Zombies, a gas cylinder explodes and ignites the building, burning down the Zombies left inside but attracting many others for the loud noise.


Taking advantage of the darkness the two manage to walk away, leaving behind the monstrous pursuers. After a long run the two stop breathless.

Hey.. > Rudolf says retaking his breath.

What? > Albert replied breathlessly.

I have not appointed> Rudolf says, holding out his hand < my name is Rudolf Rude, I am a debt recovery agent >

I would say it was a pleasure to meet you > Albert replies < but if this is a bad  evening I don’t think it’s your fault > Albert shaking hands with Rudolf < Anyway my name is Albert and  I am happy to met you >
