Zombies! Season 1 Episode 3
James Ramos & Briana Brown
INT. SCHOOL. DAY. 2 DAYS EARLIER.
We see a couple of zombies roaming the school, aimlessly.
Suddenly, a gunshot is heard and a zombie collapses. Jaxon,
a 29 year old hunter, TREVOR, Officer Nick and Carlos enter
You two take the lower levels. Me
and Trevor will go upstairs.
Officer Nick and Carlos nod.
INT. SCHOOL. SECOND LEVEL.
Jaxon and Trevor go upstairs. Trevor sees a zombie and
How did they get in here?
I have no idea. Maybe they got
attacked before hand.
They check another hallway and they see its clear.
(into walkie talkie)
All clear. Bring them in.
Trevor is raising his gun up towards Jaxon. Jaxon looks at
him, and takes out his gun and points it at him.
What’re you doing...?
Jaxon moves to the side and Trevor shoots two zombies behind
him in the head. Jaxon looks at the zombies and looks at
INT. SCHOOL. LOWER LEVEL.
Michael and Olivia bring in all the survivors.
In here, we should be safe here.
Don’t panic, it’s all okay.
The survivors come in the shcool, and Olivia and Michael
close the doors.
Officer Carlos, Nick, Jaxon and Trevor meet back downstairs.
We’re all clear.
Good...let’s hope this place will
stay. We have more work to do,
Is there anything I can do?
Just make sure no one is infected.
I don’t even know how I can tell. I
don’t know the signs or symptoms,
or any of that.
Aren’t you suppossed to be a
I’m sorry, but excuse me for not
knowing whats making people eat
each other out there.
I see. Just make sure everyone’s
With all these people I can’t do it
Just do as much as you can. That’s
how you can help me.
Alright...I’ll do what I can.
Boys, we have more saving lives to
do. Trevor, I need you to stay
Me? Why me?
If ANYTHING we’re to happen here,
we need someone to protect people.
Me, Michael and Officer Nick and
Carlos will go out in search for
more people. They need our help
more than anything right now.
What if something happens to you
guys out there?
Enough with the "what if’s".
They’re really killing my vibe.
Jaxon and his crew leave. Trevor walks off. Olivia tells
people to enter the nurses’ office. We see Emily, watching
her. Ryan is with her.
What are you looking at?
She’s a doctor...
Yeah, so what?
You know I’ve always wanted to be
one. This can be my chance to help.
You don’t even know anything about
being a doctor.
She can teach me.
There’s 12 years of medical school
and you expect to learn it all in
Ryan, for once could you please be
supportive of what I want to do?
I’m just being realistic. Go and
help if you want but if you ******** up
it’s on you.
Pause. Emily chooses to ignore what he’s saying.
I mean...it’ll help speed things
up. Let’s think long term...how
long do you think we’ll be safe
It’s a school...how long do YOU
Camera slowly moves down to the basement of the school and
we see zombies eating corpses from the ground, and eating
flesh as blood is everywhere.
INT. STAIRWELL. NIGHT.
Sarah and Craig are quickly running up the stairs. Juno is
waiting for them.
Hey, what did you guys see?
They don’t say anything to him. They leave the stairwell and
into the halls. Juno walks after them.
(trying to stop them)
He walks in front of them, forcing Sarah and Craig to stop.
What was that all about? What did
you guys see?
Pause. Sarah and Craig look at each other, then at Juno.
If we tell you, promise you won’t
Why can’t he? We’re going to have
to tell someone eventually.
What did you guys see??
The infected are in the basement of
Please, keep this to yourself. We
need to keep this to ourselves.
We can’t! People think they’re safe
here. They’re trying to keep
theirsevles AWAY from the infected
and right now they’re right below
Who should we tell then?
The person who’s been protecting us
all this time? Jaxon? His team?
They’ll take care of it.
You know how hard he worked to
bring everyone here. I don’t think
it’s right putting so much pressure
on him, there’s only so much he can
He’s the sheriff. That’s his job,
is to protect us.
Ok. Fair enough. Let’s say he does
go downstairs and starts shooting
them up? Do you know how many
people will panic?
Everyone would go crazy. We need to
keep this to ourselves; at least
And what’s going to happen if the
infected break open through that
door? Would you rather have people
panic because they’re being
attacked or panic because someone’s
doing their best for our saftey.
They shouldn’t have to panic at
all. They need to be calm. That’s
the best way to come about this
Craig, you can’t call the shots
like that. That’s not your place.
WE found the door, WE found out
that there’s infected in here.
Atleast let us keep this between us
for now. People are tired, it’s
I think we should tell someone...
Like who? Who can we tell that
won’t freak out?
Xavier is walking in the hall and he sees Phoenix trying to
open a vending machine.
Dude what are you doing?
What the hell does it look like?
Sarah took too damn long so I’m
getting this myself.
Olivia said you should stay in the
Xavier...do you not know who I am?
Do I ever listen when someone
How did the speech thing go?
It went alright...Jaxon is saying
we should all stay here.
I know. I don’t really think it’s a
good idea either.
I don’t know, man. We don’t know
how it is out there.
I know what I saw back at home,
back at the gas station. I knew
from the moment we heard it on the
news. These cops don’t know what
they’re talking about.
I get that. But you need to get
through your nerdy mind that what’s
happening right now; out there,
it’s not one of your stupid little
video games. It’s real life. One
screw up, and you’re ******** done.
That’s something NONE of us can
They hear someone coming up the steps and it’s Sarah. She
turns and sees her cousins by the vending machine.
And where the hell were you?
There you guys are. I need you to
come with me.
There’s just something you two need
to see. Come on.
They follow her down the stairs and to the basement door.
What ever you guys do, keep this to
What is it?
They go down to the basement door. Phoenix sees Juno and
Well, well look who it is!
Juno and Craig laugh and they greet Phoenix, happy to see
You alright, man?
Yeah, yeah. Where have you guys
In here. Taking shelter. It’s good
to see you, Phoenix. I thought we
would never see you again.
(shakes his head)
He didn’t make it.
Wow. Guess karma finally got to
him. He didn’t stand a chance in a
world like this anyway.
(going to open it)
What’s behind the door?
Don’t open that door.
Shhh! Guys, be quiet before they
Sarah, very quietly, opens the door and shows Xavier and
Phoenix the zombies. They seemed to have wondered closer to
the door. They stare at them and Sarah slowly closes the
You’ve got to be kidding me.
There’s infected in the basement.
How long did you know this, Sarah?
Me, Craig and Juno found out not
even a half hour ago.
I wonder what happened.
Well what the hell are we going to
do? We can’t just leave and pretend
we didn’t see anything.
Why not? We need to really sit and
think on this.
There’s nothing to think about.
Why? Do you have a plan or
I say we go in there...and just
kill them off. Just us.
Are you kidding me?
What are you guys so scared for??
Their conversation is interupted when they hear the
stairwell doors open. Emily, Kierra and Ryan are walking
down the stairs from the second floor. Kierra and Emily are
walking next to each other as Ryan is walking behind them.
Come on! Why not?
What part of "no" did you not get?
You don’t expect to follow us to
the locker rooms, do you?
If I don’t want to hear the answer
I want, then yes.
Emily and Kierra look at each other, not knowing what to say
to that. They continue to walk and Phoenix comes up to them.
Phoenix! I’m so happy to see you.
Oh really? What’s the occasion?
(looks back to Ryan)
Got a little unwanted company with
You bothering my little sister,
(a little scared)
If I were you, Ryan, I would’ve
been up those stairs already.
I thought you guys were Jaxon-or
somebody. I need you two to do me a
favor...use any other stairwell but
This is the fastest way to the
You guys just need to trust me on
this. This stairwell is dangerous.
Xavier comes up the stairs and approaches Phoenix and
Wow is this like a family reunion?
Kierra what are you doing here?
Alright, what’s going on? You guys
have already given me the hint.
Should we tell her?
Alright. Guys, come with me.
They follow them down the stairs, to Juno, Craig and Sarah.
It really is a family reunion.
Who are you here with?
I came here with Emily.
Emily and Ryan join the rest.
And what is He doing here?
He came along with us. There won’t
be any trouble. Isn’t that right,
Alright guys, we’re going to tell
you something but you can’t tell
No one can know.
Alright, sure. No problem.
What is it?
The infected are behind that door.
I wish we were.
Wait a minute, let me just get this
straight...we’re taking shelter
here...and the infected are in
there...which means we’re all in
Pretty much summed it up.
This is crazy. And you’re telling
us we’re the only one who knows?
Is there a crowd in there?
I have no idea. Seems like there’s
quite a few...
Ryan slowly approaches the door.
They’re right in here, eh?
He then starts banging/kicking on the door.
COME AND GET IT! WE’RE RIGHT HERE
WHERE YOU WANT US!
Everyone begins yelling at him, and Phoenix grabs him and
wraps his hand around Ryan’s throat.
ONE more stupid move like that
again, I swear to ******** God I’ll
throw you in there myself. Got
Oh please. You in what ********
He looks around and Xavier, Kierra and Sarah are looking at
He wouldn’t even need an army.
From here on out, watch your back,
He lets him go. Ryan looks at Emily.
Don’t look at me.
Ok guys seriously, enough messing
around. We need to think on what
we’re going to do about this
Like I said before, we can fight
them off! Take back what’s ours!
This is suppossed to be our
He’s got a point...
NO he doesn’t. Xavier, you’ve seen
what they did...they’re eating
people using their ******** hands!
Their ******** mouths! They might
not even be human!
They aren’t human. I’ve seen it
too...they don’t care how much you
scream, they don’t care which part
of the body they rip off first, as
long as they get a bite from you
then they won’t care...that’s not
We also have to keep in mind we are
the ONLY people who know about
this. What if they open the door?
That guilt will be on ALL of us.
So you’re saying it’s best to go
Yes, in a way I do.
Alright...let’s say we do go inside
and kill them. What if they kill
us? That makes everyone else here
in danger. I know you guys have
family here too.
Don’t you see? We can put an END to
this right NOW! There’s no one here
I’ll be the first to stop you,
Kierra, or anyone from going
through that door, you understand?
I say we have a vote.
Yes. We’re all argueing about what
to do and what not to do.
There’s eight people here. What if
we have a tie?
Maybe we can flip a coin or
You losers can count me out. I
don’t want any part of this. Hope
they all just come out and kill you
As he’s about to leave, he stops and looks at Emily.
Short pause. She looks at everyone, then at Ryan.
I’ll catch up with you in a few.
He walks up the stairs and leaves.
You’re not really going with him,
Of course not.
Good. He’s such a douche.
Alright...all in favor on killing
Kierra, Xavier and Juno raise their hands.
And all in favor of keeping this
door on lockdown until someone
professional comes along?
Craig, Phoenix and Sarah raise their hands. Everyone looks
I...don’t know what’s best. Think
about it. If we go in there and
fight them off...what if one of us
gets bit? It’s not like we’re just
fighting one or two...there could
be a lot in there for all we know.
But...if we keep it a
secret...we’re not just risking our
lives, but we’re risking EVERYONE’s
life...in this whole school.
Did you have something different to
do in mind?
I think we should lock these doors.
Firmly lock it so not even a hoard
of the infected could break
I’m good with that.
If we lock it up real good...we
shouldn’t have a problem.
What could we lock up the doors
When I looked inside I saw some
chains on the floor...if I can get
to those chains, then these doors
will hold very strong.
You’re not suggesting that you--
--Go in there? Yeah.
No, Phoenix...that’s suicide! I
can’t let you!
You just got done saying if me or
Kierra walked in there...
Listen...I’m your older brother.
Sarah, you know you’ve been like a
little sister to me too. I’m here
so you guys won’t be in ANY
danger...okay? And...I’d rather
have something happen to me then to
see something bad happen to any of
But...if anything happens to you...
Kierra...look at me. Have I ever
I’m here for you guys. I’m going
(holding back tears)
Yeah, so, umm...about that door.
I’ll keep watch for when you’re
(noticing Craig’s tear)
--No! Come on, we’re wasting time.
Sarah looks through the door. Sarah and Emily are getting
ready to open the door as Phoenix prepares himself.
Hey. Be careful...
I always am.
Sarah and Emily quietly open the door and Phoenix quietly
sneaks in, heading for the corner of the wall. Sarah and
Emily close the door.
Phoenix quietly, but quickly moves behind a large pipe, near
the corner of the wall. He eyes the chains and it’s near the
zombies, romaing aimlessly. He can hear their howls and
their hissing noises.
He slowly makes his way closer to the zombies, with his back
against the wall.
Where is he??
She tries looking through the window. Xavier and Juno join
in with her.
Phoenix is making progress, but his foot accidently kicks a
metal pipe on the floor. He stops and a zombie looks to the
direction he is at. It begins to walk toward him.
I can’t see him.
Well he’s not banging on the door
so he must be ok, right?
Anything could be going on in
If he doesn’t come back out in two
minutes I’m going after him myself.
Phoenix backs away, and kneels down in a shadowed area. The
zombie walks near him. Phoenix takes out his pocket knife
and eyes the zombie close to him. The zombie wonders closer
and Phoenix stabs it in the head. He holds the zombie up so
it wouldnt make a noise when it collapses. Phoenix slowly
places the dead zombie down.
He then crawls toward the chains, they’re in plain sight by
the wall. Another zombie wonders off by the door.
See anything yet?
No, I can’t spot him.
I might go in after him.
Are you sure that’s a smart idea?
Might not be a smart idea, but it’s
I see a shadow.
Is it him??
I can’t tell.
Xavier looks through the door window with Sarah. There’s a
shadow near the wall coming closer to the door. Suddenly,
the second floor door opens. Jaxon’s voice is heard.
So remember we have to get up
bright and early tomorrow.
Cuts to Jaxon and Officer Nick and Carlos walking down the
stairs from the second floor.
But me and Officer Nick are on
I’ll have Trevor on watch tomorrow.
Right now we need to do what’s best
for the survivors in the school.
It’s only getting worse out there.
How come Trevor always gets the
easy job? You have me and Carlos on
death row all the time.
Jaxon stops and looks at them.
Trevor and Michael risk their lives
everyday just like you guys do.
I’ve been with Trevor for awhile. I
know I can trust him if anything
happens to the school. You guys are
rookies, keep that in mind.
But for how long?
Until I say otherwise. Enough with
the questions. We have too many
They leave the stairwell on the first floor. Xavier looks up
and sees that the coast is clear.
That was too close...
Tell me about it.
Phoenix grabs the chains, quietly. They make a little sound
which makes a few zombie’s head turn. They wonder off
farther into the distance.
(looking through window)
I think I see him...
Phoenix sees a zombie walking towards the door. Phoenix
quickly moves along the wall, but very quietly.
I think it’s him.
Come on, open the door!
Careful! It might not be him!
Juno opens the door and a zombie is in the door way. As
their about to panic, a chain wraps around the zombie’s
neck. Phoenix breaks the zombies neck and tosses the body
back into the basement.
Oh my god...!! You’re ok!
Quick! The doors!
Sarah closes the doors. Phoenix wraps the chains around the
handles tightly. He checks to see if the door stays shut; it
Dude, are you ok? That was SICK!
Yeah...I’m fine. Atleast this door
is secured. Now we don’t have
anything to worry about...for now
Well...now I can go to sleep
without having to worry about those
Don’t mention it. In the morning or
so what do you guys say we meet
Yeah. That sounds good to me.
Alright...let’s try and get some
They all leave.
