Without further adieu, may I present:
"World Zombination: Wave I"
A Short Screenplay
EXT. post apocalyptic wasteland. Day.
What was once a thriving metropolis is now heap after heap of scrap metal.
A heavily armed MACHINE GUNNER prepares his weapon.
From the distance, an aimless horde of ZOMBIE DRONES staggers forth.
Many yeards ahead, SCATTERSHOT (F) GUNSLINGER (F) a COMMANDO (F) in leather like armor take aim.
Lock and load!
Rugged and poised, COMMANDER THETA (F) steps in, leading the charge.
The Zombie's approach.
Zombie season is open!
The team moves in, firing upon the Hoarde as they advance dropping many drones, while others stagger on, some tripping over the fallen.
Standing his ground, the Machine Gunner rat-a-tats away, taking down more drones.
The team soon finds itself overwhelmed and surrounded by the massive hoard.
Scattershot peppers the hoard with an erratic spray of bullets. She's approached by a potbellied PUDDLER. She stops, stares in disgust as he unhinges his vile and toothless jaw, spews her with a toxic sludge.
Commando continues to fire away as Gunslinger watches in horror.
Engulfed in sludge, Gunslinger's flesh melts away.
My last mission..
All that remains of Gunsljnger is a skeleton, which collapses to the ground.
The Machine gunner fires away. He's grabbed from below by a set of leather tantecles, belonging to ths gruesomely sultry MISTRESS He struggles to break free but is unable.
Tell my gun, I love her.
The Machine gunner manages to fire off a round into a crashed oil tanker, which exploded, incinerating himself instantly and engulfing the Mistress in flames.
Mistress observes her own smoldering tentacles.
That blew up in my face-
She gasps and collapses. She's trampled by her own horde. Once they've moved on, all that remains is her suit and a pile of ash.
Commander Theta continues to fire, as she is overcome by Zombies, who force her into the massive mountain of rubble and debris.
Her team stops in their tracks; they share a moment of silence.
The Zombies continue to move in.
Greatly outnumbered, the Survivors back off. All is apparently lost, when the Horde is distracted by an of screen voice.
WOMAN'S VOICE (O.S.)
Mockingly swaying in the distance stands a crash test dummy.
The Zombies look to one another with perplexed grunts and groans.
A young woman, MISS DIRECTION steps in, places an arm around the dummy.
After a pause, one Zombie, a track suit clad RUNNER sprints forth.
Fool them once, shame on them.
From his own POV, Runner rapidly approaches the dummy, when suddenly, SLUGGER steps between him and his target. Dressed in a tattered baseball uniform, Slugger chokes up on his steel baseball bat.
Runner's eyes widen as he tries to stop in his tracks; unable, his momentum carries him directly into the Slugger's home run cut, knocking the Runner up and away.
Commando and Scattershot watch with caution.
The Zombies shake off the confusion and begin to descend upon Commando and Scattershot, others break away, head toward Slugger and Miss Direction.
Out of nowhere, the soldiers are joined by a rag tag band of DEFENDERS.
A hammer in each hand, CONTRACTOR (M) clobbers Zombie after Zombie, stunning them long enough for his allies to slay.
Dressed in a Civil War style outfit, MUSKETEER (M) uses an old-fashioned bayoneted rifle as a club, the blade to dismember attacking Drones.
TIMBERBEAST (M) bares a chainsaw, which is fastened to his forearm via bungee.
Several Zombies are struck down by the gunfire from a remote, unseen assailant.
Well concealed and dressed in all black, OVERWATCH looks into the camera, brings an index finger to his lips.
Silence is golden.
The Commando and Scattershot continue to fire upon the hoard as the Musketeer charges on, attacking with his bayonet; seemingly overwhelmed, he disappears amongst the hoard.
Commando and Scattershot look up as a towering but clumsy COLUSSOS enters the fray. The pair fire shot after shot, thinning out the horde, but with little to no effect on the staggering behemoth.
Timberbeast slings his chainsaw down, around, in a roundabout motion, taking out multiple drones, as well as the legs of the Colussos, who slowly begins to fall.
The chainsaw circles back into Timberbeasts grip.
Timberbeast, Scattershot, and Commando retreat as the Colussos' massive body falls slowly down upon them.
Only the lower legs of the Colussos remain standing, the rest falls face first with a thud.
A caterpillar slinks past. The Colussos lifts up his head, lets out a giggle as the caterpillar crawls up his shoulder.
Commando and Scattershot continue to fire away with the Timberbeast slicing Zombies with his chainsaw.
Commando is overcome and dragged to the ground as Scattershot watches in horror. Timberbeast pulls her away. After initial resistance, she reluctantly follows him.
Commando lies face up on the ground.
Her eyes close as The Zombie horde trample her lifeless body.
One Zombie, INFECTOR stops, kneels down. He pulls out a crude medical kit.
I'll help you.
As the Horde overwhelms Defenders become overwhelmed, A well armed. A two legged, Tank Like contraption suddenly emerges from the rubble.
The horde slowly move in upon the contraption.
A closer look reveals the Machine to be piloted by Captain Theta, who opens fire.
Weapons platform hot!
Theta fires away as Zombies stagger to their doom at the hands of the mechanical meat grinder.
Meanwhile, the remaining Defenders gain the upper hand, felling the Hoard at great rates.
Scattershot freezes in her tracks. Her hands tremble.
She finds herself staring into the soulesss eyes her of the zombified Commando.
Before Scattershot can react, the Zombie Commando goes down in a hail of bullets. Scattershot turns:
Near the rubble, dressed in crude, make-shift armor, GUNSMITH (F) fires rapidly using a pair of converted BBQ grills for cannons. She gives a smile and a salute.
Grill's on, kill's on!
The Defenders finish off what's left of the hoard;
They let out a cheer, celebrate their victory. Zoom out, revealing a new horde approaching from the North.
Commander Theta looks on. She's joined by Scattershot, Timberbeast, Miss Direction, Contractor, Slugger, and the remaining defenders, who prepare for another round of battle.
Line 'em up!
