After my long rants about the zombie's image going down the drain, my heart is all warm and fuzzy after the recent zombie attack in Florida and the guy who cut out his entrails awhile back and threw them at a cop. Why am I happy about such horrifying events?
Because people pointed at the face-eating man and said, "Hey look, a zombie!"
They didn't see some rockstar or comedic romance and say, "It's like Zombieland!"
No they saw one of the most gruesome news stories ever and recognized it as a good ol' b-movie style zombie attack. Distastefully so, but a zombie attack nonetheless.
With that said, I've toyed around with a zombie story for quite sometime now, and have decided to give it another go.
The story starts off on a ship porting in Long Brooke, Chase County after a long journey back from Haiti. Under a light rain, four crew members try to enjoy a smoke on the deck, when they realize one of their members is missing. An all-out attack occurs when they find him in a cabin - or what he's become.
All but one man is bitten and torn to shreds. Although bitten, he jumps overboard and swims to the shore. So does the missing crew member.
That's all I'll spoil for now. I'll keep you in the know, especially if you subscribe.
Do you think this sounds interesting?
