h1Z1-the virus

14 May

a viral feel.
shot as a home video of a group of friends trip out to the cabin. one member of the group(brett) is infected with “h1Z1” a virus similar to h1N1(that he did have in reality).
the footage of ride up would be clipped and maybe a timelapse used. I’d like it to seem realistic and homemade at this point. dialog would be improvised for the most part, except for some mentions of details for the story, such as that brett is feeling ill. the first aprox 20 mins of the movie would be the packing and setting up to leave and the ride up, all very casual with no mention of zombies thus far. apon arriving, the group will continue with normal cabin activites with little mention of bretts worsening sickness, and he will be asked to stay the night in the garage, as to keep the others from getting sick to. everything will continue as normal, and people get ready for sleep and the camera is left facing the sliding glass door. cuts to black.
[add in- noises are heard and recorded on the digital voice recorder during the night,something banging and moving. a black insert with time stamp would be seen]

morning comes, and when the camera is turned back on, still facing the sliding door… there is blood smeared all over the glass. what looks like human handprints and footsteps is on the deck and path way leading to the garage. the door to the garage is open. there is no signs of brett, and the blood in unexplained but assumed to be his. everyone searchs the house and surrounding neihbourhood for him and nothing is found. phone calls to his cells phone reveal that he is either somewhere near by or lost it. members of the group(rob, jon and myself) leave, following a trail of blood spatter across the street and into the trees. At this point it is assume bretts sickness progressed during the night and he was vomiting blood and tried to get into the house but left to find help when he couldnt get inside. oddly enough the sliding door wasnt locked. Geo is left at the cabin with ruby, and hears bretts phone ringing from what seems to be inside the garage. she askes ruby to wait outside the garage and goes in to look for brett, still assuming he’s hurt, and not dangerous. inside the garage, she finds bretts body laying behind somethings, partially covered in blood. she phones rob to tell him and as shes walking back out of the garage, brett gets up and bites her on the neck, blood pours out and she looks down at ruby. realizing the danger, she makes a dash towards the door, slamming it (preventing brett from getting to ruby), and ruby is left out side facing the door. a thump against the door is heard and blood starts flooding out from under the door. rob, on the phone with geo at the time, starts running back home, to find ruby and the garage locked from the inside. unsure of the where abouts of geo, rob decides to take ruby down to the lake away from all the blood to keep her calm, while jon and i wait at the cabin to see if anyone will come back or phone and to clean up some of the blood. the door to the garage is forced open, to clean the mess of blood, and immeadiately the zombies attack. the door is slammed on bretts arm( a fake) and its repeatedly closed in the door until the flesh and bone break and a gory stump remains. the cabin is abandoned as jon and i run to meet with rob, and explain the situation. we both try to phone his cell phone but its busy.

the scene cuts to rob walking with ruby by the lake. he’s on the phone trying to get ahold of geo, but with no answer. while hes destracted, ruby wanders farther ahead, and suddenly geo comes out from the trees(having been released from the garage by jon and i) and grabs ruby and goes off into the woods. rob sees them, still unaware of the zombie situation, and chases after shouting their names. from a distance he can see ruby standing in a clearing. her back to him, and as he runs up to her and crouches down to pick her up, she turns around and there is blood all down her face.

scene cuts back to jon and i walking by the lake looking for signs of rob and ruby.
