ONLY ONE MAN UNDERSTANDS THE DANGER…
Vince Carter knew that he was making a bargain for time when he decided not to destroy the eggs. He knew that it was only a matter of time before somebody got infected. He just never expected it to happen so quickly.
HE THOUGHT HE COULD HANDLE THE RISK…
Vince’s boss Paul does not believe them when they return to Genizyz with tales of zombies and dinosaur-like creatures, but he reluctantly sets them up in a lab space. They try to do everything right, taking every precaution possible, but things soon spin out of control. As Vince fights his way through, a suspicion begins to grow in the back of his mind that somebody wants him to fail.
THE DEAD SHALL WALK AGAIN.
Can Vince find his way through before he turns into a zombie? Can he figure out if his suspicions are right?
Herbert looked at me as I looked back at him.
“You okay, Herbert?” I asked, hoping to hear a human response. Herbert just stared right back at me, his eyes glazed over as if in death.
One of the things I distinctly remembered about the freshly converted zombies was that they seemed to be a little more limber and spry.
Perhaps it was just my imagination, I thought, as Herbert took a step forward, blocking my pathway to the stairs.
“Everything okay with you, pal?” I tried again, desperately hoping to get a human response.
Herbert still just stared at me, as if trying to fit me into his frame of reference for life. In his eyes, I was the alien creature, apparently.
One way or another, I had to go down those stairs, if I had to go through Herbert, so be it.
I held the fire extinguisher in front of me, prepared to either push him off the edge or hurl it at him, whichever the circumstances required.
“Easy boy,” I said to Herbert, hoping that I was wrong about him becoming a zombie and that he would call me out for the condescending language.
He only grunted, still staring at me as if he was trying to figure out what to do with me.
Then he roared.
