“I Dream of Zombies”
INT. OFFICE – DAY
RACHEL, 30 something, wearing business attire, is sitting in her office chair. She is looking at some papers that are on her desk.
She looks at her coffee cup and gets up out of her chair. She walks to the door and opens it.
Can somebody please get me some coffee?
Rachel looks out the door and doesn’t see anyone around.
Where the hell is my damn coffee?
She walks out of her office.
INT. OFFICE – CONTINUOUS
Rachel walks towards one the cubicles.
A Zombie is standing in the cubicle. It moans and startles Rachel.
Rachel runs away from the zombie. She runs down
the hall and more zombies come near her.
JACOB, 30 something, business attire, walks in
front of Rachel. He is holding an umbrella and
swings it at the zombies.
Two of the zombies come near them and Jacob stabs one of them in the eye.
The name is Jacob, Milady. Do you
know where the Chaotica Talisman is?
Whatever! I’m getting the hell out of
Rachel screams as more zombies come towards them, moaning. Jacob takes Rachel by the hand and guides her to the nearest door. The zombies do not seem to notice that Jacob and Rachel are gone.
INT. STORE – CONTINUOUS
The store has a lot of cabinets and a food counter. Rachel and Jacob catch their breath and sit down on the floor behind the counter.
What is this about a talisman?
It is said to have the power to destroy
all zombies and turn them to ash. I
have reason to believe that it is here.
Two zombies come into the store and come near the counter. Jacob grabs a glass from the cabinet behind them and throws it at one of the zombies.
Rachel takes some silverware from one of the drawers and throws a few knives at the other zombie.
One of the zombies pushes Rachel into the cabinets and she passes out. The zombie leans over Rachel and Jacob punches it.
The other zombie bites down onto Jacob’s shoulder. Jacob’s eyes turn yellow and his skin turns green. He develops scars all over his body.
Rachel begins to stir and screams when she sees Jacob.
Oh no! Jacob!
Rachel gets up and runs towards the overhead air conditioning vent. She throws a small chair at it and the vent comes open. She jumps into it.
INT. AIR VENT – CONTINUOUS
It is dusty and Rachel can barely see anything. She squints her eyes and sees something shiny in the distance.
No, it can’t be. I thought he was
joking about that talisman.
Rachel looks at the talisman.
CLOSE UP – TALISMAN
The talisman is small and purple. “Destruction” is written on it in Spanish.
BACK TO RACHEL
as she looks at the talisman. She holds the talisman up and she sees a flash emanating from it. She jumps down from the vent and doesn’t see any zombies. All she sees are piles of ash.
Rachel smiles and she sees a white light all around her.
INT. BEDROOM – CONTINUOUS
Rachel is in her bed asleep. She wakes up and looks at her empty hand.
I can’t believe I dreamt that.
She looks over at her clock and gets out of bed.
Time to go to work.
