2012. The recently deceased are mysteriously rising from their graves. An emerging group of the living dead have people down-right scared...of losing their jobs. These fresh (and sometimes not so fresh) corpses are not here to eat the living; they have retained their memory of work and need to feed their hunger. With the recent economic crisis and other issues that dominate the news and popular zeitgeist, a new and inexpensive work force has evolved. They work for practically nothing. They don't need bathroom breaks. They don't need health care. They technically don't need food. For the corporation constantly criticized for its lack of compassion and ethics, it is the perfect answer to outsourcing. From blue-collar and white-collar jobs, to film, music and fashion; no one is safe.Everyone is feeling the bite. Where did these zombies come from? How did they evolve right under our noses

I began research on this project in August of 2009 while on production of Bruce Laburuce’s L.A. Zombie in Los Angeles. This was not your typical zombie movie in production. Labruce made a career with films that teeter on a mixture of art and erotica had crossed another road; gay zombie erotica. As an avid horror and zombie film connoisseur, I decided it would be interesting to use this element of the living dead tied to a narrative comedic film that would have satirical aspects of current U.S. political issues such as immigration, healthcare and the economy.
