DAY OF THE DEAD
FADE IN:
11
EXT. THE EMPTY STREET OF A CITY IN FLORIDA - DAY
No people. A FEW CARS and TRUCKS are parked at odd angles,abandoned. A TITLE FADES IN, one phrase at a time:
FIVE YEARS...
SINCE THE DEAD FIRST WALKED.
22
EXT. ANOTHER EMPTY STREET - DAY
It's AFTERNOON and the sun in bright. We HEAR THE SOUND OFSTRONG WIND. The sub-tropical PALMS bend from the push ofthat lonely sounding WIND and DEBRIS flutters out FROM BEHINDCAMERA (a yellowed sheet from a newspaper, a bit of clothtorn from an American flag) and blows away from us down thestreet.
Suddenly, with A WET, SCRATCHING SOUND, A LARGE ALLIGATORscurries INTO FRAME, stops in a patch of sunlight, and looksaround.
33
EXT. AN ABANDONED ALLEYWAY - DAY
Several MORE GATORS explore. One knocks over A GARBAGE CANand the thing rolls over the pitted pavement making A LOUD,ECHOING SOUND.
44
EXT. AN ABANDONED BANK - DAY
A GATOR crawls out through the open doors of a downtown bank.Some LOOSE BILLS are dragged along under the animal's bellyand tail. The WIND blows the money away.
55
EXT. AN ABANDONED DEPARTMENT STORE - DAY
THE GLASS has been BROKEN OUT on a department store DISPLAYWINDOW. MANNEQUINS lie about in bizarre positions. ANOTHERGATOR crawls through the tableau.
66
EXT. AN ABANDONED INTERSECTION - DAY
GATORS crawl over a '79 CADILLAC. A FEMALE SKELETON sitsslumped over the steering wheel. In the back, A BABY'S BONESare strapped into AN INFANT'S SAFETY SEAT. One of the gatorsTHUMPS its tail maddeningly against the windshield. ANOTHERTITLE APPEARS:
FORT MEYERS, FLORIDA. 1987

EXT. THE ABANDONED ALLEYWAY (SAME AS 3) - DAYCLOSE ON A SECTION OF PAVEMENT. THE SOUND of those sluggishFOOTSTEPS has been growing and now it is QUITE LOUD. ASHADOW appears at the BOTTOM OF FRAME. It gets longer andtakes on the shape of a man.TIGHT ON THE AFTERNOON SUN, blinding in the clear Floridasky. Into the FOREGROUND lurches THE FIGURE which cast theshadow. Sun glare obscures all facial detail until the headjogs into a position directly in front of the fiery ball ofsun... then we see its hideous, dead eyes, its BLUE-GRAYCOLOR, the BLACKENED WOUND where a large portion of jaw hasbeen ripped away.
