Human Extinction By Dean H.

Olivas Jr

EXT.CITY.DAY ADAM, average size man in a black tank top, black pants, combat boots, and a white bandana, and is running down the the coast of a river in a industrial city. ADAM (V.O.) It’s been five years now since the nuclear attack from the Russians. Adam looks back. ADAM (V.O.) I relive that moment every day in my head. Horde of zombies is chasing him. ADAM (V.O.) Because the mistakes those idiots made has caused everyone’s life to be a living hell. Adam continues to run. Adam stops. ADAM (V.O.) Everyone except for me. Adam turns around slowly. Adam takes a deep breath. Adam raises his right arm, he creates an energy wave from his right hand. Adam closes his eyes and fires the blast at the horde of zombies. Adam collects his thoughts, stares at the explosion, and walks away. INT.HOUSE KITCHEN.NIGHT Adam is sitting at the table talking to LAUREN, regular sized woman in a black top, short brown shorts, knee braces, combat boots and goggles on her head and a kendo stick on her back, who is preparing dinner.

LAUREN You did what you had to do... ADAM Maybe... LAUREN Look, there’s nothing you could do. It’s not your fault. You didn’t ask for this. ADAM I just wish there’s something else I could have done, I’m not a killer Lauren. LAUREN I know... ADAM Why do I get these powers, while everyone else has become a mindless zombie. Lauren walks over to Adam. LAUREN I know you’re struggling with this, but there’s a reason. We may not know it now, but there’s a reason. There’s a reason for everything. ADAM I just hope we find out soon. Before more people get hurt. LAUREN They’re not even people anymore Adam. The human population is extinct. It died five years ago when the missile missed us and landed in the ocean. Adam stands up, and begins walking to another room. He stops in the hallway. ADAM Just because the chemicals changed them from the outside, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a human on the inside. Adam walk out of the room.

INT.HOUSE BED.NIGHT Adam is lying in bed when he has a flashback in his dreams. Adam has a flashback of the nuclear holocaust, missiles falling from the sky. Adam has a flashback of the ATTORNEY GENERAL (larger man is a basic military uniform) talking to the PRESIDENT (older man in suit). SECRETARY OF DEFENSE Sir...the Russians have launched their missiles. PRESIDENT *sigh*...fire back... SECRETARY OF DEFENSE Sir, we have no idea what will come of this. PRESIDENT IT’S THE ONLY DAMN OPTION WE HAVE! Adam wakes up frantically from his nightmare. Adam jumps out of the bed, screaming and throwing things around the room. Lauren here’s Adam screaming and wakes up. LAUREN What’s wrong?! What’s wrong?! Adam calms down a little bit seeing Lauren’s face, still has a very distressed look on his face. LAUREN Adam?! ADAM The dream... LAUREN What dream? ADAM The one that ruined our lives! Lauren stares at Adam, speechless.

ADAM This ends tomorrow. LAUREN What do you mean? ADAM Tomorrow we’re going to the city. Lauren gazes into Adam’s eyes, not knowing what to do. ADAM We’re bring a zombie back here and we’re finding a cure. EXT.OUTSIDE HOUSE.DAY Adam and Lauren walk towards the door to go outside. LAUREN Ready? ADAM Yeah... Lauren puts her goggles on and they both go outside. Adam and Lauren are standing by the door of their house. ADAM Hey Lauren, has anyone ever told you that you look stupid with those goggles on? Lauren hits Adam and they walk towards their blue pick up truck. LAUREN Just because you’ve got special powers and can see in this mess doesn’t mean I can! Adam and Lauren get in the car. Adam starts the car They drive away.

5. EXT.CITY.DAY Adam pulls the car over by some ruins, they’re now in the city. LAUREN So is this the place? ADAM Yes, I spotted a horde over in this area last week. Adam takes the keys out of the ignition and puts them in his pocket. ADAM Now remember, don’t go looking for trouble. If you get in to trouble call me right away. Find one zombie, and we’re out. LAUREN Right! Adam leans in towards Lauren and kisses her. Adam looks at Lauren. ADAM I love you, be safe. We’ll meet back here in an hour. Lauren nods her head in agreement. LAUREN Let’s solve this today. ADAM We will, I promise. Adam and Lauren get out of the truck and go opposite ways. INT.BUILDING RUINS.DAY Adam is exploring the building of ruins he’s in. Adam here’s a noise and stops. He stands in the middle of the room completely still. A zombie charge him full speed. Adam pulls his right arm getting ready to punch. (CONTINUED)

He swings full speed and decapitates the zombie. ADAM (V.O.) Well he won’t be very useful to us. Adam continues his search in the building. He hears another noise, much louder this time. Adam looks to his right and a whole horde of zombies is running down the hall towards him. ADAM YOU’VE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME! Adam gets into a fight position and gets ready to fight. The horde of zombies breaks the door down and try to attack Adam. Adam fight them off with his fists, and energy blasts, one by one. Adam beats all the zombies and claps his hand. Adam gets ready to leave the building when a larger, African, zombie stands up behind him. Adam doesn’t notice it. A kendo stick hits the zombie in the face, knocking it out. Adam turns around and sees Lauren and the zombie on the ground. LAUREN You know, you really shouldn’t turn your back when there’s brain hungry zombies on the loose. ADAM Hmph...thanks. Adam chuckles and then crouches down to examine the zombie that Lauren knocked out. ADAM How long do you think he’ll be out for?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: LAUREN With how hard I hit him, probably a good amount of time. ADAM Let’s load this one up. LAUREN ...what? ADAM Look, that’s what we came her to do, that’s what we’re going to do. Let’s take this one home while he’s out.

Adam and Lauren pick the zombie up and leave the building. EXT.CITY.DAY Adam and Lauren load up the zombie in the back of the truck. Adam and Lauren get in their car and drive away. LAUREN So what are we going to do with it when we get back? ADAM I haven’t thought that far yet. LAUREN Well that’s good to know... ADAM Well, I was thinking, we have tons of medicine back at the house. We can try them all and see if they have any effect. LAUREN Ok, Will Smith. ADAM What? LAUREN The main character from I Am Legend, you’re acting like him. Adam is confused and doesn’t get the reference. The zombie in the back of the truck wakes up. (CONTINUED)

It reaches in from the back of the truck and grabs Adam. Adam, who is driving, swerves and crashes into a parking garage. The car is destroyed. Adam is able to get out of the car to see the damage. He looks in the car and sees Lauren with a piece of plywood through her head. Lauren is dead. Adam falls to his knees in shock. The zombie is stuck under the car and screeches trying to grab Adam. ADAM You...YOU DID THIS! Adam walks over to the zombie and starts beating it up, throwing one punch at a time. Adam’s hands are a bloody mess. He kills the zombie. Adam stands up and turns around, another zombie is behind him, a small teenager. ADAM What the fuck do you want?! I’m sick of this shit! Adam stares at the zombie. ADAM TAKE ME! TAKE ME!!!! The zombie charges Adam and takes a bite out of his arm. ADAM OW! FUCK! Adam falls over. The zombie starts to glow, and seems to be in pain. The zombie falls backwards. The zombie is now glowing completely, a bright white color. A flash occurs and the zombie yells, the zombie has been restored to it’s human state. (CONTINUED)

ADAM What the... Adam walks over to the zombie. The zombie, CHRIS, a teenager with ripped jeans and a white t-shirt, stands up. CHRIS You saved me... ADAM I what? CHRIS You saved me, I don’t know how, but you did. ADAM Explain yourself... CHRIS Listen, I don’t know how, but when I bit you as a zombie, you healed me. Your blood...the second it hit my mouth, I could feel myself being returned to my normal self. Adam has a perplexed look on his face. CHRIS My names Chris. Chris reaches his hand out. Adam extends the offer and gently shakes Chris’ hand, then nods his head to him. ADAM Well Chris it was nice meeting you, but there’s something I have to do. Adam takes off his headband and gives it to Chris. ADAM I made a promise to my friend. I promised her that we would find a way to end this today, and we have. CHRIS Well what are you going to do?

ADAM She told me that everything happens for a reason. For whatever reason when the nuclear waste hit the air, I gained some sort of...powers. CHRIS Wow! That’s awesome, so are you like a super hero?! ADAM I’m no hero kid. But apparently within these powers hid the cure. My blood, is the cure. CHRIS I still don’t understand. ADAM I must go. You take care now my friend. Adam runs away from the parking garage. Adam is now in the middle of the city. Adam stands firmly in the middle of the street and raises his arms. Adam takes a deep breath and fires multiple blasts in the air drawing attention to himself. Adam stops and puts his arms down. 4 hordes of zombies run towards Adam, from each direction. Adam stands and waits for their attack The zombies attack and kill Adam, drinking his blood. A huge glow comes from the area and each zombie is cured.
