I like the title. But there better be at least one or two fatal wounds in the actual screenplay. I like titles that give an idea what to expect from the movie, like “Armed Response” or “Snakes on a Plane”.
Well, all zombie bites are fatal and more than one person gets bitten, so I guess in that sense there’s
more than one fatal wound. The main character also has some pretty serious emotional wounds that
have been killing him slowly since long before he got bit.
So when you watch the movie/read this screenplay you already know the main character will die (bit by zombie). Hmmm…American Beauty did that too and it took a bit of the fun away, imo.
Yeah, I thought of that and I think that’s why I added in the finding the daughters angle. Even though
we know he’s doomed from the start he’s still got a very clear goal that hopefully the audience will get

Damn did War of the Worlds use that tagline? That’s kinda funny cause I saw that movie like a
week after coming up with just the basic idea for this movie and I was constantly worried about
being too much like it.
As far as reading the first ten pages, I’ll probly do a quick re-write until I get up to the part that
I posted here a few months ago and just post all of it. I think it’ll be the first twenty or so pages.
