-They ought to make the day the time
changes the first day of summer.

-Well, it's eight o'clock
and it's still light.

-A lot of good
the extra daylight does us.

-Now we've still got
a three-hour drive back.

-We're not going to be home
until after midnight.

-Well, if it really bugged you,
Johnny, you wouldn't do it.

-You think I wanna blow Sunday
on a scene like this?

-You know, I figure we're either
gonna have to move mother out here,

-or move the grave into Pittsburgh.
-She can't make
a trip like this.

-I don't know that she can't.
-- Is there any candy left?
- No.

-Look at this thing.
"We still remember. "

-I don't. You know,
I don't even remember what the man I

-Johnny, it takes you five minutes.
-5 minutes to put the wreath on the grave
and 6 hours to drive back and forth.

-Mother wants to remember,
so we trot 200 miles into the count

-and she stays at home.
-Well, we're here, John, all right?
-Radio: Testing... back on...
Ah, ladies and... We're coming back

-on the air after an interruption
due to technical problem...

-There's nothing wrong with the radio.
Must've been the station.

-Which row is it in?
-There's no one around.
-Well, it's late.
If you'd gotten up earlier...

-Oh, look, I already lost
an hour's sleep in the time change.

-I think you complain
just to hear yourself talk.

-There it is.
-I wonder what happened
to the one from last year.

-Each year we spend
good money on these things.

-We come out here, and the
one from last year is gone.

-Well, the flowers die,
-And the caretaker
or somebody takes them away.

-Yeah, a little spit and polish,
-he can clean this up sell it next year.
-Wonder how many times
we bought the same one?

-Hey, come on, Barb,
church was this morning, huh?

-Hey, I mean,
praying's for church, huh? Come on.

-I haven't seen you
in church lately.

-Well, there's not much
sense in my going to church.

-Do you remember one time
when we were small, we were out here?

-It was from right over there.
-I jumped out at you
from behind the tree

-And grandpa got all excited, and
he shook his fist at me, and he said,

-"Boy, you'll be damned to hell. "
-Remember that?
Right over there.

-Well, you used
to really be scared here.

-- Well, you're still afraid.
- Stop it now. I mean it.

-They're coming to get you, Barbra.
-Stop it. You're ignorant.
-They're coming for you, Barbra.
-Stop it. You're acting like a child.
-They're coming for you.
-Look! There comes one of them now.
-- He'll hear you.
- Here he comes. I getting out of here.

-Help me!
-It's all right.
-Don't worry about him.
I can handle him.

-Probably be a lot more of them
as soon as they find out about us.

-Truck is outta gas.
-This pump out here is locked.
Is there a key?

-We can try to get out of here
if we can get some gas. Is there a key?

-I suppose you've tried this.
-Do you live here?
-We've gotta get out of here.
-We have to get where there
are some other people.

-Maybe we better take some food.
-I'll see if I can find some food.
-- What's happening?
- I'll be just a second.

-What's happening?
-Two of them.
-There are two of them out there.
Have you seen any more around here?

-I can take care of those two.
-- I know you're afraid, but we have to...
- I don't know! I don't know!

-What's happening?
-They know we're in here now.
-Don't look at it.
-Get some more lights on in this house.
-Why don't you see if you can find
some wood, some boards,

-something there by the fireplace,
Something we can nail this place up?

-Well, goddamn...
-Look. I know you're afraid.
I'm afraid too.

-But we have to try
to board the house up together.

-Now, I'm going to board up the windows
and the doors. Do you understand?

-We'll be all right here.
-We'll be all right till someone comes to
rescue us. But we have to work together.

-You'll have to help me.
-Now I want you to go in and get
some wood so I can board the place up.

-They're not that strong.
-Here, I want you to pick out some nails.
Pick out the biggest ones you can find.

-There, this room looks pretty secure.
-If we have to, we can run in here
and board up the doors.

-Won't be long before those things'll
be back, pounding their way in here.

-They're afraid now.
-They're afraid of fire.
I found that out.

-You know a place back down the road
called Beekman's? Beekman's diner?

-Anyhow, that's where I found
that truck I have out there.

-There's a radio in the truck.
-I had jumped in to listen to it,
-When a big gasoline truck came
screaming right across the road.

-Well, there must have been
10-15 of those things chasing after it.

-Grabbing and holding on.
-Now, I didn't see them at first.
-I could just see that the truck
was moving in a funny way.

-And those things
were catching up to it.

-Truck went
right across the road.

-Slammed on my brakes to keep
from hitting it myself.

-It went right through
the guard rail.

-I guess... I guess the driver
must have cut off the road,

-into that gas station
by Beekman's diner.

-It went right through the billboard.
Ripped over a gas pump,

-and never stopped moving.
-By now it's like a moving bonfire.
-Didn't know if the truck
was going to explode or what.

-I can still hear the man, screaming.
-This thing is
just backing away from it.

-I look back at the diner to see
-If there was anyone there
who could help me.

-That was when I noticed that
-The entire place
had been encircled.

-Wasn't a sign of life left, except...
-by now, there were no more screams.
-I realized that...
-I was alone.
-With 50 or 60 of those things.
-Just standing there,
-staring at me.
-I started to drive. I...
-Just plowed right through them.
-They didn't move.
-They didn't run, or...
Just stood there, staring at me.

-Just wanted to crush them.
Scattered through the air, like bugs.

-We were riding in the cemetery.
-Johnny and me.
-We... we came to put a wreath
on my father's grave.

-Johnny and...
and he said,

-"Can I have some candy, Barbra?"
-And we didn't have any.
-Oh, it's hot in here.
-And he said, "Oh, it's late. "
-"Why did we start so late?"
-And I said, "Johnny,
-"if you'd gotten up earlier,
-"we wouldn't be late. "
-Johnny asked me if I were afraid.
-And I said, "I'm not afraid, Johnny. "
-And then this man
started walking up the road.

-He came slowly, and Johnny
kept teasing me and saying,

-"He's coming to get you, Barbra. "
-And I laughed at him, and said,
"Johnny, stop it. "

-And then Johnny ran away.
-And I went up to this man,
-and I was going to apologize,
-Why don't you just keep calm?
-And I looked up,
and I said, "Good eve... "

-And he grabbed me!
-He grabbed me!
And he ripped at me!

-He held me and he ripped
at my clothes!

-I think you should just calm down.
-Oh, I screamed,
"Johnny! Johnny, help me! Oh, help me!"

-And he wouldn't let me go.
He ripped...

-And then Johnny came and he ran
-And he... he fought this man,
-And I got so afraid I ran.
-I ran... I ran...
-And Johnny didn't come.
-We've got...
we have to wait for Johnny.

-Maybe... we'd better go out
and get him.

-We have to go out and get Johnny.
-He's out there.
-Please, don't you hear me?
We've got to go out and get him.

We have got to go get Johnny!

-Please help me!
-Look, don't you know what's going on out
there? This is no Sunday school picnic.

-Don't you understand?
My brother is alone.

-- Your brother is dead.
- No! My brother is not dead!

-Radio: Because of the obvious threat
to untold numbers of citizens,

-and because of the crisis
which is even now developing,

-this radio station will remain
on the air, day and night.

-This station and hundreds of other
radio and TV stations

-throughout this part of the country
are pooling their resources

-Through an emergency network hookup
to keep you informed of all developments.

-At this hour, we repeat,
these are the facts as we know them.

-There is an epidemic of mass murde
-being committed by a virtual army
of unidentified assassins.

-The murders are taking place
in villages, cities,

-Rural homes and suburbs with no apparent
pattern or reason for the slayings.

-It seems to be a sudden,
general explosion of mass homicide.

-We have some descriptions
of the assassins.

-Eyewitnesses say they are
ordinary looking people.

-Some say they appear to be
in a kind of trance.

-Others describe them as being...
-So, at this point there is
no really authentic way for us

-to say who or what to look for
and guard yourself against.

-...reaction of
law enforcement officials

-is one of complete
bewilderment at this hour.

-Police, sheriffs' deputies,
and emergency ambulances

-are literally deluged
with calls for help

-The scene can best be described
as mayhem.

-Mayors of Pittsburgh,
Philadelphia, and Miami,

-Along with the governors of several
eastern and midwestern states

-have indicated the national guard
may be mobilized at any moment,

-but that has not happened as yet.
-The only advice our reporters have been
able to get from official sources

-is for private citizens to stay
in their homes behind locked doors.

-Do not venture outside,
for any reason,

-until the nature of this crisis
has been determined

-and until we can advise
what course of action to take.

-Keep listening to radio and TV
-for any special instructions
as this crisis develops further.

-Thousands of office and factory
workers are being urged

-to stay at their places of employment,
-not to make any attempt
to get to their homes.

-However, in spite of this
urging and warning,

-streets and highways are packed
with frantic people

-trying to reach their families,
or apparently to flee just anywhere.

-Repeat: The safest course of action at
this time is simply to stay where you...

-Ladies and gentlemen,
we've just received word

-that the president has called
a meeting of his cabinet

-to deal with
the sudden epidemic of murde

-which has seized the eastern
third of this nation.

-The meeting is scheduled
to convene within the hour.

-Members of the presidential
cabinet will be joined

-by officials of the FBI and the joint
chiefs behind closed doors.

-A White House spokesman,
in announcing this conference,

-says there will be
an official announcement

-as soon as possible
following that meeting.

-This is the latest dispatch
just received in our newsroom.

-Latest word also from national
press services in Washington, D.C.,

-that the emergency presidential
conference which we've just mentioned

-Will include high-ranking scientists
from NASA.

-Radio and TV stations across
the eastern part of the country

-including the one
to which you are listening

-have joined their facilities
in an emergency network

-to bring you this news
as it develops.

-We urge you to stay tuned
to radio and TV

-and to stay indoors at all costs.
-Late reports
reaching this newsroom

-tell of frightened people
seeking refuge

-in churches, schools
and government buildings.

-Demanding shelter
and protection

-from the wholesale murder
which apparently

-is engulfing
much of the nation.

-Law enforcement officials
are at a loss to explain or,

-even at this hour, even to theorize
-about the reasons
for this wave of murder...

-Chief T.K. Dunmore of Camden, North
Carolina, is quoted as saying, quote,

-"Tell the people, for God's sake,
to get off the streets. "

-"Tell 'em to go home and lock
their doors and windows up tight. "

-"We don't know what kind of murder-happy
characters we have here. " End quote.

-That's chief Dunmore of Camden,
North Carolina.

-So far the only descriptions,
the only clues,

-anyone has of the killers
come from frightened witnesses.

-These eyewitness accounts
variously describe

-the murderers
as "ordinary looking people,"

-"Misshapen monsters. "
-"People who look
like they're in a trance. "

-And "things that look like
people but act like animals. "

-Some eyewitnesses tell
of seeing victims

-who look as though
they had been torn apart.

-This whole ghastly story
began developing two days ago

-with the report of the slaying
of a family of seven...

-Since then, reports
of some senseless killings

-began snowballing
in a reign of terro

-which has hopscotched...
-...keep track of
the murder reports

-by the placing of markers on a map
-seem to indicate
a general spreading

-from the extreme southeastern
and states north and west.

-Our newsmen,
who have been on the telephone

-talking with officials
of other cities

-have determined that none
of this kind of mass murde

-has yet been reported west of
the Mississippi river,

-except in the extreme
southeastern portion of Texas.

-Similar killings
have been reported

-around the Houston
and Galveston areas

-but nothing like the...
-I found a gun
and some bullets out there.

-Oh, and these.
-This place is boarded up
pretty solid now.

-We ought to be all right here
for a while.

-We have a gun and bullets,
-Food and the radio,
-Sooner or later, someone's bound
to come and get us out.

-So again, we join
with law enforcement agencies

-in urging you
to seek shelter in a building.

-Lock the doors and windows

-Hey, that's us.
We're doing all right.

-Be cautious
of any suspicious strangers,

-and keep tuned to your
radio and television

-for survival instructions
-and further details
of this continuing story.

-Look, I don't know
if you're hearing me.

-But I'm going upstairs now.
-If anything should try to break in,
I can hear it from up there.

-I'll be down to take care of it.
-Everything is all right for now.
-I'll be back to reinforce
the windows and doors later.

-But you'll be all right
for now, ok?

-Radio: Civil defense
officials in Cumberland

-have told newsmen
that murder victims

-show evidence of having been
partially devour by their murderers.

-Consistent reports from witnesses
to the effect that people

-who acted
as though they were in a kind of trance

-were killing and eating
their victims.

-Prompted authorities to examine
the bodies of some of the victims.

-Medical authorities in Cumberland
have concluded that in all cases

-the killers are eating the flesh
of the people they murdered.

-Repeating this latest bulletin just
received moments ago from Cumberland.

-Civil defense authorities
have told newsmen

-that murder victims show evidence
-of having been partially
devoured by their murderers.

-Medical examination of victims' bodies
shows conclusively that

-the killers are eating the flesh
of the people they kill.

-And so this incredible story
becomes more ghastly with each report.

-It's difficult to imagine
such a thing actually happening

-but these are the reports we have been
receiving and passing on to you,

-Reports which have been verified
as completely as is possible

-in this confused situation.
-- Hold it!
- Don't shoot. We're from town.

-A radio!
-Radio: The Butler county sheriff
has verified that reports

-of murder victims being partially
eaten by their slayers is true.

-How long you guys been down there?
I could've used some help up here.

-That's the cellar.
It's the safest place.

-You mean you didn't hear the
racket we were making up here?

-How were we supposed to know
what was going on?

-Could've been those things
for all we knew.

-That girl was screaming.
-Surely you must know what
a girl screaming sounds like.

-Those things don't make any noise.
-Anybody would know
somebody needed help.

-Look, it's kind of hard to hear
what's going on from down there.

-We thought we could hear screams,
but for all we knew,

-that could have meant those things
were in the house after her.

-- And you wouldn't come up and help?
- Well, if there were more...

-The racket sounded like the
place was being ripped apart.

-How were we supposed to know
what was going on?

-Now wait a minute.
-You just got finished saying you
couldn't hear it from down there.

-Now you say it sounded like the
place was being ripped apart.

-It would be nice if you'd get
your story straight, man.

-All right, now you tell me.
-I'm not going to take that kind of a
chance when we've got a safe place.

-We luck into a safe place,
and you're telling us

-we've gotta risk our lives just because
somebody might need help, huh?

-- Yeah. Something like that.
- All right, why don't we settle this...

-Look, mister!
-We came up, ok? We're here.
-Now I suggest
we all go back downstairs

-before any of those things
find out we're in here.

-They can't get in here.
-You got the whole place boarded up?
-Yeah, most of it.
-All but a few spots upstairs.
They won't be hard to fix.

-You are insane.
The cellar's the safest place.

-I'm telling you,
they can't get in here.

-And I'm telling you, those
things turned over our car.

-We were damned lucky
to get away at all.

-Now you tell me those... things can't
get through this lousy pile of wood?

-His wife and kid's downstairs.
The kid's hurt.

-Well, I still think
we're better off up here.

-We could strengthen
everything up, Mr. Cooper.

-With all of us working, we could
fix this place up in no time.

-We have everything we need up here.
-We can take all that stuff
downstairs with us.

-Man, you're really crazy,
you know that?

-You got a million windows
up here.

-All these windows.
You're gonna...

-You're gonna make 'em strong enough
to keep these things out, huh?

-I told you, those things
don't have any strength.

-I smashed three of them
and pushed another one out the door.

-Did you hear me, what I told you?
They turned over our car.

-Oh hell,
any good five men can do that.

-That's my point...
-Only there's not going to be
five, or even ten.

-There's gonna be twenty, thirty,
maybe a hundred of those things.

-And as soon as they know we're here,
-this place
is gonna be crawling with them.

-Well, if there're that many, they'll
probably get us wherever we are.

-Look, the cellar.
-The cellar.
There's only one door, right?

-Just one door.
That's all we have to protect.

-Tom and I fixed it so it locks
and boards from the inside.

-But up here, all these windows,
-Why, we'd never know where
they were gonna hit us next.

-You got a point, Mr. Cooper.
-But down in the cellar,
there's no place to run to.

-I mean, if they did get in, there'd be
no back exit. We'd be done for.

-We can get out of here
if we have to.

-And we got windows
to see what's going on outside.

-But down there, with no windows,
-if a rescue party did come,
we wouldn't even know it.

-But the cellar
is the strongest place.

-The cellar is a death trap.
-I don't know, Mr. Cooper.
I think he's right.

-You know how many's out there?
-I don't know,
I figure maybe six or seven.

-Look. You two can do
whatever you like.

-I'm going back down to the cellar
and you better decide,

-'cause I'm gonna board up that door,
-and I'm not gonna unlock it
again no matter what happens.

-Now wait a minute, Mr. Cooper.
-No, I'm not gonna wait! I've made
my decision, now you make yours.

-Now wait a minute!
Let's think about this.

-We can make it to the cellar
if we have to.

-And if we do decide to stay down there,
We'll need some things from up here.

-So let's at least
consider this a while.

-If you box yourself in the cella
-and those things get in
the house, you've had it.

-At least up here,
you have a fighting chance.

-Yeah, looks like about
eight or ten of them now.

-That's more than there were.
There're a lot out back, too.

Harry, what's happening?

-It's all right!
-Now take it.
-We've gotta fix these boards.
-You're crazy!
-Those things are gonna be at every
window and door in this place!

-We've got to get down
into the cellar.

-Go down into your damn cellar
and get out of here!

-- I'm... I'm taking the girl with me.
- You leave her here.

-Keep your hands off her,
and everything else that's up here too.

-Because if I stay up here,
I'm fighting for everything up here,

-and the radio and the food is
part of what I'm fighting for.

-Now if you're going down
in the cellar, get.

-The man's insane.
He's insane.

-We've... we've got to have food
down there. We've got a right.

-- This your house?
- We've got a right.

-You going down there with him?
-Yes or no? This is your last chance.
No beating around the bush.

-Listen, I got a kid down there.
-She can't possib...
I couldn't bring her up here.

-She can't possibly take
all the racket from those things

-smashing through the windows.
-Well, you're her father.
-If you're stupid enough to go die
in that trap, that's your business.

-However, I am not stupid enough
to follow you.

-It is tough for the kid
that her old man is so stupid.

-Now, get the hell down
in the cellar.

-You can be the boss down there.
I'm boss up here.

-You bastards!
-You know, I won't open
this door again. I mean it.

-- Mr. Cooper, with your help...
- With my help.

-Let him go, man.
His mind is made up.

-Wait a minute.
-Judy? Come on up here, honey.
-You're gonna let them
get her too, huh?

-It's all right, honey.
Go ahead.

-If we stick together, man,
we can fix it up real good.

-There's lots of places
we can run to up here.

-Mr. Cooper?
We'd all be a lot better off

-if all three of us were working together.
Hey, kid.

-He's wrong, you know.
-I'm not boxing myself in
down there.

-Well, we're safe now.
It's boarded up tight.

-What about Tom and Judy?
-They wanna stay up there.
Let 'em.

-There are... two other people upstairs.
A man and a girl.

-We heard the screaming.
-Yeah, but I didn't know
who they were,

-and I wasn't about to take
any unnecessary chances.

-Of course not, Harry.
-- Is she all right?
- I don't know what it is.

-She feels warm.
Maybe it's shock.

-Where'd you get the bandage?
-Some laundry in the basket.
I tore a sheet.

-Let them stay upstairs.
-Let them.
-Too many ways those monsters
can get in up there.

-We'll see who's right.
-We'll see, when they come begging me
to let them in down here.

-- That's important, isn't it?
- What?

-To be right.
Everybody else to be wrong.

-What do you mean by that?
-Does anyone up there
know why we're being attacked?

-Whatever it is,
it isn't just happening here.

-It's some kind of mass murder.
It's going on everywhere.

-- The radio said to stay inside...
- Radio?

-Radio, upstairs.
I heard the news bulletin.

-There's a radio upstairs
and you boarded us in down here?

-- I know what I'm doing.
- What did it say?

-Nothing! Nothing.
They don't know anything yet.

-The... there's mass murder
everywhere, and

-people are supposed to
look for a safe place to hide.

-Take the boards
off that door.

-We are staying down here, Helen.
-Harry, that radio is at least
some kind of communication.

-If the authorities know
what's happening,

-Well, they'll send people for us,
or they'll tell us what to do.

-How are we going to know
what's going on,

-if we lock ourselves in this dungeon?
-We may not enjoy living together...
-But dying together isn't
going to solve anything.

-Those people
aren't our enemies.

-Mr. Cooper!
-Mr. Cooper? They found
a television set upstairs.

-Let's go up.
-If Judy would come downstairs
for a few minutes,

-Harry and I
could come upstairs.

-Ok. Yeah. Right away.
-Will you do it?
-Do I have to?
-Look, honey. Nothing's gonna get done
with them down there and us up here.

-- Do this. For me.
- Ok.

-Ok, open up.
-I'll take good care of her, Helen.
-She's all I have.
-Why don't you go upstairs now?
-Her brother was killed.
-Hey... give me
a hand with this thing.

-I gotta go help Ben
with the television.

-Don't be afraid of me.
-I'm Helen Cooper. Harry's wife.
-This place is ridiculous.
Look at this.

-There's a million weak spots up here.
-Give me one of those.
-Her brother was killed.
-And they talk about these windows.
-I can't see a damned thing.
-There could be 15 million of
those things out there.

-That's how much good
these windows are.

-Why don't you do something
to help somebody?

-Here, I have it. Drag a couple
of those chairs together.

-There's a socket over here.
-Now, you'd better watch this and try
to understand what's going on.

-I don't want anyone's life
on my hands.

-Is there anything
I can do to help?

-I don't want to hear any more
from you, mister.

-If you stay up here,
you take orders from me!

-And that includes
leaving the girl alone.

-It's on! It's on!
-There's no sound.
-Play with the rabbit ears.
incredible as they seem,
-are not the results
of mass hysteria.
-"Mass hysteria. " What do they think,
we're imagining all this?

-Shut up.
-In all parts of the country.
-The wave of murder which is sweeping
the eastern third of the nation

-is being committed by creatures
-who feast upon the flesh
of their victims.

-First eyewitness accounts
of this grisly development

-came from people who were understandably
frightened and almost incoherent.

-Officials and newsmen
at first discounted

-those eyewitness descriptions
as being beyond belief.

-However, the reports persisted.
-Medical examinations
of some of the victims

-bore out the fact that they
had been partially devoured.

-I think we have
some late word just arriving

-and we interrupt
to bring this to you.

-This is the latest disclosure in a report
-from National civil defense
headquarters in Washington.

-It has been established
that persons who have recently died

-have been returning to life
and committing acts of murder.

-A widespread investigation of reports
from funeral homes, morgues & hospitals

-has concluded that the unburied dead
are coming back to life

-and seeking human victims.
-It's hard for us here to believe
what we're reporting to you,

-but it does seem to be a fact.
-When this emergency first began,
-radio and television was
advising people to stay inside,

-behind locked doors, for safety.
-Well, that situation
has now changed.

-We're able to report a definite
course of action for you.

-Civil defense machinery has been
organized to provide

-rescue stations with food, shelter,
-medical treatment and protection
by armed National Guardsmen.

-Stay tuned to the broadcasting
stations in your local area

-for this list of rescue stations.
-This list will be repeated
throughout our news coverage.

-Look for the name of the rescue
station nearest you,

-and make your way to that
location as soon as possible.

-So we have that truck. If we can get
some gas, we can get outta here.

-- There's a pump out by the shed.
- I know. That's why I pulled in here.

-But it's locked.
-...called this afternoon
by the president.

-Since convening, this conference
of the presidential cabinet,

-The FBI, the joint chiefs of staff,
the CIA

-has not produced
any public information.

-Why are space experts
being consulted

-about an earthbound emergency?
-So far, all the betting
on the answer to that question

-centers on the recent explorer
satellite shot to Venus.

-That satellite, you recall,
started back to Earth,

-but never got here.
-That's the space vehicle
which orbited Venus

-and then was purposely
destroyed by NASA,

-when scientists discovered
it was carrying

-a mysterious,
high-level radiation with it.

-Could that radiation
be somehow responsible

-for the wholesale murders
we're now suffering?

-Newsman Don Quinn in Washington
-has posed those questions.
-It's obvious. Our best move is
to try to get out of here.

-How're you gonna get
over to that pump?

-You're coming from a meeting regarding
the explosion of the Venus probe,

-is that right?
-Yes, yes, that was the subject
of the meeting.

-Do you feel there is a connection
between this and the phenomenon...

-There's a definite connection.
A definite connection.

-In other words, you feel that the
radiation on the Venus probe is enough

-to cause these mutations?
-It was a very high
degree of radiation.

-Well, just a minute. I'm not sure
that that's certain at all.

-I don't think that has been...
It's the only logical explanation

-that we have at this time.
-In other words, it is the military's
viewpoint that this...

-the radiation is not
the cause of the mutation.

-I can't speak for the entire military
at this time, gentlemen.

-I must disagree
with these gentlemen presently,

-until we, until this
is irrefutably proved.

-Everything is being done
that can be done.

-We'll have to hurry
for our next meeting.

-Professor, you feel that there is
a definite connection between...

-A definite connection as far as
Dr. Keller and myself...

-Doctor, please. I thought we decided
that is not proved yet.

-Was it... was the satellite...
-- When the satellite was exploded...
- It was an unusual amount of radiation,

-enough to cause mutation
under certain circumstances.

-Could have happened
to have a bearing on it.

-It does seem to have a bearing on it.
-Will there be a reply for the...
-- There will be a reply?
- Yes.

-Later this afternoon?
-There will be
a report this afternoon.

-Perhaps there will be
a report later...

-Will you close the window?
-We are doing everything possible
to solve the problem.

-We've heard all we need to know.
We have to try to get out of here.

-He said the rescue stations have
doctors and medical supplies.

-If we can get Karen there,
we can get help for her.

-Willard. I saw a sign.
That said Willard.

-It's only about 17 miles from here.
-You know this area.
Are you from around here?

-Judy and I are both from around here.
-We were on our way
to the lake to go swimming.

-Judy had a radio, and we heard
the first reports about this.

-So we knew the old house
was here and we came in,

-And found the lady upstairs, dead.
-Then these other people came.
We went down into the basement

-and put a bar across the door,
and it is pretty strong.

-How could we possibly
get away from here?

-We've got a sick child, two women,
one woman out of her head,

-three men, and the place is
surrounded with these things.

-For NASA.
Dr. Grimes, your entire staff, I know,

-has been working very hard
to find some solution

-to these things that are happening.
-Do you have any answers at this time?
-Yes, we have some answers.
But first let me stress the importance

-of seeking medical attention for anyone
who's been injured in any way.

-We don't know yet what complications
might result from such injuries.

-How bad has your kid been hurt?
-Look. You go down there and tell...

-Yeah, you tell Judy to come up here
and you stay with the kid, all right?

-Destructive action taken
with regard to the Venus probe.

-In the cold room at the university,
we had a cadaver.

-A cadaver from which all four limbs
had been amputated.

-Sometime early this morning,
-it opened its eyes
and began to move its trunk.

-It was dead, but it opened its eyes
and tried to move.

-They want you upstairs.
-- Did she ask for me?
- She hasn't said anything.

-I don't understand.
-Baby? It's mommy.
-I hurt.
-I'll come back down as soon as
I find out what they want.

-Thank you, Judy.
-The bodies should be disposed of
at once, preferably by cremation.

-Well, how long after death, then,
does the body become reactivated?

-- It's only a matter of minutes.
- Minutes?

-That doesn't give people time
to make arrangements...

-No, you're right. It doesn't give them
time to make funeral arrangements.

-The bodies must be carried
to the street and burned.

-They must be burned immediately.
Soak them with gasoline and burn them.

-The bereaved will have to forgo
the dubious comforts

-that a funeral service will give.
-They're just dead flesh.
And dangerous.

-Judy, I need you to find
some bedspreads or sheets

-to tear up into small strips, ok?
-- Is there a fruit cellar here?
- Yes.

-We need some bottles or jars
-to make Molotov cocktails to hold
them off while we try to escape.

-Hey! There's a big can
of kerosene down there.

-- I'll see what I can find.
- I'll look for the bottles.

-There's a big key ring down there.
-There may be a key
to the gas pump on it.

-I'll check.
-We can toss the cocktails
from a window upstairs.

-Meantime, some of us can go out
and try to get the gas,

-then we can come back
for the rest of the people.

-But that'll leave
a door open someplace.

-Yeah, that's right.
It better be this door.

-It's closer to the truck.
-Before we go out, we'll put
some supplies behind the cellar door.

-While we're gone, the rest of you
can hole up in there.

-I found some fruit jars
in the cellar.

-And there's a key on here that's
labeled for the gas pump out back.

-I'm not really that used to the truck.
I found it abandoned.

-I can handle the truck,
no sweat.

-You're it, then.
You and I'll go.

-We'll put whatever lumber we find
behind the cellar door.

-You can go upstairs and toss
the cocktails from a window.

-Tom, you and I will have to
unboard this door.

-After you toss the cocktails,
-you hustle back down here
and lock this door.

-It's no good to board it up because
we'll have to get back in quickly.

-After we get the gas
and get back into the house,

-then we'll worry about getting
everybody into the truck.

-Now, let's move it.
-No place to flee for safety,
except for the rescue stations

-which have been set up.
-Indications are that
before this emergency is over,

-we will need many, many more
such rescue stations.

-You always have a smile for me.
-How can you smile like that
all the time?

-How many do you have done?
-Come on, honey, we gotta move.
-Tom, are you sure about the phone?
-The phone is dead out.
All you get is a recorded message.

-If I could only call the folks. They're
going to be so worried about us.

-Everything'll be all right.
-As soon as we get to Willard, we'll
call them. They might even be there.

-I know.
-Tom... Are you sure we're doing
the right thing, Tom?

-- What, about getting outta here?
- Yeah.

-Well, the television said
that's the right thing to do.

-We've got to get
to a rescue station.

-I don't know.
-Come on. You're starting
to sound like Mr. Cooper now.

-But why do you have to go out there?
-Look, I know how to handle that truck.
And I can handle the pump.

-Ben doesn't know anything
about that stuff.

-But we're safe in here.
-For how long, honey?
We're safe now.

-But there's gonna be more
and more of those things.

-I know.
I know all that.

-Listen. Remember when
we had the big flood?

-Remember how difficult it was for us to
convince you that it was right to leave?

-Remember? Remember we had
to go to Willard then?

-This isn't a passing thing,

-It... it's not like
just a wind passing through.

-We've got to do something,
and fast.

-I just don't want you
to go out there, that's all.

-Hey... smile, honey.
-Where's that big smile for me?
-You sure are
no use at all, are you?

-We've got work to do, honey.
And you... you...

-We better get her downstairs.
-We have to go downstairs now, Barbra.
-She's right. You have
to go downstairs now.

-Just for a little while,
until we get back.

-- Then we can all leave.
- Oh, I'd like to leave. Yes.

-- Good luck.
- Yeah.

-- You ready upstairs?
- Yeah.

-Ok, toss 'em!
-Go ahead! Go on!
-I'm going with him!
-Get back in the cellar!
It's too late. Too late!

-Well, is she coming?
Come on.

-Get in!
-- Come on!
- This key won't work.

-Watch it.
-Watch the torch!
-We've gotta get away from the pump!
-Hang on!
-Stop! I'm telling you guys
to get outta the truck!

-Let's get outta here!
-Come on, come on!
-My jacket's caught.
-Let me in!
-I ought to drag you out there
and feed you to those things.

-Isn't it three o'clock yet?
-There's supposed to be another
broadcast at three o'clock.

-Ten minutes.
-Oh. Only ten more minutes?
-We don't have very long to wait.
-We can leave.
-Or we better leave soon.
-It's ten minutes to three.
-You know anything
about this area at all?

-I mean,
is Willard the nearest town?

-I don't know.
-We were...
-Just trying to get
to a motel before dark.

-You said those things
turned your car over.

-You think we can get it back on
its wheels and drive it? Where is it?

-Seems like it was pretty far away.
-Seems like we ran.
-Forget it.
It's at least a mile.

-Johnny has the keys.
-You're going to carry
that child a mile?

-Through that army
of things out there?

-I can carry the kid.
-What's wrong with her?
How'd she get hurt?

-- One of those things grabbed her.
- Bit her on the arm.

-What's wrong?
-Who knows what kind of disease
those things carry?

-- Is she conscious?
- Barely.

-She can't walk.
She's too weak.

-Well, one of us could try
to get to the car.

-You gonna turn it over
by yourself?

-You can't start the car.
Johnny has the keys.

-You have a car?
Where? Where is it?

-- You won't be able to start it.
- Yeah. I know. But where is it?

-Good lord.
-At this hour, they report the level
of the mysterious radiation

-continues to increase steadily.
-So long as this situation remains,
-government spokesmen warn
that dead bodies

-will continue to be transformed
into the flesh-eating ghouls.

-All persons who die during
this crisis, from whatever cause,

-will come back to life
to seek human victims.

-Unless their bodies are
first disposed of by cremation.

-Our News cameras
have just returned

-from covering such a search and
destroy operation against the ghouls.

-This one conducted
by sheriff Conan McClellan

-in Butler County, Pennsylvania.
-So now let's go
to that film report.

-All law enforcement agencies
and the military

-have been organized to search out
and destroy the marauding ghouls.

-The survival command center
at the Pentagon

-has disclosed
that a ghoul can be killed

-by a shot in the head
or a heavy blow to the skull.

-Officials are quoted as explaining
-that since the brain of a ghoul has
been activated by the radiation,

-the plan is, kill the brain
and you kill the ghoul.

-- Want anything from the supply wagon?
- No, we're all right.

-Hey, Cass, put that thing
all the way in the fire.

-- We don't want it getting up again.
- All right, I gotcha.

-Chief McClellan,
how's everything going?

-Oh, things aren't going too bad.
Men are taking it pretty good.

-You want to get on the other side
of the road over there.

-Chief, do you think we'll be
able to defeat these things?

-Well, we killed 19 of them
today, right in this area.

-Those last three we caught trying to
claw their way into an abandoned shed.

-They must have thought somebody
was in there. There wasn't, though.

-We heard 'em making all kind of noise.
-We came over and beat 'em off,
blasted 'em down.

-Chief, as soon as you're finished,
can I see you here?

-Yeah, ok.
-Chief, if I were surrounded
by six or eight of these things,

-would I stand a chance with them?
-Well, there's no problem. If you
had a gun, shoot 'em in the head.

-That's a sure way to kill 'em.
-If you don't, get yourself
a club or a torch.

-Beat 'em or burn 'em.
They go up pretty easy.

-Well, chief McClellan,
how long do you think it'll take

-until you get the situation
under control?

-Well, that's pretty hard to say. We
don't know how many of 'em there are.

-We know when we find 'em,
we can kill 'em.

-Are they slow-moving, chief?
-Yeah, they're dead.
They're all messed up.

-Well, in time, would you say you'd be
able to wrap this up in 24 hours?

-Well, we don't really know.
-We know we'll be into it most of the
night, probably into the early morning.

-We're working our way toward Willard
-and we'll team up with the
National Guard over there,

-and then we'll be able
to give a more definite view.

-Thank you very much,
chief McClellan.

-This is Bill Cardille,
WIC-TV 11 news.

-Thank you, Bill, for that report.
-Official spokesmen
declined to speculate

-just how long it may
take to kill off all the flesh-eaters

-so long as the heavy ra...
-Is the fuse box in the cellar?
-I don't know. I...
-Is... isn't the fuse...
-The power lines are down.
I have to get that gun.

-Haven't you had enough?
-Two people are dead already,
on account of that guy.

-Take a look out that window.
Look at...

-Get over here, man!
-Come on!
-Go ahead. Go ahead.
You wanna stay up here now?

-Helen, get in the cellar.
-Get in the cellar now!

-Oh, baby.
-No... no...
No! Johnny!

-Somebody help me.
-Hey, Vince, Bill,
-you wanna get about four
or five men and a couple dogs?

-There's a house over here behind those
trees. We wanna go check it out.

-You still here, Bill?
-Yeah, chief,
we're going to stay with it

-till we meet up
with the National Guard.

-- Where'd you get the coffee?
- One of the volunteers.

-- You're doing all the work, take it.
Thank you.

-We should be wrapped up here.
About three or four more hours,

-we'll probably get into Willard's end.
-I guess you can go over there
and meet the national guard.

-Nick, you and the rest
of these men wanna come with me?

-Bill, I'm checking the office
to see what's happening.

-All right, Steve, tell 'em
we're going to stay with it

-and everything appears
to be under control.

-They need you down there
by the barn.

-You guys can follow the wagon down.
-I only need a few men
to check out the house.

-- Somebody had a cookout here, Vince.
- Yeah, sure looks like it, Con.

-He's a dead one.
Get up here!

-Nick! Tony! Steve!
-You wanna get out in that
field and build me a bonfire?

-You. Drag that out of here
and throw it on the fire.

-Nothing down here.
-All right. Go ahead down
and give 'em a hand.

-Let's go check out the house.
-There's something there.
I heard a noise.

-All right, Vince. Hit him in the head.
Right between the eyes.

-Good shot. Ok, he's dead.
Let's go get him.

-That's another one for the fire.
-All right, send a wagon through...
-Keep those dogs back off
of those things.

-Come ahead with the motorcycle,
please. Let's go!

-Hey Randy,
light these torches over here.
