Zombie News Flash: Subject S

Transcription of recording received...

The recent zombie outbreak has led to some interesting observations. First and foremost is the ability of the zombies to actually heal themselves by eating human flesh. I intercepted this report from a researcher in the military base south of the first outbreak.

Notes: Thanks to recent advanced studies in brain mapping, we’ve been able to restore some memories from Subject 1E3L-2. These memories are only available in audio format, as mapping the visual portion of the memories requires substantially more processing power than provided by [lab name redacted]. The recording features the voices of the subject and [name redacted].

Subject (S): “Holy Crap. Are we safe?”

[Name Redacted] (NR), whispering: “I think so. There’s a pretty large group of them outside our window.”

S: “Fuck. Let’s start shooting.”

NR: “Shut up! Keep your cool. They won’t know we’re in here. The blinds are closed. All we have to do it wait it out.”

S: “We’re trapped! We’re completely surrounded! We’re going to die!”

NR: “Sshhh! Seriously, man! Shut the fuck up. You are going to get us killed.”

Researcher notes a few minutes of silence followed by the sound of breaking glass.

S: “Shit! They’re in!”

NR: “Damnit, shut up.”

Researcher notes several loud shotgun blasts in close proximity, followed by muffled audio and tinnitus.

S: “There are too many of them!”

Researcher notes three more blasts, followed by moans and screaming. Should also note that the second blast seems to come from somewhere more distant. Possibly another gunman? After the shotgun blast, sounds of struggle ensue. Subject can be heard striking objects, presumably his attackers, and running. The subject apparently finds a safe place and barricades himself in it. Near the end of the recovered audio, the subject apparently calls his companion from an available phone.

S: [Name Redacted]! I need your help, man!Where are you! I’m surrounded. Trapped in the second story hallway. I’m out of ammo, man! Help! One of them bit me! Are you up here? I’m not feeling so good, man. I’m scared as shit and my arm is really burning. Fuck! It’s like fire! It’s spreading!

Subject screams loudly and starts making a commotion. Researcher notes the sound of an opening door and grunting. At this point, possibly due to the infection, the audio is increasingly difficult to recover, being interrupted by bits of unintelligible gibberish. The last bit of recoverable audio is perhaps the most telling and most gruesome.

NR: “Holy shit, there you are. Are you okay? We are fucked man.

Researcher notes that the subject does not respond, only growling.

NR: “No way, man, cut that shit out. You are not one of them.”

Researcher notes that the recoverable audio ends with the sounds of a struggle. A voice can be heard screaming, then gurgling, then being replaced by a loud crunching sound as I suppose the sounds of bones being crushes must sound as amplified through the skull. After that point the audio is unrecoverable.

  2. It does seem cool. Loads of swearing to emphasize the emotion too... LOL

  3. Ooookay--"the ability of the zombies to actually heal themselves by eating human flesh" Do they grow limbs back or is it just wounds that heal?
