Title:- Zombie Love
Characters :- Boy and Girl Zombie. Anonymous. A mad scientist and two anonymous surgeons
Locations:- Graveyard, Hospital Room, The woods.
Situation:- A zombie couple are happily peaceful at their home (graveyard) when they are
attacked by a mad scientist and two surgeons, they are kidnapped taken away to a laboratory
where they are to be experimented on. The couple escape and find peace back at their home.
Thesis:- The first characters introduced are the Zombie couple, they are enjoying their peaceful
bliss in their when they are attacked by a mad scientist with fishing nets. He captures them and
take them back to his laboratory where they are strapped down to be experimented on. Then
with some slow motion effects and a projector the couple appear to escape and manage to find
their way to the graveyard ‘their home’ where they were at the beginning.
Antithesis:- The action occurs when the mad scientists kidnaps them. He wants to experiment
on their already mutilated bodies, the reason’s why are un-known. There are simultaneous
shots of the boy and girl with lines being drawn on the boy’s head as if he is preparing for
surgery and for the girl she is shown a knife in front of her face but is later stabbed in the
stomach. The Extreme Close Up’s on their faces show the fear and pain of what is about to
happen with a Wide Shot developing the scene with the characters moving to the music
backwards and forwards off the bed.
Synthesis:- The mad scientists and surgeons then appear to fade away with the beds and the
projection screen comes on in the background with images of the surgeons and scientist running
after the couple with the couple then running in front in slow motion. The camera then pans
round for the couple to appear back at the graveyard ‘their home’ where they relax and sing to
the camera, pointing out the church is the haunted house. They then collapse back onto their
graves and enjoy bliss.
The story starts with a zombie couple lying hand in hand on a grave each in a graveyard with a
church in the background. They are happily blissful but sing some of the lyrics in the song which
show the audience that he could be a vampire! They then walk backwards and have a romantic
dance in the moonlight backwards which then leads them to their capture, kidnap and
abduction, out of nowhere appear to fishing nets and the zombies collapse with fear. They
awake on a stretcher beign wheeled through dim lighted hall ways with the camera only being
focused on their faces, where as the verse starts again, they appear to be drawn on to start
being experimented on, and they have deadly looking weapons shown to their faces for the
audience to see their reactions. We then see a mad scientist wrapping his fingers triumphantly
as if he has completed an evil mission he set out to do for a while. As that has happened and we
have established three characters, the surgeons have a domestic in front of the zombies as they
discuss whether the couple is really dead or not. This then results in rhythmic torture for the
couple as the anonymous girl is stabbed repeatedly and anonymous boy is electrocuted . They
are saved though by a strange twist of fate, and the mad scientists wheel off the beds and leave
the couple running for their lives in slow-motion with the scientists on a projection screen in the
background behind them. It also enables to get the audience involved with a Mickey Mouse
style sing a long appearing at the bottom of the screen. The camera then turns round to a
complete change of scenery where the couple emphasise their relief to be back home, and
collapse with exhaustion at the adventure they have just had back on to the original graveyards
with a church in the background, to show the ‘haunted house’. It ends up with a peaceful
camera swoop into the skies and the last lyrics to pop up at the bottom of the screen.
