    Writing a screenplay for a Zombie movie, need some help

    A few friends and I were joking around about some of the best/worst, B-movie/horror/zombie flicks ever made and we decided that we need to write some of this stuff down.
    Another group of friends that I have work in the film industry(mostly TV and documentary style). But after passing this idea by by them, a few decided that this was a really great idea and want to help produce this masterpiece.
    I have the majority of the plot synopsis already written(which I will share at a later date).

    I guess what I'm hoping to get from you guys is a few great ways to kill zombies, some more great ways for zombies to kill humans and so on...
    Have fun with it. Be gross and over the top. It's a zombie flick, anything goes!!!

    Here are the restrictions:
    You are locked in a restaurant, an Italian family owned place. It has a dining room, bathrooms, kitchen, basement, walk-in cooler, an exit to an alley where the dumpster is located but it is fenced in entirely and you cannot leave the alley.
    You have NO weapons(guns, rocket launchers, etc...) other than the items available to you in the restaurant.


    Ready, set, go!!!


    Oh, and here's the movie poster that I've made to generate interest in the project. It's not the final piece, just a quick mock-up.

    Re: Writing a screenplay for a Zombie movie, need some help

    So, who are the people there? My boyfriend and I are huge zombie fans, and have seen a bunch.

    My favorite is the rape scene. Either a guy is raping a girl and before he can finish, he's grabbed and eaten, or where some one's dumb shebs thinks it'd be "cool" to have sex with a zombie. Then he/she (but most likely a he) gets eaten.

    Knife in the eye. But only if you have that awsome "Braveheart" sound.

    Hot flaming olive oil.

    My boyfriend says "someone gets killed next to or on top of a pasta maker, and as their guts spill out, it goes through the machine and makes pasta"

    Fork in the back of the throat.

    Are they fast zombies? Slow Zombies? Actual zombies, or some kind of sickness? Does the infection spread through the air, bite, scratch, or not at all? Or is that giving away too much. ^_^

    well my friend, you and I have a lot in common. My Brother and I are writing a script for a production company in L.A., they received the financing this week to green light a Web Series that will be out this spring possibly summer, it is called ZOMBY INC.! Its awesome to see others with wholesome family values; blood, guts, and infected humanoids!!!! Try these on for size:
    If there is a Bar, you could get a Zombie pinned down under the "Tap" (Guinness preferably) and Character "A" pulls the tap forcing the zombie to be filled to the brim with delicious beer. Zombie explodes, but not before the Guinness pours out the ears and nose. Instant Guinness/zombie milk shake! Or, how about a slow melted death by a creme brulee torch? You definitely need an over the top fat Italian chef who has an incredible belt fitted with fifty different chef knives! Have him square off (Like an old west shootout) with a zombie. In the scene the chef dices the zombie into a huge neatly cut pile of "Bite size Zombie?" And there is always the iconic "Italian Olive Oil Voice" lounge singer, who kills zombies with his accordion? The last one is a little dumb, but possible. You need to use the pasta maker, just like Megumi said above, only use the old hand style crank and really draw it out! Slow blood and guts is best! Good luck to you, and keep us posted!

    How 'bout dipping a zombie face in the deep frier or on the grill/frying plate?

    or.. squished between between two frying pans?

    and if there is a pizza oven.. well i guess you can have some fun with that as well...

    you should have a fight scene involving the 24quart pots full of cooled pasta in the cooler getting knocked over so the struggle happens where everyone is slipping all over a couple hundred pounds of spaghetti. another good one, sausage link nunchucks.

    Another idea! Not quite italian, but my boyfriend works at a pizza place, one that I worked at for two years. There's a walk-in freezer. Zombiecicles?

    Dough trays filled with pizza dough(?) Pizza Dough Face? They can't bite you if you shove dough in their mouths.

    Some sort of scene where someone or something's eye is replaced with a meatball?

    I like the spaghetti/marble-like scenario. Cooled pasta is slippary on non-slip flooring.

    ^_^ *** ZOMBIES! YAY!
