It all began a long time ago when one night, 8-year-old Scout Lambert was helpless as he watched in terror as his whole family was murdered right in front, for some reason leaving him the sole survivor. 20 years have gone by, and Scout has grown into a broken, mentally and physically scarred, anti-social, mistrusting and irrationally violent mess of a human being, forever haunted by that night. Scout has managed to convince himself for many years that his family were in fact torn apart and eaten alive by what he perceives to be the living dead, which has prompted him to a laughing stock among most people and cobbled with his PTSD and insomnia, he has been diagnosed with delusional paranoia, but this had never deterred him and he has spent all those years gathering all knowledge of zombies across various sources (fictional and non-fictional) and has been preparing himself for when the undead might inevitably re-enter his life. And that time has arrived sooner than he expected as approaching the anniversary of his family's death, Scout begins to recognise and suspect early signs of a zombie outbreak brewing, so he decides to quickly take this opportunity to put his plans to action takes it upon himself to take to the streets of Atlanta, hunting down and killing any zombie he can find and trying to save the potential victims in order to contain the outbreak as he can before it can take its full effect on the rest of the humanity. Although he tries to work in secret, his actions are quickly gaining the suspicious attention of both the media and the general public and they developed mixed opinions on him: some believing he's just a very disturbed serial killer while others are beginning to believe there might be a lot more going on than what people are suspecting. After a short while, Scout realises that the only way to prevent this outbreak from spreading any further, he'll need to trace its origins back to its source and stomp it out for good.
(Notes: Essentially, this movie is a mashup of both the zombie genre and the vigilante genre. Look in the comments for more notes on this subject.)
MPAA Rating: Rated R for strong violence and gore throughout, language and brief nudity.
Scout Lambert - Main protagonist, a traumatised and extremely troubled young outcast turned zombie-slaying vigilante.
Gwen Humphreys - A nosy and overzealous young investigative journalist with a history as a former med student, who is reporting on Scout's vigilantism, but eventually becomes a reluctant accomplice of his once he saves her from a zombie attack that claimed the life of a close friend/colleague of her's.
Jonathan Domon - A seasoned yet hot-tempered long-suffering veteran cop who was in charge of Scout's family's case and acts sort of like a semi-father figure to him despite Scout not wanting anything to do with him.
Sean Lopez - Domon's arrogant and hotheaded rookie partner who makes his personal mission to hunt down Scout's vigilante after it's revealed that one of the zombies Scout had killed was, in fact, Lopez's pregnant wife.
Achaikos Oberti - An infamous, impatient and seemingly untouchable Italian-Jewish mobster who after being wary of Scout's vigilante activities begins to fear that he'll be a potential target so he puts out a hit on him.
David Conroy - A highly ambitious yet mentally disturbed military scientist and the CEO of a major biotech company, who was at first aiming to find a permanent cure for cancer, but after results turned much different than what he was expecting, he changed his ambitions into creating a race of supersoldiers out of the deceased, growing an extreme superiority/god complex.
Camilla Whitehall - Atlanta's controversial newly elected mayor with an extremist point of view, and has connections to both David Conroy and Achaikos Oberti.
