Summary
Barbara and her brother, Johnny, visit their father's grave in a lonely backwoods cemetery, where a crazed man knocks Johnny unconscious. Barbara runs away and finds refuge in a farmhouse in which she discovers a partly devoured body. Ben arrives at the farmhouse also trying to escape from similiarly crazed dead people. They find more people barricaded in the basement. Ben explains to Barbara that a mutation resulting from radiation has caused the dead to arise and devour the living. Ben decides to make a run for it, but the zombies attack the house. Barbara's dead brother drags her away. The next morning, Ben awakes to see men shooting the zombies and is mistaken for one and is killed
