Heading for Debra's home, they have encounters with the zombie-movie equivalent of [[WackyWaysideTribe Wacky Wayside Tribes]]: a BadAss mute Amish farmer, a group of black people who have set up a survivalist-type fort, and (briefly) a gang of [[Film/SurvivalOfTheDead National Guard deserters]]. When they finally reach their destination, they find that [[spoiler:Debra's family are all either dead or zombiefied]], so they decide to go to the mansion owned by Ridley's family.

The movie opens on a [[ActionPrologue news report]], being narrated by the FinalGirl, explaining the reasoning behind the movie itself. The main story line starts of with a group of film students, along with their sardonic boozing professor, making a classic cliched horror movie. When the group hears escalating radio reports of people coming back from the dead, the shoot falls apart, with monster-player Ridley departing in his sport car as the rest of the group leaves in a Winnebago.

* TheJaywalkingDead: Subverted. The first encounter with the undead involves their Winnebago driving over several zombies walking on the road. Thinking she's committed vehicular manslaughter, the driver shoots herself in remorse.
