Film: Steve Niles' Remains
A freak nuclear accident turns the citizens of Reno, Nevada into flesh-eating zombies that become more aggressive as time goes by. A small group of survivors take refuge in a casino and chaos ensues.

It premiered on Chiller TV (a U.S. channel dedicated to the horror genre and a sister network to SyFy) in December 2011 as a part of their Chiller Presents movie series.

- Fingore: After Tom is bitten by a zombie, Tori hacks off the finger with an axe before any infection spreads.
- Hey, It's That Guy!!: Little Gage Creed has returned from the dead again, this time a little older and a little less murderous.
