The Infects

author: Sean Beaudoin

Seventeen-year-old Nero is stuck in the wilderness with a bunch of other juvenile delinquents on an "Inward Trek." As if that werenít bad enough, his counselors have turned into flesh-eating maniacs overnight and are now chowing down on his fellow miscreants. As in any classic monster flick worth its salted popcorn, plentiful carnage sends survivors rabbiting into the woods while the mindless horde of "infects" shambles, moans, and drools behind. Of course, these kids have seen zombie movies. They generate "Zombie Rules" almost as quickly as cheeky remarks, but attitude alone canít keep the biters back. Serving up a cast of irreverent, slightly twisted characters, an unexpected villain, and an ending you wonít see coming, here is a savvy tale that thatís a delight to read ó whether youíre a rabid zombie fan or freshly bitten ó and an incisive commentary on the evil that lurks within each of us.

A feast for the brain, this gory and genuinely hilarious take on zombie culture simultaneously skewers, pays tribute to, and elevates the horror genre.
