They're coming to get you Barbara. An old story with a new end and a new beginning. Johnny and Barbara escape from the undead, live through the night, then pick up a hitchhiker on their way home. No good deed goes unpunished. Johnny blacks out, then goes to the kind hospital where patients check in but don't check out. When the rubber hits the road, Johnny and Barbara put the pedal to the metal. The End...?
