Plot: It's 1979 in rural Ohio. Walkmans, muscle cars, walkie-talkies, bicycles, Blondie, and shag-bedroom-hair (before Justin Bieber) were in. 12-year-old Joe Lamb (Joel Courtney) has just lost his mom in a terrible factory accident. Joe finds refuge, alongside other tween misfits, by making an amateur zombie film (on 8 mm film) for a local youth film festival. The group has been secretly filming their low-budget zombie flick at night. They contact each other (how else?) via walkie-talkies. Imagine, an age before cell phones.
