Shortly after their meeting, Ridley kidnaps Valora and takes her on the date of a lifetime. She can stay and talk or she can run; her choice. He likes when they run. It becomes sport. Valora chooses not to run and the courtship begins. Over the next few days Valora is tortured, physically and mentally, but Ridley, oddly remains always the gentlemen. In his own perverse way, he’s trying to woo her. With nothing left to lose, Valora puts her plan in motion to turn the tables. The hunted becomes the hunter. The victim becomes the victor, but only after putting Ridley through everything that he put her through first.

Part zombie, part voodoo! Desperate to end her husband’s domestic abuse, a young woman seeks asylum from a local voodoo priestess. When warned that her husband (Khotan) may “change” if given a special potion, the abused wife is relieved. But waking up in bed next to a zombie isn’t exactly the transformation she was hoping for. Her once violent husband becomes the leader of a zombie uprising, terrorizing, and then converting the townsfolk into un-dead assassins. Clearly, some things are far worse than death.
