The attackers grow stronger as the bond among the remaining survivors weakens; the doors burst open and the flesh eaters reign. Dawn breaks. A posse of farmers, police and dogs surround the farm house, burning the last of the flesh-eaters. Hearing help is at hand, Ben bursts out of the house, wild-eyed and mute with the terror of the night - only to be confronted with the well-meaning but unthinking living...
