    Maybe you are escaping from a volcanic island, that is erupting, in a small boat.

    And comet like molten chunks of magma are landing all around you causing the cold salty seawater to geyser and boil. The ghost ship you find after two nights out into the endless slate blue sea surface could be your only hope for refuge and survival, if you can get her engines fired up . . .

    Even better . . .

    Our boarding party discovers a fully functional machine shop below decks. With a horde of the ravenous undead bearing down on them through the dark passages, hollow wet moans drawing ever nearer, they must fashion primitive weapons and armor with which to combat the impending cannibal doom. Only . . . there's no WiFi . . . meaning no You Tube how to videos. What will they ever do now?

    And . . . we discover one survivor aboard. But can we trust her? Is she still human?

    Right. But let's have some fun with it regardless of reality's lack of romanticism.

    Caddo, you're definitely not getting in the spirit of the thing here.
