Just imagine for a moment being out there in the endless infinity of the trans oceans, solid land a mere memory, and then coming upon another ship over a football field in length. You and a small, unarmed crew board the derelict vessel, middle of the night with rolling waves crashing over her decks, and find no sign of human life. You wind your way deep down into the hold, down into the darkness, away from the salt stinging air and realize: you're not alone in the cavernous darkness after all . . .
unarmed?!?
Makes the plot more interesting. Okay then. We'll allow our intrepid boarding party to discover a weapons cabinet stocked with say . . . two submachine guns and a pump shotgun, however, there's only one half full magazine for the SMGs, and two rounds for the shotgun. Oh, and a couple of spear guns, but only one of them is loaded.
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?

'Ghost ship' with no one on board runs aground on Myanmar coast


From the piece:

"A mysterious “ghost ship” with no crew or cargo on board has prompted a police investigation after fishermen spied it drifting off the southern coast of Myanmar.

The vessel, which bears the name “Sam Ratulangi PB 1600”, ran aground on Thursday near Thongwa township in the country’s Yangon region.

Coast guard, navy and police teams have been monitoring the ship since villagers first spotted it earlier."

What an excellent plot for a horror movie, huh? So what do you think happened to the crew?
RATS had them for dinner.

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

I would say that yes she's probably human. Look at that diamond necklace she's wearing, she got dressed up for something or "someone" and if she's the only survivor she's probably not very happy right now. And besides, she's wielding her shoe as a weapon. You ever confronted an angry woman with a shoe? Zombies don't do that so you're good on that front although your crew might want to get out of her way :)

Yeah, I once took a stiletto to the forehead because I thought she was joking. Turns out, she wasn't. Zombies got nothing on a woman who means business, especially when her man is getting in the way of said business.
