In perfect small town America, a little town called HeartsVille in the heart of sunny california, everything seems to be like a fairy tale. Happy family and perfectly safe neighborhoods have made HeartsVille the safest community in America.
When a pharmaceutical company opens up nearby the outskirts of the community testing new chemicals and substances, the toxic waste somehow brings back some of the deads to life.
After discovering and capturing a zombie in their backyard, 10 years old best friends Chuck and Sam have a genius idea: starting a Zombie Fight Club. The rules of the zombie fight club are simple:
- Parents are not allowed to know about the Zombie Fight Club
- If your zombie loses you lose your zombie
- If your zombie wins you earn a zombie
Pretty soon every kid in town secretly hides a zombie in his basement and partakes in these secret fights. In order to avoid being caught by their parents, who are simply under the impression that their sons are playing Xbox 360 in their basement, kids create a complex network of underground tunnels connecting houses one to the other, so that they can effectively move without being seen.
Zombies are similar to pets, they get attached to their owners and will entertain them in exchange of some red meat, preferably human.Zombies however hate being traded after losing a match, and when betrayed they will often turn against their owner, devouring him and turning him into a Zombie as well. Furthermore if you own a Zombie who loses a fight, and your zombie is too weak, the owner of the winning zombie can demand YOU as winning prize, and you get turned into a zombie as well... after all we all know kids are somewhat mean at that young age :)The zombie fight club soon becomes a huge underground phenomenon, so big it can't be much longer kept a secret. Once the media gets a hold of the story, the ZFC goes national, with media coverage and with sponsors!
