Logline: 
In a zombie pandemic, a dude with serious kung fu searches for refuge in a quest made more lonely because he's so ugly fellow survivors think he's a zombie, and the Undead know he's not.
Synopsis/Details: 

Being ugly has never been so stinking rotten!

As a final zombie battle looms, an ugly dude with a heart of gold, and major martial arts, dodges bullets from survivors who think he's a zed head, blends in with the Undead when he isn't bashing them, and drags along a special zombie lady and two human kids he meets, in a quest for sanctuary.

Equal parts action and comedy, with a dash of pathos and romance, the spatter is tempered by one of the most unlikely families you've ever encountered, “The Ugly Dude” takes the familiar zombie mythology to new places. It even warns you to think twice before unceremoniously disposing of that opera CD we got for your last birthday from Aunt Beulah!

Yep: Zombies, laughs, scares, action, opera, romance, a new origin story.

What more would you want?

A metaphor about the evils of prejudice? It's that too!

The Writer: Steve Garry

I wrote my first screenplay in 2008, at the age of 52. It was a surprise, yet predicable too, for composition was my favorite subject in my earliest years of elementary school. But somewhere between the ages of 10 and 52, I must have felt that writing wasn't a serious or possibly an attainable career. My writing methodology is unique because I use many of the same skills I used for decades as a software programmer. The stories must be both "logical" and "bug free". Oh, and hopefully, thought-provoking, entertaining, suspenseful, or humorous, often in the same script, with captivating characters and story lines, especially given the complex themes I often take on in my work.
