Opening Credits

It's been a while, but that doesn't mean that the zombifcation process has been lying dormant. Oh no, I've got a plethora of ideas.

The first of which is the opening credits. As previously mentioned, we were going to have the hero(ine)s start off at the Taco Bell at the Student Union. And so I thought, why not have them drive there? Conversely, now that I stop to think about it, it would still work if we had them walk there. So. Whichever.

It could start out in the hero(ine)s' dorm room, said roommates agreeing on where to eat, the song cuts in from the playlist on the computer, which the girls leave running as they leave. The song continues (either out of someone's boombox or out of the car radio) until they get into the student union. Remember the beginning to Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, where the camera freezes on the characters while the narration is going on? Kind of like that, only sans narration.

When Tarantula took to the hills
And I got really hot when I saw Jeanette Scott
Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills

Dana Andrews said Prunes gave him the Runes
And passing them used lots of skills
But When Worlds Collide, said George Pal to his bride
"I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills," like a
