THE HITMAN'S DEAD

(Horror Action Thriller)

In a section of the city slated for complete demolition and redevelopment, a lone skid row hotel stands as the only beacon of light for blocks. The tenants are a cross-section of the flotsam and jetsam of life, all waiting, fearful of where fate is going to take them.

Into this hotel comes RANSON, pursued by the UNDEAD. He forces the inhabitants to seal the entrances and soon the hotel is under siege by the undead, all communications cut off. It is eventually revealed that Ranson is a hitman, whose former targets have been resurrected and now hunt him for a "vessel" that he carries.

Ranson and the inhabitants are driven back up each floor by the undead onslaught from below which is led by a former rival of Ranson's known as THE DUDE. They finally take refuge in the apartment of VIGGO, a wheelchair-bound pedophile who has created his owned armed bunker against the coming of the End of Days, which he deduced from the bad news flooding the world media. Viggo reveals that the undead seek the "vessel" and points to a hollow pendant filled with a liquid that Ranson wears, a sentimental token from his murdered mother that he refuses to give up.

It comes out that Ranson's last job was the targeted hit on the child of multi-billionaire. Only this was no ordinary child... but the Antichrist. And the "vessel" has the ability to restore life fully to one dead.

As the undead close in, Ranson discovers the truth about the "vessel," and the terrible sacrifice he must make to save the world from the End of Days.
