In 1986, three teenage boys in the suburban town of Apathyville suspect something is wrong in their quiet community. During their investigation, they find clues to an ancient evil, long hidden in the woods behind their homes but before they can alert the authorities to the truth they’ve uncovered, the three boys are involved in a freak accident and killed.
Twenty-five years later what appears to be an industrial accident awakens the three boys from their graves and they discover that they have returned from the dead as zombies; undead creatures with super human powers that cannot be killed or harmed. The three friends realize that now they are not only indestructible but each possesses different super abilities and mutations.
On returning to Apathyville, they find that the mysterious incident that brought them back from the dead has also affected many of Apathyville’s citizens as well. It is only then that they realize that what they were involved in, may not have been an accident after all but the beginnings of an all out war between the undead and the unsuspecting people of Apathyville and possibly the world.
Aided by the human, Eddie Riggs, a professional skateboarder and extreme sport junkie who befriends the Zombz after they save his life, the three friends vow to use their newfound powers and abilities to rid their town once and for all of the plague they uncovered twenty-five years earlier and save the world from an impending zombie apocalypse.
