"Because of the obvious threat to untold numbers of citizens, and because of the crisis which is even now developing, this radio station will remain on the air - day and night. This station, and hundreds of other radio and t.v. stations throughout this part of the country, are pooling their resources through an emergency network hookup to keep you informed of all developments."
(Excerpt from above:) "This station, and hundreds of other radio and t.v. stations throughout this part of the country, are pooling their resources through an emergency network hookup to keep you informed of all developments."
"So, at this point, there is no really authentic way for us to say who or what to look for and guard yourself against. Misshapen monsters! Reaction of law enforcement officials is one of complete bewilderment at this hour. So far, we have been unable to determine that any kind of organized investigation is yet underway."
"Police, Sheriff's Deputies and emergency ambulances are literally deluged with calls for help. The scene can best be described as mayhem. The Mayors of Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Miami, along with the Governors of several eastern and midwestern States, have indicated the National Guard may be mobilized at any moment, but that has not happened as yet."
"The wave of murder which is sweeping the eastern third of the Nation is being committed by creatures who feast upon the flesh of their victims."
"This list will be repeated throughout our news coverage. Look for the name of the rescue station nearest you, and make your way to that location as soon as possible."
Spokesman: "In the Cold Room at the University, uh, we had a cadaver. A cadaver from which all four limbs had been amputated. Sometime early this morning, it opened its eyes, and began to move its trunk. It was dead, but it opened its eyes and tried to move."
Spokesman: "The body should be disposed of at once - preferably, by cremation. Reporter: "Well, how long after death, then, does the body become reactivated?" Spokesman: "It's only a matter of minutes." Reporter: "Minutes? Well, that doesn't give people time to make any arrangements." Spokesman: "Oh, your right, it doesn't give 'em time to make funeral arrangements. The bodies must be carried to the street, and...and...and burned. Ah, they must be burned immediately! Soak them with gasoline and burn them! The bereaved will have to forgo the dubious comforts that a funeral service will give. Ah, they're just dead flesh - and dangerous!"
"So long as this situation remains, government spokesmen warn that dead bodies will continue to be transformed into the flesh-eating ghouls. All persons who die during this crisis, from whatever cause, will come back to life to seek human victims, unless their bodies are first disposed of by cremation."
"Our news cameras have just returned from covering just such a search and destroy operation against the ghouls, this one conducted by Sheriff Conan McCullen in Butler County, Pennsylvania. So, now let's go to that film report."
"All law enforcement agencies, and the Military, have been organized to search out and the marauding ghouls. The Survival Command Center at the Pentagon has disclosed that a ghoul can be killed by a shot in the head, or a heavy blow to the skull."
Chief McCullen: "We heard 'em making all kinda noise, we came over and beat 'em off & blasted 'em down." Reporter: "Chief, if I were surround by six or eight of these things, would I stand a chance with 'em?" Chief: "Well, there's no problem - if you have a gun, shoot 'em in the head. That's a sure way to kill 'em. If you don't, get yourself a club or a torch. Beat 'em or burn 'em, they go up pretty easy."
Reporter: "Well, Chief McCullen, how long do you think it will take until you get the situation under control?" Chief: "Well, that's pretty hard to say. We don't know how many of 'em there are. We know that when we find 'em, we can kill 'em. Reporter: "Are they slow moving, Chief?" Chief: "Yeah, they're dead, they're...all messed up."
