Meltdown combines the genres of Zombie Comedy and post-apocalyptic sci-fi, very much in the style of Shaun of the Dead meets Mad Max. The film centers around four listless small town losers. Bar owner Zeke, trust fund baby Les, hopeless romantic Callie and beat down college dropout Hunter as they go through the motions of another seemingly boring day in their town of Somerset, Pa. The day takes a grizzly toll as reports come in of a strange epidemic that has, in the blink of an eye, enveloped much of the east coast. The four quickly find themselves in the position of kill or be killed as they are forced to hack and slash their way through friends and loved ones in a last ditch effort to survive the fall of Somerset and society as they know it.
