Zoombies (2016) Movie Script

What if I told you
the garden of Eden was not a myth.
But a reality.
And what if I told you
that there is a Utopia full
of enchanting animals and
natural wonders, waiting for you.
My grandfather had a dream.
To bring all of nature's wonders
to one fantastic location.
Welcome to Eden Wildlife zoo.
Eden started over fifty years ago,
as a rehabilitation retreat
for endangered animals.
Soon, this sanctuary
will be open to the public,
so that everyone can enjoy
the wonders of our bird Aviary,
our African Savanna,
Alligator swamps,
and our kingdom of the great Apes.
And don't forget to download
our state of the art app,
so you can track the progress
of your favorite animals.
You and your family
will be able to monkey around
on a variety on a kid
friendly amusements.
Including our climbing wall,
our new water park,
and our high tech
high flying zip line.
Where you will soar across
our African planes.
Make your reservations today.
And be the first to explore Eden.
Our doors are opening to you
and your family soon.
Eden is not just a zoo.
It's an adventure.
These are the last two.
Put them with the others.
Until we know
what we're dealing with,
protocol dictates we must contain
all potentially diseased
primates into a confined area.
Is it the Marburg Virus?
A zoo in Puerto Vallarta had an breakout.
Could be rabies.
It could be simian varicella.
- But these animals aren't sick.
- Not yet.
But until we know
what we're dealing with...
Dr. Gordon! Convulsions!
Lock that door! If she escapes,
every animal in this place
could be at risk!
She's going into cardiac arrest!
Her heart stopped.
Then we'll restart it
with intracardiac epinephrine.
Sir, forgive me,
but it's violation of the World Health
Protocol to use that serum
on such a small primate...
I don't give a damn about protocol.
This animal must live.
- Is it the virus? Gone airborne?
- We don't even know if it's a virus.
This is strange.
- Whoa!
- What the?
Where did it go?
Come here, baby.
Come here, baby!
Alright! Robin, look.
I'm going to paralyze her.
I need you to...
Why won't it open?
Robin, what are you doing?
I'm getting out of here!
Get back here, Robin! Robin!
Robin! Get back in there!
Welcome to the first day of
your zoology college
internship at the Eden Wildlife Zoo.
Hi! I'm Dr. Ellen Rogers.
My grandfather built this endangered
and rehabilitation refuge
over fifty years ago.
Because of our efforts,
animals such as the American Alligator
and Gray Wolf are now...
Mommy! Mommy, I want to see Kifo.
Sweetie, remember we're supposed to play
the "quite game" while mommy's working.
Sorry, babysitter called in sick.
Perks of being a single mother.
Do you still have the California Condor?
- We have African lions, spider monkeys,
- What?
nolan warthogs,
- I don't know.
Rothschild giraffes,
- Just make something up, Jane.
You owe me.
Because you're the reason
I'm even at this stupid zoo.
and Queensland koalas.
Koalas are marsupials.
Just tell Brad my mom
went nuts again
and I had to take her
to the hospital.
The one thing that we don't have,
is rude students.
Hey! I was talking!
I know. We could hear you.
Well it's a very expensive phone.
Which you can collect
at the end of orientation.
And that goes for all of you.
Fork them over.
Fork it over.
What a joke.
Thank you.
Actually I was planning on documenting every
step of my internship with photographs.
You can do that when
the zoo is open to the public.
But for right now
we are still private.
And I do not want any of our secrets
to be put out there on social media.
So, come on.
Thank you.
It's not like I'm cutting of
your arms you guys.
I'd rather you do that.
This is my stop!
- Slow down!
- Sorry. My name is Ricky,
and I want to run
my own Aviary one day.
Don't we all?
Are you firing me and
replacing me with this kid?
No. It's intern orientation day.
But I don't need an intern.
No, but the zoo does.
And the education subsidiary
financing that comes with it.
Nice shirt.
Are the raptor hawks in there?
And saker falcons?
What about a hooded vulture?
We have just about everything
but a partridge in a pear tree.
What do you have against them?
They're not endangered.
All the birds in our Aviary are.
Are these the new recruits?
Hey! Would you like me
to introduce you to them?
I don't have time. Rex sent me out
to check an alarm at the vet clinic.
Anything I should be concerned about?
If we all got worried every time Dr. Gordon
accidentally tripped the panic button,
we'd all have ulcers.
Okay, well let me know if anything's wrong!
The birds are important to us,
we keep them captive and
away from the other animals for a reason.
Some of these birds are
the only ones left alive on the planet.
I can't wait to see what they eat.
I just may feed you to them
if you don't calm down.
So, Amber.
What is a young Republican
like yourself doing in a place like this?
I cannot believe she took our phones.
I mean, my mom is
gonna freak if she can't get a hold of me.
What are you doing here?
I thought you were a poli sci major?
I am.
But homeless people scare me
and I'm allergic to babies,
so this is my only option.
Wait? What?
Okay, our intern supervisor,
Gus, should be here.
Yeah well if I had my phone,
we could just call him.
Okay. I've had enough of the attitude.
I've kept my end of the bargain.
Yeah, um.
Thanks for keeping this a secret.
Can you sign this for me, please?
If Gage and the other find out,
they get me kicked out
of my sorority
and my mom will become
more manic than she already is.
Why are you on probation anyway?
Let's just say I lost my temper
at the wrong bar with the wrong policeman.
Thanks again for arranging this.
Oh no, no, no.
You can thank your grandmother.
Being related to my biggest donor
has its privileges.
Mommy! Mommy! When do we get to go see Kifo?
We can go see kifo right now.
Let's go.
Okay, if Gus does not show up,
I want you to walkie me. Channel 2.
Or you can just give me
my phone back.
Nice try.
Oh, hey!
Sorry, kids. I was just breaking
in the new bathroom.
So who want to get in the pen
and help me feed the warthogs?
I do! I do! Pick me!
You don't look like the kind of girl
that wants to get dirty.
Well you don't look like the kind of guys
who has ever seen a girl get dirty.
Hi Kifo!
Did you have a good day?
Sweetie, sweetie.
You really need to be careful. Okay?
He won't hurt me. Say hi, Kifo!
Hi, Kifo.
Is that a cross-River Gorilla?
Yes it is.
It's the only one
in American captivity.
And it can talk to your daughter?
Yes. Kifo and Thea practically
grew up together.
I wanted her to have friends
her own age.
But didn't really expect it
to be a Gorilla.
Look at that.
AJ, I'm guessing your the kid
they stuck me with?
Yes, sir! I want to know everything
there is to know about primates.
How they think.
How they socialize.
That's great.
Let's start on how they poop.
Nice socks.
Okay, sweetie.
It's Kifo's bedtime.
- Bye, Kifo.
- Bye, Kifo.
Our refuge is a
self-contained community.
By having a minimal human footprint,
our animals can adapt to captivity
much more naturally.
I concur. In my thesis,
I argued why free-range zoos
are better than
traditional caged ones.
- Can you count?
- Sure.
I want you to go down
to the basement and I want you to
take inventory of all the gas
and methane tanks.
Gas and methane. Got it.
Oh! And you can lose the tie.
I liked my tie.
You know, I was kind of hoping
to do a little more
than just count cans
on this internship.
Wait until you add expense sheets.
I'm also going to need you to sen faxes,
pick up Fed-Ex, and answer phones...
What is wrong with this new system?
Okay, there we go.
You play sweetie while mommy works.
Is your daughter always here?
When the nearest day care center is
over 30 miles away you get creative.
And being in the middle of
the boonies here is a small
sacrifice to pay for
the safety of the animals.
Besides, this is my playroom too.
I earned my PhD on
Captive Breeding Theory
right over there
on that equipment.
When I grow up, I'm going to be smart
and learn how to use a telescope, too.
It is a microscope, sweetie.
So you're a scientist? What made you
give that up to become a zoo director?
So I could run the refuge
and do it right.
Oh! We really gotta run.
Okay. Bye, sweetie!
Hey buddy.
What is it, Boris?
- Whatcha doing?
- I'm working. Quit it.
You busy?
Come on, man.
Boris, stop scaring him.
Oh, come on.
Ty is scared of everything.
Especially the animals.
I swear that Gorilla
was trying to mate with me.
- How was she?
- He was gentle.
And this is our security.
Good Morning, Dr. Rogers.
Oh, Boris. Yes.
So I ran into Johnny outside.
He's on his way to Dr. Gordon's office.
Is everything okay?
I can radio and see.
Thank you.
Hey Rex. You should meet me out
in the promenade in a few minutes.
I have a new victim for you.
Ah! It's about time we hired
some new help around here.
We can't run this place with
two security guards and a dog.
Did you hear that?
He just called you a dog.
So sorry to keep you waiting.
It's fine.
We're still a bare-bone staff
around here.
Is that a zip line?
It will be. The line will go from here
all the way around the zoo.
Part of our family fun adventure
makeover that we're doing.
But if it brings in revenue,
I guess it's was worth it.
Rule number one,
security guys don't dress for church.
I will kept that in mind
if I ever with security.
You guys. This is Rex.
Rex is the head of our security.
I'm Gage.
You're not Leslie Hogan?
Well if he is, he stole my name.
I'm Leslie. I go by Lizzy.
I'm sorry, I'm just...
It's fine.
It happens all the time.
And I look forward
in changing your assumptions.
Security to Rex!
Security to Rex!
It seems everything
isn't okay at the clinic.
The Alarm has been tripped,
but no one is answering his walkie.
Copy that. We're on our way.
All right guys!
Talk to me. What's going on?
- The alarm at the clinic is still
going off. - And Johnny's not answering
his walkie or his phone.
Well try the clinic's intercom system.
I'll call Dr. Gordon's cell.
Hey Boris, can you call his assistant,
Robin? See what's going on.
Ellen, we could see for ourselves what's
going on if we invested in more security...
No now.
Secutiry to Vet team. Respond.
This is security.
Is anyone there?
Dr. Gordon's cell phone
goes straight to voicemail.
- So does Robin's.
- Okay guys. Maybe he went home.
Dr. Gordon leaves early
on Mondays anyway.
Well then, who activated the alarm?
Could be a hazardous animal escape.
Yeah, you would think that.
Drama queen.
Okay, I highly doubt that anything
dangerous escaped from Dr. Gordon's clinic.
Since he only deals with
small monkeys and lemurs.
Guys, actually, Procedure calls for
a team of at least five guards
to go when the first unit
doesn't respond.
- Who's this brainiac?
- My intern.
Who I think is trying to get out of
doing inventory of the gas cans.
My professor did say
that I would lean everything
there is to know
about managing a zoo.
- Including security.
- Okay. Okay. Okay.
You win. You win. But when we get back,
you are cleaning out the staff refrigerator.
Rex: With all of us gone, you'll be here
by yourself. You okay with that?
It's a zoo, not Jurassic Park.
So I take it you've done
security before?
Yeah, my last job was security patrol
at a junior high school.
I thought I could make a difference.
In the end it made me
swear off ever having kids.
The kids were that bad, huh?
No, but the parents were.
And that's why I chose to come here.
At least animals are
a bit more reliable and tame.
There's a reason
they call it wildlife.
Just remember, it's the animals
that need protection from the people.
Not the other way around.
Yes, Dad!
Looks like Johnny made it here fine.
Security to Vet team. Do you copy?
Hey, hey, hey. Taser stick only.
Boss, we don't know what's wrong.
We don't know what's right.
Let's go.
- Your boss said no weapons.
- It's not a weapon. It's an accessory.
Some women wear wedding rings.
I wear firearms.
But that's against the rules.
Look, would you feel safe
if I had a gun or not?
I just don't want you
to get in trouble.
It's too late for that.
Dr. Gordon?
Maybe they forgot to lock up.
That's not very professional.
Boris, kill the alarm.
Well now you guys are really
going to see how a zoo works.
Okay, you know what?
This goes against
all zoo protocol that I've studied.
Alright, I'm not certified,
let alone trained to handle this taser.
Guys, your insurance adjustor
will go n a rampage if I get hurt.
No one?
Get behind me.
Get the Dr. out of there!
Hold on doctor. It's just us.
The electronic lock's jammed.
- Break it open!
- We're trying!
Doc, we're just trying to help.
Push now!
Are you pushing?
I am!
- Break it open, Boris! Let's go!
- That is not helpful!
On three!
Barricade... Barricade the doors!
Robin's dead.
Where the monkeys?
Johnny. He tried to help me.
I shouldn't have,
I shouldn't have let him.
They're all dead.
They're all dead.
Doc, are you alright?
Why does it sound like that?
It's their running cry.
Help him!
It's not working!
Shoot it Leslie! Shoot it!
I can't!
Gage, you have to kill it!
Okay, okay, okay!
Oh shit. Oh shit. Oh shit.
Why do the animals have to fight?
'Cause they got tire of being nice.
Ellen, come in. Ellen are you there?
I'll be right back.
Dr. Gordon's dead!
- What?
- They're all dead!
All of them?
We need to get everyone to safety
and I'm gonna call the police!
No, no. This entire zoo could be
overrun by the time they get here.
People are dead!
I'm calling the police and
I'm notifying their families.
We're going to track down
these monkeys,
and contain them before
they infect the other animals.
No! Get back to
the watchtower immediately.
Not until I contain the monkeys!
Well, I don't think we can call
them monkeys anymore.
They turned into something... different.
It should be easy to find them
with the tracking equipment.
They're heading west.
To the African and Australian exhibits.
I'll make sure I head over there.
What about the Aviary?
What about it?
We have thirty-seven
endangered species in that Aviary.
If these monkeys infect
these birds and they take flight...
I'll make sure the monkeys
don't make it to the Aviary.
We'll trap and kill them
if we have to.
Rex, we are these animals
only protectors, not their predators.
I don't think we can follow
that rule anymore.
Be careful.
And be quick!
Are you okay?
Everything's going to be fine.
How far away is the African exhibit?
About a quarter mile away.
- That's where Amber is.
- I'll drive.
Shouldn't we wait for
the authorities to handle this?
No need to wait.
We are the authorities.
Attention! This is not a drill!
I repeat, this is not a drill!
Attention! This is not a drill!
I repeat, this is not a drill!
The zoo perimeter have been
sealed off for the safety of our
zoo personnel and
for our other animals.
Attention! This is not a drill!
I repeat, this is not a drill!
The zoo perimeter have been
sealed off for the safety of our
zoo personnel and
for our other animals.
Please seek immediate shelter
in a secure and locked facility!
Attention! This is not a drill!
This is not a drill!
I repeat, this is not a drill!
The zoo perimeter have been sealed off
for the safety of our zoo personnel.
Seek immediate shelter
in a secure and locked facility!
Okay everybody. Let's go into
the feed storage shed right now.
Don't get any bright ideas.
- I don't like that.
- I don't like that.
- What are you doing?
- What are you doing?
- Stop it!
- You stop it!
That siren means
a dangerous animal escaped.
Escaped! Escape! Escape!
Come on. You can help me lock up.
When can we unlock the doors?
As soon as they secure
whatever animal has escaped.
Okay. Get down from there.
It's too late!
Go this way!
Go up! Go up! Go up!
Give me your hand!
I don't care what your
standard procedure is!
No! We cannot wait that long!
We could be dead!
And so could the animals!
Fine! Call me back!
I'm not going anywhere!
Oh, sweetie.
Sweetie, didn't mommy tell you never
to eavesdrop on her while she's at work?
Are the animals gonna hurt us?
Some of the monkeys got out.
Bad monkeys?
They're just sick.
But I'm not bad when I'm sick.
Why are they?
I don't know.
I don't think the monkeys
know why either.
Are they going to hurt Kifo?
- We need to protect him!
- No! Sweetie, Sweetie.
Kifo wants me to protect you.
He told you that?
Yes, he did.
Want to go back to the play room?
Let's go.
We should get help.
Quiet! Did those monkey come back?
Oh my God!
Please! No!
Watch out!
Help! somebody help me!
Kyle: Shoot him!
Help me!
Help me!
Careful, don't hit the girl.
I'm going for the brain.
Will someone please shot it?
Amber! You okay?
Oh my God!
No, no, no! You're okay.
You're okay. You're fine.
I could have been in a soup kitchen
or helping the bums
clean up trash. But no!
I thought it was so cleaver coming here
to serve my time in a stupid petting zoo.
It's okay.
I'm gonna die here.
No, no, no, no.
Amber, you're going to be okay.
You're going to be fine.
I thought my mom was going to
kill me for getting arrested but
I don't have to worry
about that now, do I?
Somebody help me over here.
You're okay.
Rex! Come in. Where are you?
Ellen, we have more dead.
Both people and animals.
How soon could we expect
to get help from the outside?
The police have informed me
that they need to wait for the
CDC before they can
approach the zoo.
The CDC reps are on their way.
But they are coming from Atlanta.
And it maybe be at least three hours.
Okay. By that time it maybe to late!
I mean, this thing might spread
across the whole zoo by that time.
No! Chelsea assured that
the Aviary is safe and secure.
That no monkeys are getting in there.
This isn't about the monkeys, Ellen.
Something crazy is infecting
this whole zoo.
Lizzy thinks it affecting
their brains.
Their brains?
Rex, please.
Just get to the watchtower and
we will wait this out until the CDC arrives.
Okay. What if I run into
any animals along the way?
I never thought I would say this,
but... shoot to kill.
I can't take anymore chances
of anybody getting hurt.
Ellen: We've already lost enough life.
Rex, not all the animals
have turned.
We shouldn't turn this zoo into
some kind of safari poaching expedition.
We won't have to if we don't
confront the animals directly.
I don't trust these people.
They're going to protect us.
Please, Gage. Just come with me.
What? Out of the zoo?
All of the animals
have a tracking chip implanted.
See these two yellow dots
right here?
These are giraffes.
Even the dead ones.
Either you're coming with me
or I'm going by myself.
So by tracking all the animals,
that includes the birds too, right?
Not all of them.
That's too dangerous.
That Aviary is huge.
if this virus infects just one of
those birds and it flies out of here...
I know, I know.
Well knowing about something
and doing it are two different things.
- If we run fast the animals can't catch us.
Come on! - That is a suicide mission.
- And you're better off with them?
I don't think so. - Yes!
Help us!
Rex, prop his head up.
Oh my god! am I starting to turn into
one of those things?
No. We don't even know
if what they have affects humans.
But what if it does?
What if I become one of them?
Then I attack you!
And maybe I'll try and kill you!
Okay. Look, look, look. We'd just
have to kill you first, buddy, okay?
Sorry, I'm not ready to die.
Hey, hey, hey! Come back!
With all of our equipment.
I want to help the animals.
Honey, even I don't know
how to help the animals.
Use your telescope.
I don't have a telescope.
You mean my microscope?
That's what I said.
Air support, coming in!
Don't see any activity yet.
Perimeter secure.
Hagfish theory...
claims endangered animals
have the choice to choose
their destiny to either
evolve or go extinct.
- But evolve into what?
- Mommy!
One lump or two?
None, because you are
the sugar I need.
Thank you, my dear.
Oh, thank God!
Yes, I have told everyone in my staff
to stay away from animals.
But there are people
out there that are scared.
Yes, I will check right now.
Okay. Alright, so we got two flashlights.
One swiss army knife
and a gun with five round in it.
What about your walkie?
It's in the jeep.
Which your girlfriend took.
She's not my girlfriend.
Who cares who's girlfriend she is!
Because of her we have no transport.
No way to contact Ellen.
No, no, no.
Elephants are friendly.
See. Told you.
Yeah, well how do you know
it's not infected.
Elephants don't have any natural predators.
It stands to reason that
the infected will leave them alone.
And if they leave
the elephants alone...
They'll stay away from us too.
Oh well, take your pick, kids.
We have never had an animal escape before.
And I don't expect one now!
Alright, ma'am. Let's just calm down.
Now, has any employee
exited the zoo?
No! No one has left.
That's good.
I'm gonna need everyone
to stay inside.
Right now we cannot take
any chances.
- I have told everyone to stay
on the premisses. - Hold on, ma'am.
No, no, no.
Do not put me on hold again!
Tango, this is bravo team.
Moving in.
Copy that. Weapons hot.
Everyone check your corners.
We don't know what we're going
to run into down here.
Eyes up.
There it is. You're on point.
Keep it tight. Stay together.
Go, go, go.
What are we looking for down here?
What's that over there?
I thought I heard something.
Moving in.
If you can hear me,
pull your men out! Now!
What the hell is that?
It's not going down!
It's not going down!
Oh God! I'm in so much, Aah!
Are we safe here?
Safe enough.
How much is enough?
If the animals want
to get out of here badly enough,
it's gonna take more
than bullets to stop them.
Im - I'm going to check on
the parakeets.
You go do that.
Come in, Rex.
Why aren't you on your way
to the watchtower?
Why are you leaving the zoo?
Rex you can't leave!
I need you here!
Hey! Help me! help me, please!
Please! Open the gate.
Hello! Please help me!
Help me!
Amber! Where is everyone?
Answer me!
No! You're gonna answer me! You're going to
open the god damn gate. Let me out of here!
Amber, where is Rex?
He's probably dead by now and
I will be too if you don't open the gate!
I can't do that!
Yes you can!
Are you gonna help me?
Amber, look to you left.
Are you gonna help me?
What do you see?
Just open the gate!
Amber, get out of there now!
I am not going back there.
Just open the gate!
Amber, NOW!
I'll scale the walls if I have to.
What's that Kifo?
You want more tea?
I think you had enough.
That's impossible.
I would have seen it
if there was an animal in here.
Sweetie, did you see...
What's that?
You want to invite Mr. Koala
to the tea party?
Mr. Koala?
Please! Please!
Please! Please work!
I don't want to play
with my animals anymore.
Ssh! Not so loud.
It's okay.
They're just marking their territory.
Hey Rex.
I know this is my first day
on the job but I want a raise.
Just take my job. I'm retiring.
What's wrong?
I'm not sure.
How easy is it to break into the Aviary?
Aviary is a solid steel cage.
It's secure.
As secure as this place was?
Let's get out of here.
- Come on, girl.
- Let's go.
It's okay.
My elephant's scared too.
Is there something on the ground?
It's not in the ground.
It's in the trees.
Rex! Look out!
No, no, no! Aah!
No! Oh my god!
Are you guys alright?
Yeah, thanks.
Hey what did you shoot at those things?
It's a rocket gun I have left over from
the independence day firework show.
Have you got any spare
around amount of bullets?
Quick! Get them inside
before they come back!
Watch his leg! Watch his leg!
- We can lift him together. Come on.
- Slow. Slow. Slow. Slow.
Take him by the table by the window.
You're okay, mate.
Watch his leg.
Hey! AJ close the door! What are you
trying to do? Let all the animals in?
Of course not.
Guys, I think these cuts
are getting infected.
Come with me. I have some ointments
and antibiotics back here.
Thank God.
You'll be okay.
Just hang in there, alright?
Just a little more.
You think I'm going to turn into
one of those monsters?
No, man. You'll be fine.
Alright. You're good, brother.
Hang in there, Rex.
This might hurt a little bit.
Look, I don't care if you put us in
a quarantine chamber for the next ten years!
You have to get us out of here!
When can I expect that?
No! Two hours? No, no, no, no. Please.
Wait, wait, wait.
What are you doing, mommy?
Trying to figure out what is changing
these animals and how we can stop it.
When can't stop them.
Until they get what they want.
What do they want?
Isn't it obvious?
They want to get rid of us.
Are you sure you're okay?
And the birds are fine?
We're okay.
I'm babysitting buddy boy here.
Luckily nothing got in except for a rat.
And you can imagine how long it lasted
with all the birds and prey here.
Just, everybody is very concerned
about you, and that's-
Do I tell you how to handle you Gorilla?
No, no. I wasn't implying that
you are not capable of handling the Aviary.
Dax, we're on lock down.
We're not going anywhere.
Neither are my birds. I got this!
Chelsea says, "Hello".
And that the birds are fine.
Is this our only mode of transportation?
I think it's safe to say the tram
had it's last service run a while ago.
What about the zip line?
I saw it from Ellen's office.
It goes from the watchtower...
Down to the kanga grounds.
Which aren't that far from here.
No, no, no, no, no!
Guys, that zip line is none operational.
We cannot use that.
Doesn't have the proper
safety equipment attached.
It's not happening.
So, what are our options?
Well, we wait.
Wait here so those things get us?
You got any better ideas, brainiac?
Be careful, that's sharp.
We use it to cut Bamboo.
At least it's something
to protect ourselves with.
Other than just screaming
at the animals.
We need to get to that Aviary.
Not with your broken leg.
We cannot let anything happen
to those birds.
As stubborn as Chelsea is, she can't handle
an outbreak if anything happens.
We gotta get there.
I'll go.
- By yourself?
- Why not?
Wait! You guys.
We should stay together.
I mean, think about,
we're safe here.
We have plenty of food.
We have plenty of water.
And most importantly, we have...
The animals are closing in on us.
Shit! I got to get out there!
- I don't think that's such a good idea.
- Excuse me, intern.
This is my sanctuary
and I decide what's good.
Daxton! The kid has a point. Don't go!
You don't understand.
None of you do.
Kifo is more then just a gorilla!
He is the only animal of his kind
still left alive on this planet!
- I'm not gonna be here just to watch...
- Daxton!
Hey buddy.
What's going on, man? How you feeling?
Oh, no.
Kifo is turned.
Easy! Easy!
Kifo! Please! No, no, no! Kifo!
Lizzy, I need you
to make me a promise.
Don't let any bird or any other animal
get out of the park. You understand?
- But I...
- Don't.
- But...
- Promise me.
I promise.
You're coming with us.
I can't out run them, Lizzy.
Then stay here and
we'll come back for you.
Don't do this.
I know my purpose.
And you go out and figure out yours, okay?
- No.
- You'll be okay.
You go.
No! This way!
Why don't we just go
the way we came?
Get out of here!
I can't hold him much long! Go!
They have us surrounded.
Hurry! Quick!
No, no, no!
Come on! Go, go, go.
How do we get out of here?
Up those rocks.
Come on. Let's go.
Shit! Come!
Come on! Come on!
Guys, come here! Come here!
Okay. Come, let's go.
Come on. Come on. This way!
Is that area clear?
I don't see any animals.
Then again, they can be in hiding.
How you like your
internship so far, boys?
Did you go to college?
Didn't even graduate High School.
Why did you do that to yourself?
Why do you make your life harder
than it needs to be?
All I ever wanted is to be left alone.
That's why I chose security.
People usually walk the other way
when they see me coming.
It's fine by me.
I don't need anybody to like me.
I kinda like you.
No you don't.
Yeah, you're right.
I don't.
Look, I need your help.
Rex made me promise not to let
any of the animals escape the zoo.
Especially the birds.
We're gonna have to kill them.
They're just birds.
But they can get infected.
That's another even better
reason to set them free.
And what's to stop the birds
from pecking at the changed
animals even once we've freed them?
By that logic, we should kill every single
living creature living on the planet.
If those animals get out of the zoo,
we may be forced to do just that.
Shh! Listen.
You hear that?
Is that the police?
It's Amber.
- Let's go.
- Let's go.
Amber! Amber!
Amber! Amber, stop!
Oh my God!
I want to go home to my mom.
No, no, no.
You're going to be okay.
Gage. Hey.
She may have left us behind. But at least
she had the decency to come back.
We need to get her body out the car.
We can give her a proper burial later.
Grab her feet.
Security to Ellen. Are you there?
Lizzy! Where are you?
Ellen: Hang on. Let me switch to my phone.
Come on, sweetie.
We're by the gorilla sanctuary.
Things got a little crazy.
You have no idea how crazy
it's been getting over here.
How's Rex doing?
I'm sorry, Ellen.
Rex didn't make it.
I want you to get all the interns
and I want you to get out of the zoo.
Ellen: When you get to the gate,
call me and I will unlock it.
What about the CDC?
I don't care.
I am not waiting for them anymore.
And I don't care what they do.
I don't care if they arrest me.
I'm getting us out of here alive.
I will go to the Aviary and
I will get Chelsea and Ricky.
Wait a minute, Lizzy?
Where did you say you were?
The gorilla sanctuary.
It's safe?
No. Nowhere in this zoo is safe.
Get in your jeep and drive now!
- Ellen, what is it?
- Lions!
- Ellen?
- Surrounds... Get out!
- Gosh! Hurry!
- We've got a problem.
I'll drive.
Gage! Take this!
Well, I'm never a very good shot.
So get better at it.
I dropped a shell.
Lizzy! Lizzy!
I got it!
Good job!
Come on.
I think I know a way out of here.
Ellen, we're perfectly fine.
You know how strong the Aviary is.
I can't just release these
endangered animals into the wild
and risk their extinction.
We risk our own extinction
if those birds get with the
infected animals
have in their systems.
I checked the brain matter of
a koala that attached Thea.
There is an enzyme in the brain cortex
that I have never seen before.
I am getting this samples to the CDC.
And Chelsea,
I need you to release the birds.
And don't go anywhere
until I come and get you.
- What's wrong?
- What's wrong?
The birds. Ellen wants me
to set all the birds free.
- How do we do that?
- How do we do that?
I can automatically open the roof.
We do it sometimes for
cleaning but it's not very practical.
Do you need help with that?
Help with that.
Help with that.
Shut up.
Can I please set this bird free first?
Come on.
You can let him out over here.
- Guys! Wait!
- AJ hurry! We need to get to the Aviary!
Before it's too late.
- We're not gonna make it on time!
- Yes we will!
- No we won't!
- AJ, calm down.
No! The birds are going to get infected
and escape from the zoo and kill everyone!
Ssh! Listen.
What is that?
Something big.
We gotta go now!
Why are they acting like that?
I don't know.
It's like they're trying
to get away from something.
I knew it.
The zip line was exactly like the one
I used during my summer in Hawaii.
But Rex said
it wasn't completed yet.
It's close enough.
The grappling hooks are already installed.
Where are the body harnesses?
We're just going to have
to hold on, alright?
Oh my god! It's high.
Look. The reservoir is slick. The momentum
is going to carry us all the way across.
Just focus on the watchtower
until we get to the other side.
- Can't we just hike?
- No!
We either leave now and get away.
Or we stay and get taken by...
Ah! I need your help! It's breaking.
Hold on!
You okay?
Come on. Come on.
Stay here! Do not move!
Quick! Both of you come!
- We gotta go!
- Now!
Come on! We gotta go!
We're going down to the basement,
right now!
- We can get out through the garage.
- What if they're down there too?
We're going to kill them
before they kill us.
You remember those gas cans
I wanted you to count?
You want me to do inventory now?
No! We're going to use them.
Quick! We don't have much time!
We need to get to the utility closet.
Grab as much as you can carry!
Okay. When the birds are free,
we'll use the gas cans.
You're going to set
the Aviary on fire.
Do I have a choice?
It's us or them.
My grandfather would be so disappointed.
No he wouldn't.
You're doing the right thing.
You're keeping us alive.
Ellen to Aviary.
Is anyone in there?
This doesn't look right.
Well maybe they set
all the birds free and left.
- Gage, you stay with Thea.
- Mommy! No!
Honey, I have to go check on
the bird lady to make sure she's okay.
No you don't.
We'll go.
If anything happens I need you
to set fire to the Aviary.
Even if you're still in it?
In case it's locked.
And be careful.
If anything happens, promise me
you'll destroy the Aviary.
Is anybody in there?
Help me!
That's Ricky.
Ricky! Where are you?
Where are the birds?
Help me.
Come over here.
They're going to chew
their way out of there.
Whatever happens, stay inside.
Help me! Help me!
Help me!
Help me.
Help me!
Oh my God.
Help me! Help me!
Help me! Help me! Help me!
Help me! Help me!
It's nesting in me.
It's nesting in me.
- Oh my God.
- It's nesting in me!
We gotta get outta here.
I'm so sorry, Grandpa.
I tried. I really tried.
Nice! Yes!
It feels so good right now.
Where are they all going?
She already started.
Get in!
We're not done here yet.
The fire won't reach them on time.
Pull up the truck as close as
you can to the Aviary.
- What?
- Just do it! Please! Trust me!
- What are you doing?
- Keeping a promise.
He doesn't look very happy.
- Let's go!
- Run!
We're almost there!
We're almost there.
Go! Go!
Okay. Okay. We can get up!
We can get up! One at a time!
Gage, help them over the gate.
- Lizzy!
- Just go!
Go! No!
No! Kifo! No!
My grandfather, trusted me
with his dream and...
I ruined it.
My whole life all
I wanted to do was
save endangered animals.
You still did that, mommy.
I did?
You saved our lives.
For that, I think your grandfather
would be very proud.
Yeah, I hope so.
I don't think I'll ever get use to flying.
So, get better at it.
