We’ve all come down from a meth-induced bender at the start of the zombie apocalypse. Fiend tells the tale of a young man’s struggle with the gnawing affection of the undead and his own addiction. Follow Chase as he gets to know his charming neighbors, such as a little girl and her dog (she’s eating the dog); a web-entrepreneur (who may or may not have turned during her adults only web-cam show); or worst of all his good friend Typewriter (who is holding out on him, man!). Zombie lovers could get addicted to something this good. -Steve.
