The bodies keep piling up as the mystery of Self Storage Unit 83 continues. Chris must decide what to do regarding the mounting evidence that he cannot contain the bounty he blindly purchased. The content of the unit, a zombie girl of unknown origin named Jessica, has made it quite clear how much she enjoys the taste of human flesh.

Let’s just say the temporary caretakers of 83 pick the wrong time for a friendly game of paintball.
