I Worked on a Zombie Horror Film

Los Angeles, 1997. I’m in a Hancock Park mansion for three marathon days working on a low-budget mafia/vampire/zombie flick starring an ex-Playboy Playmate and an actor who’s been dead for more than a year. My pay: $75 a day. My position: props/art department. The fact I’ve never worked in props or art department is never discussed.
