Synopsis
Dr. Higgenboth is murdered by his jealous co worker Dr. Mason. Dr. Thompson catches Mason in the act and kills Mason in self defense. Thompson finishes Higgenboth's research and donates the proceeds to Higgenboth's widow and even checks up on his now Fatherless family. Higgenboth is so grateful, that he comes back to life as a zombie, digs himself out of his buried casket, makes his way to Thompson's lab and kills Thompson, because the range of expression for the undead is limited. The zombie only knows how to kill. So no good deed goes unpunished.
