After widowed father and substitute teacher Peter Giller leads an eleventh-grade class on a catastophic field trip to a plastics factory, things get spooky when he and his students develop strange new appetites and body parts start falling off. Peter can't figure out what's happening -- surely he's not a zombie? "At no time in any movie does a zombie drive a car and count on his reattached fingers the ways in which he is not a zombie," and anyway, he craves bacon, not brains. But normal people don't put their bodies back together with staple guns and thumb tacks, or contemplate biting off ears. Peter's definitely not fit to be arond his children, and his mother-in-law "temporarily" adopts them. Peter's children are all he has left, and he'll do anything to be with them again. He races across the country to face down pinstriped bureaucrats, affectionate farm-girls and monsters plucked from mythology in his search for the cure -- if it exists -- to his horrifying condition.

A solid, engaging start with fairly disappointing climax and conclusion, as the unique oddities became ridiculously bizarre. I have no idea what the message here is.
