While he’s digging, whoever tried to kill him shows that he believes in the motto ‘if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again’ by trying again and again.

Romeo has the help of his zombie girlfriend, his undertaker best friend, and a famous three-headed dog, but his adversary has an army of the living and the dead so, you know, odds are not good…
