Children of the Dead
Tib and Scott arrive late to class after meeting with the principal because they were fighting over Kelly. A scream out in the hall snaps the class to attention. It got in. That's what it does. At zero hour, Tib, Kelly, and Anne Marie are among the fast few who escape from their classroom alive- Scott does not. Once outside, everyone becomes embroiled in a deadly game of hide and go seek; Tib and Kelly head off in one direction, while Anne Marie leads a small group of fellow students in another.

She is joined by a stand out female detective from Texas, Katrina, who had already been chosen by him a year earlier.
