It does not take much to convince Frank and Joe to be extras in the new zombie movie that's filming in Bayport. Not only do they get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the magic that goes into making horror movies, they also get to wear freakishly realistic zombie makeup that makes them look like the walking dead!
But the horror gets a little too real when disaster hits the scene. Equipment fails left and right;a set tumbles down, nearly killing the film's famous lead actress; and a terrifying explosion threatens the cast and crew. Worst of all, Frank and Joe are targeted as possible suspects. Time for the Hardys to step up and play the role they know all too well: detectives!
