I like this type of very short stories built around a classic horror theme. I think this story can become more interesting with more work on both characters and atmosphere. I believe that with a more thoughtful choice of words, the amosphere can be made more interesting. The story needn't be much longer but needs reworking. That takes time and many attempts. At this time the story is still rough and obvious. The moment the evil comes could be delivered less obviously. The character of the girl needs work so that the reader can care more for her. At the moment she witnesses the story and allows us to see it through her eyes but we don't get to actually feel for her.
More work needed, but this story will work.

That being said, there were some things I had difficulty with, along with some structural issues that made this a difficult read for me. As far as the characters, the only one I really was concerned with was Jack. Death and... read
A review of P.A.M.by **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 07/15/2014P.A.M is an entertaining, high-octane, fast moving zombie picture. I read this in one sitting and it was overall an enjoyable read. I’ll try and talk high level and hopefully some of this will be helpful. Your opening was untraditional as far as the zombie movies I have seen. Normally we get that opening of 10 or more pages/minutes where all is fine and dandy before the world... read
