Synopsis

This is the first of a four-episode series which features a quartet of senior women in a small town social club, known as The Crimson Cap Ladies. On one of their monthly excursions, they get trapped in the seedy town bar fearing for their lives as people start going missing, then returning as zombies! Of course, an alien invasion is blamed, thanks to the presence of Buck, who believes he has had a UFO encounter in his past and is certain they have come back for him. The ladies must figure out how to escape from the accidentally sealed bar and learn what is behind the disappearances of the staff and some of their members before it gets them all!
