Synopsis for "A Death Made Out of Ticky-Tacky"Edit

Traveling through New Orleans, Layla and the Zombie stop when Layla accidentally steps on broken glass and cuts her bare feet. She is then attacked by a rat, however the Zombie is able to fight off the vermin, killing it. Deciding to have the Zombie hide someplace where it won't be seen, she goes to find Papa Doc, a resident expert in Voodoo to see if he can free Simon Garth from his curse of being a Zombie. He makes some Gris-Gris in a bottle and sends her off to use it on the Zombie, however when she arrives in the derelict building she had left him in, she is shocked to find that the Zombie has left the scene.

The Zombie has been called by the Amulet of Damballa, that is in the possession of Fred Miller, a fire fighter who found the amulet in the a burning warehouse. While Fred is throwing a swingers party, he holds the Amulet and has inadvertently summoned the Zombie. At first, everyone is horrified, and Fred tires to kill the Zombie with a gun, but it has no effect. Realizing that the Zombie is under his control, he and his fellow singers decide to amuse themselves with the zombie by ordering it to do tricks and other embarrassing acts.

When one of Miller's neighbors goes over to complain about the music, Fred has the Zombie attack him, and then acts as concerned neighbor. Later they send the Zombie to scare the elderly Louis Garrison, the owner of the Morrison Tool and Die Corporation, and the boss of one of Fred's friends. Their prank goes off well, however the sight of the Zombie scares Garrison so badly, he has a heart attack and dies. However, Fred and his cohorts shrug it off as though it were nothing.

Finally, they send the Zombie to attack a voodoo priestess, ironically it turns out to be Layla. On his way out, the Zombie spots the Gris-Gris and is about to grab for it, when Layla revives from her blow to the head and pulls off the necklace of Damballa around the Zombie's neck, giving the creature free will. Furious at being used for such horrible deeds, the Zombie then tracks down Fred Miller and his party goers and beats them all the death. When the police arrive on the scene they find the Amulet of Damballa among the dead bodies.
