    Cool before the infection overcome

    In this sentence, do you find something wrong as for the writing?

    But there was not living dead today, since it was scheduled to shoot only the events before the infection overcome.

    Is it "overcome" or rather "overcomes" being a subjunctive?

    Thanks

    It doesn't make any sense to me.

    Sorry, maybe I would have had to put down some little explanation before. The sentence is referring to the shooting of a movie with zombies and the like. The scene is in a wedding party, and all the people is dressed up and happy. But things are going to end up very badly. The schedule for the day was for the beautiful part.

    Does it help? Very grateful for your attention

    Re: before the infection overcome

    Where does this sentence come from? Can we see it in the context?

    For the record, the subjunctive would be incorrect here.
