Short Film of the Day: A Zombie Claymation

Why Watch? Because dry humor, zombies, lumps of clay, and Evil Dead go together surprisingly well.

This short from Lee Hardcastle had its world debut at Cannes this year, and I would have given an undead right arm to be in the room when it played. Like yesterday’s zombie exploration, this is sweetly endearing for taking the abject horror of the genre and taming it with stop motion animation, tons of clay carnage, and a few simple jokes.

Watch the short, and you’ll see Evil Dead all over it.

What does it cost? Just 3 glorious minutes of your time.
