Short Film: A ‘Zombie Musical’ From the Makers of ‘Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal’

Why Watch? It’s Friday, “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal” is joyously infecting the entire internet, and the guy who made it also directed a movie about breaking into song while the walking dead try to eat your face off. Thank you, Ryan McHenry, for putting so much beauty into the world.

If you need more convincing than that, you probably need to loosen your tie a bit, but if you really insist: The short is seven shades of smart with grueling sound effects disrupting sing-songy outbursts. It features a delightfully badass lead (Joanne McGuinness), and it achieves a difficult balance between genuinely disturbing moments, disturbing moments set to music, and not-at-all disturbing moments that find humor in obliviousness.

Cheeky, bloody, and very funny. Watch it while refusing to eat cereal.

What Will It Cost? Just about 12 minutes.

Trust us. You have time for more short films.
