Twisting the zombie genre isn’t an easy thing to do, not only because of its long history but also because of its massive presence in pop culture right now. This short laughs at that challenge, dribbles around it and dunks in its face. Sweetened with some gender politics and the edge of survivalism, it has fun with the trope (partially because its characters look as unimpressed by the presence of zombies as we are) and manages a nice dismemberment plan. Long story short, I’d love to see the feature-length version.
