Why Watch? Perhaps the most stunning, deeply-felt zombie short film of all time. Everything here from the cinematography to the effects to the storytelling shines like the finest brains offered up on a silver platter while a gorgeous rendition of “Mara’s Lullaby” plays in the background.

What seems silly on face – following a man dressed in a penguin costume who has recently turned undead – becomes truly affecting. It’s one of the few zombie films to deliver a haunting sadness and crucial empathy for the infected. Simply put, it is mind-blowing. (And the end credits hit even harder.) It’s the best zombie short film you’ll see all year.

What does it cost? Just 7 minutes of your time.

Check out Zombie In a Penguin Suit for yourself:

Trust us. You have time for more short films.

Hat tip to Jeremy Kirk for sending this my way.
