Why Watch? This is one of the reasons I love Short of the Week. Without them, I never would have found this ridiculous diamond collar in the ruff. As ashamed as I am of that last sentence, it’s with great pride that I feature this short. It plays off the well-worn zombie trope by transferring the humanity of the story to a canine set. With flashy, suggestive editing that makes the best use of a smaller budget, the moments of gore really stand out even if it’s the unseen attacks that hit the hardest.

It also manages to go into dark territory, because even if zombies don’t want to bite into the dogs, the human survivors are still trying to stay fed.

The story is a only slightly more than a few great bits woven together, and the minimal amount of shaky cam is still too much, but overall this is a creative and daring short with a lot of love for the genre.

What will it cost you? Only 16 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
