Jennytown, on the island of Deer, Maine, is a sleepy provincial town. Life in this coastal place will be savagely affected by the arrival of a plague that infects the whole planet: the dead are rising from their tombs and devouring the living. Zombies have invaded earth. Maddie, a young woman incapable of making her own decisions, lives a placid and grey existence alongside her husband Jack, an illiterate and brutal lobster fisherman. Due to a terrible accident at sea, the mariner will die, swallowed by the waves. But the plague which runs rampant throughout Earth will also affect Jack, who will return from the dead and rise from his watery grave to visit his beloved wife. Written by
I saw this short film on full 35mm at "Festival De Cine De Viña del Mar 2006", in Chile, it was an amazing experience to enjoy this top of the line piece with my film making school partners, it was a lot of buzz about this one inside our group.
The technique and beauty is amazing, was that kind of material which i was looking for some time, the ghoul kinda aesthetic with those greens and purples makes an exquisite experience and eye candy.
it has a weird kind of dark comedy on it but always with an "candy in the mouth" feel, i mean, all those exquisite compositions and colors can drive you insane in a good and enjoyable way.
I haven't read Stephen King's short story, but i think this adaptation just fit the bill.
Julio Bahamonde C. Chile
