Storyline

It's not uncommon for people to seem a little 'on-edge' come the holiday season, but for mild-mannered Howard Phillips, it just so happens that everyone else is suddenly running right over that edge with bloodshot eyes, foaming mouths, and unstoppable urges to kill...and they're running towards him. It could have something to do with the lack of shopping days left on the calendar, but Howard is betting that his recent visit to a medical testing facility is more likely to blame. Before he can find out what he took and how to stop it, he'll need to go toe-to-toe, or fist-to-teeth, with every bloodlusting living thing between him and quiet spot to put a plan together.

Great holiday short
22 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the best shorts I've seen in quite some time. I came across it on the internet while randomly browsing.

I was hooked from the beginning. Great cinematography - it didn't feel amateur. The script was well written, the makeup was great, and it kept my eyes glued to the screen. I have a hard time understanding how they fit the story into a 23 minute short without feeling rushed or empty. I wish that this was an entire feature film as it did leave me wanting to see how the story eventually plays out. I hope this team gets a shot at some big titles as I know they wouldn't disappoint. This short reminds me of Shaun of the Dead in a way. Highly recommended.
