The fact of the matter is that, I only gave this a 9, because I wanted it to go on for a bit more. Thats the only truly disappointing part of this whole thing. I mean, you want to know what happened. Its quite gripping actually. A starving man in the woods, hiding from the inevitable. Walking Dead show is unfortunately preceding this ambitious character study about survivors desperately clinging to sanity at the end of the world. Not only is this an exercise in genuine filmmaking style, but the few actors in it have invested realism. The shame here is that in the wake of Walking Dead, it is interesting to think what might have happened with this little short, as rumor has it that it was being developed with a television series in mind. Zombie fanfare is oft imitated, seldom if ever stand alone, and because the filmmakers have not omitted emotional resonance, this horror entry stands leagues above the others. For almost 15 minutes I was absolutely riveted. There is a obvious sense of directorial style here, and as a film buff, I could not help but wonder if these people who made this might actually be the real thing. Hollywood needs talent of this caliber, and it goes without saying that I will be eagerly anticipating their next entry in the genre. Solid talent all the way around, imagine what these folks could do with a huge budget. Thanks Badfritter, keep it up.
