I notice someone has mentioned 28 DAYS LATER in their review . Understandable and what Boyle's horror thriller did was reinvent the zombie sub-genre with its hyperactive super fast zombies . Ironically it didn't have to be a zombie horror movie but I suppose it's more difficult to market a movie that is post apocalypse drama rather than a straight forward horror movie but it's interesting how many people praised 28 DL if only down to stark imagery as the protagonist wandered through a deserted London
Omar Hauksson has obviously been influenced by Boyle as well as Richard Matheson's I AM LEGEND . A man awakes after dreaming of a world long gone . He dresses and equips himself for a day wandering through empty streets , empty that is except for zombies who have now replaced humanity as the dominant species . The music used as the man walks through zombie filled streets is guitar orientated and isn't a million miles away from East Hastings by Godspeed You Black Emperor and John Murphy's In The House In A Heartbeat both famously used in 28DL . If there's a problem with the scenario it's that the internal continuity isn't consistent . The zombies are capable of great speed and instinct but when the narrative demands it due to plot they're slow and unaware of a man creeping up behind them with a baseball bat . That said the story then takes a plot turn which I didn't see coming for a second and was so obvious I felt slightly foolish for not working things out for myself so this short film is an undeniable success
