Lacks A Killer Bite
27 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A zombie apocalypse breaks out in an American city . 28 days later only a small handful of survivors remain , but not all of these survivors are human because dogs too have survived and band together to face the zombie onslaught

Yet another zombie horror short but great credit to the Valdes duo for coming up with a plan to bring something different to the zombie apocalypse table by having the focus of the story on a band of canine survivors and reading the plot synopsis on this page of " Sit . Stay . Play dead " I was fascinated how this might play out on screen because something like this must have been an immense challenge to even the most level headed and dedicated director

The bad news is that the plot summary on this page is rather misleading . Either that or I misled myself that the focus of the story was going to entirely revolve round dogs fighting adversity in the shape of the undead which isn't really the case . That said it would have perhaps been very difficult to realise if this was the point of the story , after all how do dogs communicate how they're feeling etc on screen . Instead the dogs are used more as a framing device as they wander in to one scene after another

This might be seen as something of a pity but PLAY DEAD is more in keeping as being a love letter of sorts to the zombie horror sub-genre . It does make very obvious references to 28 DAYS LATER and we see a couple of survivors stuck on a shopping mall roof which you've seen before via Romero and Snyder . Indeed this is a film that will certainly appeal more to zombie junkies rather than animal lovers
