Sundance 2013 has featured some of the worst short films ever in their respective program. "When the Zombies Come" is no exception, the short is filmed like a documentary, which draws inspiration from the TV show "The Office" - there is no story or even any characterization. The short merely focuses on the inane notion of an imminent zombie apocalypse and indulges in the fantasy of taking refuge in an Ace store, where many sharp weapons could be used to kill these zombies. That is the whole premise for this short, and nothing else happens! It baffles me how stuff like this made it into the festival, considering not too long ago we got to see some great short films like "Bottle Rocket", PT Anderson's "Cigarettes & Coffee"... this year it seems like these shorts were chosen at random, and it doesn't make any sense. When the Zombies Come is just one of the many horrible short films in the Sundance 2013 festival.
