A halloween mask, a camcorder, and a zombie obsession
14 December 2007 | by mr_GoodbombSee all my reviews

I hate to disagree with the previous poster so starkly, but I suppose that's the point of rating systems and opinion comments like these in the first place. I got to see this short film in with the premiere of another feature-length zombie flick, Deadlands: The Rising. I'll save my thoughts on that film for the appropriate forum, but I will say that this short diminished a bit of my hope for that film, being that it showed before it.

The film was, more or less, a guy in a halloween skull mask with a hoodie on running around the woods being filmed on a camcorder while he pretended to do go about daily undead "life." No budget, no effects, no others actors, really (at one point he's seen in a vehicle talking to a friend, and a car passes, but that's about it)... Mainly, the entirety of the short was an opportunity for the creator/s to make jokes and commentary about zombie life while showing similar things in the action of the main character. So, zombie walking about in the wood, playing air guitar, looking bored... and audio dubbed overtop of the character talking about what he's doing.

It could be an alright concept, despite the lack of any budget or effects, because that stuff isn't nessicary, especially in an indie short like this, if the humor is good and the shots look appealing. There was really no focus on artistry as far as cinematography goes, and I just didn't care for the jokes... Didn't find it funny, myself, it was kind of forced, nerdy, awkward humor.

So, without any real focus on cinematography and jokes that went unappreciated... There really wasn't anything else TO this flick.

I appreciate the effort, but for all the hype this short had online and before the premiere... I feel like I missed something. Maybe an inside joke?
