Originally intended as separate amateur entries in the online Zombie Film Contest, short tales "Come Back Home" and "A Quick Shower" were incorporated with a third unnamed zombie tale, to create the short anthology film, PASTICHE OF THE DEAD. Set in the early hours of the Romero era zombie apocalypse, these three tales, presented in five segments, were created to see if individual zombie stories could each be told in under four minutes, by amateur actors and a filmmaker on a shoestring budget.
