It's amazing what you can do if you have clever writing and narration

When you look at the trivia section for WHAT TO DO IN A ZOMBIE ATTACK, you learn that this film was done on the cheap. Not only did the volunteer zombies do their own costumes and makeup at home, but the entire thing was filmed with a consumer video camera in only one day. To think that this managed to be funnier than most short comedies I've seen is quite a testament to the folks who made the film.

There is no dialog in the film. Instead, a chipper and very proper sounding narrator explains the proper way to fight off a zombie attack. This is all done like a 1950s public service film and what makes it so funny is the way that Communism and zombies are combined into one very paranoid and silly parody of the era. While a few dullards with no sense of humor might hate the anti-women and anti-Canadian biases of the film, anyone with even a minimal sense of humor will no doubt know it's all in good fun and not take it serious.

Very, very clever and funny. I sure wish the folks who made this tried some more projects--I'm excited and ready for more.
