Even Icelandic Zombies Want to Eat You
28 February 2012 | by graeme-206-255002See all my reviews

Quite simply, this Icelandic zombie short, stole the show at Glasgow's FrightFest.

As an unannounced addition before we were subjected to Tape 407, and an English title of "Undying Love", I was left bemused, wondering why it was being shown at the Festival.

The opening presented us with the idea that we were watching a homeless person as he struggled to survive in an extremely run down part of a nameless large city. As he readies himself for venturing outside, the questions begin - why is he putting on protective pads and a helmet ? The director/writer brilliantly puts the audience on edge at this point, quite how he managed to cram so much into what on screen was about 3 minutes, I'll never know, however it's delivered perfectly and extremely professionally.

The audience knows that the man has lost his true love, and is now alone in the world, however it's not until he ventures outside that we realise the world (or at least his world) has descended into zombie anarchy. Usually, running zombies put me off, however, in this short, they are perfect - leaving me in no doubt as to the fragility of humanity in a world overrun by the hungry undead.

Without giving anything else away, as to do so, would spoil the climactic and powerful ending, but suffice to say that it left me wanting more.

Much more.

An absolute gem of a short, don't miss this if it ever comes calling to a festival/website near you.

9/10
