Somewhat Average Zombie Short
17 March 2014 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

The zombie apocalypse is breaking out and this time it's more inconvenient than usual since it's happening at Christmas - just think of all that money wasted on presents that will never be opened . A desperate group of humans run through some dark woodland with the flesh eating zombies right behind them

This is a strange mixture of good and bad . It's low budget but the directors don't let that bother them as they concentrate on conveying the end of humanity through sound . You don't see much but you can certainly buy in to the fall of Mankind down to what's happening offscreen with explosions , desperate screams and other sound effects , It also has a very clever trick where we see two points of view , one the human one here the zombies are terrifying and the other one where the humans are terrifying

What doesn't work is the appearance right at the end is a creature that doesn't make much sense and I was confused what it was supposed to be . DARK TIMES also suffers greatly from feeling like it was a segment from a feature length film and once again it's a short with a cynical air that screams " give us a wad of money to make a ninety minute film " which means despite having a good central idea it doesn't really come across as being more than average
