Zurvival Saturday (108) Zombie Shorts


Lately on my wanderings through the Web I've come across some incredible Zombie shorts that I thought were worth sharing with all of you. Some of these seem to be made for promotional purposes such as the Boost Mobile Ads but all are nonetheless amazing and the attention to detail and story is equal to or maybe even better than half the big budget films being produced recently. So without much further ado and in no particular order here they are!

1.) Stay Living- Ben's Film

3.) Stay Living- Mary's Film

I love all three of these shorts and am just sad that I hadn't heard of them sooner. Boost Mobile should seriously consider funding a full length film with these characters. I know I for one would totally watch it!

4.) The Next Day- Zombie Apocalypse Short Film


Normally I don't go in for Parkour and Zombie films because it always seems to be the Zombies who practice it, however, in this short it works. I love the artsy feel of the back story between the guy and the girl and I also liked how he used Parkour to his advantage to outrun them. Very cool short.

5.) Cargo


I might have shared this one before but it still remains one of my favorite shorts to date. In the span of barely 7 mins the journey we take with these characters is both heartbreaking and oddly hopeful. It is truly a superb short film.

6.) Tears


OK I admit being a parent this one was hard to watch but it did also give us a quick glimpse into what being a Zombie would look like from a Toddler or babies perspective. Oh and that ending, super creepy!!!
