Director's Comments

Film #4 from 'Funny Boys Films'
This is a film homage to all the favourite Zombie type films I love. You will spot character name references from lots of films (not just Zombie films), a few in jokes scattered around etc. This time round I wanted to experiment with Chroma Keying. In most of the film the green screen effect came out pretty well.

This first episode is somewhat slow paced, I wanted to get the story foundations in place before the guns & gory fest that will be episode 2.

Episode 2 will be more action packed and have more special effects.

Staff Review

Randy Yard:
Fans of zombie films will be the most appreciative of this piece due to a plethora of inside jokes and references, but even non-fans will find plenty to like here. The director does a good job of slowly building into the action and effectively telling an entertaining, if simple, story. This film never gets too pretentious or take itself too seriously, instead reveling in bashing hordes of the undead into submission and leaving the thought-provoking stuff for someone else's film. If you're okay with suspending all brain function and enjoying the next seven minutes thoroughly, you've come to the right place.
