Lots and lots of undead gore.
For a comedy, Shaun of the Dead had a surprisingly emotional climactic scene. Turns out it gets even more emotional when it’s put in slow motion and reversed, a la “Dead Island.”
Thanks to Dead Island, there will be a movie based on a commercial for a video game, which tops the list of “Retarded Things To Option,” blowing past the former #1: “Twitter Account.”
The sad music, the narrative told in reverse, the slow motion, the solid direction, the heartstrings pulled – is it too late to put this in the Best Shorts category at the Oscars this year?
