Play Dead: An 18-Minute Short Film About Dogs vs. Zombies [Video]

Just to get it out of the way: the title of this post isn’t a joke. Play Dead is an actual 18 minute short about dogs versus zombies made possible by Kickstarter. I’d classify it as lighthearted horror with some sad, sweet, and silly moments and plenty of gore. I know that sounds weird. You could even say it’s about friendship and sticking together. Humans could stand to learn from the behavior of these dogs. Take notes now for the impending zombie infestation.

The synopsis is as follows:

A zombie apocalypse unites a ragtag pack of dogs in the ruined streets of Miami. Immune to the epidemic, they must stick together to survive in the midst of ferocious undead and human survivors in this unauthorized sequel to “Homeward Bound.” Sit. Stay. Play dead…

Watch the short after the break (potentially NSFW).
