Happy (Dead) Together
Director: David Gregan
Tagline: Zombie love revenge
Often with genre films, other themes develop within them without people even noticing. In the case of zombie movies, the zombie vengeance sub-genre has appeared from filmmakers who wanted a unique spin on their story. I have also read a story with a similar theme (a man killing his cheating wife and lover, who come back as zombies), that would also be good to adapt into a film such as this one.
In this short a man kills a woman as she is going to marry a man and “if he can’t have her, no one will”. He also ends up killing the woman’s husband and is about to dispose of her body, when he is surprised by the revived man who carries out his revenge.
While movies about killers and zombies are starting to become a bit tired by themselves, combining the two themes is a great idea and I hope more people decided to mix and match genres in the future.
I don’t know if you will ever get the chance to see this short, but if you are into films about killers or zombies then I would recommend seeing this movie.
