Videos: Zombie Penguin Phone Home

It’s rare that I label any movie as poignant, much less a short film. However, Zombie In A Penguin Suit is just that. I don’t know what the budget was, but even if it was given Superbowl commercial production it still came out incredibly well done. The premise, as per the official website, is as follows:

Zombie in a Penguin Suit is a short movie by Chris Russell. It is about a guy who becomes a zombie while wearing a giant penguin suit. Hilarity and sadness ensue.

Oh but it’s so much more. You almost get a sense of the penguin’s sense of sad self awareness and the undying struggle for his objectives: flesh, and finding his way back to the ocean. The music plays a nice paradox to the chaos in the film, and reminds me of the first game trailer I saw for Gears of War. Just when you start feeling bad for this lost chap, he mauls a survivor before continuing on his unknown path. The video takes the viewer through a big city all the way to a small coastal town rebuilding and recovering from the outbreak. No words are spoken and so all of the emotions and moods are conveyed strictly through the actors’ expressions. Awesome. You get a good feel as to how much time progresses through the use of makeup showing the slow deterioration of Mr Penguin’s face and ability to walk.

Alright enough commentary. Just watch that sh*t. It’s great. If you don’t think so, you’re an as*hole and I hate you.

Videos: Bing Wants You To Be A Zombie Star.

Last night during The Walking Dead, Bing attempted another shot at relevance by dropping a zombie commercial and hosting sweepstakes for the show. Once you enter, the winner gets a stagger-on role for the show, a visit to the set with a friend, round trip airfare and hotel stay, AND $500. I love the series and all, but f*ck that. Give me the dough, and the extra money you would have spent on me instead of flying out to the set. I’ll put it towards the Romero Brooks Salvation Foundation. All proceeds are not tax deductible and go towards our own survival supplies. And alcohol. Which is also a key to survival. A great cause indeed.

Videos: What’s Scarier Than Bin Laden? Zombie Bin Laden.

ZOMBINLADEN The Axis Of Evil Dead from Clement Deneux on Vimeo.

French cinema that’s actually appealing? Impossible! I assure you, this is a reality. Amateur French film makers François Reumont, Clement Deneux & Gael Lucien filmed this nice faux trailer in a mere 4 days. I absolutely love the makeup and grindhouse feel to Zombinladen. For something shot over the course of a little over half a week, the production ended up looking  remarkably well polished.  A damn shame there won’t be a feature length film because I think Tarantino would jump at the chance to finance this gem. Obama’s voice impersonator is terrible though. Plus points for using an iPad for ordering a Nuclear strike. I guess Apple really does have an app for everything.

 

Videos: Zombie Mealtime

These guys over at EpicMealTime get pretty creative with the meals they make. They’re disgustingly hilarious too. If you haven’t seen some of their work, jump on over to their YouTube page and have a look.

But of course, RomeroBrooks feels the the best Meal Time is “Zombie Meal Time!”

Videos: Fedex Will Deliver You From Zombies.

That security guard has one hell of a ‘stache. Dude’s face as he was “turning” is quite hilarious as well. Not as inventive as the Toshiba commercial, but pretty close. Now if Fedex could only deliver my damn packages on time, I’d actually believe them. Sorry guys, but my zombie escape vehicle of choice is the UPS truck until you show and prove.
