Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.03.09] post apocalyptic zombies movie news short

Directors Matt Simpson and Joseph Luke Avery have just given us a look at their entire 17 minute zombie short, Plague. The film has been gaining some great attention since we posted the teaser trailer back in September and was officially selected for many fests including the NYC Horrorfestival and The Revenant film festival in Seattle.

When writing the script for Plague, Matt Simpson really wanted to develop a story that didn't follow the usual scenario of an unlikely group of people coming together and bonding amidst the chaos. "I really liked the idea of using a Refugee character, somebody outside of society," he told Revenant Magazine. And so, Plague follows Vilhelm, an illegal migrant and gun runner, who is trying to make a new beginning. When he arrives in London, The dead rise and consume the living. But, can Vilhelm escape the bloodbath?

We're really stoked to be able to support Simpson and Avery and think they've got some real talent.

Watch the short horror film, Plague, in it's entirety after the break.

Very, very well done! The actor playing the main character is superb in portraying his fears! The shock effects are very convincing especially when the zombie is shot in the head! Bravo! Now a full movie!

I really liked the character build. dialog always makes a film better, even if it s self dialog, it really draws you deeper into the story. flashy effects only hold a movie if it has great writing and plot. I dont believe this was very original but a still great film that can stand on its own.
