No matter how many times horror fans claim that the zombie sub-genre is oversaturated and unoriginal these days, a filmmaker always comes along and proves everyone wrong with a unique and exciting idea. Here's the perfect example.
Writer-director Carl Timms' award-winning zombie short Still premiered on YouTube today and it features a truly original concept: how do you survive in a zombie apocalypse when your only ability is standing very, very still?
See our a living statue entertainer hero is caught up in the middle of a zombie outbreak. He freezes in fear whilst everyone around him dies at the hands of the attacking zombie horde. Left alone in a large open square surrounded on all sides with only his unique ability to save him, he must work out a way to survive.
The short also features amazing practical special effects by Stuart Conran, who lent his talents to so many fan favorites, including Shaun of the Dead, Braindead/Dead Alive, Cockneys vs Zombies, and The Descent!
