Review

Anisha Savan’s short horror film presents an innovative and original take on the zombie genre, exploring the implications of a world where zombies can be rehabilitated to re-enter society. Starring Esheka Varshney as Sadia – a newly-created undead trying to find her place in the world – and Brock Looser as Martha – Sadia’s closest friend.

The narrative is excellently crafted and captivating, with clever subtexts at play regarding class and discrimination, issues reflected best in the character’s execution. Anisha Savan’s technicals do stand out, with amazing production design, make-up, and sound design throwing light to the protagonist character perceptions and help to make the setting and story feel living and vibrant.

Savvy camera work and impressive special effects contribute significantly to bring out a living and breathing narrative, finding a balance between the zombies’ existence and the surrounding economy that ultimately culminates in the film’s blood-curdling finale.

Overall, Anisha Savan’s short horror film is a brilliantly executed and riveting story, built on an intricate world that would be perfect for a feature-length film expansion. Its nuanced take on the zombie genre encapsulates a heartfelt story, offering an intelligent comment on the nature of humanity that’s visual force, with the flow of humanity’s decisions divinely integrated.
