A light-hearted take on a world that has endured a zombie outbreak.


Alexander McKee’s short horror comedy offers a satirical twist on a world that has recently overcome a zombie outbreak. Kimberly Currin leads the cast with a charismatic performance as Daphne, the host of a lifestyle DIY TV show who now provides tips on managing and dealing with leftover “contagion”. Despite its short runtime, the film manages to engage viewers with its humorous approach and refusal to take itself too seriously.

Samantha Labrecque’s cinematography is well-crafted, showcasing neat framing that adds to the overall visual appeal of the film. The high standard of delivery is evident throughout, with attention to detail and production value.

One minor drawback is the short runtime, as it leaves viewers craving a deeper exploration of the post-outbreak world and its implications. However, the narrative tries to compensate for this with its witty and funny moments, keeping the audience entertained throughout.

The performances in the film are commendable, with Kimberly Currin’s portrayal of Daphne being particularly noteworthy. Her charismatic presence and comedic timing contribute to the film’s overall success.

In conclusion, McKee’s comedy delivers an engaging and humorous take on a post-zombie outbreak world.

Funny and entertaining, this short film is a delightful watch for those looking for a light-hearted take on the horror genre.
