The Undeading


"The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada teams up with filmmaker Vincenzo Natali (SPLICE, CUBE) to produce The Undeading, a smart and inventive short about spreading the importance of hands-on CPR, set against the backdrop of a zombie apocalypse."

I think this is fantastic! Topical horror and humor come together to help a great cause. The edits are great and the effects and direction are grand. They have some nice behind the scenes footage and making of material on their site as well.

 I think this is a great use of the drastically overplayed zombie genre to serve good instead of the evils of corporate greed and film studio pockets! :)


  1. Good advert made from a tired cringe worthy genre.

    1. Sadly, I tend to agree with you. I'm a huge zombie fan, but it's being beaten like an undying horse. :) Car commercials, TV shows, teen movies....

      I miss the days of the brutal, Italian zombie films.
      Oh wellz....this too shall pass.
