In the tradition of informational videos shown across American elementary school classrooms nation-wide in the 1950s, comes Team Unicorn’s take on the over-parodied subject. Not only is the 8mm survival guide an over-done topic, but this film also contains the “rare” pop culture antagonist known as the zombie. Sarcasm and excessiveness aside, A Very Zombie Holiday scores as fresh and inventive short film, full of hilarity and violence. It’s plays like a missing segment from 2006’s cult phenomenon, Fido. The production values are high (minus the modern kitchen appliances), and that is something that goes a long way with low-budget short films. So if you want to survive a zombie apocalypse this Christmas, read no further, and click “play” on the embedded video below.
