REVIEW: Just A Car Crash Away

This short zombie flick is brought to you buy DeusExMachina Studio. After a terrible car crash leaving one girl dead (she seems to have flown through the windshield), the lone survivor is desperately trying to hide from the hoard of zombies on the other side of the car. Luckily, it’s the car that is protecting her… for now. I liked this short; it has beautiful photography that gave it this otherworldly experimental feel to it. The description says that the makeup took 3 hours to do, and if that’s true… it shows. The zombies felt real; they had flesh peeling off of their cheeks and solid white eyes. But perhaps the greatest feat this movie accomplishes is the performances, not only by the zombies, but buy the one girl who is trying to hide from them. She has no lines (there is no dialogue at all in the movie) so she is tasked with conveying emotion through facial and body language, and she did a wonderful job. If you are in the mood for a quick zombie short, I recommend this.
