review by
Mike Haberfelner

Since news of a zombie outbreak might hurt the economy, and worse still scare sponsors away, news anchors Hunt Foster (Alexander Fernando) and Christina Moray (Rachel Brownstein) of the Hunt and Christina Show are in a bit of a dilemma of how to address the subject - in easily digestible chunks between commercial breaks of course. But it stands to reason whether inviting Victoria Winkelhauser (Lynn Lowry), CEO of Troxadil Inc., the company responsible for the (alleged) zombie outbreak, cocky zombie hunter Jake Reynolds (Paul Sutton) and his pet zombie Lulu (Martina McClements) to a discussion round was the smartest of ideas, as in this show not only opinions clash ...

 

An ambitious little short shot in Yorkshire and Essex, England, UK, Talk of the Dead is ultimately to serve as a launch pad for the even more ambitious feature There's No Such Thing as Zombies, which this short is to be edited into in a novel way.

Now since I'm personally involved with this project as writer and producer, I saw it only fitting to invite a guest reviewer to give her two Cent in my stead ...

 

Guest review by Dawn Hills:

Talk of the Dead is a very funny short that keeps you entertained throughout. Lynn Lowry was perfectly cast has hard nosed Victoria, her characterisation was spot on! I enjoyed all the different adverts for the drug and they worked well to add humour to the piece. Everyone acted brilliantly, from the small roles to the leads! Paul Sutton was very good as the zombie keeper showing us his pet zombie! The dialogue was very funny in places and that's credit to Michael Haberfelner's witty script! Overall the film had flow to it. Credit must go to the makeup artists who made the zombies look really realistic! The use of gore was not over-the-top, too, and didn't take away from the action on screen. I think if it had been a bloodbath it would not have worked as well. I thought the performances from the newscasters Alexander Fernando and Christina Moray Rachel Brownstein were brilliant and showed no matter what happens on live TV, the show must go on! Loved the captions on screen to go with what was happening with the newscasters! Overall everyone involved should be proud of making a funny entertaining short! After watching this film, can you really say "there is no such thing as zombies"???
