Play Dead

Over the years I've had my share of pets. Three dogs; three cats; a dozen or so gerbils; tropical fish; anoles and my very funny (though occasionally very noisy) current pet, Skye. I suspect that most of us, at one time or another, has or has had a pet. And we eventually come to realize that (with the exception of a few of the larger parrot breeds), we will outlive our pets. It's part of life and often how most children first learn to deal with death. 

But what if the Zombie Apocalypse took place tomorrow? What would happen to our beloved non-human family members? Filmmakers Andre and Diego Meza-Valdez attempt to answer that question with their very amusing and just a bit disturbing short film, Play Dead. Set in Miami, Play Dead is a story about survival, camaraderie and why dogs hate cats. 

Enjoy (language and violence may be NSFW):

Personally, I'm sure there are plenty of other food options for the surviving humans.

More, anon.
