From the Tropfest Australia short film festival, comes one of their finalists: Cargo–directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke and featuring a mostly wordless performance by Andy Rodoreda.
It is, in a word, brilliant. And I have a sneaking suspicion that it, in seven minutes, will both terrify and move you more than the entirety of the upcoming World War Z film will. This is because Ramke & Co. understand that this subgenre is about the people–not the zombies. Especially not the ridiculous CG rubbery kind of zombies. (Sorry, Brad.)
“Cargo” comes after the jump.
