New Short Shows Us What It’s Like Becoming Undead

Here at Dread Central we spend a lot of time looking over indie features and short films. It’s become a job in and of itself. Every so often, though, one catches our eye that exhibits a certain quality that warrants us to push it out there your way. Enter the new short film Becoming Undead.

Watch the flick below, and for more hit up the official Becoming Undead website.

From the Press Release
“Becoming Undead is the newest short film from writer/director Ron Purtee of Racine, WI. The premise of the film is footage is found after a zombie outbreak and edited for release to the public. However, this isn’t your usual zombie film. When thinking of a zombie film, one would expect the moans and groans and shuffling feet of the walking dead.

In Becoming Undead, however, there is no audio, sans music for effect. It’s a fresh new approach on the zombie film that will leave you wanting more!”

    I like the premise here and I think the film was shot and staged appropriately. I would suggest to the film makers (if they read these comments) that they go back and remove this score, which doesn’t really fit the piece and actually distracts from the film. I’d recommend going with something low key and relatively simple, akin to the sort of score that was heard in the Blair Witch Project..the sort of tones and odd percussion sounds which linger in the background but do not overpower the scene. I understand and admire what was being done here and it’s nearly spot on..but the music kept taking me out of the experience.
    Another possibility to explore would be to remove the audio altogether and let it play in silence.

    Just some observations from someone who is currently in post production on my own horror short. This is good, and I really think that with a more appropriate use of music it could be great.
