I’m absolutely amazed at the amount of horror out there. It seems as if indie features and shorts are everywhere, and so many of you guys are doing amazing work. At Dread Central we do our best to get the word out when we stumble upon an impressive piece that might otherwise fly under your radar. With that in mind, say hello to Home.
Written and directed by Cameron McCulloch, Home stars Jamie McDowell as a woman in an isolated homestead in the Australian bush surrounded by the undead. Shot over the course of two weekends (3-1/2 days), the film was made for about $2,000 but has the professional look of a much more expensive production.
Billed as a “RomZom” (that’s romantic zombie film), Home is truly a brilliant piece of filmmaking. The fact that work of this quality was done on that budget and schedule is nothing short of amazing. It took first prize at the Made in Melbourne Film Festival in December of 2010 and Best Short in the Night of Horror Short Film Festival this year. Anthon Ikram Umit is also featured prominently in the film
But don’t take my word for it. Do yourself a favor, scroll down and check this short film out. It’s just over 11 minutes long. And if you don’t have 11 minutes right now, bookmark this page and come back when you do. This one is worth your time.
