Hot Chicks and Puppets of the Apocalypse: New Shorts from John Skipp's Bizarro Zombie Feature Rose





Rose from John SkippJohn Skipp has just released some crazy new puppet-packed video shorts from Rose, showcasing adorable machete-juggling, zombie-slaughtering powerhouse Chase McKenna in the title role.

Rose -- think Pee Wee’s Playhouse meets Night of the Living Dead -- is the story of a hot ex-mental patient with a cable access puppet show, who becomes an unlikely hero of the zombie apocalypse.

While the first short, “Please Stand By”, focuses on the undead epidemic, the next two reveal the first on-set glimpses of her show.

“Moral Zombie Conundrum” features Rose with her puppet pals Jesus and Satan, weighing good vs. evil when it comes to dispatching the shambling dead. “Profiles in History” features Rose as Marie Antoinette or something, sharing quality time (and more) with one less fortunate than herself. And you thought zombies were scary!

Taken together,” Skipp says, “you get a much better sense of this world we’re building. Except for the genuinely terrifying parts. We’re getting to that. I swear!

More installments are in store over the coming weeks. And Skipp assures us it’s not going to get less weird. “More puppets. Special guests. Musical numbers. And some hideous, violent death.” Stay tuned for further announcements!

I love puppets I love breasts and I think John Skipp is an amazing writer. Having said that, none of the elements in the posted scenes are coming together and I'm not nearly so amused as I'd like to be.

I hope this project isn't sucking up all of Skipp's writing time as I personally get more enjoyment from his novels.

Additional: After some thought I realize what's not working here, the tone. I think these shorts are trying to be blackly comic but the 'cute' is overwhelming the faint hints of comedy.
