"A zombie apocalypse unites a ragtag pack of dogs in the ruined streets of Miami. Immune to the epidemic, they must stick together to survive in the midst of ferocious undead and human survivors in this unauthorized sequel to Homeward Bound," reads the synopsis for Play Dead.
We can always get behind a twisted Homeward Bound
-related love letter (MJF bulldog fo' life!), and this one was funded via Kickstarter last year. It's interesting to finally see some of these crowd-funded projects start to roll in, as Kickstarter was only two years old when the Play Dead
crew sought help. Directors Andres and Diego Meza Valdes raised a whopping $6,000 for their pet project and wound up with this 18-minute movie that we spotted on website io9
. It's cute, gory and imagines what your pup would do when forced to troll the streets for survival. Throw these guys a bone and watch their movie when you get a moment. You will laugh, you will cry, it will be glorious. Let them know what you make of it in the comments section.
