Zombies find true, disgusting love in horrifically delicious film

It's raining zombies everywhere you look these days. But just when you think you've seen it all, here comes something that rattles your headstone to the bloody core. I'd pass on that big spaghetti lunch ... at least until you digest this simple romantic tale of two rotting hearts.

From a Zombieland sequel to AMC's The Walking Dead and Brad Pitt's epic World War Z project, those shuffling brain gobblers have never been more popular, their putrid corpses appearing in videogames, graphic novels and "It's Like Die Hard With Zombies" screenplay pitches floating around Hollywood. (Hey, that's actually not bad.) It's hard to be fresh when the Z-Saturation level is pushing past overkill.

Well, a sick and twisted crew of film students at New Zealand's Media Design School created an instant classic with Rotting Hill, a 4-minute short depicting the inevitable pitfalls of zombie foreplay. It's screening as part of the Incredibly Strange Film Festival and has us drooling for more.

Directed by James Cunningham and written by Guy Hamling, the live-action CGI film comes out of the school's Graduate Diploma of Advanced 3D Productions and delivers 22 disgusting digital effects shots. It should play as a public service warning to the limitations of teen zombie sex. Check out the hilarious love story and feast on this tasty horror treat ...
