Zombies have feelings too. They may be flesh-hungry monsters out to eat your brains out, but on the inside they also have feelings for their long-lost loved ones… The same long-lost loved ones they probably have. torn and eaten when they became a zombie, but they still miss them! Emotions always matter. I think? A Father’s Day is a zombie short that originally premiered in 2016 at film festivals and debuted online in 2018. Even years later, it’s still fantastic and worth watching. Unexpectedly found with his daughter among the ruins of the world as they knew it, a father is determined to make this day special, even though they are already dead. Featuring Garth Maunder and gibson hazelnut. Father’s performance in this regard is outstanding, much better than it should be, but that’s part of what makes it so memorable. The zombie makeup is also top notch and the final blow is pretty darn good. This director should already make feature films.
