Written and Directed by Vincent Templement
Cabine of the Dead is a French short illustrating several people’s reactions to zombies running amok in the streets. While being pursued, the protagonist becomes trapped in a fully operational phone booth with a pocket full of coins. As the undead (presumably) gather around his booth, he dials family and friends in search of help.
Though the film holds a creepy tone throughout, one cannot deny the dark comedic elements found in the general stupidity of people. The camera work is solid and the production quality is wonderful (this is generally the make or break point for zombie shorts). The conclusion will certainly make the audience chuckle and appreciate the concept of irony.
This film was screened at the 2011 Buried Alive! Film Festival.
