‘Rotting Hill’ Proves that Love Can Transcend a Zombie Apocalypse

Sure, some people might prefer a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers in celebration of Valentine’s Day but here around the clubhouse we like to zag when other zig and lucky for us a bunch of students from the Media Design School in New Zealand share our perspective. Entitled ROTTING HILL, the short is a spoof of Notting Hill (at least in title) with a good blend of gross-out humor and sappy romance that ends with the ultimate cockblock… literally.

According to James Cunningham (3D Course Leader), the film took 12 weeks to complete and incorporates 22 high-end CGI graphics and visual effects shots.

It’s a love story, with a bit of a twist. I think deep down, we all want to love and be loved. Zombies used to be humans too, so I guess the idea behind the film is why would these emotions go away just because you’re a reanimated corpse?
