Although zombies can be pretty cool, I definitely would never want to be one. There’s absolutely no perks to being a zombie, unlike a vampire or ghost, and all you crave is brains. In the words of Jud from Pet Sematary, “Sometimes Dead is Better.”
In the zombie tale Anna, a recent victim of the undead struggles with her new lifestyle of craving brains and her dire need to purge. The short is created by Matthew and Kevin Forte of Forte Films Entertainment and stars Brandi Bravo as Anna.
The short has a run-time just under 5 minutes, yet left me completely heartbroken. It’s such a uniquely horrifying story. As someone who has struggled with an eating disorder before, I could relate to Anna’s pain. She commits suicide in hopes to escape from the pain of her bulimia, but fate had other plans. Now she’s undead, binging on brains, purging, and left completely alone. It’s tragic.
The special effects and makeup are outstanding in Anna. Some of the best I’ve ever seen in a horror short before and definitely make the story stand out above others. It was a rich in detail from the decaying of her body to the guts and gore.
I think the Forte brothers have a bright future ahead of them and I can’t wait to watch more from them. I’ve seen what they can do with Anna and I’m sure it’s only going to get better!
