Zombeer: Shocking Drunken Bloodsucking Zombies from Beyond the Vat

Zombeer: Shocking Drunken Bloodsucking Zombies from Beyond the Vat

Zombeer is a dark and shocking horror short film by the Dutch director Rob van der Velden, whose previous short horror film won a Dutch Quentin Tarantino Competition.  A drunken brew master has embarrassed the town brewery for the last time and has been exiled to the lonely late-night shift.  But he hasn’t let this setback interrupt his drinking, and he ends up falling head-first into a boiling vat of churning hops.  Now we all know that this would turn any drunk into a raging zombie, right?  And that the now-tainted beer will turn everyone else who drinks this hops-with-a-bite into bloodthirsty zombies also, right?  So now we have an entire town of drunken, bloody-minded zombies.  That’s the plot.  Done.

The Heart is a Metronome: A Father and Son’s Love Despite Themselves

The Heart is a Metronome: A Father and Son’s Love Despite Themselves

Le Coeur est un Métronome (The Heart is a Metronome) is a wonderfully moving four-minute animated short film by the young French filmmaker Jean-Charles Mbotti-Malolo.  What happens when children really grow up and become young men, when they no longer necessarily accept admonishment from their fathers for their misdeeds.  What happens when both adults throw a tantrum and storm out of the house?  Do they fall out of love with each other?

In this touching film, dancing is the high point of the exchanges between the two characters, because it is their only means of communication.  And it is the street dance routines that entertain and mark this movie out as so special, slick, rhythmic movements, quite perfectly animated and indeed choreographed, as father and son perform together almost despite themselves.

While watching this inspiring film, I could not help but reminisce about the legendary Gregory Hines-Sammy Davis Jr. Tap Challenge in the movie Tap.
