Brutal short about the futility of surviving a zombie apocalypse

If you're seriously jonesing for The Walking Dead, the short film Perished might just hold you until tonight. A lone survivor must cope with his terror if he wants to avoid starvation among the zombies.

Stefan A. Radanovich and Aaron McCann wrote, directed, and produced Perished, which showed last year at SXSW. It's a pretty gruesome short, one that touches on the madness and frustration of being alone in the face of constant blood-and-guts danger, and it ultimately asks: Is there a point in trying to survive?
