Spoiler, a police procedural that takes place post-zombie apocalypse

This here is Spoiler, a nifty nugget of horror made by some special effects creators who worked on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Zodiac. Director Daniel Thron described it to us as "sort of like if Michael Mann stepped into the telepod with a blu-ray of 28 Days Later." (And yes, that is a reference to The Fly.)

We're digging the world-building involved in creating a civilization that's recovered from a zombie outbreak but also lives in constant fear of it. Formidable stuff! Here's a synopsis for this short film:

The zombie apocalypse happened — and we won. But though society has recovered, the threat of infection is always there — and Los Angeles coroner Tommy Rossman is the man they call when things go wrong.
