The Last of Us' grim, fungus-laden post apocalypse is ripe for more storytelling beyond the hit video game - and this short film by Finnish director Mikko Löppönen certainly delivers on nailing the game's intense atmosphere.

There's barely any dialogue in L4ST, but Löppönen's lingering shots of the desolate environments he frames his two survivor protagonists with, as well as some pretty well shot action sequences make for a nerve-wracking eight minutes. Just what you need on a Sunday!
