Bitten (UK-2009; short [15 min.]; dir. Mark Fieldhouse and Andrew Cairns) offers viewers the last moments of a man bitten by a zombie. It’s not action, or even horror as such, and is basically one character in a room — but it is effectively done, with a sort of slow, inexorable poignancy. Filmmakers Mark Fieldhouse and Andrew Cairns are collectively known as Echelon Form. From the minimal content on their website, I’m guessing they’re new to the game.
And while we’re at it, the following isn’t so much a completed film as a ghostly moment — though in its 1:30 min running time it packs in more narrative content by way of suggestion than many full-length films. Very well done, I thought. It’s called Project “Ghost” by JONGJUNAN.
