When it comes right down to it, for my own personal tastes, monsters rule the roost. Monsters are the source of my love for the genre, they are the characters I most immediately empathize with, and they always will have a segment in my festival. Beyond that, though, monsters serve one of the greatest purposes in horror storytelling: they serve to explain the unknown, give face to our fear, and find some order in chaos. More than that, since monsters are not real (sorry), they are so well suited to metaphor and interpretation, a key characteristic that lends a layer of depth that one can take or leave. Here there be monsters!!!!

Mateo, an ex-employee of a self-service store has turned into a zombie. His conscience and memories remain intact, therefore, his life has become a deep thought about the meaning of life he would like to share; the only problem, Mateo is no longer able to share what he thinks.

"Excellent zombie short from Mexico that gives an amazingly sympathetic look into the tragic mind of an undead longing for the old world. Fitting for the modern day. A must play." -Sterling Anno
