I wish I could say I’ve been a die hard fan of Pittsburgh based web series "Something to be Desired" since its inception, but honestly I hadn’t heard of it until I received an email from Erik Schark pointing me towards their Halloween episode.
Clocking it at 13 minutes, the special finds the cast of fictitious WANT FM DJs defending themselves against a surprise horde of zombies on Halloween night. It features classic undead makeup characterized by the films of the series’ hometown hero, George Romero, a sly combination of charm and wit, a wink at the flying spaghetti montster, and plastic zombie babies.
Do yourself and a fun group of indie filmmakers a favor and give the episode a watch. Then, if you’re like me, give their site a look and watch some more.
Oh, and if you’re in doubt to the episode’s genre roots, they even have promo featuring Lloyd Kaufman!
