WATCH Cargo - Zombie of the Week

Posted by Grey Friday, May 3, 2013

Even in the face of a Zombie Apocalypse, witness the unrelenting love of a father in Cargo, an awesome short film with a most heart-warmingly intriguing (and emotion-wrecking) take on the undead. 

Being a sub-genre of horror, there are many who remained skeptical of the zombie genre with their manifestations in every practicing forms of pop culture today. Yes, even in the face of AMC's wildly successful live-action TV adaptation of the popular comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, The Walking Dead, or Warm Bodies, the crowd-pleasing zom-rom-com (Zombie Romantic Comedy) directed by Jonathan Levine and based on Isaac Marion's popular novel of the same name. To the skeptics, zombies as a genre continue to be viewed as either comic relief, campy b-movies, or the exploitative gorefest despite the best efforts of some of the very best creators out there in the front. So, today we here at The Daily Zombies are pleased to present a short film that turns the genre in an emotional topsy-turvy maneuver in mere six minutes.

Directed by Australian film-makers Ben Howling & Yolanda Ramke, the short film entitled simply as "Cargo" went on to become a Finalist in 2013s Tropfest Short Film Festival. Without further ado, hit the jump to check out this amazing short film. A disclaimer that also serves as a kind warning from us: It is totally capable of turning you into an emotional wreck. 

Here's the official plot synopsis of the short film: 

Stranded in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, a man sets in motion an unlikely plan to protect the precious cargo he carries: his infant daughter.
