Humans – Uprising
The Short Film – This Campaign
Europe, 1943. As the war rages, Allied forces are attempting to create a serum that will turn ordinary men into super soldiers. So far they have been unsuccessful, with the formula causing horrific side effects for those exposed to it. An elite unit of German paratroopers infiltrates a British facility to steal the serum, inadvertently releasing an epidemic that will change the world forever.
‘Where Eagles Dare’ and ‘Inglorious Bastard’s’ meet ‘Dawn of the Dead.’
The Plan – Background
‘Humans tells the story of a zombie society attacked by the oldest of enemies, Humans.‘
The Humans story starts with this short film in World War II Britain. It charts the rise of the zombie nation and watches an enemy, long since vanquished, return to give the zombies a taste of their own medicine.
Our film is different because the zombies are the protagonists. The Humans are the monsters. How many zombie films treat the arrival of the zombies as an invasion? What is the world like when it is run by zombies? When they have won the war.
