Short Film: Rotting Hill (New Zealand, 2012)

Ah! True love! How we all hope to have it. And as this little short reveals, you never know when you might finally find it. Here's 5 minutes of zombie horror romance from New Zealand, a country on our bucket list, that manages to reveal that love and romance isn't dead, even if everything else is.
Rotting Hill is one of 12 short films that Auckland-resident James Cunningham, born 1973, has made to date.  It is "a live-action CGI short film from Media Design School's Advanced 3D Productions. The short was produced in 12 weeks and features 22 digital effects shots. [mediadesignschool.com]" 
The actors: the farmer is played by Bruce Hopkins, whom we can only assume is familiar to us because he appeared as Gamling in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002 / trailer) and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003 / trailer). The male romantic lead, named "Garry" according to the imdb, is played by Jason Smith, while the female romantic lead, "Lizzy", is played by Anna Hutchison, recently seen in Wrecker (2015 / trailer) but possibly better known from her appearance in that international hit, The Cabin in the Woods (2012 / trailer).
