It's dogs vs. zombies in awesome new apocalyptic short

From George Romero's numerous zombie films to AMC's The Walking Dead, we've explored several angles of a potential zombie apocalypse. But what about the doggies left behind after we're all Walker bait?

Luckily, indie filmmakers Andres and Diego Meza Valdes are here to answer that question, via their surreal new short film Play Dead. Set from the point of view of a pack of dogs, the 18-minute short film was made on a shoestring budget after the team raising $6,000 on crowd-funding service Kickstarter.

The official synopsis is awesome:

A zombie apocalypse unites a ragtag pack of dogs in the ruined streets of Miami. Immune to the epidemic, they must stick together to survive in the midst of ferocious undead and human survivors in this unauthorized sequel to "Homeward Bound." Sit. Stay. Play dead...
Check out the short below, and let us know what you think:
