“…a quietly marvellous look at the end of the world from the point of view of the generation after Shaun and co… There’s a deadpan approach taken to the humour throughout that gives the series its own identity and means that the moments of genuine horror have real impact… Zomblogalypse is dark, funny, horifically violent and gloriously silly…”
“…A strong contribution to the subgenre of online series that track roomate tensions in a zombie apocalypse… keeping the cameras rolling to document life’s little foibles and (more to the point) their own staggering ineptness [through] wry deadpan humour.”
Zombie Movie Encyclopedia
“Zomblogalypse is basically a cross between the movie 28 Days Later and the TV series The Office in that it has great moments of suspense as well as skillful, naturalistic (and hilarious) acting.”
“A creative cacophany of wit, brilliant comic timing and amazing makeup effects.”
Marc Price, Director Colin
“Using the tried and true format of 3 friends surviving the zombie apocalypse in an apartment, Zomblogalypse is easily the best of the bunch and currently the most watchable zombie web series running.”
Following the adventures of three inept survivors of a zombie apocalypse in the British city of York, who record their daily activities for a video blog, Zomblogalypse is an entertainment franchise rooted in geek and Internet culture. Originally a zero budget web series, it is now being developed into a feature length film and spin off transmedia projects.
Created and produced by Miles Watts, Tony Hipwell and Hannah Bungard working as MilesTone Films in 2008, the zero budget Zomblogalypse web series, shot on mobile phones and webcams, ran for four seasons of six episodes until 2011.
Championed by genre and geek culture bloggers, magazines and celebrities including SFX, Tom Savini, Charlie Adlard, Marc Price, Dominic Brunt, Al Ewing and Sandeep Parikh, the series has had over half a million views across platforms including YouTube, Dailymotion and Blinkx.
Feature length film
Work began on a feature length film adaptation in 2012 bringing together the original web series creators. The film project was announced publicly with a crowd funding campaign to launch pre-production work. Over a month of fundraising through March and April 2013, the $15k target was received from fans of the web series and early pre-production activities started up in May.
