They're Climbing A Stairway To . . . A Great Short Film

Ascension turned out to be one of those great things. . . an excellent zombie short. It's nice to see films that star older individuals once in awhile. The pace of Ascension is deliberate and it doesn't rush things. Not that there isn't a lot of tension in the film. In fact, there's tons of it and the slower pace adds to that tension as viewers wait for the inevitable other shoe to drop. The make-up for the zombies when they appear is very well done. Silent Studios, who did the make-up, sure as hell know what they are doing. The ending is at once both memorable, bitter and tragic. Ascension compares well to an excellent episode of The Walking Dead. Ascension merits a rating of 9 out of 10.
