Absolutely Magnificent

To Save One's Self is a fantastic short film. It falls into one of my favorite types of zombie story--a strong character study. It's fascinating to see someone whose determination not to fight served him well in life. But now that it's the zombie apocalypse, can he make an adjustment to a much different way of life. The zombies appear at a different times throughout the films running time, but the focus stays on this man. The make-up and blood and gore are very well done. The ending is incredibly powerful one, also raising a lot of thorny questions. To Save One's Self is an incredible movie. I give To Save One's Self a rating of 9 out of 10.
