A freshly turned zombie struggles to navigate the land of the undead, Summer of the Zombies is a dark, horror comedy (a ZOMEDY if you will) that tells an original story through the eyes of its zombie main character. The film is unique in its limited dialogue and dependence upon visual storytelling. Summer of the Zombies was written, directed, and produced by the husband and wife team of Eddie Beasley and Ashleigh Nichols and was the Best Shorter Film Winner at the Columbia Gorge International Film Festival and an Official Selection at Hollywood Fringe Festival, California International Shorts Festival, Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival and Shriekfest.
