Social distancing is really changing how I feel while watching films. Is anyone else noticing the same thing? Emotional scenes where people are exchanging hugs with more than 5 people are suddenly more frightening and foreign than ones set in outer space where the 1 surviving character has to fight a deadly mind-controlling fungus.

Now that I’ve been self isolating for… *checks the calendar*… 40 days, how I experience films has changed. So when I watched the short film, “Zombiphosate,” by Les films Guacamole the tone was interesting because I felt my mind shift half-way through from pre-covid thoughts to post-covid thoughts.
Pre-covid is more, “Oh boy, those silly humans are messing with toxic chemicals again, this will be fun to watch.” Post-covid is more like, “F***ing run! They’ll get The Virus all over you!”
Seeing hikers on the trail getting closer than 6 feet…
So given today’s social distancing context, check out the short film by Les films Guacamole. Enjoy it for the B-Horror homage, fear it for the lack of social distancing. And without further ado, I offer you the zombie-tastic creation of Les films Guacamole, “Zombiephosate.”
