Review Of "Followed"

Director/Producer James Kicklighter was nice enough to send me a digital copy of his short film “Followed”. This short film is based on the short story by award winning author Will McIntosh.

The film stars  Erryn ArkinEdith Ivey and Abigail de los Reyes. Peter (Arkin) is a college professor who is followed by a young girl. The young girl (Reyes) happens to be a zombie. In the world of Followed zombies are commonplace and are treated as second class citizens. There are people believe zombies should have the same rights as the living and those who don’t.

Peter tries to understand why this zombie is following him. It’s understood that zombies follow people who have something to hide. I don’t want to give to much away. I really enjoyed the film. Followed has a great message and I feel the acting was great. Miss. Reyes did a wonderful job as the zombie girl. Her performance was very nuanced.
