The Indie Corner: Zombie Short ALICE JACOBS IS DEAD Now Available To Stream Or Own

We reviewed Alex Horwitz’ outstanding zombie short Alice Jacobs is Dead just over a year ago (full review here) and screened it at one of our early screening presentations. At the time we hailed it as one of the most captivating enteries in the zombie genre in a long while. It features a pair of heartbreakingly beautiful performances from John La Zar and Adreienne Barbeau as a husband races to find a cure for the zombie strain that infects his wife.

After a year of playing festivals and special screening events (including Chiller Theater for no less of an audience than George Romero and the cast of Dawn of the Dead) the short film is now available for a much larger audience.

You can now order Alice Jacobs is Dead from Amazon or stream the film via IndieFlix. It’s less than $2 for a 30 day window to stream the film and less than $6 to own the DVD. This is cash well spent for one of the best enteries in the zombie genre period.

If you order the DVD bonus features include: writer/director commentary, Carl Kessell (NPR) “Zombie News”, Behind the Scenes Featurette, Deleted Scenes & Trailer


“Wonderfully macabre… a terrific contribution to the literature of the dead.” – George A. Romero. 
“A well made and somber look at how the world ends, not with a bang, but rather with a broken heart and a disembowelment.” – John Landis
