Zombie lore has changed quite a bit since the first Night Of The Living Dead film, and zombies have gone from being strictly undead eating machines to humans afflicted with a life-altering virus.
That means if and when a cure is found for their condition zombies may be able to rejoin human society, that is, if they're no longer seen as a threat:
In the aftermath of a zombie outbreak, zombies are cured and exiled to secluded camps. There has been talk about rehabilitating post-zombies back into society. Steve, the journalist reporting on the case, thinks the zombies still pose a threat to society. He ventures into one of these camps to prove to the world that rehabilitation is out the question.
"Less Than Human" was created by a team of students at The Animation Workshop in Denmark, and it has certainly left me hungry to see more!
