Romance is Alive During the Zombie Apocalypse in the 2011 Short Film, 'Chomp'

Can there still be romance in the zombie apocalypse? Between zombies? According to this delightful award-winning short by Adam and Joe Horton that came out in 2011, the answer is a resounding, "Yes!"

In "Chomp," a lovely zombie girl meets an unsure-footed zombie boy when they find a dead dude. No candles needed at this romantic dinner...they just dig in. When they start eating the same piece of intestine, that spaghetti scene from "Lady and the Tramp" just gets a little less romantic. For dessert? They share one heart. Literally. Did they leave a tip? Sorry.

'Chomp' stars Marc Pickering and Georgina Strawson as the zombies and James Dean as the cadaver (no, the other James Dean). Many thanks to Bloody Disgusting for resurrecting this gem and bringing it to our attention. Enjoy!
