A woman bitten by a zombie descends into madness, as the transformation overtakes her body and mind.
A woman bitten by a zombie is trapped in a bathroom and with the choice between death and becoming the undead.
A zombie movie with more heart than brains…. On a lonely Valentine’s eve, a lovesick teenager accidentally brings his old girlfriend back from the dead. But will his everlasting love be quite as undying now she’s deceased?
A young mortician will give his heart away to find true love. A whimsical, gothic bedtime story filled with love, loss, taxidermy, Kung fu, and biker werewolves.

- SUBMIT YOUR FILM NOW! (the earlier the better!)
Have a short film, feature-length movie, or music video that features Zombies, Vampires, Mummies, Ghosts, or other members of the Undead? Send it our way through FilmFreeway! FilmFreeway is the modern, slick, platform for submitting movies to all kinds of festivals. FilmFreeway features Crystal-clear high-def on-line screeners (not the usual dark, blocky, low-res screeners that other service uses) with streamlined submissions to currently over 700 festivals (including nearly 150 festivals that feature horror films). It's easy to use, free to sign up, integrates with your password-protected screener on Vimeo or YouTube (or you can upload directly), and there is no extra charge for using on-line screeners (the other guys charge $3 per film, per festival submission for on-line screeners, and they suck)... it's built right in, which will save you a lot of dough. Plus, their pricing is much better for festivals, which means that we can charge smaller fees because we don't have to pay off massive "marketing" packages. It is literally built around the things we've all wanted from those other guys for years. We're proud to use FilmFreeway for our submission process, and, as a filmmaker, you'll love using it. It's so much easier.

While we loved every single one of the films we played at Zompire (took place Oct 4-5 at the Clinton St. Theater), we made some very very hard choices and gave awards in four categories:
- The Horde Award - Our Audience Choice Award, chosen by blind ballot at the end of the festival by our attendees.
- The Abby Normal Award - Chosen by our jury for films that showcase a fresh perspective or other innovation.
- Le Gran' Zombi - Awarded for overall excellence in Independent film.
- Tombe D'Or - Awarded to the top film that best exemplifies the mission of Zompire.
To find out who won (and for the sake of suspense), watch our Awards video below:
We'll post the results later, for the sake of posterity. Physical awards will be completed and shipped in the next 1-2 weeks, and laurels will be mailed to awarded filmmakers shortly.
See you next year!
