Meow: Zombie Kitten Apocalypse

The cute subtitle “Zombie Kitten Apocalypse” of this superb short video belies the video’s troubling vision of violence, dying, and reanimation. Since George A. Romero’s 1968 Night of the Living dead, zombies have largely been represented as vulnerable only to cerebrocranial trauma. The kitten zombies of Meow are not so easily destroyed, and the video’s serial depiction of suicide-and-reanimation illustrates the despair and sublimity of perfect mortality giving way to flawed immortality.
