Released just in time for Valentine’s Day, check out this beautiful new short from California-based filmmaker Cole Schreiber. A morbid and atmospheric story of love and mortality, it just might be the most romantic zombie tale I’ve seen since Return of the Living Dead 3.

Per Cole’s Vimeo page:

Rest, is the story of a young American solider who dies in WW1 and ninety years later unearths himself from a grave in the European countryside. Shot over the course of a week in Mendocino County, Morongo Valley and New York City, the film is a dark, but beautiful meditation on a wayward soul’s pursuit of peace.

Rest is Schreiber’s first narrative effort. He’s previously contributed to music videos for Department of Eagles and Grizzly Bear. Stream the short below.
