Director Stephen Vitale made a lovely Star Wars fan film called Hoshino a few years ago; his latest proof of concept project, Sword of the Dead, is a samurai zombie film he describes as “Yojimbo meets 28 Days Later,” rendered in crisp black-and-white with a synth score that pays homage to John Carpenter. If that sounds awesome, that’s because it is. Check out the behind-the-scenes vid here.
