When I first saw the title for this film, I thought it was going to be a zombie parody movie that was probably going to be pretty non-pc and offensive to the deaf community. Boy was I wrong! This is not a comedy or spoof movie by any means. In fact, DAWN OF THE DEAF is one of the best short films I have ever seen! Here is the basic plot from the film's official website:
When a strange sound wipes out the hearing population, a small group of Deaf people must band together to survive.
I had no idea what to expect when I watched this film, but what I got was one of the most entertaining 12 minutes I have seen in a long time. The film is brilliant and definitely makes me want to see more.
The film was directed by Rob Savage, and Mr. Savage, if you're reading this, I really hope that you are considering making this into a feature length film!
Watch the film below and then leave a comment to let me know what you think!
