The good news: Danger Word is going into syndication via African American Short Films, where it will tour local TV and cable channels around the country for 90 days. Click HERE every Thursday to see when it might be playing where you live.

The bad news: we have agreed to disable our YouTube link until the end of the run, so you can’t see the full film online until the end of September.

Danger Word was nominated for Best Narrative Short at the BronzeLens Film Festival and Pan African Film Festival in L.A., and it is also a selection of the Pan African Film Festival in Atlanta August 7-10.

The novel it’s based on, DEVIL’S WAKE, has been optioned by Tonya Lewis Lee. (See our previous post!) 

Check back here for Danger Word’s relaunch online–just a month before Halloween!

Missed the film? Here’s the trailer. Full film back online September 28th. 

Danger Word is directed by Luchina Fisher. Co-written by Steven Barnes and Tananarive Due.  See our Cast & Crew page to learn more about our great team!


The top zombie short films you should watch right now

We’re very picky about horror movies, but Danger Word is in good company with other zombie shorts on YouTube. Here are the top six zombie short picks you should watch in bite-sized morsels. The best zombie stories are about people, after all. You won’t be disappointed! (More to come! This list will grow. Feel free to suggest other links.)
1–Danger Word. Don’t take our word for it: Geek Tyrant just called Danger Word “a great zombie short” and “fantastic and intense.” www.dangerword.com (Directed by Luchina Fisher. Written by Steven Barnes and Tananarive Due)

2–CargoIf you haven’t seen this zombie short about a man and a baby, watch it now. It doesn’t have 6.1 million views for nothing. As good as it gets, and it’s only 7 minutes long. You’ll want to watch it more than once. Watch it HERE. (Directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke) 

3–Gory Ridge–Parts I & II. This is a well-done, touching and realistic mockumentary in the style of The History Channel. What World War Z looked like in your head while you were reading the novel. Riveting. Watch it HERE. (Directed by Alek Gearhart) 

4–Infected. A young man is pushed to the brink in his quest to survive. Stylish and well-acted. Watch it HERE. (Written and directed by Mikey D’Amico) 

5– Perished. This looks like a lost chapter from 28 Days Later. For hard-core zombie lovers. Mature content. Watch it HERE. (Written and directed by Stefan A. Radanovich and Aaron McCann) 

6–Prey. Solid premise and acting. And no, the zombies aren’t shamblers. They’re runners. Watch it HERE. (Directed by Cal O’Connell)
