Would you like to support an ambitious short film project that focuses on the fear of having children? Both Danish Broadcasting (DR), City of Copenhagen and Spies Travel Agency have been running grandiose campaigns like "Sex for Denmark" and "Do it for Mum" to urge young couples to have children much earlier instead of focusing only on their studies and careers. With "Zombabies" we use the horror genre to comment on the grotesque fixation of the great dilemma young people face when they want both children and careers.
The movie above: Our poster with original music composed for the film. It will give you a feeling for the atmosphere of the film.
Zombabies is a horror short film about trust and communication in relationships and about flesh eating zombie babies. A young couple are on a trip with friends. She thinks they have agreed to never have children. He has gradually changed his mind. On the almost deserted Ash Island his wish might come true in the most horrible way imaginable.
Director, Nikolaj Tarp: “Zombabies is a passion project for me and writer/actor Claus Reenberg. We love the horror genre, and this has to be a kick ass horror short, pulling no punches visually. But it has to be more than that. The story deals with the lack of communication between lovers and the life changing decisions we all have to make sooner or later. Zombabies will be fun, scary and hopefully thought provoking to some extent. I am committed to working with a talented crew and cast, who are all to various degrees strong creative contributors in the process of making this film. This will be a team effort, and I hope you will join Zombabies and help us by contributing to our campaign”.
The cast includes a well known name in Gordon Kennedy, famous for his work in the Danish comedy genre, now cast against type in a horror film. Other cast members are Simone Lykke (who can currently be seen in Danish theaters as the female lead of the feature film “Hundeliv”), Morten Hembo (“Steppeulv”, “1864”) and fresh new faces Claus Reenberg, Cecilie Thiim and Teit Samsøe.

I am looking so much forward to composing the score for the Zombabies Movie, which will be my first horror movie as a composer. Quite early in the process I suggested to director Nikolaj Tarp that one option would be to compose for a small musical ensemble based on electric violin, grand piano and a female voice – and fortunately he loved the idea. I strongly believe that arranging for this particular ensemble will allow me to find the right tone for the movie and I am especially thrilled to work with the talented violinist Jens Elfving, whose unique electric violin “Elvari” will color the score in many ways; from romantic, melancholic passages to creepy eerie sounds
We need your help for this
The 4000 kr., which we would love to achieve with this crowdfunding, will finance building the barn where the bloody main scene with the zombie babies will occur. The barn will be build on a sound stage.. We want to build it so we can create the scary environment, where our main characters will stand face to face with a threat they didn’t even know existed.
The funding will be used for special effects makeup, props and other cool stuff used in the film to make it kick ass horror!
Actors and crew are working voluntarily on the film. We are ambitious and are focusing on developing talents and to get an even greater focus on the horror genre in Denmark.
We therefore hope that you would like to help us in succeeding with this project.
What you get
You are going to be a part of a kick ass horror film, you can get your name in the end credit, you can get an executive or associate producer title, DVD/BLU Ray, posters, VIP tickets and just the pleasure of supporting hard working but very lovable filmmakers. We love any support, and we THANK YOU.
Risks and challenges
The film industry is very difficult, and getting your film unded (especially a horror film) has not been easy. In Denmark there is a very small horror film market. But our target audience is both Danish and international.
We have great connections on genre film festivals and we know that there is a bright dark future for this film.
