Congratulations to the cast of UNLUCKY GIRL! Three awards at the Tabloid Witch Awards! Best Comedic Horror Short as Tara Strand winds best actress and Chris Baer wins for Best Make-Up Effects.
The festival had this to say about the film:
Unlucky Girl is more than a zombie film. It has resplendent cinematography. It has a theme. It has heart. And it has a strong performance by lead actress Tara Strand.
Gene Blalock's images alternate from cold sepia tones (Dianne's zombie existence), to bright primary colors (her pre-zombie life), to black & white (her dreams).
Beautiful to watch, Unlucky Girl also explores women's desires to look beautiful. Upon turning into a zombie, Dianne hunts not for human flesh, but for a beauty salon. Why not, when people react with such -- not fear, but disgust -- upon seeing her hideously rotting face? If Dianne sounds shallow or silly (doesn't she have bigger problems than her looks?), Strand's performance inspires sympathy for Dianne, giving this film its heart.
