Adolpho Navarro throws his undead hat into the ring with his short WHEN YOU TURN . . . Presented as captured video as five strangers seek refuge from the living dead, its cinema verite feel would've been more successful with more consistent POV camerawork, less blurriness when the camera moves, and better digital effects (the latter being particularly problematic). There's no story here, just a rapid progression of people (named Shaun, Barbara, Cooper, ad nauseum) of being bitten, turning, and biting the next one in line, though with the level of acting displayed I was quite grateful the entries are restricted to a three-minute time limit. (Since when did zombies acquire bad Karloff impersonations?)
Although it replicates the DIARY OF THE DEAD feel, its cutesy-clever gags and amateurish performances prevent it from being more than a slight gimmick.
