A Short Mission: Still
Are you sick of Zombies? Or do they still scare and excite you? Or do they shuffle along, moaning and groaning?
Whether or not you are fed up with The Walking Dead and everything Z, I can guarantee that this small web series will ignite some spark back into the lifeless corpses of the genre.
Still is a web series with a bite and although it follows a lot of tropes, it really is the set up that draws you in. Still is about an unknown infection that takes the small town over and it is up to the residents who are still alive, to keep their status of not being dead. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take long for our heroes to start getting infected themselves and the race for survival is on.
Director Jonathon Holbrook really does something special with this series even if it wobbles and drags on for the first couple of episodes. True, it does take a while for Still to really kick in but when it revs up, it truly does. Our characters are likeable heroes and they are acted well from players such as Michelle Stahl as Jane or Joseph R Porter as Hank. Frankly, this is a more polished and glittering production that does more for smaller web-series and the genre than most do.
Holbrook really works at bringing the situation to some degree of realism. As it increasingly becomes claustrophobic, the fear intensifies and the tension mounts. Drawing you in slowly, the series begins to gain some weight. It creeps on you; soon you’ll want to look away feel it crawl under your skin. But that is the brilliance of it, because as soon as that happens, you may not want to look away.
