Ah, young love. The air seems clearer. The sun seems brighter. There's a spring in the step. Too bad about the zombie apocalypse.


Jimbo is 13 and can think of only one girl—Sarah Jane. And no matter what stands in his way-bullies, violence, chaos, or zombies-nothing will stop him from finding a way into her world.

  • Critical response

    The film earned mainly positive reviews from critics. MarBelle of short of the week gave film the positive review said "The thing about ILSJ—co-written by Susser and David Michod—is that if you were to strip away the high production values and outlandish world setting, there’d still be at its core a touching age-old story of teen awkwardness in relating to the object of your desire that places our hero Jimbo in the shoes of Kevin Arnold or Dawn Wiener before him, it’s just that their obstacles were slightly less brain hungry." Amber Wilkinson of Eye For Film gave the film four out of five stars and said "With so many zombie features and, indeed, zombie shorts around, its hard to make something that feels new, but by mixing up the trappings of a naturalistic coming of age drama with the horror, this short takes a different tack, breathing life and spirit into the undead." Wesley Morris of said that "Australian suburb where some parentless neighborhood kids torture a zombie. You wait for several minutes for the title to explain itself, which, in its sweet, jokey finale, it does."
