The Collection Volume 5 is coming and this time it is Zombie…

Welcome to The Collective… V.5!

The one of a kind short film collection featuring

10 short films all based on the same theme is back

and this time the dead have taken over.

Out to prove that the zombie genre isn’t over, it’s just overdone,

The Collective V.5 features 10 short films with a

new and interesting take on the undead.

The films range from intimate to insane with each filmmaker

putting their own unique twist on the idea.

The films featured on The Collective V.5

provide something Hollywood hasn’t had in a long time, heart.

These filmmakers stand as proof

that it doesn’t take a huge budget to make a great film,

it only requires a huge imagination.

The Collective and Days of the Dead are working together to shine a light on

the best up and coming independent horror filmmakers in the scene.

Often overlooked by other conventions,

independent and no budget filmmakers are creating the most

interesting and unique films today.

Days of the Dead recognizes this talent and has gone out of its way to prove it.

By providing screenings and discount vendor tables for artists and filmmakers,

they have introduced fans to a whole new crop of talented individuals.

We are proud of this relationship and hope to continue working with Days of

the Dead in the future.


Beginning November 16th 2012 The Collective V.5 will be

available through the websites of the filmmakers involved as

well as many online retailers.

The Dead Things Outside Your Door pt. 1 & 2


Melding together Ec comics, reanimated corpses, black comedy and extreme weather,

The Dead Things Outside Your Door tells the

story of One guy who wants to be left the hell alone, two hillbillies,

a drug pusher and an ex girlfriend who all

find themselves butting heads after the worst extreme weather outbreak in midwest history.

As bad as things are they’re about to get worse when the recently dead start to come back.
