CINETRANGE.COM

A review about short films screened during the European Fantastic Film Festival in Strasbourg, on the website Cinetrange.com. A part concerns CABINE OF THE DEAD :

Cabine of the dead, de Vincent Templement évoque une énième invasion de zombies, sur le ton de l’humour cette fois. Harcelé par des créatures en manque de chair humaine, un homme se retrouve piégé dans une cabine téléphonique. Il appelle alors toutes ses connaissances pour tenter de trouver de l’aide. Mais il est certainement déjà trop tard. L’humour fonctionne plutôt bien grâce au décalage entre la situation d’extrême danger d’une invasion zombiesque et les réactions banales des différents amis et proches du personnage principal. Encore des zombies mais quand le scénario et les dialogues font preuve d’originalité, ça passe bien !”

ARTVOICE.COM

A review about short films screened during the Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival in the state of New York, on the website Artvoice.com. A part concerns CABINE OF THE DEAD :

“THE FAMILIAR and CABINE OF THE DEAD — As long as we’re talking about comedy, these two short films are good enough to build a visit around even if you’re indifferent to the rest of the program. The first is a Canadian two-reeler about a vampire aficionado who gets hired as a bloodsucker’s assistant, only to discover that it’s not the glamorous career he was anticipating. The second is a French entry about a businessman stuck in a phone booth and trying to call for help as he’s surrounded by zombies. Both look like test reels for prospective feature films that I’d love to see.”

Article on the progress of the Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival,  in the state of New York, on the website Bloodsprayer.com. A part concerns CABINE OF THE DEAD :

“After a short break came the French short film CABINE OF THE DEAD from writer/director Vincent Templement, chronicling a man’s struggle to survive inside a phone booth surrounded by the living dead.  Only 8 minutes long, it nevertheless reveled in an Ionesco-esque sense of the absurd.”

Article written by Brian, a passionated horror films blogger,  about the shorts films screened during the Screamfest Horror Film Festival in Los Angeles, on the blog Horror-movie-a-day.blogspot.com. CABINE OF THE DEAD receives a very nice review :

“Vincent Templement’s amusing zombie short was one of the better zombie entries of the festival (there were many), due to expert execution of a simple premise: you’re trapped in a phone booth and everyone you call is worthless. The climax gets a bit drawn out, but it’s a charmer, and features one of the best sight gags in a zom-com ever (one that, if nothing else, proves once and for all that slow zombies pave the way to more creativity).”

28DAYSLATERANALYSIS.COM

Little article about CABINE OF THE DEAD, written by Michael Allen on his website dedicated to horror movies 28dayslateranalysis.com. His review also appears on the Imdb movie’s page :

Cabine of the Dead is a short French language film of ten minutes, which is currently setting up for a showing at the Horror Society Film Festival. Shot in France, the film will show October 23rd at the mentioned festival. This reviewer recently screened a copy of the film and the pitfalls of being in a zombie apocalypsePress are quite funny. Patrick (Richard Keep) is a man who fights off the dead with plexiglass and four secure walls. The phone boothphones those closest to him for help. But how much help can one offer when they are also being attacked by the undead?

This film was enjoyable to watch and there are some John Carpenter stylings early in the show. Think only offers protection for so long however, as Patrick Escape from New York in music and cinematography. The show starts tonight for folks in Chigaco, IL and those in attendance are sure to have a good time watching this film, too!”

A short review written by Frédéric Wullschleger for the website Abusdecine.com, after its screening during the International Fantastic Film Festival in Gérardmer :

“Poursuivi par des zombies, un quidam se réfugie dans une cabine téléphonique et tente de joindre ses proches. Une merveille de comédie aux dialogues savoureux, aux maquillages crédibles et à la chute joyeusement absurde. Comme quoi, on peut faire du délire maîtrisé et innover, même légèrement, sur un sujet vieux comme le monde. Bonne surprise.”

“Un excellent court métrage, sur les zombies, plutôt bien amené. A voir de toute urgence. Mon outsider pour le Grand Prix.”

SCIFI-UNIVERSE.COM

“Si l’image s’avère très travaillée et que l’histoire s’oriente vers une comédie horrifique efficace, il n’en reste pas moins qu’il s’agit d’un énième film de zombies.”

MADGIRLWORLD.CANALBLOG.COM

“Drôle et léger, il colle parfaitement aux codes du genre, tout en s’autorisant à les retourner dans tous les sens pour nous faire rire. Pas mal du tout pour un court métrage, c’est drôle, pas trop mal fichu avec des bonnes idées tout en restant cohérent et sensé. Une affaire à suivre donc.”

CINETRANGE.COM

“Déjà vu au FEFFS pour ma part, cette variation autour de l’invasion de zombies (un homme s’enferme dans une cabine téléphonique cerné par les morts-vivants et appelle au secours toutes les personnes qu’il connait) est foncièrement drôle, tant les réactions et discussions “normales” de la galerie de personnage apparaissent en complet décalage avec la menace exceptionnelle que représentent les zombies. C’est rythmé, bien filmé, amusant. Sympa.”

ZONAFREAK.NET

A review of the film on the website Zonafreak.net, after the Buenos Aires International Festival Rojo Sangre :

“Un corto zombiesco de los grosos, de los que tienen toda la carne en el asador (con un presupuesto interesante) y un relato intenso que no se pierde en los efectos de maquillaje o en el jueguito del zombie come cerebros y nada más. Si viste alguna de las Plaga Zombie, sabés de lo que hablamos.”

The film is mentioned in an article  on the Deep Fried Film Festival :

“Cabine of the Dead, a French zombie short, is both beautiful and chilling.”

CAMPBLOOD.ORG

Nice review on the website Campblood.org, after the Shriekfest Horror/Scifi Film Festival :

“This was my pick for best of (short) show. It was quick, atmospheric, foreign, slightly absurd, fun, and was spectacularly made. I’m not even a zombie person but the idea about of being stuck in a cabine (phone booth) with zombie creatures around you clawing to get in, deciding who to call, is a great idea for a short film. It didn’t star Colin Farrell being terrorized by a sniper in one place through Joel Schumacher’s eyes, no, but it does have French zombies and great make-up. Take note of this kid, Hollywood!”

Review

 

 

FILMSPONGE.COM

“Cabine of the Dead is a great short from France directed by Vincent Templement.  A man finds himself stuck in a telephone booth on the same night the dead return to life.  The mix of intense gore with clever humor reminded me of La Horde.  By the way, do people still actually use phone booths in Europe?”

Review

 

 

HY-SE-SY-SE.COM

“Nothing like horror to pull out the stereotypes. This happened in a funny way in Cabine of the Dead, a French movie directed by Vincent Templement. A man finds himself chased by zombies in a city-scape and shuts himself up in a phone booth from where he tries to call the police, his best friend and even his mother in turn. Things don’t go too smoothly. But it’s hilarious because the waiting time for the emergency call to the idiomatic 911 gets longer and longer. The emotion? More like the hum-drum of frustration and fatigue than true horror. The message being a petty but universal “fear and loathing” of poor service.”

Review

 

 

ZOMBIECATPRODUCTIONS.COM

“This film was funny and had great zombie makeup. It was short and sweet and fun and not a bad way to start the film festival off. Just one more short about what real people’s reaction would be to a zombie invasion.”

Review

“Though this short was a little predictable, it was very well-executed and satisfying to watch. Sometimes the best ideas are the obvious ones.”

SONOFCELLULOID1.BLOGSPOT.COM

Cabine of the Dead – This 9 minute French short about a man trapped in a phone booth surrounded by the living dead, desperately calling his friends and family.Not an enviable position at all.The acting was good, the zombie makeup was very good, some of the shots of him in the phone booth with the zombies looking through the glass were killer, and some moments were downright hilarious.”

Review


 

SHEWOLF-MANCHESTER.BLOGSPOT.COM

« The production values and acting were excellent, and the basic idea (though not completely original) was compelling. »

Review

 

 

DISTURBINGFILMS.COM

« Cabine of the Dead is a French short illustrating several people’s reactions to zombies running amok in the streets. While being pursued, the protagonist becomes trapped in a fully operational phone booth with a pocket full of coins. As the undead (presumably) gather around his booth, he dials family and friends in search of help.
Though the film holds a creepy tone throughout, one cannot deny the dark comedic elements found in the general stupidity of people. The camera work is solid and the production quality is wonderful (this is generally the make or break point for zombie shorts). The conclusion will certainly make the audience chuckle and appreciate the concept of irony. »

CINEALLIANCE.FR

« Le très bon court métrage Cabine of the dead réalisé par Vincent Templement que nous avions vu lors du 18ème festival International du film fantastique de Gérardmer 2011 est enfin visible en ligne ! Cabine of the dead est comique, gore et génial. Le spectateur ne s’ennuie jamais ! »

DEVILDEAD.COM

« Cabine of the dead s’est emparé du Prix Karma. Ce n’est d’ailleurs pas volé puisque le court-métrage de Vincent Templement est une petite perle d’écriture. Un homme se retrouve assiégé à l’intérieur d’une cabine téléphonique par des morts-vivants. Une situation qui, de prime abord, ne laisse pas beaucoup d’options mais qui a été ici exploitée de manière très astucieuse pour un résultat tragi-comique plutôt goûteux ! »
