CGiii Comment

Meat-eating zombies in a gay sauna...so, what's new?

There's actually a serious message lurking behind the silliness...or, are we reading too much into it?

Whatever...it will leave you with a great big smile smeared across your face.

Pretty damn good.

SAUNA THE DEAD - A FAIRY TALE from Tom Frederic on Vimeo.

The(ir) Blurb...

A fable in the vein of A Christmas Carol, set in a gay sauna, with zombies. Jacob is a jaded narcissist who stalks the bathhouse halls looking for his next hookup. When he finds himself in the midst of a zombie outbreak, his survival may depend on the one thing he didn't come there for: a human connection.
