Could there be anything worse than working on New Year’s Eve? Yes: that while you’re working, the Zombie Apocalypse takes place. And that’s exactly what happens to the main character in Stalled, a poor janitor who is replacing light bulbs while everyone else is getting drunk and celebrating the New Year. His situation gets even worse when he has to take on an army of the living dead while he’s trapped in a woman’s toilet.
His debut, Freak Out (04), was all the rage among low-budget horror (and comedy) lovers. After making short films like Absence (11) or Hit/Run (11), Stalled should confirm him as a filmmaker to keep in mind.
