'Tofu: The Vegan Zombie' is the least offensive zombie movie ever made
You've heard the expression "Tofu for brains?" Well, you should've.
That's the anchor and premise of Zombie Dearest, an animated short starring Tofu: The Vegan Zombie.
This Florida-filmed farce (computer-assisted 3-D animation) from Lee Stringer pops a few funny sight gags (a Peter Lorre impersonation, a Shining homage) and cultural zingers (Mormon-ish missionaries are frightened) into its eight minutes. A hit on YouTube, this comedy is about a tofu-brained young boy, his chatty monkey sidekick, a Goth teen girl and Tofu's dead, um, mummy.
Well-animated, a few jokes shy of a scream, it's the least offensive zombie movie ever.
Screening as part of the shorts program 5, "Animated Shorts": Wednesday, April 2, 7 p.m. – 8:50 p.m. at Enzian; Friday, April 4, 7:45 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at Regal
