Waterborne (2014) is a short Australian horror film written by Ryan Coonan and Richard Barcaricchio and directed by Ryan Coonan for Octopod Films and Veritas Productions with support from Deadpan Films. Starring Martin Blum and Don Bridges. Waterborne is “the world’s first zombie kangaroo film, and a prequel for a feature film currently in development.”

When a local ranger (Martin Bloom) in a small country town finds an unidentified algae overwhelming the water supply, he knows that something’s not right. But it’s not until the sun goes down that he discovers the true extent of the danger – it seems the town is about to experience the effects of a mysterious infection that turns not only humans – but animals, too – into zombies. Australian wildlife has never been so terrifying…

My thoughts… In the U.S., we have zombeavers (here). So, naturally, down under in Australia, they have zombieroos. However, unlike Zombeavers, Waterborne is not a horror comedy. The zombieroo is terrifying, and Waterborne is an effectively scary short horror film!
