Cult horror fans are probably familiar with Night of the Lepus, a 1972 flick in which giant, carnivorous rabbits terrorize a small Arizona town. Now it’s time for their hamster brethren to make their horror movie debut.
In an adorable—and horrifying—new short film, the gang behind YouTube‘s Hello Denizen channel bring zombie hamsters back from the dead. The fuzzy, brain-hungry horde descend on an unsuspecting tiny village where they wreck havoc and find some delicious corpses to munch on.
With a mad scientist and a reference to the Necronomicon, this little horror film has it all. It even pays homage to zombie classics like George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead with close-up shots of the little zombie hamsters crowded around a corpse, chomping down guts.
Of course, this is all movie magic. According to a description on the YouTube page, the critters were really enjoying tofu brains, carrot limbs, and beet guts—OR WERE THEY?!
Maybe our furry friends have developed a disturbing taste for blood after all this Halloween.
