Wow. I see why this won short of the year. What a fantastic job blending so many sources together. A lot of mashups, even really good ones suffer just slightly from the characters not interacting directly. It's almost an uncanny valley of movie characters. This, on the other hand, excels. I never felt like we were looking at different stuff. Particularly the grabbing of the leg in the duct and the shot that pans from our heroes straight to the zombies. Little touches like that make the blend infinitely better. With so many sources, it's a miracle that it's almost never noticeable. The zombie jumping on the windshield towards the building could have been color graded slightly more but that two second shot is literally the only criticism I would have. Bravo, phenomenal edit.

What an achievement in fanediting! This short deserves its Annual Fanedit Award for its engrossing narrative and almost seamless visual editing despite coming from a variety of different sources. I highly recommend this work of an editing master.

Incredible how effectively BlueYoda has combined so many different sources!
And what a great/horrible way to end the short! You think the alien movies are dark? Let's wait till you see this version.
Just a fantastic work on this short and probably the best of the entire consecution!

Now that is a cool mesh-up. Mixing Aliens with zombie movies was a great idea and works surprisingly well most of the time. Not all scenes are perfect, some are not fitting too well or not perfectly executed, but overall: awesome work. (4 stars)
