‘Zombie with a Shotgun’ Web Series Shambles Genre in New Direction

The zombie genre has come a long way. Due to the genre's popularity among fanboys and fangirls, geekdom has witnessed shambling zombies, running zombies, zombies that can learn, and much, much more. Well, a new evolution is taking place in the genre, and a new form of zombie is now emerging: the “hero” zombie!!! With new additions to the genre like Warm Bodies or Zombie Tramp, the walking dead are stepping into the spotlight and claiming the protagonist role for themselves.

And now, one of them has got a shotgun . . .

Zombie with a Shotgun is a web series by filmmaker Hilton Ariel Ruiz and follows the plights of two characters, Aaron and Rachel, trying to make their way through a zombie apocalypse. Aaron has been infected with the zombie virus, but, for some mysterious reason, he has not developed the full zombie condition, retaining his personality and consciousness. As the story unfolds, viewers watch Rachel, Aaron, and his shotgun discover that many in this hellish world don’t care about Aaron’s “special condition” when it comes to eliminating zombie threats. As time passes, they seek to find the answers regarding why Aaron has not succumbed to the zombie virus while others who get infected will never live to see another day.
