Here at 365horror i like nothing better than supporting independent film making. 2 Hours is a short zombie fest created by Michael Ballif. Read his statement below and give the film a view, you won’t regret it. Then tell your friends and lets help this guy get some publicity.
A nameless survivor is bitten and infected with the virus, a beautiful gift to the world. With only 2 HOURS to find the missing survivors, he must move quickly before the virus spreads too far.
This no-budget short film was shot entirely on a single Canon T2i with only two lenses and a skeleton crew of just three people. The film was made over the course of about two years.

‘After two years of hard work, I have finally completed production on my no-budget, independent horror short film called 2 HOURS, and wanted to share it with you. You can see the film in its entirety here:
The entire film was shot on a cheap Canon T2i DSLR, which retails for around $500. The circumstances for the creation of 2 HOURS were as indie as it gets, with just a tiny skeleton crew of two other people helping me with this project.
I have poured my heart and soul into the making of this film, and have been doing everything in my power to promote the film in efforts to get it seen by the right people. I am coming to you because I have been working day and night to find the audience I believe is just waiting to find this film.
If you like what you see, I would truly appreciate anything you may be willing to do to help me spread the word about it.’

This project sounds really cool. Give it a look and give it your support!
It’s 1984. The five survivors, whose experiences inspired the five scariest movies of all time, are undergoing experimental treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. It went horribly wrong.
You think you know their stories.
You think you know what happened.
The movies got it all wrong.
The truth is much more terrifying.
