Years ago, Mike Smith was one of Corin Hardy's school pals, who ran around the Sussex countryside making zombie movies on Super 8mm. Well, during the summer Mike picked up the old Super 8 again, got the gang back together, and made another blood-spattered zombie epic.

It's the video for his own band Piney Gir's Oh Lies: make-up FX was done by David Lupton (using tissue paper, latex & paint); Mike's brother Joe wrangled the zombie horde, and Corin was on hand to shout encouragement during the shoot (once again in Lewes old ruins and railway, the locations of their original movies) and then as editor of the vid.

"Amazingly and under almost Dogme rules, Mike only bought three rolls of Super 8 film - the absolute limit of what we'd use in the old days," Corin reveals. "So my edit was to be done using only approx 11.5 minutes of footage! Screw shooting hours on end, on HD... I felt very proud of Mike & his gang of intrepid, well up for it zombies, and Piney Gir herself who plays the lead archeologist..."

And of course low budget horror on small gauge film is always the best sort to be enjoyed on Halloween...
