Animation: It Was a Dark and Silly Night

It's not easy to find kind-friendly zombie media. For a reason that will never be explained, kids don't generally like the idea of rotting corpses. Go figure.

However, below you can watch a short animated movie directed by Steven-Charles Jaffe and illustrated by The New Yorker's Gahan Wilson. The video is kid friendly (i.e. no brain eating) and adapted from a comic by Neil Gaiman that appeared in the book It Was a Dark and Silly Night. In the video, a group of kids just want to find a place to party. When they choose a graveyard, they get some unexpected party crashers.
