Zombie versus drone: There can be only one

What happens when a drone is pressed into service to battle an attacking zombie? A short video answers that compelling question.

Certain fears are products of our modern society. Both zombies and drones could fall into this category. If you were to fall asleep after watching "The Walking Dead" following a long day of playing with a quadcopter, you might have a dream that looks a lot like the short film "Zombie vs Drone."

The setting is an appropriately desolate location with a bombed-out, graffiti-ridden building. Our protagonist is a woman on the run. Ammo is in short supply, an issue we're all familiar with from watching countless zombie apocalypse shows.

An orange quadcopter and a couple of kids who look like extras from the Mad Max series play a big part in the storyline. Without giving things away, the drone gets a memorable moment of glory.

Drone-enthusiast group Game of Drones is behind the video. Previously, we watched in terror as a paintball-gun-wielding drone hunted down a person for a high-tech version of "The Most Dangerous Game." Personally, I would much rather face a paintball drone than a zombie.

A brief warning before you watch the film: there's some blood flying about and a bit of screaming, as you might expect from a zombie flick.
