Short Film: Decay

Shot and set at the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, by physics PhD students

Amateur zombie movies are a dime a dozen, but Decay offers up something unique.  This full-length film (which was released to the net over the weekend) was shot entirely on location at CERN by Luke Thompson, a Ph.D. student at the University of Manchester.  The uber-creepy setting alone completely justifies the watch, but its a surprisingly decent zombie flick to boot.

Thompson hopes that his film will draw attention to the ludicrous nature of the recent fear-mongering that has been creeping up around the LHC, such as the speculation about world-destroying black holes spring up.  While CERN has no official involvement in the project (the film wasn't set in sensitive locations), it's told Wired that Decay "shows how pure science can stimulate creativity." Watch the whole 76-minute movie on YouTube, or download it for free from the official site.
