12-Year-Old Makes Zombie Feature: You're An Underachiever

Emily, the tween director, has crafted an entire zombie feature film, with a documentary crew in tow. Check out the trailer for this adorable tween zombie-making documentary, and feel like a total slacker.

Zombie Girl, which is currently at the Slamdance film festival, follows Emily Hagins as she makes her full length horror movie, complete with bleeding tweens and slow-walking zombies.


Oh and the kicker: her mom is her agent, sound tech., props wrangler, gaffer and all of the above, because Emily is too young to drive. Awesome job, Emily — can't wait to see the whole thing. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go yell at my mother.

I tells ya, kids today don't know how good they have it.

When we were kids, if we wanted to make a zombie film we had to find an ancient tome and actually raise the dead!

Plus we had to walk 80 miles through 60 foot high snowdrifts, naked, uphill both ways—just to get to school from our house, which was a shoebox in the middle of the road. We ate rocks for dinner, and if we were really good—we didn't have to eat dessert.
