Roland Becerra's terrifyingly lovely animated short, Dear Beautiful, is being turned into a full-length movie. The jarringly realistic animation follows Paul, a married man whose marriage is in trouble. Paul's wife sniffs a deadly new flower that is popping up all over their home state of Connecticut. The contaminated flower (tarnished by a nearby make-up laboratory) slowly turns Paul's beloved into a crazed zombie. Unable to accept her transformation, Paul goes about living his life with his zombie wife, much to the horror of his friends and family. Click through to check out the trailer.

Becerra's animation is scary-real, and often times it's impossible to tell the difference between the drawings and reality. The original animated short made its way through the festivals and can be viewed at Moving Pictures Magazine.
