A boring, young woman, Maddie, lives a dull, grey existence alongside her fisherman husband, Jack, an illiterate brute. Her routine, though, is going to be affected by Jack’s early demise due to a maritime accident. Indeed, with the onset of a global zombie plague, Maddie will have to re-think her priorities, especially when Jack comes back home…
Home Delivery is an animated adaptation of a story by American best-selling, award-winning author Stephen King. Originally published in 1989 in the anthology “Book of the Dead”, Home Delivery is a short, scary tale, and that same spirit has been translated into its animated version making it a macabre tale, aimed at an adult audience.


Following the Big War, chemical weapons have wreaked havoc among the human race. Men have been turned into dangerous zombies. A group of eight people, among which there are two small children live isolated, trying to survive this hostile situation by holing up in an old run-down house. They cannot abandon the complex and they live in a constant state of vigilance, making sure the Strangers (which is their name for the chemical warfare victims) can’t invade their shelter. The food supplies are running out and they urgently need medicines and ammunitions, but in order to find them they must abandon the secure area. That’s not their only problem, though. Apart from the Strangers, also hanging over them is the threat of the Invisibles: evil spectres that dwell in the old house and whose appearance is associated with a marked drop in temperature.
“The film’s a subtle little gem, one that’s been winning raves on the European festival circuit and building up a quiet little following based entirely on word of mouth.” Todd Brown, Founder and Editor of
