Nothing but a Movie

|

In Roberto Bolaño’s ‘The Colonel’s Son’ – published in Granta’s Horror issue – the narrator recounts a B-grade horror flick he sees on late night TV. A girl gets bitten by a zombie; the boy she loves tries to save her; the father of the boy, in turn, tries to save him. Bloodshed spreads across the city, as one by one witnesses become victims . . . and then killers . . .

Nothingbutamovie.com is an HTML5-based animation inspired by Bolaño’s piece, and has been brought to life by Granta illustrator Owen Freeman and the innovative web designers at Jocabola, who collaborated on Arcade Fire’s The Wilderness Downtown. Click here to start spreading the contagion.
