Kangaroos Are Turning People Into Zombies. Seriously.

Waterborne from Octopod Films on Vimeo.

And you thought drop bears were scary.

In a small country town somewhere in Victoria, something has gotten into the water.

An unidentified algae has a local ranger drawn to a town with a hunch that something's just not right.

But it's not until the evening hits that he finds out just how dangerous this town is. Whatever is in the water infects not only humans, but the kangaroos too.

And just when you thought Australian wildlife couldn't be any more terrifying, we introduce, Kangaroo zombies.

Enjoy. You may never sleep again.
