Two brothers, an apple farmer and a priest, don’t get along. The priest is fed up with his peasant brother and his ugly apple orchard, dropping thousands of rotten apples in his neat little graveyard. The farmer is a gawky fellow, drunk on homemade cider, and deeply unhappy.
One stormy night the farmer hangs himself. At that very moment, Aber, a homeless worm, is desperately seeking for shelter from the rain and thunder. Aber discovers the dead farmer, dangling between the branches like a huge apple. Delighted with his new, spacious house Aber discovers he has full control over the farmer’s dead body, just by shouting commands. And so, the dead farmer comes knocking on the priests door.
The secret of zombiedom. Now you know.
Us worms control the brain of the dead.
And when you’re old and you have to go,
we are the voice inside your head…
Written/Directed/Produced by Stevie Quigley, Jason McCullough, Justin Hoffman, & Danielle Raymond

In the first few seconds we are dropped right outside the gates of hell on the road towards Redemption smack dab in the middle of the Lost Highway. We join Waffles and Syrup (old Horn n’ Hooves loves naming his underlings after his favorite foods) on the ride of their afterlives as they set out on an epic journey through the nine circles of hell with only a car, a girl, and the Necronomicon to light their way. Hot on their tails is Bigg Redd, a swarm of the bat-like creatures the called Datcogs and a long list of big ol’ baddies with brimstone burning in their hearts. With the voice of John DiMaggio (Futurama).
