When I used to drive pizza, I would sometimes play this game in my head where all of the shadowy figures wandering the neighborhoods for whatever reason where the undead. I would mentally log the places with the most severe zombie infestations, usually while blasting Diemonsterdie on the car stereo. Sometimes this game freaked me out so bad I could hardly stand it–yet I still played it. You need to be aware of your surroundings when you’re a pizza driver, just like you’ll have to be when the zombie apocalypse hits. Plus, I figured that when it did hit, that job would be one of the most important jobs out there, next to renegade biker and mercenary. Survivors have to eat, after all.
So, it was with great interest that I viewed “Deliver Me to Hell,” an interactive short film from New Zealand’s Hell Pizza, about a pizza driver who valiantly sets out to make his delivery in the middle of the zombie uprising. It’s sort of a “choose your own adventure” game (click on the still to watch, and make sure annotations are turned on), where players who make it to the delivery in one piece are eligible to win a year of free Hell Pizza. The downside, for most of our FrightCatalog.com readers, is that you have to be a resident of New Zealand to win all that free pizza; the upside is that you can still watch from wherever you are and play along, and maybe order yourself a pizza locally. Don’t forget to tip your driver!
