After launching a successful crowdfunding campaign last year to complete their short film, and touring the festival circuit, speculative fiction writers and filmmakers Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes have premiered their completed film, Danger Word, online. 

Adapted from their novel Devil’s Wake, the short stars Frankie Faison and Saoirse Scott and centers on a 13-year-old girl and her grandfather who have survived the zombie plague in a wooded cabin, when her birthday celebration goes badly awry.
