The Outbreak - A Choose Your Own Adventure Zombie Movie

When I was a kid I was fascinated with those choose your own adventure books, but every time I actually bought one I became disappointed with the lack of actual control the reader has on a story. I remember my local movie theater installing the EDGE ride system, which would occasionally feature a short film that would allow the audience members to choose the direction the characters would go with a remote built into the seats. Again, the result was disappointing and that ride system quickly vanished from my beloved multiplex.

Chris Lund has created a choose your adventure zombie film called The Outbreak, and released it online. I can't say that it's that much better than the choose your own adventure books from my childhood, but I love the concept that indie filmmakers are now able to explore these kind of interactive options.
