One of the most well-crafted stop-motion films we’ve seen. Deeply funny. (Skwigly Animation Magazine)

A film worth freezing for. (Anchorage International Film Festival, Alaska, USA)

Imagine the Gruffalo with Zombies. (Grimm Up North)

Quality storytelling, originality and personality of characters, great animation performance. (Festival Stop Motion Montréal)

The excellently told story is peppered with morbid humor, its archaic English voice-overs entirely in rhyme. (Netherlands Film Festival)

Griezelig, geestig en met grote liefde voor het horrorgenre gemaakt. (Trouw)

A brilliant stop-animated short giving a new spin on the zombie theme. (South African Horrorfest)

18 minutes of macabre delight, this short should be every child’s first horror experience (The Ink And Code)

The attention to detail throughout the film is exquisite, it’s beautifully crafted and the story is brilliant and ingenious (…) I would love to see Under The Apple Tree developed into a feature film. (Atomic Age Renegades)
