The Last Of Us Fan Film Sequel Is Appropriately Grim

The sequel to Iron Horse’s fan film is a wonderful love letter to Naughty Dog’s post-pandemic masterpiece. The newest fan film revisits Joel and Ellie’s encounter with Bill in the game, and things go just as poorly.

The original fan film went up a few months ago. If you like the two films, be sure to check out their indiegogo project for part three. 

If you’re interested in seeing more, The Last of Us received a glowing review from GI and the paperback of their comic American Dreams released last week.
