Zombies, who needs them? They smell really bad and moan all the time; you definitely don't want them as neighbors. But this genre is extremely familiar (read over done). But that doesn't mean "no more zombies", but rather do something original or different (see Shaun of the Dead). How does this short film differ from other zombie films? Well first, they film the Zombies outside the Mall of America, in a tongue-in-cheek commentary about consumerism that doesn't fit well into the rest of the film. Most disappointing is the "hit you over the head with a sledgehammer" religious ending in which our Living Dead Girl is saved by eating the Body of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. No, seriously. A man, Jesus, is bitten by the Living Dead Girl, and is no longer a Zombie. Wow. The message may have seemed like a good one to the filmmaker, but this short film does little to involve or inspire its viewers.
