This is what "Snakes on a Plane" should have been. It is also what "Citizen Kane" should have been. I'm only halfway kidding.
The story is very predictable and includes every cliché I could ask for, but rather than making me groan, somehow it had me laughing out loud. I'm not sure how much of the humor is intentional, but some of it definitely is, and the film has a feeling overall kind of in between "Army of Darkness" and every PG-13 popcorn horror movie ever made.
The look of the zombies is pretty much the same as all of the other new direct-to-video and made-for-TV zombies films, but somehow it feels just right here. The zombies are neither scary nor hypnotic, but they are very shootable, and when they get shot, it's a good feeling.
Snap. I'm so tired, and I think this review is incoherent. My point is this: "Plane Dead" is a lot of fun, and a breath of fresh air for a genre that's getting suffocated by remakes and sequels that just miss the point.
