A fun way to spend a couple of hours.
27 November 2010 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This isn't the best zombie movie, not the best zomedy either, and I wasn't really expecting it to be, but it was a fun little ride, and surprisingly had a decent structure of originality separating it from other zombie films plaguing the ever increasing genre.

Billy Zane held this movie throughout and provided some seemingly improvised laughs which made the atmosphere light hearted. It wasn't a film to make you scared, just a little grossed out with an extra smile on your face.

I thought the camera work was very decent. The sound effects as well as visual effects were top notch, the only problem I really had with the movie was the script and that it faltered continuously which I think was the only reason this movie took a low rating. I felt Billy Zane's instinctual acting experience almost completely made him avoid this pot hole, but unfortunately the other actors seemed to just follow suit and act their way to the finish line. I wasn't seeing characters, I was seeing people acting and sometimes not that greatly.

Besides Billy Zane (who seems to polish up a dirty script, even if he is the sole memorable presence of the film) another actor which I thought did extremely well was Maggie Castle. In this film, acting experience obviously pays off, but the cast shouldn't have to construct the film. That's the film makers and the screenwriters position.

Of course I'm just an armchair expert, I have no experience in the process of film making apart from the countless 'making of's' I have watched as well as thousands of movies. But it doesn't take a film director or an actor or a screenwriter to claim whether or not their movie is good, it should be left to the audience who get that untainted first view without reminiscence of the actual process of making the movie.

Overall score 5/10 -- It was fun!
