Very Unique film!
23 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this little Indy gem at Screamfest where it won the Audience Award for Best Feature. I'm a huge Zombie film fan, thought I'd seen them all, every little twist, turn, variation, etc. And when 'Shaun of the Dead' came out, that kind of closed the book on Zombie Comedy for me. Until this... A Zombie movie from the perspective of the Zombies, simply brilliant. They riff off the old Black and White Romero stuff, then switch into Color when the heroes are 'Zombified'. The rest of the flick plays out switching back and forth for great comic effect. I'll say no more, you have to see it yourself. Be on the lookout, hopefully someone smart will pick it up. It's got 'instant classic' written all over it. Thomas
