I've just seen this film on DVD here in the UK and am really glad I did. You never expect much with Zombie films nowadays as there are so many poor ones out there; having said that I still have full respect for ANYONE who goes out and makes a film whatever the end product. This one is different though, it has a really good concept throughout and is filmed from both the human and zombie perspective which I loved and also found extremely funny. The jokes are quick and sharp and really tuned in with my sense of humour; the espionage one especially! The storyline is simple but keeps pace throughout and never really drags at all. The use of B&W and colour works perfectly to distinguish between 'zombievision' and human eyes and the general quality of the print is good.
This film also achieves something which is actually very hard to do. It has a real 'Group of college friends making a film' kind of feel but at the same time pulls off good acting, direction and an overall impressive production; this always inspires me to look more into film production myself.
Also, and I'm going to get a little deep here, there is a really good concept of what I would call 'majority perspective rules' By this I mean that 'normal' in this world is simply what the MAJORITY of people believe to be normal. By viewing things from a zombie perspective it shows us that to them (zombies) at least, everything IS normal and it's everyone else who is strange. This really makes you think about all the different people in this world and perhaps if we could see things from each others angle then our entire paradigm would change.
Give this one a try if you are looking for something new and refreshing in the genre.
