The most emotional Zombie film of all time!
24 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is not just a comedy with Zombies; this film is an emotional roller-coaster which will have you splitting your sides with laughter one minute, and soaking your hankie the next. What I liked most about the film was the social commentary; the fact that society, fulled by media panic, instantly reacts in the most extreme way and by the time they realise the damage of their actions, its too late and they have infected the most innocent in society. It also deals with old age, illness, euthanasia and care - and I felt, personally having a long-term illness, that it balanced well the need for survival through illness and the want of a speedy departure when the illness gets too far.

10/10 from me.
