Storyline

The film appears at first to be a documentary. Bish, a final year film student, is shooting the documentary for his graduating project. Things change when an unspecified "incident" wipes out the population of Western Australia leaving Bish as the only survivor. At first he enjoys his new found wealth and power, stealing cars, playing golf in expensive mansions and breaking into an Army base to steal an arsenal of weaponry including a Field Gun which he uses to shell the houses of people he didn't like when they were alive. Bish is just starting to become lonely when the zombies arrive and he finds a new lease of life in the challenge of survival. He is preparing to leave Perth when he makes contact with another survivor, Sarah, on the other side of town and he finds the true purpose that had eluded him in his former life - to get to Sarah and get her out of the city. However as the city is now overflowing with zombies this proves to be more than a little difficult. Written by Anonymous

This movie is hilarious :p
31 March 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I had the distinct pleasure of seeing this film at the premiere screening. I wasn't sure what to expect of the final edit but I knew it would be a whole lot of fun and I certainly wasn't disappointed! I rate Dave Bishop's film making right up there with Kevin Smith & Mr. Ed Wood who's movies I have loved from an early age. This movie is set up to look like a student film so it's meant to be bad but that's what makes it so damn good. The 'zombies' are definitely laughable but no more so than some I've seen in recent big budget blockbusters.

Now, some reviews (if you can call a scathing personal attack on the actors a 'review') may lead you to believe that this movie is really not worth seeing but I personally would recommend it to anyone with a sense of humour. The 'Star Wars' references and low brow jokes had me laughing so hard I missed what happened next in a few places and I can't wait for the DVD release so I can pause it to catch my breath.

Do yourself and the Aussie film industry a favour and see this movie at the first opportunity!
