A small, sleepy Utah town gets an undead wake-up call when all of the townspeople of Mormon faith suddenly transform into flesh-eating ghouls! Now, a group of 'non-believers' unaffected by the mysterious epidemic must band together to survive the night and answer the burning question: How do you kill a Mormon zombie? Written by
One evening David Driscoll and his partner sit at a sullen table at home having a meal . There's a knock on the door and David answers it to find two missionary Mormons standing there . Telling them he's not interested he closes the door in their face . Seconds later there's another knock and he again answers it to find the two Mormons have become zombies
There's a good idea in here somewhere . In many ways it tries to emulate the zombie comedy horror as seen in the likes of SHAUN OF THE DEAD while at the same time having a poke at religion so no complaints from me . What I will complain about is the sheer ineptness on every level seen in this movie . As soon as the story starts you're aware of how disjointed the set up . Two Mormons become zombies and before you know it the entire Mormon population of the town are flesh eating ghouls converting the humans to their ranks . There's no impact aesthetic or build up to this and you're how disjointed this seems . Everything else continues in the same way as a handful of survivors board up a store to protect themselves . The acting is appalling , the editing and cinematography non existent and the gore is laughable in a totally unintentional way . It does contain a couple of good ideas such as Mormons rejecting all chemical substances such as nicotine , alcohol and caffeine therefore these zombies can be killed by cola . It might have been worth salvaging if it had a competent director ( This movie has three credited directors ! ) a bigger budget and better actors but THE BOOK OF ZOMBIE is very poor stuff to the point of almost being unwatchable
