Why did I like the movie?
24 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been thinking about the movie Zombie Hamlet for the last few days since I've seen it, trying to figure out why I liked it as much as I did.

I think there are two general reasons.

1. June Lockhart. No, not her grand-daughter, the June Lockhart. The one from the 60's. She must be 90. I'm old enough to remember her from "Lost In Space" and "Lassie" but she was absolutely wonderful in Zombie Hamlet. To me she stole the show. I also liked John Amos, famous for the movie "The Beastmaster" and as JJ Walker's dad in "Good Times" way back then. Geeze, how old must he be? Anyway, him questioning June Lockhart about her "ample bosom" just made me laugh. It was funny, but also downright sweet.

You'll hear people say that anyone can be an actor, but watching these two in this movie really spoke well for the acting profession. Gotta find out who the director was too. He/she probably deserves credit for creating a situation where these two professionals were able to shine.

2. It was a fun movie for adults that you can take your kids to. I don't remember lots of cursing or potty humor or gross stuff that comes with so many movies today, I guess to cater to teenagers. This really was a movie that I'd take my kids to.

I hope this movie gets a decent release. It's worthy of one because sometimes it's hard for a dad to find a decent movie to take the kids to on a family night that he can stand and the kids still enjoy. You won't have to cringe at the drug references, teen sex innuendos, and bathroom jokes.

I recommend it.
