Gravediggers, Mad Cows and Zombies
We start out in the evening with a farmer investigating the source of an unusual sound on his property. What he finds is a mad cow hungry for a snack. Our next shot is day time and an annoying couple are driving down a rural road and hit a man. Zombie madness ensues. The female in the relationship survives the zombie run-in and spends the rest of the film hiking about meeting other survivors and ineptly attempting to fight for her life. She is in the entire film and consistently did things that annoyed me. The support cast was decent however. The gravedigger is very likable, and the coach and his wife add some humor. The pacing is odd and some scenes go on forever. There is some dizzying film work in some early scenes. I thought it was actually interesting initially but it made me feel a little nauseous after a while. The worse thing about this film was the continuity. There are many scenes where they show a group of zombies descending and then when it goes to a tight battle shot there is only one zombie to contend with. There are also a couple strange moments involving zombies not acting like they should that I can only call plot holes, because they didn't share the joke with me. The gore is decent and is quite plentiful at times but they make use of a single weapon too often and these scenes begin feeling repetitive. They are a little stingy with the zombie make up also. Sounds like a lot of complaints, but there are a handful of brilliant moments. The scene where we first meet the coach is amusing and the introduction to his wife is hilarious. It is obvious the makers of this film are attempting to amuse and entertain as much as scare but they left a few too many holes for me to step in. Just squeezes in there for a passing mark. Rent at your own risk.
