George's friends have all gathered for an intervention... George's intervention. You see, George is a zombie and George's friends are attempting to convince George to stop eating people and to enter 'zombie rehab'. But the intervention doesn't go quite as planned.Written by
Director J.T. Seaton was almost arrested for murder when he discarded a mattress, covered in fake blood, by the dumpster behind his apartment. A neighbor spotted the bloody mattress and called the police, fearing that someone might have been killed. When eight police officers arrived at JT's door, he had to prove to the officers that the mattress was just a prop from a horror movie and not evidence of a crime. See more »
All of the character names, with the exception of George, are all names of characters that appear in the five George A. Romero zombie films. And the references do not stop there -- we even get a CHUD mention. Throw in some great horror icons -- Lynn Lowry and Lloyd Kaufman, for example -- and this is a special treat.
The movie is not flawless, but has a great low budget sense of humor. In many ways, it reminded me of "The Janitor", which I would rank as one of the greatest low budget films of all time. The Janitor outranks George, of course, but a similar sensibility is there and I think fans of one would enjoy the other.
Some fine-tuning could have been done, but all in all worth a watch.
