The plan is for us to stick together, watch each other's backs and get to the car as fast as possible. These things are brutal blood thirsty death machines that want nothing more than to eat our vital organs and drink our wholesome American blood. But we're not going to let that happen. We're going to make it out of here, we're all going to make it to Long Island and we're gonna make it...
Well, that bay house?

his is a funny, fun, and interesting indie rock zombie movie. It gives a simple and unique twist to the zombie genre.
Eat Me! is a story of everyday guys stuck in the middle of a zombie outbreak. The comedy in this story comes from the absolutely clueless main characters. They really have no idea how to handle the situation and try their hardest to come up with crazy ideas that work or fail with hilarious results. The band has many silly and heated arguments that they have particularly funny to me. The fact that the cast is made up of both women and men with varying ethnic backgrounds made this film particularly enjoyable to watch. It works both on an aesthetic and authentic level for this film. While obviously budget-limited, this film lacks the bad aspects of low-budget films such as horrible acting, shaky camera work, cliché story lines, and slow silly dialogue. Because of the solid writing and direction of Eat Me! it is enjoyable to watch, not because is is low-budget but despite the fact it is. That said, the low budget quality adds to the punk rock aesthetic of the movie.
