Inventive, gory fun but the whole is not greater than the sum of its parts
This is an inventive and darkly humorous zombie film that may turn off some purists who think zombie films should adhere to a set list of rules. But if you like your zombie movies to evolve new styles and have fun with old clichés, then you just might enjoy it. It is gory and over the top with energetic editing, perhaps to a fault. The dialogue is mostly amusing with a few parts that fall flat. The reason why I rated it a 6/10 is because I felt it lost momentum. It had a lot of fun and interesting elements but they didn't come together as a whole as well. The second half of the movie I was less engaged. It's hard to pinpoint exactly the reason, but the characters and the writing are likely the culprits.
