A fishing community on a remote Maine island finds itself suddenly cut off from the rest of the world after the ferry stops coming. When people start to vanish, the terrified survivors realize that someone - or something - is hunting them.
Adam Wade McLaughlin,
Sometimes films don't fit neatly into any one genre. Though this is scary, it is not a traditional horror movie, instead it's a funny, actually oddly sweet take on traditional zombie tropes, far more in line with Shaun of the Dead than with World War Z.
It's more a Rom-Com Zombie movie.
Think about it. If the one you love becomes the undead, would you just stop loving them? Not in this seriously fun take on zombie movies.
I love the pace, the crackling dialogue and especially Ian Alda as Bill Sampler, an everyman who finds himself the newly undead. With Maria Delfino playing his adoring wife, Courtney Scheuer her snarky best friend and Gabe Greenspan as his just-this-side-of-crazy conspiracy theorist brother-in-law. This awesome foursome tries to find a way to stay fed, keep the good zombies safe and avoid the government black ops ready to stop them.
The representation of the zombie feeding frenzy is a brand-new take in this genre and I was delighted that it's far more comic and cerebral than gory.
The ending sets up a sequel and I'm hoping it happens because I am ready for another serving of these suburban zombies. Bring it!
