Storyline

A low-budget film about zombies soon features the best cast money could not buy, but the problem is that the new actors are not exactly getting along with the crew. Everyone involved is soon receiving a lesson in the merits of perseverance, the preciousness of family bonds and of course the dangers of the living dead. Written by aghaemi

Hilarious and Unique!
10 February 2019 | by Sahl_95See all my reviews

Definitely one of the most unique movies I have seen. For the first third, I was a little confused as to why it was so highly rated and thought some choices were a bit odd; not to say it was bad. The 37min long take was still amazing to watch, just a bit odd at times.

However, as the movie begins to reveal its surprise, and I began to understand the genius that was unfolding, it quickly became one of the most enjoyable movies I have had the pleasure of seeing. And so funny! If you can, go in cold to avoid any spoilers.

It's also in rare company in that it's one of the few movies that actually made me laugh out loud.
