If you like Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus or Wristcutters, you will probably enjoy this film quite a lot. Yes, the trailers are misleading: that is intentional.
If you want a scary zombie movie, this movie isn't for you. This is more like Anne and the Apocalypse meets Wristcutters. It is clearly a movie that all of the actors did because the idea sounded like FUN, and that spirit shows through in their performances.
To those who thought it didn't have a plot, it is subtle, but it is most clearly there. You may need to watch it a second time to catch all of the jokes and references. The offhand comments all are salient, even if they're really odd at first blush.
