Owen Hughes’s review:
A guy, whose name escapes me, wakes up to find out he's a zombie. He can talk, run, laugh, cry etc. He's just a regular guy, Guy. He bumps into another zombie who can do the same, who died from auto erotic asphyxiation. They go on a road trip to find the main guys girlfriend so he can propose to her, only they get pursued by some government types. Oh, er, they're not the only zombies either, there are regular zombies, but they seem to be the only 2 who can talk and think and stuff.
It's as shit as it sounds. I thought it would be a bit Tucker & Dale or Shaun of the Dead-ish, but it's not. It's billed as a comedy/horror, and I guess that's what it is, but it's not funny enough nor scary at all.
They pack the film full of geek references in a bid to boost the enjoyment you can get out of the film trying to spot them all, which is fine on some level but they came across as a bit over-reliant on you recognising them all. There were characters that were utterly, utterly pointless. They had no role to play in any part of the story but still inexplicably got screen time.
The story itself isn't necessarily badly told, it's just a road trip movie where the main characters happen to be zombies and their pursuers are zombie hunting government enforcer types, but the ending is stupid and wrapped up all too nicely (whilst being totally ridiculous at the same time). The acting isn't bad for what it is from the 2 buddies, but nobody else comes out of this as strongly.
I think, quite possibly, you're supposed to be stoned whilst watching this. Sober, it's a film that's just on the wrong side of average. I wanted to like it, I did, I tried, I just couldn't.
