A partly ridiculous and silly, but also quite entertaining and funny zombie movie with an entertaining synth score. Almost everywhere where there are zombies there is a lot of smoke and green light, which doesn't make any sense, but looks good. Zombie birds, a flying zombie head, explosions and an exploding head, there is enough to have fun.
