3.0 out of 5 stars Amusing in places 8 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This didn"t quite work for me,perhaps because the director tried TOO hard to make a humorous horror film.
The Evil Dead--Full Uncut Version [1982] with Special Features [DVD] proved that you could produce a scary,gory film interspersed with amusing dialogue and groovy action: this film seemed to overdose on the gore and humour and seemed to lose it"s way a bit.
However there were moments of genuine class(in my humble opinion)i.e. the take-off of Micheal Jackson"sThrillervideo is one of them.
I bought this dvd because I was influenced by some of the reviews of this film on Amazon"s site; it just goes to show you how variable a person"s interpretation of a film can be.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't deserve any points!! 5 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To even use 'Shaun of the Dead' in the bio for this movie is a blasphemy!!

This film is terrible and doesn't achieve anything in either the comedy or the horror stakes..... it's just really, really sad... a very poor effort.

Obviously for ZomCom no-one has come near to topping 'Shaun of the Dead' in either content or quality and this humorless American attempt at replicating the genre doesn't even turn up to the race, never mind enter it!!!!

If you want ZomCom - stay with 'Shaun of the Dead' (UK) or 'Last of the Living'(New Zealand)or even Dead and Deader(USA) with Dean Cain if you want a better USA attempt.

I actually threw my copy in the bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a classic 22 Feb 2010
By I. Dunn
Format:DVD
I gave this movie 5 stars for fun factor.
Some Americans dont "get" Shaun of the Dead.
Some Brits dont "get" Dead and Breakfast.
Just like some folks like Country and Western music and some don't.
Think of this a country and western zombie spoof.
I enjoyed it very much, the only thing that could make it better was a couple of extra beers.
You got to take it on its own terms, dont try to impose you preconceptions onto it.
Here Day of the Dead meets Oklahoma, deal with it maties.

One of the most hilarious and well written movies I have ever seen.... so unique and original and such an original take in a weird way. 100% recommend this to people who love Shaun of the Dead and Psycho.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll like it.....but not a lot! 5 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A frequently head scratching and yet utterly brilliant horror comedy with musical interludes thrown in.

It is hard to describe this film without giving away too many of the plot points but this is a film about the undead and the dead that I am pretty sure you will never have seen before, and wearing its lack of self importance on its sleeve as it pokes fun at horror and itself without dragging you out of the film.

Buy it and be very pleasantly surprised at what a good choice you made.

3.0 out of 5 stars So So ZomCom 17 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Horror films released by the Anchor Bay imprint can usually be expected to be at least an interesting release with a good quality of packaging & picture quality - this would be attempt to follow in the successful footprints of The Evil Dead & Shaun Of The Dead as a gory ZomCom really only just makes the grade as a worthwhile product for the label.
The first half of the film is pretty slow - the build up to the zombie "explosion" seems to meander along with very few laughs or scares & the main problem is that the cast of travellers struggle to make an impression in terms of engaging with the audience - in the absence of decent characterisations stemming from the writer/director you tend to look for familiar faces & I only recognised Bianca Lawson (from the latter days of Saved by the Bell - & her acting hasn't developed much since her "arms folded" days on that show) & Gina Phillips from a few successful genre films (Jeepers Creepers etc).
If you can stick with the first 40 minutes then the film does change pace when the cast trek off to a barn hoe down - things take an upturn as invading zombies want more than a dance from their ad hoc partners.
The rest of the film does then exhibit a succession of gory & inventive endings for the zombies & cast members, the dark humour does pick up to some extent (i.e. if you find the thought of some MJ's Thriller style synchronised zombie dancing amusing etc) & a decent resolution of sorts is reached.
Overall 2.5 stars & might be worth a look for fans of this genre at the right price.
