Format:DVD
I found this very enjoyable. It will appeal to fans of "Fido" and "Shaun Of The Dead". A very unique take on the zombie medium, lots of fresh ideas, amusing and witty dialogue, and genuinely likeable characters (something that you don't get too often these days). Not to be taken too seriously. Yes, the premise does borrow a little from Return of the Living Dead, but that is merely the background of the story; the main character plots are very different in style and tone. I like how the film starts of very comic book, and how the film switches from black and white to colour in various parts of the film to show the difference between what the humans perceive and what the zombies perceive. I found the idea highly amusing, that the only uninfected people that could communicate with the zombies on their level were those who were blind drunk. This whole premise was a stroke of genius in my opinion and executed extremely well for a low budget film. There are a little tips of the hat to Romero films too, but this is basically it's own boss and tosses convention to it's side. I was very impressed with the special FX and makeup and the general look of the film too. Nice camera work and editing. I won;t go to much into the plot as others have already. Not an out-and-out classic, and maybe not one for the hardcore blood-and-guts brigade, but a good fun, beer and friends movie, which is worthy of minor cult status. I would rate this on a par with Fido, which is another ingenius twist on the satirical zom-com theme.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great original Zombie Comedy 9 Oct 2009
By I love New York VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great film. As the other reviewer has stated it is totally original and tells the story from the Zombie point of view. They see themselves as normal but when the films changes to the human point of view they are the walking dead.

I haven't seen a film like this before and makes a welcome alternative addition to the Zombie genre.

Only found out about it from itun*s and refuse to buy films from them when Amazon offers for so much less.

Buy this film and sit back and laugh.

4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bonkers genius! 8 Oct 2009
By I Am Tyler Durden VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
What a great idea; A classic Romero style Zombie outbreak told from the point of view of the zombies. To them everything seems normal and they think everyone else has gone crazy. We follow the zombies on thier quest to save the world with what they think are superhero powers to take bullets and dismemberment and much hilarity ensues as we see the mayhem from the points of view of both sides. The plot is great with characters I rooted for. Less gory than Shaun of the Dead but enough to service the plot and in a comedy context it's easy going. Overall just totally original and it does a great job of running with the concept and taking it as far as it can and in unexpected directions. I only knocked off a star because it just needed a little more oomph at the end but still a top rate B-Movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Original, but needs work 31 Mar 2010
By Dezza
Format:DVD
This film is very very original, but needs work. The storyline is simple and brilliant. A zombie movie from the point of view of the zombie. Awesome right? Well yes and no. The Idea is good but unfortunatly it hasn't been worked on hard enough. Here's a sum up of the plot, a group of friends mix ice-cream with beer and eat it, but the ice-cream has been contamenated with a green substance and turns the group into zombies. But here's the twist, they all think there super soldiers and everyone else is diseased. Yes it's paper-thin but enjoyable. Like I said it needs work, but don't worry am sure there will be plenty more movies of this kind in the future, good and bad. To sum up it's a good original film, with some good laughs, enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars so bad it's good! 7 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
this film does what it says on the cover.
a cheesy, poignant story that appears to be a little bit amateurish but which runs a lot deeper on reflection
a fun filled time for anyone with an alternative humour bent
i love it and was totally happy with the price, condition and service around this product

2.0 out of 5 stars A very B-rated movie
Such a great concept; a view from the zobie side. However I feel that the psuedo 50's style comic approach and grainy edited colouring detracted totally from the theme. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, original zombie movie on a budget
I really liked this film, which works really well on a budget.
Tightly edited, for the most part, its original viewpoint makes for a great plot and storyline. Read more
