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.
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.
I loved the singing and dancing zombies- that actually made me laugh out loud.
Definitely an amusing film, and definitely worth watching.
