“Brain freeze –I got it too!” [Mike]
on 19 May 2016
In this 2007 Zombie comedy [aka: aagh! Zombies!!] an experimental military test Serum contaminates some ice cream, which in turn infects four friends who pass out and reawaken as zombies, but they do not realise this and still see themselves as humans, until, that is, they meet soldier Nick and things start to go haywire as they believe the rest of the world are infected.
The clever twist in this is that it’s filmed from the point of view of the zombies which gives a completely new spin to the genre. Borrowing heavily from 50’s ‘B’ Movies and comic books, this uses black and white photography to change from ‘normal’ to ‘zombie view’ which is amusing and there are plenty of gags as the logic of their conclusions is very ‘Monty Python’.
The single disc is a bare bones offering play, scene selection and theatrical trailer. This is rated 15 for the typical zombie ‘violence’ and themes but has little swearing and no nudity, although there are sexual references. The humour is ever present, but despite some real laugh out moments, most is decidedly tongue in cheek and fans of ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and 'B' movies should like it.
