Yes, it’s another zombie movie. However, fair play to the film-makers for at least TRYING to do something a little different (assuming that you haven’t seen ‘Deadheads’ which is a bit like ‘A Little Bit Zombie’).

I guess there are two types of zombie outbreak – the one that consumes the whole world at once and the other than only happens in a localised rural area. In this case we have the latter. While 99% of the world sleeps soundly in their beds, oblivious to the fact that hordes of flesh-eating ghouls are eating people alive in a small town, two couples go on a trip there to plan one of their weddings. And one of them gets infected with the ‘zombie virus.’

I won’t go into how that happened, as, like I say, they do try to be a little different whenever they can. But, as we all know, when you exchange blood with the undead, you begin to turn. However, the man infected doesn’t just start tearing apart his party. He’s a little more in control than that. A little. So, witnessing his inner turmoil, his friends set out trying to preserve his humanity while doing their best to quench his thirst for human brains.

Does it work? Sort of. A few of the acting performances leaves a little to be desired, but, on the whole, the cast are okay. The gore, for those who like seeing heads explode at every possible turn, isn’t up to that much. You get the odd ‘head shot,’ but that’s about it. What saves the film from being totally forgotten is the dialogue. The two couples don’t really get on well to begin with, let alone when one of their number starts threatening to eat the others alive. Therefore there’s quite a lot of nice banter between the four of them which makes it quite humorous to watch.

It’s a short film, running at less than the standard one and a half hours, but it doesn’t really need to be much longer. It’s no classic, but it’s not that bad either. If you can really stand to sit through another zombie movie (or should I say another ‘zom-com’ movie?) then you might like it. I read someone else’s review online which stated that ‘A Little Bit Zombie’ is like ‘National Lampoon’s Eighties Zombie Movie.’ That’s a pretty good appraisal of the film.

This is a low budget indie zom-com (of sorts) from Canada. It well made, with proper actors, but had very little gore. Or zombie action.

----------spoilers------

It tells the story of Steve (Kristopher Turner), who works in HR and is driving to a vacation at the family cottage in the woods with his, let's say, "controlling" future wife, Tina, played by Crystal Lowe. Along with his sister Sarah (Kristen Hager) and her husband, Craig (Shawn Roberts).

Nearby, two zombie hunters (Max and Penny, a manic Stephen McHattie and Emilie Ullerup) are hunting zombies, (the woods are full of them, seemingly) with Max dispatching the reanimated, one quip at a time. Along comes a mosquito and bites one of the zombies before flying onto the windshield of Steve's car. It comes back to life and bites Steve, turning him into a human-zombie hybrid (a "humzie"?), with his humanity apparently intact but with a desire for human brains.

I thought the set up was quite clever. I liked the zombie mosquito idea (I hadn't seen that before) and the idea that a person in HR (with his "work place conflict resolution initiative") was so mild mannered and reasonable that he didn't turn into a zombie, was a clever conceit. Also, appallingly future bride Tina, who won't let anything stand in the way of her "big day", even a cead bridegroom, did have great potential. Overall, I thought we could be heading down a sort of "Re-animator" style silly bloody fun. Unfortunately, not.

The problem is, apart from the swearing (which felt out of place), the film was just too "nice". There are some neat comedic touches (Greg, piercing Steve's fallen ear with a fork before washing it under the tap, Steve's "reaction" to quiche for breakfast...) but there is no gore to speak of and no edge to the humour, which presents itself in the situation. In fact the best part of the film is the bitchy bickering between the two future sister's-in-law.

In a sly, dry, more gentle, way it is a different approach to zombie films, but not really funny nor gory enough for me, personally.

Max (Stephen McHattie) and Penelope (TV star Emilie Ullerup) are zombie hunters. They use a directional orb which detects the presence of the undead. Meanwhile two couples are spending a pre-wedding vacation in a cabin. Steve (Kristopher Turner) is an HR rep, a nice guy with a touch of geek. He is going to marry Tina, (Crystal Lowe) a character which reminded me of a flaky Samantha Bee from "The Daily Show." Steve's sister Sarah (Kristen Hager) is going to be the matron of honor. The two women do not get along. Sarah's husband Craig (Shawn Roberts, a down to earth guy, rounds out the foursome.

If you look at the cover and read the title you can surmise Steve becomes a zombie, but not a complete zombie. He is a "resistive host" but still craves human brains.

The film is more of a comedy with a zombie background. George Buza played his minor role well. The film was fun to watch as the two couples attempt to get along when Steve becomes an issue. "Family takes care of family."

Parental Guide: F-bomb. C-word. No sex or nudity. Adult talk. Cat fight.

I like zombie films and I like comedies. This film is a combination of both, but fails to satisfy in either area. An OK watch but was looking at the clock 15 minutes from the end wondering when it was going to finish. Not a good sign. 2.5 stars.

This is a low budget film that is just so well done! It's a really enjoyable twist on the zombie genre, and quite simply funny and enjoyable. The acting isn't great apart from the lead who is pretty good, but to be honest it really doesn't matter - this is how low budget films should be made, definately watch it again!

Funny film, myself, partner and 14 & 9 year old loved it (Lots of F.... words though). Laughed out loud quite a few times.

A movie that is utterly brilliant in its awefulness. Don't take yourself to seriously if you watch this...

it certainly doesn't.
