Movie 7 of 365

20 Jan

Movie 7 of 365

I’m a big zombie movie fan. Not for the shamblers themselves but how people react to living in or after the zombie apocalypse. Plus zombie movies provide another level of horror that other monster movies, with maybe the exception of vampire or demon possession, don’t provide. The horror that you may have to kill someone you love in order to survive.

I put ZMD:Zombies of Mass Destruction somewhere between Hide and Creep and Shaun of the Dead. Better production values and acting than Hide and Creep but you don’t connect with the characters as well as you do in Shaun. And you really want to connect with some of them. Like poor Tom who has finally come back to his home town with his boyfriend Lance to come out to his mother. And Frida who struggles being Iranian and American in a post 9/11 world. Even the terminally awkward Brian who is the next door neighborhood Frida, and the completely misguided Rev. Haggis have their moments.

The only thing I didn’t like with the movie was the gore factor. Yes there is going to be gore in a zombie movie. Just felt a bunch of it went above and beyond without any real purpose or payoff besides maybe to add gross-out to a slow scene.
