For others the comedy and horror movie from 2009 was just a good movie to watch. For me it was the movie that introduced me to zombie movies. The movie is a horror movie but don’t see it as a horror movie, since it’s really not scary. I managed to get my most easily scarred friend to watch the movie with me. She did not get scarred either but I guess there might be a jump scare or two for extremely easily scarred persons. So watch it for the comedy aspect instead and I can almost guarantee that you will like it.
The plot is about a guy who meats some survivors and they take a road trip through the zombie filled United States with an amusement park as their final destination.
So the summary may not sound that great but the movie has one of the greatest funny characters I have ever seen in a similar movie. His name is Tallahassee and he is the character that everyone loves, makes everyone laugh and he lifts the entire movie.
The other characters are a bit more typical but they are still good. The zombies are not necessarily created for the scary appearance factors so don’t expect zombies in class with the walking dead series. These zombies are not so seriously done visually but with the lovely Tallahassee and the comedy aspect you don’t really focus on the appearance of the zombies.
The plot really does work out a lot better than you would expect from my summary and it heightens the comedy in the movie without it being cheesy. They made the funny parts fit in with many of the action packed scenes which avoided the scenario with predictable jokes.
The visuals were also a bit funny since the main character has added a survival guide with helpful advices that will occasionally appear on the screen. These captions were also implanted in a humoristic way into the movie. The only thing people might dislike a bit is the ending but I like it since it’s perfect for a sequel and I sure hope they make one.
For me it was the perfect zombie movie and I really hope you see it if you have managed to miss out on it before. 9 / 10
