the good zombie moves have a subtext of social commentary that we’re all really zombies…floating along in life, worthless. this comic zombie film takes that the most literally by actually spelling all this out with voice over narration. i guess that’s how this generation is, though, for better or worse. we wear shirts that say “listen to bob marley” and “i love my boyfriend.” it doesn’t get much more straightforward. fair enough.
it’s a take on romeo and juliet mixed in with a post-apocalyptic future where zombies walk the earth. they did a good thing, though, in adding “bonies” to the mix. these were creatures that were just walking skeletons – the last step of the zombie process. so, while zombies are able to be cured (with love), the bonies are too far gone. so, the bonies are the real bad guys which allows the audience to sympathize with the zombies.
not a bad movie, probably would have been better as a comic book.Watched in theater
