Youthful passion merges with adult ambition as twelve year old Emily Hagins attempts to fulfill her childhood dreams of directing a feature-length zombie movie. Every director knows that making a movie is no simple task, and fortunately Emily isn't alone in her efforts. As Emily's mother juggles the roles of agent, crewmember, driver, and fan, the ambitious adolescent filmmaker calls the shots from behind the camera while going out of her way to ensure that the "walking dead" shamble, and not

[Zombie Girl] has rough edges, raw passion and real spirit.

While subject Emily Hagins' precocious pluck is admirable and endearing, what lends the docu its dramatic edge is the way in which her mother goes from supportive to meddlesome over the course of the no-budget horror pic's production.

Triumphant and joyful.

The three directors behind this remarkable documentary plant themselves like flies-on-the-wall and capture a very intimate atmosphere.

It's an inspirational story, of course, and also an illustrative tale for would-be filmmakers of any age.

Watching Emily perfect shots, arrange her schoolmate extras (often dripping with fake blood), and emotionally react to the roller coaster ride of filmmaking is where the true heart of this engaging documentary lies.

The crew deserve most of the credit turning this seemingly mundane topic in to one of pure fascination...

As a breezy behind-the-scenes peek at how micro-budget movies get made, Zombie Girl could be shown in high school film classes ... and probably should.

Audience Reviews for Zombie Girl: The Movie

Your basic doc. The story is simple and the people involved are interesting. There is a point where I got tired of hearing the Mom complaining about all the work she had to do and there were moments I wanted to tell the girl that she needed to focus more.
I would liked to see more of the film she was making in the doc though. You can buy her movie for $8 but I'm not really that interested.
