When there are zombies in a movie there's only two places it can go, either it would tank or it would be great. It's the same instinct with the human characters, their instinct is to survive, but nonetheless, their ending will always be the same two choices, either they live or they die. But I can't say it's the same thing for this one. This movie has five layers of goodness. If onions have layers, then so does this one. Although it opened so many sub-plot possibilities, it didn't dive in to over do as such. This is placing a well acted and written script in the hands of a great master. If John Hughes directed a zombie movies in the 80s, then this would be it. Jonathan Levine had done such a great job on mixing and balancing the amount of an atmosphere from a scene to another that you don't get to be overdosed by too much quirk or cheesy plotlines. Turned out zombies can woo better than vampires and aliens.
