American Zombie Reviews
Nice idea, however. Just needed more and better F/X.
WHAT I DIDN'T? It is kind of slow.
WOULD I RECOMMEND IT? Definitely worth watching. Don't expect to see your average blood sucking zombies though.
I am quite a lover of the cinema verite 'mokumentary' style of movie making, and when you add in zombies, it is bound to make me interested. What you get with 'American Zombie' is a good little low budget movie that starts off with a lot of humour and slowly gets darker as it progresses. It completely changes tone in the last 30 minutes, and becomes more of a traditional movie, which does detract a little. The idea of walking and talking zombies will not be to everyone's taste, but I found it a refreshing change that was handled incredibly well. All in all, a fun little movie, and if you are looking for a different take on the tired zombie genre, then you should definately check it out.
