I probably would've enjoyed it more if the description hadn't implied this was a zombie movie, not a movie about a zombie movie. As it was, the order of the movie was kinda weird, since the first half hour is not very good (on purpose) and nearly discouraged me from watching the rest because I figured it'd be more of the same. Last hour was better than the first 30 min I guess? You need horror to have a horror comedy, and the only comedy in the "horror" part is that it's kind of a trainwreck. There is no suspense, just a lot of weird and awkward moments that get explained later.

This movie is as good as Shawn Of The Dead in terms of comedic horror. It terms of cinematic enjoyment, totally 5 red skulls with some comedic timing. The whole theme, which you will understand by the end of the movie, because start seemed a bit confusing, but if you keep watching it will make sense. Definitely a movie I probably watch again if I wanted comedic horror.

This was fun. I would not call this a horror movie and the movie description is a little bit misleading. Not really a zombie film, but more about the filmmaking process (where the film in question involves zombies. If you are a fan of Noises Off or Bowfinger, this one will be right up your alley. Don't go into this expecting a zombie film or you will likely be disappointed. If you are looking for a fun film that happens to center around zombies you may like it. I did.

This movie is less of a horror movie and more of a love letter to the micro budget indie movies that make up this genre. Give it a go and stick to it, the movie is definitely better on rewatch.
