What Would A Zombie Think? Super Quick Review of Ahh Zombies

This weekend we believed my son had caught Pink Eye. Naturally we battened down the hatches and quarantined ourselves in doors. The misses and I sat back and watched a good number of movies. I was able to catch a very neat remake of The Lost World and one of Land That Time Forgot. The Lost World had that very good actor (cannot remember his name) that played in Indiana Jones and was Indy's contact in Egypt. He played Professor Challenger and Jeremy Irons played the other Professor (Smithe?). The movie was good. It had claymation dinos but it felt like a classic movie. In addition to the classics, however, I came across something that my buddy Don over at T-Shirt Bordello would get a kick out of.

Ahh Zombies!!!

The movie is OK, the acting is OK, the graphics are OK but the premise is brilliant! What would it look like from the point of view of a zombie? So the movie starts off OK but gets better fairly quickly. Without giving away any of the movie I can say the coolest thing was the movie starts in B&W and goes into Color when in the point of view of the Zombies. Also, when the movie is in the point of view of the zombies the normals are sped up and sound like demented chipmunks. See the zombies brains are very slow and they move slow. I thought it was genius!

So sure the acting is OK and the graphics are nothing spectacular but if you are an old school horror fan like I am and you like things like Dawn of the Dead or even Resident Evil you'll like Ahh Zombies.

See it

    When you can't get Brian Blesssed, you get John Rhys-Davies.

    That's the guy!
