Review - Aaah! Zombies!!
Thursday, February 17, 2011

Aaah! Zombies!! is one part zombie movie and two parts comedy. The plot starts with group of young men and women who eat some tainted beer/ice cream mix and become zombies, BUT they don’t know they’ve become zombies. In fact, no zombies know they’re zombies. They look, act and speak like normal people to each other. Only non-zombies can tell who is who. The way Aaah! Zombies shows this is by switching the film to black and white to show us what regular, non-zombie, people are seeing.

The comedy is really on point in Aaah! Zombies!!. The makeout scene in the bowling alley, the time when Tim, as a zombie, tries to get approval from Cindy’s parents to date her, and Mike’s discovery that he has a newfound hankering for brains, are some of the funniest moments. Oh, and did I mention there’s a scene where a severed head heroically leads them into battle? Yeah, awesome!

At times the character of Nick Steele, who at first thinks he’s a super soldier, is a little too tragic. You actually feel bad for the guy, which is good writing, but sometimes takes away from the flow of the comedy. As long as viewers understand the need for well rounded characters, and that this isn’t all comedy, that’s OK.

The movie climaxes with the zombies attempting to get away to settle a land of their own. Sort of like the pioneers, except, you know, dead.

All the actors are really great in Aaah! Zombies!!, but as much as I want to say this could be a breakout project for Matthew Davis, who plays the uber-hilarious Mike in the film, something tells me his role as Alaric Saltzman on The Vampire Diaries might have that title. That being said, Aaah! Zombies!! is a really cool flick with a unique take on the zombie genre.

Enjoyability: 4 out of 5

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
