Fun and games!
This is a melancholic take on the zombie genre that puts the undead on the back burner. The two protagonists, played by Adam Cronheim and Jeremy Gardner, who also writes and directs, seem more worried about their sanity than being turned into flesh-eaters. They aren’t technically a group, so they couldn’t care less about etiquette and appearances. They just want to have fun before their demise.
In a certain light, wouldn’t a zombie apocalypse be exciting? Gardner makes it look like camping every day. When Cronheim’s character started jerking off to a hot agitated cadaver, I knew I’d stumbled onto something special. We soon find out all these guys want is to love, fuck, and listen to music. At no point did I feel the zombies were a threat. Loneliness was the enemy.
I’m exhausted with zombies, but I didn’t mind two or tree undead assholes in this case. It should be noted that zombies, here, are slow and weak, like the good old days. Let’s face it; those tell better stories. Fast, slow; ultimately, once you get cornered, you end up drinking your own piss. The film has a minuscule budget, and it didn’t need another dollar. It makes the most of its resources.
