Most Zombie films revolve around the beginnings and aftermath of an Zombie virus outbreak. There are often large hoards of Zombies, milling about, moaning and eating brains. A group of survivors then form an uneasy alliance and begin to blow their heads off. It's a good time to explore the themes of manning up, making due and persevering. Good times are to be had I tells ya, good times.
What if a Zombie film was smaller? What if there were no hoards of Zombies, just a married couple. A scientist and his wife. What if the scientist was doing the best he could to delay his wife's death? And what if she was, as the title tells us, already dead?
His love is Adrienne Barbeau aka "Adriene Barbeau Fucking Rocks" as adored by Final Girl.
And trust me people, she is worthy of the title.
At the center of this film is a love that aches out loud. It's the love that makes the scientist husband do what he does. I can't say I blame him. I can't blame the wife either, because she has her say in all this too.
(wee hee hee!)
Either way, this film rocks. And now I want to give it away. Sharing the joy as it were.
Here are the rules:
You tell me why you love Zombie films in three sentences or less. Mr. Hall will judge the entries and whoever wins will receive the DVD in the mail.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
So go now, to the comments, let me hear your Zombie love!
Good luck all!
