COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Zombie Apocalypse: The Musical submitted by Meginator on June 21, 2020, 2:50pm Content Warning: This film contains scenes with exaggerated gory violence.
As the cover art suggests, this is indeed a zombie Christmas musical, and what it lacks in plotting it more than makes up for with sheer gusto. Focusing on a small group of high school students, the story follows a fairly typical outbreak plotline, as survivors team up and try to fight their way through mobs of the undead. The songs are top-notch, amazingly catchy and appropriate for the characters and the film’s generally irreverent tone. The film’s final third takes some interesting twists and turns, though some of the emotional beats don’t land quite as effectively as they could with a little more nuance and narrative subtlety. Overall, this film is great for what it is even if it doesn’t always nail the intended combination/balance of comedy and emotional depth. I recommend this for fans of zombie films who appreciate the genre’s familiar tropes and the ways in which storytellers continue to put a unique spin on a now-familiar premise.

Gutsy Film - Pleasant Surprise submitted by caburr47 on June 29, 2020, 9:59pm I went into watching this film knowing nothing about it. I'm so glad, it was a really pleasant surprise. This film plays homage to so many styles of film and I feel it was successful in combining them. Highly recommended.

Phenomenal Soundtrack submitted by majean on August 2, 2020, 10:22pm "Hollywood Ending" often gets stuck in my head. I loved this movie. It bummed my husband out. It's now one my favorite holiday films that I will definitely be watching every December.
