American Zombie (2007) Review
Written by: chubungie
I enjoyed this mockumentary. It was very inventive and an intelligent look into the imagined social impact of living life as a zombie. There was an underlying humorous attitude throughout the film, and the look was mostly documentary style with a bit of “Blair Witch” towards the end of the movie.
The characters were very quirky and out of the ordinary in a way that made them seem more like normal people. Micki Schloss plays Frank Velasco – a private detective who finds missing people – and I laughed hysterically at his mannequin scene. I even had to re-watch the scene a couple of times to get all of the hilarity out of my system. It was just a perfectly-edited piece of film.
My netflix synopsis said, “unabashed gore-fest”, so I was a bit disappointed that there was little to no gore. The creativity of the movie was entertaining enough that I didn’t mind the lack of gore, but I will defiantly stop listening to what netflix has to say about movies. I give American Zombie 4 out of 5 hairy eyeballs.
