Review by Brother Reed

Every horror aficionado has a zombie survival plan.

There’s something about the zombie sub-genre of horror flicks that has inspired fierce devotion from the geek community. If you don’t believe me, try calling 28 Days Later a zombie film and see how quickly you are corrected on your technical error. Being something of a geek myself I find it kind of endearing. I just don’t know why it had to be zombies. Maybe it’s the desire to control an imagined scenario, or a kind of superiority stemming from one’s imagined tactical ability. Maybe it’s just a fun mental exercise. Whatever the reason, a lot of people have a detailed and specific plan as to what they would do in the event that corpses begin rising from their graves and ambling hungrily through the streets like Lindsay Lohan after a night of heavy drinking.
