a.k.a Wasting Away
This film falls square in the middle of the zom-com genre with its fresh take on the ever over done zombie outbreak story.
Some might say that the gimmicks this film relies on are in no way original or innovative. To that I say… who gives a crap. Entertainment is in the eye of the beholder and this movie really is entertaining for the most part.
The story is told from the perspective of the zombies, which in itself isn’t really that original, however what does work well is the use of black and white verse color to differentiate between the two perspectives. I’m not going to spoil it by telling more – just trust me that it works and works well. Unfortunately the film is carried by a mediocre script that loses fuel toward the end.
