Zombies Doing Shakespeare
From reading the other reviews of this movie, what I thought was an incredibly obvious homage to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (down to the balcony scene!) apparently wasn't that obvious to the rest of the audience! I really enjoyed the newest take on the Zombie genre and this movie was a great balance between the gore we've come to expect and love in Zombie movies but with en equal dose of humanity, comedy, and creepiness. Rob Corddry ads humor as R's best friend (think Zombie Mercutio) and Nicholas Hoult has just the right amount of melancholy about being a Zombie; not too or this "emo kid-zombie" would get annoying. Teresa Palmer does a nice job as Julie (Juliet) and who can say no to John Malkovich as the heart-broken, zombie hating father/general?
All in all this movie was a great date-night movie! It had just enough action, gore, love, comedy and pop-culture to keep everyone entertained! And rounding it all out with a great soundtrack, this may be a movie I end up buying!
