Another buddy road trip movie, with zombies. Dark comedy with lots of funny lines, interesting zombies and of course, Bill Murray as a, how do I explain this without spoilers, er, celebrity?
Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin make up the merry band that proves a zombie apocalypse makes for strange bedfellows as they trek across America to find a sanctuary without biters.
Shaun of the Dead set a gold standard for the funny zombie movie and to me, Z-Land takes a good nibble at the edges, but not quite a full bite.
The rules of survival are a running gag of this movie and even though we don’t know all the list, the accumulation of the list itself is important.
Funny as a comedy, Z-Land also has some very deep moments all mixed in with the absurd and gross.
