Zombieworld (Image/DreadCentral DVD)

I like zombie movies. If you don't, you can stop reading this review because ZOMBIEworld is a whole lotta zombie. I would urge those of you who dislike zombie fiction to give this one a chance as it is just a little different than some of the other feature length entertainment you may be used to. For starters it's a collection of short zombie fiction. This is not a preconstructed set of stories put together with a wrap story to make a feature length anthology picture. The benefit of that is that you get a cross section of stories, talent, zombie styles and some humor in between the shorts.

It has a variety of zombie shorts that focus on different mythologies and storytelling methods to create the broadest possible array of potential zombie stories. Some of these things are downright splatter flicks with beautiful green slime spraying everywhere while another might feature... I don't know... Jesus (you like him very much, but he cannot hit a curve ball?). Fun effects and even though some of the entries include CG splat or blood, I'm going to give it a pass. Friggin Santa Claus shows up. It's gonzo, and that is why it works better than some recent, serious zombie fiction. Because these aren't full length features, they don't fuck up a good thing by including needless dialogue or meaningless character development. The get to the point and then destroy the head or remove the brain.

Filmmakers include Adam Myette O’Brien, Adriàn Cardona, Cameron McCulloch, David Muñoz, Jared Marshall, Jesse Baget, Jonathan Brown, Luke Giudici, Paul Shrimpton, Peter Horn, Tomy Woodard, Vedran Marjanovic, and Zach Ramelan.

I am strongly recommending this to zombie enthusiasts. Watch it in one batch or watch a little at a time. My favorite is the beach story. Love those kill scenes, the irony and the rays. I had the pleasure of seeing this before when judging the Killer Film Fest, and voted for it there too. Looks great and the damn cover is gorgeous!

You can pick up Zombieworld now.

From Image:

In Zombieworld, there is nowhere to hide…nowhere to run…the Zombie Apocalypse has come, and our world now belongs to the dead! From Ireland, Canada, Australia, Europe and all over the U.S., the bone-chilling news reports tell the same gruesome tale – walking corpses terrorize and devour the living. Only a few desperate humans find the courage to stand and fight for their last chance at survival. But the hordes of undead keep coming, and there’s only one thing on the menu – us.
