ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction

September 7, 2009

The Rakkautta & Anarkiaa (that’d be Finnish for Love & Anarchy) film festival is kicking off in a few days, and a friend pointed out to me that a new zombie movie is airing. Advertised as “a political zomedy” ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction pokes fun at US politics while delivering fine-looking zombie action. See the trailer, it’s worth it for the ending sentence alone.

Zombie comedies seem to be a bit of a hit these days, and I really don’t fault it. As with many things in life, something that can’t – or rather doesn’t – poke fun at itself can quickly grow stagnant and uninteresting. Most of the zomcoms I’ve seen also demonstrate a love for the genre as a whole, with nods to classic films, attention to gore and adherence to genre tradition. Is there something more to ask for?
