“I seen this at the opening of the Underground Cinema film festival last week – I believe it won and I am not surprised. Itu0026#39;s a mock documentary with a twisted sense of humor about a film crew from the US documenting the day to day life of a family in Dublin whose eldest son is a zombie. Its like Shaun of the Dead meets Spinal Tap only a whole lot grittier (is that a word?). u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSome of the scenes take the zombie theme to a whole new level – for me anyway. Although its an independent movie the characters are very well developed especially the father – when he speaks his heart to the camera – the mother (mothers believe in their children but not usually to this extent – you have to see this) u0026amp; the American in charge of the film crew – excellent. I also liked the Zombieu0026#39;s younger brother and how his issues were almost like that standard older brother/younger brother dynamic. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eVery creative u0026amp; enjoyable and I would guess a cert 15 if not 18 enjoy.”
