logoDirector: Martijn Smits, Erwin van den Eshof

Writer: Tijs van Marle (Screenplay)

Starring: Yahya Gaier, Mimoun Ouled Radi, Gigi Ravelli, Sergio Hasselbaink, Uriah Arnhem, Noel Deelen, Nadia Poeschmann, Carlo Boszhard

 

Plot: The bizarre story takes place in Amsterdam-West, where a virus turns people into bloodthirsty zombies. A group of survivors have to team up to survive.

 

Verdict: Mad and Wonderful

 

Story: We follow two brothers, two gangster friends, a beautiful female police officer and a shady business man as they try to escape Amsterdam after a zombie outbreak. We see how one wants to save a love interest from a seemingly impossible situation, while greed takes over others. We see how the group puts together of mostly idiots have to try and find weapons to survive and achieve their goals by escaping the danger.group

Simply put this is a crazy film, it makes fun of nearly every zombie film stereotype and is filled with plenty of over the top zombie kills. What makes these kills memorable is that they seem to come from the most random objects including bowling balls, tennis ball gun and giant mallet with many more. This is hugely enjoyable if not barmy storyline that you will remember and continue laughing after it has finished. (7/10)
