Tonight's movie turned out to be much better than I expected. I had seen it listed on netflix, but when I read the description, I never got too excited. I can't believe I waited so long to watch it because it was awesome. The movie is a pretty standard idea, which is that a military barrel contaminates a local town and soon zombies are out killing everyone. The big difference with this movie is that it is from the perspective of the zombies and the big kicker is that they don't know they are zombies.

The zombies actually think they are super soldiers and that some contaminated ice cream has given them superhuman strength and invulnerability. The movie does an awesome job switching back and forth between what the zombies see and what everyone else can see. In the zombie view, everything looks normal and they can understand each other just fine. The problem they have is that everyone else moves very quickly and talk in a fast, high pitched voice that they can't understand. The zombies start to think that the whole town is infected and that they are the only ones left alive who must destroy all of the infected.

The zombies distorted reality turns out to be very funny as they start getting strange cravings and they start to rot and fall apart. While not the greatest movie ever, I would give it a 4/5 because every zombie lover should see this one at least once. Getting to see everything from the zombie's point of view is really awesome and I thought it was a neat idea in general.

Now for my zombie review even though I have already said almost everything. The zombies are almost immortal and can continue to operate parts of their body when separated from the head. Only complete destruction of the brain will kill them. They also have super strength and extra durability in general. Their only problem is that reality is distorted to them so it gives difficult for them to fight effectively in a combat situation.
