Aaah! Zombies!! (2007)

Aaah! Zombies!! (2007)

Directed by: Matthew Kohnen

Starring: Matthew Davis, Julianna Robinson, Michael Grant Terry

Back in December, I made a decision to stop watching zombie movies for a while. I’m honestly a little amazed that I managed to go five whole months without seeing another one, and it was actually really nice. Aaah! Zombies!! did nothing to make me regret my decision, either.

Four idiot teenagers eat some ice cream laced with a secret government super-soldier serum and turn into zombies. However, they don’t realize that they’re zombies, and after they meet a soldier who also seems to be one of them, they actually start thinking that everyone ELSE are zombies. They eventually learn the truth and go off to start their own zombie-friendly community.

The way they do the effect of the main characters being zombies but not knowing it is to separate “real life” as being black and white, and the zombies’ perception in color, where everybody else are going really fast, but the characters look normal, apart from their injuries. Which is fine and all, but even the slightest amount of thought into the parts where they switch back and forth and they show that it really doesn’t make any sense how the zombies could be bowling, or talking with normal people, or fucking anything else they ever do. Actually, NOTHING in this movie holds up to even the most cursory amount of scrutiny, and it’s not even close to being funny enough to make you suspend your disbelief for the sake of the writing. Because it isn’t funny at all. Fucking zombie movies.
