Original Review by Jonathan Broxton

A raucous comedy-horror with a significant splatter factor, Zombieland stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin as the four human survivors of an apocalypse in which a Mad Cow-like disease has turned the majority of the world’s population into flesh-eating zombies. As the four brave heroes track across America, only their resourcefulness and their improvised weaponry stand between them and their being eaten by the walking undead… and hilarity ensues.

The film, which has been called the American answer to Shaun of the Dead, is directed by Ruben Fleischer, and has an original score by composer and former record producer David Sardy, who first came to prominence with his Vegas jazz score for the film 21 in 2008. Read more…
