Wow. As far as I’m concerned, this is the gold standard for zombie movies, and maybe all horror movies. Beautifully shot, wicked soundtrack, fantastic acting, unpredictable storyline - even for a zombie movie! - this one’s got it all. The zombies are truly terrifying, and the anti-soundtrack supplied by Godspeed! You Black Emperor is sublime. The scenes can be really fucking upsetting, or funny, or sweet, or pulse-pounding. I can’t talk enough about this movie. If you haven’t seen it, see it. If you’ve already seen it, watch it again. If you’re in the movie, let me know when the third one is coming out; I’m waiting.
