Comedy, Horror
The world is overtaken by a zombie plague, and a ragtag team of human survivors heads for the West Coast in Zombieland, the latest movie to use the undead for laughs. The cast features an amped-up Woody Harrelson and a gracefully neurotic Jesse Eisenberg, a comic team that balances out quite nicely. Throw in some decent hard-core zombie gore, and you get something that is a hell of a lot better than that last George Romero disaster, Diary of the Dead. Harrelson plays an alpha male who digs killing zombies and craves Twinkies, while Eisenberg plays a college student who has managed to survive by following a simple set of rules. The movie is funny, but it does lose some steam in its final act. It contains one of the best cameos in cinema history.

Charleston City Paper This year gave us a host of great films — one even had zombies In many areas, 2009 sucked profoundly — bad economy, bickering health-scare debate, the Yankees winning the World Series again. But at the movies, things were much better. In some years, the last couple of films on my top 10 list just fill out space; in 2009, I agonized over terrific films that didn't quite make the cut. If you're looking for entertainment or dramatic tension over the next few months, your Netflix queue could be an embarrassment of riches. by Scott Renshaw 12/30/2009
The Coast Halifax Zombieland brainless fun Will Jesse Eisenberg’s career relegated to playing neurotic 20-something virgins in movies with the suffix “-land”? by Mark Palermo 10/08/2009
Colorado Springs Independent Brain food The flesh-eating undead are not, understandably, every movie-goer's taste. But this time, skipping the latest zombie flick will mean missing what may be the funniest American comedy of 2009. by Scott Renshaw 10/01/2009
Charleston City Paper Zombieland feels like Ferris Bueller's Day of the Dead Zombieland shares a sensibility that should be familiar to video gamers. It aims for as high a body count as possible, all in an exploration of the maximum number of ways that the bodies of the living dead can be reduced to jelly. by Felicia Feaster 09/30/2009
