The film takes place in a 1950s-esque alternate universe where radiation from space has turned the dead into zombies. This radiation still plagues humanity, as all those who die after the original contamination turn into the undead. In order to continue living normal lives, communities are fenced with the help of a governing corporation named Zomcon. Zomcon provides collars with accompanying remote controls to control the zombies’ hunger for flesh so as to use them as slaves or servants.
The setting of this movie is charming and unique. Unlike all the other post-apocalyptic, gloomy surroundings of other zombie movies, here the story sets place in a 50s suburbia with green lawns and sunny days witch adds a certain freshness into the whole movie. Carrie Ann Moss is great as your typical house-wife (or is she?) and together with Dylan Baker they make a really convincing couple.
It’s a story told with happy heart and wide appeal that is brought to life vividly by the film’s all-round strong cast. It’s one of those works where it really shows through that everyone involved got a kick out of taking part. It’s also fun imagining what Billy Connelly learning his script must have been like…
So in conclusion, it is probable you will appreciate the humor of this film unless your father tried to eat you.
