After being disappointed by several recent genre efforts, like Trailer Park of Terror and Midnight Movie (don't get me started), this one was a pleasant surprise.
The characters are quite likable and the pacing is uniformly excellent with a lot of mileage covered without feeling as such. The film is brimming with funny quips that usually don't feel forced. Plus the zombies are grotty with a solid amount of grue being thrown about.
Just a fun, bubbly zombie-themed indie to deserves a rent. It's kinda like Night of the Creeps--without the alien throat slugs or Mr. Atkins--for a new generation. Of course, being a non-theatrical release and a horror comedy (which seems like box office poison), I doubt most belonging to the young "new generation" of movie-goers will see this. Well, that's their loss. After seeing it, you might even want to buy it, like myself. I saw it in HD on Fear.net's On-Demand service and plan on eventually picking it up on DVD.
