The idea of the movie is funny enough, but their subtle humor throughout that really carries the film along. Everyone in the movie is emotionless and dry, so when a neighbor gets eaten by Fido the boy simply hoses the zombie off and buries the woman. No harm done.

Carrie Ann-Moss did well playing the role of t...
