Plot Outline:

Grace Lee tries her hand at a mockumentary this time 'round, poking fun at the pretensions of documentary filmmaking with a cinéma vérité-style "investigation" of Los Angeles zombies (themselves a satire of marginalized urban communities). Lee and collaborator John Solomon follow four people infected by the virus and divided on the issues. It's all very PC — some zombies insist on the proper nomenclature "revenants" and stage rallies to encourage zombie-awareness, albeit remaining apprehensive about their taboo, people-eating habits.

This was just.. bad. It's listed as comedy/horror. It wasn't funny. Or scary. Why was this movie made? It kinda, sorta, if you tilt it the right way has something resembling a plot. I think. The characters are annoying. The "climax" is anti-climactic; you don't give a crap about the story or any of the characters for there to be an actual climax. The climax for me was the credits rolling. Having my wisdom teeth removed (awake) was more entertaining and less painful than sitting through this movie. Can I have my ninety minutes back?

I was really expecting to like this mockumentary & at 1st I did but after awhile it just went from good to boring.American Zombie was a good idea & had a couple good parts here & there but it didnt have enough to keep my interest
