Part of THE WORKS – BILL MURRAY. In a sea of derivative zombie films, Zombieland offers something truly original to the living dead genre!
The zombie apocalypse has broken out once again but, this time, a group of unlikely fellows band together across the United States in search of something…the last twinkie, family members, and an amusement park. While the new family takes some adjustment, instead of being the real problem to look out for, they become each others saviors. Hilarious, fresh, and full of tension, Zombieland could be considered the perfect U.S. follow up to England’s Shaun of the Dead.
The movie also includes one of the best cameos in cinematic history. We won’t give it away but its involvement in our summer The Works series may just be a spoiler.
