American Zombie

Filmmakers Grace Lee (“The Grace Lee Project”) and John Solomon (“Nonsense Man”) team up to shoot a documentary about high-functioning zombies living in Los Angeles and their struggles to gain acceptance in human society. Despite their wildly different working styles, Grace and John manage to chronicle the hopes and dreams of four fascinating subjects: IVAN, a convenience-store clerk who longs for a career in publishing; LISA, a florist trying to recover her lost memories; JUDY, a hopeless romantic who learns to accept her true nature; and JOEL (pronounced “Yo-El”), a committed political activist striving for zombie rights. As Grace strives to get to know the zombies “on their own terms,” John is eager to uncover their darker side and rallies to get the crew permission to shoot at a three-day, zombies-only retreat called Live Dead where the documentary takes an unexpected — and dangerous — turn. What transpires there is beyond anything the filmmakers could imagine, as they are forced to re-evaluate their ideas about tolerance, identity politics and the future of the human race.

    If you’re looking for a horror film….this isn’t it. Not your typical horror OR zombie flick. Some holes in the story, some lack of information. Wasn’t scary or extremely funny, but it WAS interesting enough to watch the entire movie. Overall it was original, decently written, somewhat witty, and at times, funny. I give it 3 out of 5 brains

    the other humans at live dead i mean…

  10. gibsonguru15 says:

    They leave out these details for a reason. use your imagination. Here is my theory: the blue liquid seems to be a hallucinogenic drug, and im guessing why they gave it to john was to make him low level zombie when he got bitten, but he wouldnt inject it so he turned into a mid-zombie. The “new world order”= killing/converting all the humans. the other humans seem to be willing to become zombies, and in turn teach every1 at live dead how to convert zombies while keeping low profile.
