On the night of the prom, the dead come back to life and it’s up to the people who couldn’t get a date to save the day.
Surprisingly good for its low budget and a pretty fun zomcom. The acting is actually not that bad. Clearly not professionals, but they all do fine. There were a few plot points which were fairly original as well, and some of the deaths weren’t predictable which was a nice addition.
The effects aren’t the best, but considering it’s a comedy that’s not too important and they aren’t that bad anyway. The zombies were cool enough and they had a fair amount of screen time, but the body count was pretty low and we didn’t get too see much on-screen gore which was disappointing.
The characters were pretty typical highschool film characters and I don’t think it really used this to its advantage. They could’ve either had more depth, or been more comical in their traits (not complete caricatures, but they were overall a little bleh so a little life wouldn’t have hurt). Some of them were better than others; Kyle and Jimmy were probably the most likable and most natural.
Fast paced, but not annoyingly so, this manages to be fun, but not much more than that. A higher body count and more focus on ‘horror’ instead of comedy would’ve been better because, while it was amusing, it wasn’t hilarious, and some tension and character investment would’ve helped.
