Dance of the Dead
THIS ZOMBIE COMEDY WOULDN'T MAKE IT INTO OUR FAVORITE ZOMBIE MOVIES BUT WE STILL FEEL THAT DANCE OF THE DEAD DESERVES A SPOT ON THE LIST, AS IT IS ACTUALLY SURPRISINGLY FUNNY WHILE REPRESENTING THE HIGH SCHOOL ZOMBIE GENRE TWIST.
Although there have been a lot of zombie comedies over the recent years, the quality has, in our humble opinion, varied a lot. Similarly, we have seen a lot of movie meta marriages like Dead Snow with Nazis and Zombies, Planet Terror with b-movies and zombies and now with this movie high school theme and zombies. And, when you decide to make a high school zombie movie a prom would be the obvious choice for both an occasion for the climax of zombies chasing high school teenagers and for the setting.
Dance of the dead doesn’t exactly add new milestones to the genre, but we still enjoyed a lot of scenes in the movie and particularly the scenes involving a punk rock band keeping the zombies at bay.
So, in short, if you love zombie comedies and have already watched Zombie Land and Shaun of the Dead, Dance of the Dead is actually a good candidate for a movie night.
The verdict: 2.5 out of 5
