Dead Meat Walking - A Zombie Walk Documentary

70 min minutes

What’s the deal with all the zombie walks? That’s the whole premise of Dead Meat Walking, and it’s not quite involving enough to demand your interest for its full runtime. Once you get through the novelty of seeing all the different types of zombies (Mr. Rogers zombie! Bacon zombie! Zombie Jesus!) and enjoying a moment of hometown pride (Seattle’s own ZomBcon is heavily featured) it gets more than a little repetitive. Dead Meat Walking does occasionally resonate with something new for hardcore fans, though; one of the “experts” points out that after long love affairs with Dracula and the wolfman, zombies are “the first third-world monster” to explode to popularity in the age of globalization. A little more observation like that would have gone a long way. (PAUL CONSTANT)
