‘Leave it to Beaver’ with teeth!!! If you want to like zombies but you find them too scary, then you’ll enjoy this comedy about a post-Zombie Wars America rooted in the Ozzie and Harriet era.

In this alternate world, Zombies have been domesticated thanks to the technology of the omnipresent Corporate monster Zomcon – everyone who’s anyone has a zombie slave at their disposal. But, when Timmy Robinson’s status-seeking mom gets their family its own zombie, not everything turns out quite as planned.

I found the concept original and fun (even if they played loose with zombie rules). It’s an amusing mish-mash of worlds and they made a low-budget film that works. The cast is very good and the story is well-penned, but the last act drags on somewhat and suffers from a low production value.

Could have been better, but it’s a good and safe time out with the living dead.
