A Look at the Popular Zombies
20 June 2015 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Doc of the Dead (2014)

*** (out of 4)

Did we really need another documentary about zombies? Well, yes, actually because this one here looks at the zombie film from a new perspective. Over the past five years or so the zombie movies and television shows have become more popular than any other monster so this documentary takes a look at the recent phenomenon and asks why.

Of course, we also take a quick look at zombie history where we learn about WHITE ZOMBIE, I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE and of course how everything changed with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and DAWN OF THE DEAD. From here we see clips from THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD and the current crop of things like The Walking Dead. George Romero, Bruce Campbell, Greg Nicotero, Alex Cox, Tom Savini, Joanna Angel, Stuart Gordon, John Russo, Simon Pegg, Judith O'Dea and Robert Kirkman are just a few of the people interviewed.

Overall this is a pretty good look at the recent zombie movement. If you're unfamiliar with some of the older movies then you're going to get a good education on them. The highlight of this is just the debates about whether it's better to be a slow or a fast zombie. Then we get some nice discussions about zombie walks and even zombie weddings. If you're a fan of zombies then you'll find yourself entertained.
