(out of 5)

Yet again, the world has been destroyed by a zombie virus that turns people into flesh-eating monsters. Among the few survivors is a neurotic, list-obsessed young man () who teams up with a trash-talking, Twinkie-loving cowboy () as they travel the country looking for safe haven between bouts of gunning down undead hordes. Surviving killers is nothing compared to the pangs of love, so when they pick up a sexy and self-involved gal () and her equally snarky sister () they have to outmaneuver some healthy humans as well. There’s something insidious about the recent proliferation of zombie movies: the indulgence in rampant shootings of humans who, thankfully, are not really human and therefore charge no moral fee is indulged in quite often, here with only the faintest trace of humour and a plot whose like we have seen many times before. The film is too smugly assured of its own quirkiness to really fly, but a sequence involving  as himself is fun.
