Favorite quote: Anything that is sung. Anything.
Thoughts: Okay, when your DVD arrives in an envelope hand-addressed by the director, you know you’ve hit gold. Whether the movie’s awful or incredible, it’s going to be a rocking evening.
Luckily, this time the movie was incredible.
I love, love, looooooove Zombie Love. It’s a short (about 40 minutes long), and I really hope that Van Berckelaer goes on to fulfill her dream of creating a full-length movie based on the concept. I mean, what’s not to like? Zombie romance! Song and dance! Cheesy humor! Some gore! I think I’m girl-crushing.
What makes this film especially gush-worthy is the fact that, humorous though it may be, the plot is centered around a zombie/human romance that ends positively. Dante (the zom) is in full control of his faculties. Claudia (the girl) is fully aware of Dante’s status as a zombie, but is still keenly interested in him. In fact, she loves him because he’s a zombie, not in spite of the fact. How cute is that? We need more of this! Moar!
