Double Dose of the Dead: Survival of the Dead and Zombieland Reviews
Now this is how we like kicking off the week! Two reviews to get fans of the living dead (both running and shambling) all feverish with anticipation. Things are looking sweet in the land of the dead, folks! Get ready for lots of carnage!
A cowardly shut-in named Columbus (Eisenberg) is forced to join up with a seasoned zombie slayer named Tallahassee (Harrelson) in order to survive. As Tallahassee sets out on a mission to find the last Twinkie on Earth, the two men meet up with Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), two young girls who have resorted to some rather unorthodox methods to survive amidst the chaos. Reluctant partners in the battle against the undead, all four soon begin to wonder if they might not be better off on their own.
Survival of the Dead Synopsis
On a small island off North America's coast, the dead rise to menace the living. Yet...the islanders can't bring themselves to exterminate their loved ones, despite the growing danger from those the once held dear. A rebel among them hunts down all the zombies he can find, only to be banished from the island for assassinating his neighbors and friends. On the mainland, bent on revenge, he encounters a small band of survivors in search of an oasis on which to build a new life. Barely surviving an attack from a mass of ravenous flesh-eaters, they commandeer a zombie-infested ferry and sail to the island. There, to their horror, they discover that the locals have chained the dead inside their homes, pretending to live 'normal' lives...with bloody consequences. What ensues is a desperate struggle for survival and the answer to a question never posed in Romero's Dead films: Can the living ever live in peace with the dead?
