Plot: a horror comedy musical following Anna and her friends as they try to survive the zombie apocalypse during Christmas

Tara and I went into this with high hopes and while I wasn’t in love with it, she was just plain disappointed. That’s not to say it didn’t have it’s merits but we both thought it could have been better, Tara just a little more.

Tara wanted to be funnier and more hopeful. She didn’t think it was rewatchable either but I did. It did end up being darker than I thought and could have had more jokes.

The innovation was really good, lotta good zombie kills. It followed rules and had good dialogue. I thought a few people were likable. For me it was the Train to Busan of zombie comedies and though it isn’t quite as good as train is, I still enjoyed it.

Tara gave it a 53 and I scored it a 71.
