What microcosm of mankind shall desperately resist the zombie plague this time around? It all begins in earnest on the stodgy island community of Port Gamble when Tom (Doug Fahi) tells his mother (Linda Jensen) he’s gay and the old lady starts frothing at the mouth — Tom’s boyfriend, Lance (Cooper Hopkins), has to pin her to the wall with a poker before she can eat their faces.
Joining them is Frida (Janette Armand), the second-generation Iranian Princeton co-ed, and Mrs. Banks (Cornelia Moore), the lefty schoolmarm. Less enlightened are Pastor Haggis (Bill Johns), with his “We have the greatest zombie in history on our side: Jesus Christ!”, the redneck Islamophobe Joe (Russell Hodgkinson), and right-wing Mayor Burton (James Mesher).
Kevin Hamedani’s muddy, heavy-handed parody of War on Terror paranoia doesn’t vary much from genre formula, but it does serve up political correctness with refreshingly bad taste.
