Christmas with the Dead
When it comes to this time of year it is great to sit down and watch some seasonal films that warm the very corners of our hearts and help ignite the Christmas spirit. If you are looking for a film that can do all that and also has zombies, then Christmas with the Dead is the movie for you!
Calvin and his wife Ella are looking forward to Christmas. Well, actually it is Ella who is really looking forward to Christmas. Calvin is struggling to share her passion and wanders off to have a sneaky nap. It’s probably the smartest move he could have made, because while he is asleep, a freak storm in space causes everyone in Mud Creek to turn into “snappers” (yeah, that means zombies).
Whether it is guilt, madness or he suddenly sees the light, Calvin wants to give his now incarcerated zombie wife the best little Christmas ever. Trouble is, that means going outside. For the first time in months Calvin ventures outdoors to track down all the necessary ingredients to make the perfect Christmas for Ella. G.M. the neighbourhood garbage man turned zombie hunter joins Calvin on his quest. It’s going to take all their resources, improvisational abilities, determination plus G.M’s zombie slaying skills to survive the many obstacles that stand in their way of the ultimate Christmas, not least of which, because it is June.
Christmas with the Dead is blessed with an amazing cast and a great story line. It is not a gore-fest zombie flick, nor is it likely to give you nightmares. It does however give you a fairly plausible human reaction to how most of us would respond to an apocalypse: shock and disbelief followed by a desperate attempt to make things seem normal. Fans of the zombie genre who are looking for a good human story set around Christmas will love this movie. There are zombies, weapons, guns, more zombies, bad guys, tension and of course, Christmas.
Christmas with the Dead Verdict
Christmas with the Dead is an entertaining combination of zombie apocalypse meets the most wonderful time of the year. If you love the zombie genre and are looking for something that gets you in the Christmas mood, Christmas with the Dead is an ideal choice. It has a great cast, engaging story and a different take on the host of different zombie types we have seen in recent years. Christmas with the Dead is a Christmas movie with a zombie twist that will warm your heart, and hopefully leave it still beating!
