I just watched this flick a few weeks ago- it piqued my nerdiness in a special way. I enjoyed the whole thing, though I thought there were a few story points as well as production issues that detracted (don't want to be too specific to avoid spoilers for any future watchers). Overall, I'd say it's worth the time, especially for those with Netflix streaming service.

Cool, thanks for the review. I watched this one last year; I didn't realize the film makers played themselves though.

I am SO getting a t-shirt with "Jesus was the original zombie" on it. I can offend all sorts of people.

Great review! Thanks.

“We’re Here. We’re Dead. Get used to it.”

Tired of zombies yet?

American Zombie is a documentary/mockumentary that mostly eases off the carnage/gorefest/Romero-topia we've all gotten use to.

The premise is that Zombies or "revenants" have become a growing populace in Los Angeles. Caused by a combination of a virus and a violent death, this new underclass are suffering the pitfalls and perils of any fringe group in our society. They all are trying to just lead normal lives; almost too normal as you squirm and think that you KNOW these people...maybe you ARE one of these people.

They have boring jobs.

They go to therapists.

They have trouble getting credit.

They are exploited at work.

They seek spiritual enlightenment. (Jesus was the original zombie.)

Thus the humor.

The lives of four zombies are chronicled:

Ivan, the zombie slacker who shares an apartment with his "loser human roommate" whose name is on the lease;

Judy the cat loving, lonely vegan Asian zombie who does her best to forget that she's no longer one of the living majority;

Joel the militant, zombie activist whose organization provides job placement, counseling and legal assistance to the disenfranchised resurrected;

and Lisa the hesitant artist/florist who is the haunted by dreams of her brutal death are documented by real life filmmakers John Soloman and Grace Lee who play themselves.

Grace thinks John is an ass because he just won't back off the vulgar questions about what Zombies eat, potentially alienating their subjects. They need the cooperation of the zombie community if they are to get a glimpse into the “Live Dead” gathering, the “Burning Man” of the no-longer living. This leads into a rapid downward spiral of revelations that end with a tragic and somewhat bloody twist.

If you are into zombies and like social satire, this is definitely a movie worth adding to your Netflix queue. If documentaries bore you, I’d say move on to something more traditional.
