ZOM­BIELAND (2009) GO! 9.30PM, AV15+, HOR­ROR

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

While not in quite the same league as the clas­sic “zom-com” Shaun of the Dead, this grue­some guilty plea­sure is only a notch be­low. Jesse Eisen­berg stars as neu­rotic nar­ra­tor Colum­bus, a ner­vous young­ster who ap­pears to be the last sur­vivor of a zom­bie apoc­a­lypse and is try­ing make his way back home to his par­ents. Along the way, he runs into gun-tot­ing cow­boy Tal­la­has­see (Woody Har­rel­son), and the two un­likely part­ners hit the road to­gether to try to stay one step ahead of the fe­ro­cious flesh-eaters. But they soon find them­selves with­out weapons or trans­porta­tion af­ter they’re scammed by savvy sis­ters Wi­chita ( Su­per­bad’s Emma Stone) and Lit­tle Rock (Abi­gail Bres­lin). Cir­cum­stances soon throw the four mis­fits to­gether, and the dys­func­tional clan must band to­gether if they’re to sur­vive the car­nage. Full of sharp jokes, stom­ach-turn­ing gore and a sub­lime celebrity cameo, Zom­bieland is an all­round bloody good time. ★★★★

Strik­ing a chord: Woody Har­rel­son and Jesse Eisen­berg in Zom­bieland.
