Mike Kellerman wakes up to find himself dead. The vehicle he was being transported in crashed and he escapes the wreckage, to find himself in the middle of a zombie outbreak. In an homage to the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, he comes upon a family that's barricaded themselves in a house--and has to flee when he realizes they are shooting at him--because he's a zombie! You see, unlike shambling undead around him he has retained his mental abilities. Soon, he meets up with Brent, who fills him in as to what's going on. Brent is also a coherent flesh-eater.
However, Mike has amnesia--he has no idea how he died and he finds an engagement ring in his pocket, which makes him recall that he was going to propose to his blonde girlfriend. But it's been three years since that fateful night. So, with little to lose he becomes determined to find her and propose. Brent likes his enthusiasm and so the two embark on a zombie road trip, meeting weird characters along the way. In fact, they adopt a "stupid" zombie, Cheese, who they treat like a pet dog. Of course, there are obstacles--such as the agency who has created the zombies to begin with--and their zombie hunters, one of whom looks like Wolverine.
My only gripe is that I didn't feel that there was much connection between Mike and his girlfriend--there needed to be some flashbacks with them interacting with one another, to show their love, as this is what the whole movie hinges on. Nevertheless, for a low-budget, independent film, this has excellent production values and impressive zombie gore. It's also a unique take on an overdone genre, having "smart zombies" trying to continue their lives. Recommended.
