American Zombie (2007)

Film details


Satirical horror film. A documentary filmmaker is dragged into a film project by friend John, who has a fascination with zombies in a society where zombies live amongst the living. There are three sorts of zombies, the mindless, shambling type; those of limited intelligence exploited in repetitive, mundane sweatshop work; and those who are highly intelligent, integrated into society and top jobs, and politically active in anti-discrimination zombie groups. The filmmakers discover the truth behind the respectable facade of the latter.
