Following a plague that has left the world overrun by flesh-devouring zombies, Nerdy college student Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and gun-toting Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) form an unlikely duo. Together, they are about to stare down their most horrifying challenge yet: each other's company!

Play.com Review

Combining the best bits of horror comedy with elements of the classic buddy movie setup, Zombieland is one of the most refreshing movies in a long while, and the most successful undead flick at the box office. Perfect for fans of Shaun Of The Dead, it even has time to cram in a bit of romance, some fantastic Americana-style road movie sections, and one of the best comedy cameos of all-time.

Originally conceived as a TV show - the movie was to be the pilot - Zombieland is brilliantly funny from the get-go - the opening credit sequence backed by Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls" is worth the price of the DVD alone. Whilst Columbus' 33 rules for zombie survival provide some crafty setups and witty visual punch lines, it's Woody Harrelson's Tallahassee who steals the show with a smattering of Deliverance nods and some wonderfully OTT moments - he just loves taking out those zombies! The introduction of Witchita (Emma Stone - Superbad) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin - Little Miss Sunshine) injects some much-needed femininity to proceedings, but they're no shrinking violets, oh no.

Despite all the gore and comedy, the film often finds time for more touching scenes, although it's never afraid to throw in absurdly humorous complications (as witnessed when they descend upon a certain film star's LA mansion) to spice things up. Accompanied by an awesome soundtrack collecting tracks including Raconteurs' "Salute Your Solution", Band Of Horses' "No One's Gonna Love You", and Velvet Underground's "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'", the music choices are just as imaginative as the movie itself. Definitely a contender for the best movie of 2009 with Moon and District 9, we could go on about it all day, but we're running out of space. As Tallahassee himself says at one point, channelling the spirit of Babe, "That'll do, pig."
