"What is this white stuff and why do I have an asian name when I'm white?"

The tagline is, "When there's snow more room in hell", so right off you know this is a zombedy (zombie comedy). The basic plot of the movie is that the zombies are taking advantage of the snow to attack humans, and a nerdy film club group must save Seattle with the help of a stranger, but that entails more then they bargained for.

"Uh oh, guess what happened!"

The Story:
"The strange white substance began falling shortly after midnight and continues to fall throughout the region. Some areas are reporting accumulations as high as 2 inches, making travel by foot difficult, if not impossible. Officials are urging everyone to stay indoors until they are able to determine what all the white stuff is". This is the news report at the beginning of the movie.

"These dudes are going to save the city?"

"Do not open the doors for the zombies, even if they look cold!" Hahaha. Anyways, so cut to the film club group which is four nerds. Hey wait, that's me! There's a knock on the door, and in comes Ellipses, who'se parents were hippies. Eli organizes the group to save the city, and no they don't use guns, you'll have to buy it to see the weird weapons they choose.

"Take a guess who's getting eaten here!"

The Rating:
First off I have to say the zombies were incredible, in fact they were better then most genre films. The storyline and music were good, and overall the movie was very well put together. The only problem was that this was a zombedy, and it really just wasn't my brand of humor.


Initially I was going to give this a 6, but after a second viewing I liked it a lot better. I would definitely pay the 7$ to add this to my ever-growing collection of zombie movies. 7 out of 10!
