Rating: 8/10 -- Proves that there's still lots of humor and insight to be found in the walking dead. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- [Director] Lee covers all bases and when we least expect it, she also manages to sneak in a creepy zombie flick... Full Review

Rating: 4.5/5 -- Besides managing to be a statement on racism, a parody of a documentary, and an enjoyable character conflict between two egotistical directors, it's also a straight up zombie comedy! Full Review
Mar 29, 2008
Rating: B+ -- Lee wants to make an up-with-dead-people portrait that shines light on how the diverse zombie community integrates into the city. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- It is essentially a one-joke premise and while it might have played beautifully as a 30-minute short subject, there just isn't enough to it to sustain itself as a 90-minute feature. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- American Zombie works on several levels of satire. Full Review

If Lee intended primarily to spoof documentary conventions, she should have chosen a theme less commercially overexposed -- and worked harder at making it more than just sorta-kinda humorous.

Product Description:

Comedy, documentary, and horror collide with violently funny results in this zombie mockumentary. Four zombies lie at the heart of the film: a 'zine-making convenience store worker, an activist working for the rights of zombies everywhere, an amnesiac florist, and a romance-craving zombie whose heart may not beat but still aches for a husband. Director Grace Lee (THE GRACE LEE PROJECT) uses her background in documentary filmmaking to create AMERICAN ZOMBIE, a film where zombies walk among us.

Description by Cinema Libre Studio:

Despite their wildly different working styles, Grace and John manage to chronicle the hopes and dreams of four fascinating subjects: IVAN, a convenience-store clerk who longs for a career in publishing; LISA, a florist trying to recover her lost memories; JUDY, a hopeless romantic who learns to accept her true nature; and JOEL (pronounced "Ho-El"), a committed political activist striving for zombie rights. As Grace strives to get to know the zombies "on their own terms," John is eager to uncover their darker side and rallies to get the crew permission to shoot at a three-day, zombies-only retreat called Live Dead where the documentary takes an unexpected - and dangerous - turn. What transpires there is beyond anything the filmmakers could imagine, as they are forced to re-evaluate their ideas about tolerance, identity politics and the future of the human race.
