Creative “Zombieland” is anything but lifeless

The British film "Shaun of the Dead" pretty much pioneered the sub-genre of zombie-romantic-comedies, or "zom-rom-com's." It perfectly mixed humor, action, horror, romance, and the undead with some memorable characters and a witty script to get an amazing finished product. "Shaun" actually ranks as one of my favorite movies of all time. "Zombieland" is in the same genre as "Shaun." It too, is a zom-rom-com. But the only difference between the two is that "Zombieland" is American. And it's quite proud to display its nationality.
