Doc of the Dead

"Doc of the Dead" (2014, Alexandre O. Philippe, Exhibit A Pictures, Geekscape Productions, RedLetterMedia, EPIX) is a zombie documentary.

With viewpoints from Simon Pegg, Bruce Campbell, George A. Romero, Fran Kranz, Tom Savini, Max Brooks, S.G. Browne, Greg Nicotero, Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Stuart Gordon, Alex Cox, Judith O'Dea, Russell Streiner, John Harrison, John A. Russo and Joanna Angel, it is a fabulous and funny geekfest!

The documentary goes through film, literature and other pop culture zombieness. With clips from various favourites and a lot of ground covered, this documentary keeps you enthralled and giggling. A really fun and insightful hour and twenty-one minutes, it's a must see for any horror or zombie fan. Whilst it's not an in-depth analysis of the horror genre, it is an appetite whetter.

Imagine yourself sat at a table with all these genre legends, sharing pizza and bantering about zombies... This is essentially the mood of this documentary.
