This thread has come back to life! Aiee! Anyway, I finally got around to seeing the movie and I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to. Is it a social satire on how the oppressed class will eventually rise up to destroy a corrupt, dominating power structure? Is it about seeing how many headshots you can get away with in a sorta-mainstream R rated movie? Is it about the celebration of the magic of movies where the sight of a guy getting blown up by his own grenade can be really funny? I don't know, but it was a lean, fun film and nobody threw a cream pie into a zombie's face.
Just a question if anyone can clear this for me. Can I assume the story is set in real-time compared to the original night of the living dead?
It seems as if in the beginning they alluded to that the zombie outbreak occured in the 1960s and with Asia Argento saying she grew up in the city her whole life, zombies have run around the world for 40+ years.
Yeah, that's what I'd been wondering... it seems like the timeline's in real time, but I'm still not really positive that it is... I'd say, "maybe Land's in the 80's," but the rich people's fashion and decor and stuff's too modern...
Even in the face of the zombie armageddon the fashion industry is not going to stand still.
