ordinary, decent zombies
Portrait of a Zombie is a witty re-imagining of the well worked undead theme. In this feature, an ordinary, working class family must deal with the fall out from their son’s transformation to a zombie. What sets this piece apart from others is the down-to- earth feel, as if zombification were just another in a long line of working class problems. It is pretty difficult not to sympathise and empathise with Billy, the zombie son and his family and friends as they try to come to terms with the new situation. Billy’s parents are central, unifying characters in the movie and the superb acting of Geraldine MacAlinden in particular brings a touch of humanity to tale. The sombre theme is elevated to pure black magic by the inclusion of witty, biting dialogue. POAZ will not disappoint hardcore horror fan. There is plenty of blood, goo and brain eating. However, some of the gore is strictly for those with an iron stomach. If you want a taste (sic!) of the real Ireland , infused with zombie apocalypse, Portrait is the one for you.
TAKE THIS BODY AND EAT IT
This film is done documentary style and is heavy into interviews. The movie opens with glimpses of news headlines. We know the meat is tainted. People have a virus and eat flesh and something about the Goat’s Head pub.
We discover the Murphy family wants to care for their son Billy, who as been turned into a zombie. This causes problems with the neighbors who want all zombies dead and gone. While the film has some zombie action, it is at a painfully slow pace.
Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
