The Comic Critic Reviews Aaah Zombies

The premise of Aaah! Zombies!! is pretty funny. A group of kids are accidentally turned into zombies. Here’s the twist: they don’t know it. From their perspective, they can understand what they themselves are saying, but everyone else is all hopped up and running around screaming like bees on cocaine. They see themselves as normal, but everyone else, of course, sees them for the walking corpses they are. To emphasize this, the film is both black-and-white and color, with black-and-white being normal and color being, um, zombie vision. This fun and silly film is more comedy than horror. It doesn’t take itself seriously and you shouldn’t either.
