ZOMBIE NIGHT (VSC, 2013) D: John Gulager, w/ Daryl Hannah, Anthony Michael Hall. Rating: NNN; DVD package: NN Rating: NNN
Zombie Night brings enough energy, skill and gore to its basic Night Of The Living Dead story to provide light entertainment on a chilly night.
When the dead start walking and chomping, one suburban family tries to defend their home, while another struggles to come together and find temporary shelter.
The structure keeps the action flowing, and director John Gulager makes the most of it with a restless camera, pounding score and close-up, messy, traumatizing zombie-killing, done more with blunt instruments than with guns.
Daryl Hannah and Anthony Michael Hall as one set of parents do solid character work even while running and screaming, and it's a treat to see former Partridge Family mom Shirley Jones taking big bites from her near and dear ones.
The extras are more funny than informative, and very short.
