Spoiler alert! I saw Zombieland in the theater in 2009 when it arrived in theatres, and meant to watch it again on Netflix but then it disappeared from the Instant Watch list.  Luckily, Encore Action came to the rescue.

Zombieland is the tale of 4 survivors of an apparent zombie invasion.  They meet up, and after getting through some trust issues, band together to fulfill goals to get a Twinkie, get to an amusement park and maybe get to Columbus, Ohio.  The film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin.

I would almost want to survive a zombie apocalypse, if only for the no-guilt looting opportunities.

A lot of this movie is about timing, delivery and action, so I can’t talk too much about it without being a Spoilerfest, and while I know I warned about it, I know that people keep reading even when they haven’t seen something yet.  I can say that as someone who isn’t a big horror fan, I LOVED this movie. I can definitely recommend watching it, and I think there are many people who would be happy to add this to their DVD collection.

Zombieland is available on DVD from Amazon for $15.99.
