Town of the Living Dead cast

"Town of the Living Dead " review by Sundi 10/7/14
Premieres Tuesday 10/7 10/9c on Syfy

I didn’t know one thing about "Town of the Living Dead" before I pushed play on my DVD player, so it was with a giant huff and eye roll that I sat down to watch yet ANOTHER zombie show. But this show is not your run-of-the-mill zombie show; it's a reality show about a group of folks trying to make a zombie movie in a tiny town in Alabama.


This group of folks have been working on this movie for the better part of six years, and it seems like everything that can go wrong has. There's a motherly executive producer that foots the bill for the movie and often has her credit card declined. You also have the aspiring auteur director that moonlights at Radio Shack but doesn’t have enough cash in his pocket to buy a turkey sandwich.


The fictional movie, "Thr33 Days Dead", is not received well by the town, and sometimes they picket the set and call 911 because having a bunch of dead people running around “don’t seem Christian.” The effects are terrible, the writing is horrible, and the folks are pretty amateur, but I sure did enjoy seeing them take a stab at making a movie.


This is a clever little show that capitalizes on the recent zombie craze (and the media over-saturation). It's a pretty good mix of AMC's "Small Town Security" and Syfy's "Face Off"; it made me chuckle out loud several times.
