I was led to this movie in a roundabout way. Someone mentioned "Diana Moon Glampers" on Twitter and I didn't understand the reference. I looked it up and saw it was in reference to a character from a Kurt Vonnegut short story, "Harrison Bergeron." And "Harrison Bergeron" was the name of a Snapcase song that I've always liked, but I never bothered to look up the meaning of the song title. Anyway, that led me to this movie, which was just serviceable. Nothing great, but I'm glad I now understand the reference.
So, Garret Dillahunt just left one zombie show to go into another? HAHA! All in all, it was exactly what I expected. Stupid dumb fun. I'll admit the whole "alpha" thing was a unique angle on the zombie genre. And I like how they made the Vanderohe character a Joseph Campbell-quoting philosophy major...who's really swole. 😂
I had not seen this movie in over 15 years, so I was due for a re-watch. I definitely understood it a lot better this second time around. It's interesting that before Inception and before the ideas of simulation theory became popular, this movie from 1999 explored many of those very same ideas (ie. multi-layered realities, simulations within simulations, etc.). I'm surprised this movie doesn't get brought up more often. I really love it. And Gretchen Mol is a straight-up dimepiece in this movie. ;P
