The world is overtaken by a zombie plague, and a ragtag team of human survivors heads for the West Coast in Zombieland
, the latest movie to use the undead for laughs. The cast features an amped-up Woody Harrelson and a gracefully neurotic Jesse Eisenberg, a comic team that balances out quite nicely. Throw in some decent hard-core zombie gore, and you get something that is a hell of a lot better than that last George Romero disaster, Diary of the Dead
. Harrelson plays an alpha male who digs killing zombies and craves Twinkies, while Eisenberg plays a college student who has managed to survive by following a simple set of rules. The movie is funny, but it does lose some steam in its final act. It contains one of the best cameos in cinema history.
