Well, how else would you title a zombie movie about undead elementary school kids? The infecting agent, transmitted by chicken nuggets, only affects pre-pubescent humans. I am not making this up.
Elijah Wood plays a substitute teacher in a small-town school who has just rekindled a romance with his high school sweetheart (Alison Pill) when the ‘tweeners start eating the teachers during recess. The adults fight back with Ritalin. Rainn Wilson’s the jock teacher and rival for the sweetheart’s affections.
This one-joke misfire would have benefitted from a bit more subversiveness and way better writing.
Japanese title: Zombie School! (88 min)
