It was only a matter of time before Schwarzenegger did a zombie flick

It was only a matter of time before Schwa-chan showed up in a zombie flick. Hell, Seagal did one, and it was one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen.

Plot has to do with a caring father trying to protect his infected daughter until she “turns.” Then he has to shoot her. It’s a fun piece.

This one-note family drama masquerading as a horror movie is mostly Abigail Breslin watching her body gradually decay through creepy clouded contacts, and a bearded, introspective Arnold gazing at sunsets through furrowed brows. Stretching his range, I guess. Paced, I suppose appropriately, at a shuffle.
