The Reviews for Wasting Away (2007) 1080p

Half successful zombie comedyReviewed byCoventryVote: 5/10

I often wonder how far horror-crazed directors can and will go exploiting the concept of zombie comedies even further. The living dead haven't appeared in a genuinely scary movie since many years. The days of George A. Romero's original zombie trilogy are long over and nail-biting suspense has gradually turned into absurd comedy and grotesque splatter. The majority of zombie comedies are pretty lame, with some notably exceptions like "Shaun of the Dead" and "Fido", and practically none of them comes up with original ideas or creative new formulas. "Wasting Away", by debuting writer/director Matthew Kohnen, is one of the very first Indie flick that attempts something drastically inventive and brand new. The movie shows life from the perspectives of the zombies themselves. They assume they look and behave completely normal, but in fact they are disorientated and steadily rotting cadavers. This concept indeed sounds silly and even more implausible as regular zombie action, but it's undeniably innovative and particularly Kohnen's illustration of the world through zombie eyes is extremely ingenious. The initial black & white cinematography only turns into color when the four lead characters become infected with the zombie virus. From their viewpoints the normal and still uninfected people are hectic and incomprehensibly muttering beings. Four twenty-something friends with absolutely nothing better to do than hang around in a fast food restaurant become infected when they mix ice cream with a gooey green fluid from a barrel that lay at the entrance. The fluid obviously is a military experiment gone wrong and the foursome undergoes a vivid metamorphosis. As more and more people are getting infected, the zombies take peace with their new lifestyle and want to defend their rights. In spite of the original concept and a handful of effectively hilarious jokes and gimmicks, "Wasting Away" regretfully remains a low-budgeted and forgettable effort. The film is too long and for every neat sequence or clever piece of dialog there sadly is tedious and clichéd zombie movie footage. The lead players are mundane and annoyingly stereotypical horror caricatures, including the joker and the nerd kid, and the rest of characters aren't much better with the drunken bowlers and heavily mustached army colonel. Around the hour the whole thing just sort of gets retarded, with a man vs. zombie combat, talking heads and zombie bowling tournaments. There's quite a lot of carnage and bloodshed going on, but the emphasis merely lies on the comedy factor. Once again, the basic idea is nifty but clearly that wasn't enough. Nevertheless I'll be interested in seeing the future work of director Kohnen.

Refreshing, fun and inspiring!Reviewed byemquzuVote: 8/10

I've just seen this film on DVD here in the UK and am really glad I did. You never expect much with Zombie films nowadays as there are so many poor ones out there; having said that I still have full respect for ANYONE who goes out and makes a film whatever the end product. This one is different though, it has a really good concept throughout and is filmed from both the human and zombie perspective which I loved and also found extremely funny. The jokes are quick and sharp and really tuned in with my sense of humour; the espionage one especially! The storyline is simple but keeps pace throughout and never really drags at all. The use of B&W and colour works perfectly to distinguish between 'zombievision' and human eyes and the general quality of the print is good.

This film also achieves something which is actually very hard to do. It has a real 'Group of college friends making a film' kind of feel but at the same time pulls off good acting, direction and an overall impressive production; this always inspires me to look more into film production myself.

Also, and I'm going to get a little deep here, there is a really good concept of what I would call 'majority perspective rules' By this I mean that 'normal' in this world is simply what the MAJORITY of people believe to be normal. By viewing things from a zombie perspective it shows us that to them (zombies) at least, everything IS normal and it's everyone else who is strange. This really makes you think about all the different people in this world and perhaps if we could see things from each others angle then our entire paradigm would change.

Give this one a try if you are looking for something new and refreshing in the genre.

A fresh zombie movie! Finally!Reviewed bylordsteve_666Vote: 9/10

Now, this is one of the very few films I have seen that is only lacking one thing: a bigger budget. Starting from a brilliant idea the Kohnens have developed a smartly silly script and translated this into a nicely paced movie. There are a few lengths but the script manages to cover them nicely while keeping the overall tone of the movie intact. I only wished the filmmakers had had a little more budget for some of the special effects (or potential effects), I'm sure we would have gotten something on the level of Jackson's 'Dead Alive', or at least 'Bad Taste' :) ... btw ... the references to this particular one are lovely ... 'We are zombies! Zombies don't run!' This was by far the best movie that I've seen at this year's 'Another Hole In The Head' festival, and I hope the Kohnens get the chance of another shot at this topic with a decent budget.
