The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever is so bad, it could wake the dead… After producing three horror films that went mostly ignored on YouTube, Justin and his filmmaking buddies decide it's time to make something epic. In fact, they're going to make The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever. They may not have money or a script, but they have passion. And, after a rash text message, they also have the beautiful Alicia Howtz as the lead. Hemmed in by a one-month timeline and a cast of uncooperative extras, but aching to fulfill Alicia's dreams, Justin must face the sad, sad truth: he may, in actuality, be producing The Worst Zombie Movie Ever.
Five Boundless Stars
You can tell by the title, that this has to be the best book ever, right? I mean even the Warning in the beginning had me laughing out loud.
You have three teenage boys. Aspiring movie makers, wanting to make the greatest Zombie movie ever. Their banter and the situations that arise throughout this story are just hilarious. I could just imagine This being turned into a movie. It was seriously great and if my child could read (she's only three) so a few years from now. Id have her read this.
I've been a zombie fan forever, so when I came across this naturally it drew me in just by the title. Diving in and being able to witness Justin and his friends make this movie through their blood (fake blood), sweat, beatings and broken bones was awesome.
I wasn't at all bored, wondering when this book would be over. It was entertaining and fun! On deciding a rating I couldn't give it any less than a five, why? Because this a book full of life and possibilities! It's also great for the age group and genre. I look forward to reading more from Strand.
