Unfortunately, Boy Meets Girl not only gives us a hero who is prettier than most of the girls, but it also gets wrapped up in a lame contrivance of events that results in his accidental suicide. And yes, that plays out as silly as it sounds. Since we know it's a zombie movie, there's zero surprise when he's brought back by his guilt-ridden mother.
At this point we endure some lover's quarrels and a high school dance before anything zombie-ish happens. Not a good sign when you start checking the clock on an 80-minute movie.
So throw this sucker into the bin? No! In fact, you must check it out. Partly because the character interaction is above average, and somehow the cast being Irish makes things funnier than they would be otherwise. Then come some nice gore gags. They don't always make sense, but they do get the job done and will bring a smile to the most jaded genre fan's face. I won't ruin any of them, but one scene will have any lady who's even gotten "played" cheering at the screen.
The true joy comes toward the middle of the last block, though. What had been an above average teen zombie-horror-comedy elevates itself like old school Jordan dunking from the free throw line with one outstanding scene. A group of surviving peeps is about to get mowed down by their undead classmates, when a piece of farm equipment is brought to bear in ways that would make Peter Jackson proud. It's one of the best single moments of gore-filled, blood drenched carnage I've ever seen.
You could drop this particular scene into an Olsen Twins flick and it would make it a must see movie for genre fans. Lucky for us it comes as the plasma red cherry on top of a tasty, though mostly disposable, entry in the canon of the undead.
