WHEN THE ZOMBIES COME is a documentary that’s making its debut at Sundance, and also Youtube, apparently. It follows a handful of hardware store employees who are also hardcore fans of The Walking Dead. I’m a big fan too, so I can understand the love for TWD, but these people put the fan in fanatic. The film centers around their alarmingly detailed plans for surviving a zombie apocalypse. It’s obvious they put a lot of thought into it, even though I think they’ll need to work on the details a little bit — good luck surviving with “no bitches,” as they put it.
They’ve done a good job of laying out their plan; the old folk home, which will inevitably be overrun, will be used for target practice. The Quick Trip and Kroger’s will supply their taquito and frozen food reserves, and they’ve even thought of how they’ll deal with injuries, saying “if a zombie pipe goes wrong and one of us starts bleeding,” they’ll make a trip to the local CVS. You owe it to yourself to watch it. You can do so after the break.
