Yummy (2020) Fantasia 2020
The plot of the film has an ex-medical school student, he washed out because he hates blood, taking his girlfriend and her mother to a cut rate hospital for cosmetic surgery in the Balkans. As the women get ready for surgery our hero wanders the halls. WHen he sees a young woman strapped to a bed seemingly in medical trouble- he tries to help- and thus the trouble begins because is was no longer alive but a member of the living dead...
Hitting the sweet spot of comedy and horror YUMMY is a great deal of fun. Managing to breathe a little bit of life in the zombie genre it manages to keep things moving along by giving us some laughs, some good characters and enough blood a visera to make even the most hardened gore hound to choke on their popcorn at some point.
It may not be high art but I had a blast.
