Every Damned Thing About Zombies

As We Know It, a suburban zombie “comedy”, is now on Prime Video

There was a fair amount of noise about As We Know It, a small latter-day Shawn of the Dead  rework, about a zombie outbreak in 90’s Los Angeles triggered by bad soy sauce (no seriously … and even that’s a bit of a retread: let’s not forget Cooties,  a near-classic about a zombie outbreak at a nondescript elementary school because of horribly tainted chicken nuggets).
