Description from imdb:
A documentary of the daily lives of a small community of the living deceased who make their home in Los Angeles.

Zombie speed: doesn't come into play

Zombification: due to a virus that is dormant until death for certain people

Zombie mode: this is the movie that introduced me to 3 types of zombies
- feral
- low-functioning
- high-functioning

My thoughts:
In-a-word(s): creepy

Zombies aka Revenants

This documentary follows the lives of 4 zombies living in L.A. The zombies living among us are presented as a small community who experience prejudices and injustices like those found in racism and classism.

For the sake of the story the filmmakers manage to get invited to an annual festival gathering called Live Dead which is slated for zombies only.

As the film progresses, the filmmakers find out more than they need to know about this sub-culture.

There's no brain feasting or rabid zombies in this flick. Or at least none that were revealed on the camera... Although it did scare me. It was Blair Witch Project kind of scary.

Ewww moment: Lisa character goes to a healer due to her maggot problem.
