If there’s anything more to say about zombie flicks, Alexandre O’ Philippe’s entertaining free-for-all provides the “double tap”, with contributions from the major players (Romero, Pegg, Savini) alongside scholars and survival experts. Shuffling agreeably to 77 minutes, it’s more like a great DVD extra than a feature in its own right, compiling zombie weddings, pop songs and porno clips, while trotting out the old slow/fast debate.

In some ways the most rabid fans have started to resemble zombies themselves, flocking, without question (but with costume) to endless conventions while Romero and co look on bemused.
