Verdict: Fun Zombie Comedy

Story: Ahockalypse starts when our ice hockey team Jonsey (Rennicke), BJ (Charlson) and Wave (Galick) along with Mrs Johnson (Arrowsmith) and Jenny (Williams) are celebrating winning the championship only for the city to become overrun with zombies.

As the navigate the dark streets they look to survive in the humor filled battle with the undead and the locals taking advantage of the situation.

Thoughts on Ahockalypse

Characters – Jonsey is the captain of the team, the star player the scorer of the winning goal, he must keep everyone together through the outbreak with his friends and team mates listening to his ideas. BJ and Wave are the fellow teammates the two get extra laughs through the film with their reaction to different events in the film. Mrs Johnson plays into the idea of an older woman grabbing the attention of the players with her looks even though she is isn’t that much older than the guys.

PerformancesJesse Rennicke in the leading role is good, he gives the rest of the cast the comedy moments while being the only straight-faced performer in the film. while we get most of the laughs from Squall Charlson and Alex Galick who give us the best reactions to everything. Gabrielle Arrowsmith is strong too even if she does look way too young to be part of the cougar jokes.

StoryHow man different ways can you bring us a zombie apocalypse? That is what this movie askes us, by giving us an ice hockey team taking on zombies and of course this will have a comical tone. Now for a large part of the film we are facing the survive against zombie idea, one location seems safe, it isn’t which is fine, Shaun of the Dead used this to its advantage, this movie does too. The story does keep a clever on running joke about a random girl that is with the group and for some reason we have three random martial artists one in a mascot suit roaming the city too. For a zombie comedy this story is all we need to see and you will remember this being the only ice hockey players versus zombies movie.

Comedy/Horror The comedy in the film does have moments that reference other movies, wildly over the top reactions to things happening which is great fun, the horror side of the film does slip because of this with the comedy stopping many scenes being scary.

SettingsThe film takes place in the city which the locals would know where to go with a zombie outbreak, it shows us how people could react to an outbreak well to start with.

Special EffectsThe effects are low budget which you must understand for certain parts, but nobody every complained about practical blood baths.

Scene of the Movie –
The on running joke with the random girl with the group, it gets a laugh every time it starts slowing down.

That Moment That Annoyed Me It never has any horror related moments.

Final ThoughtsThis is a fun and enjoyable zombie comedy that understands how to get a laugh from the audience and never taking things too seriously.

Overall: The best ice hockey team versus zombies movie.
