ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction
Things are getting weird in the picturesque island hamlet of Port Gamble, Washington - and not just because the residents have started morphing into zombies.
While the self-serving mayor campaigns for re-election and the local reverend tends to his god-fearing flock, uneasy social currents begin to ripple. Iranian-American Frida is home after dropping out of Harvard and closeted local-boy-made-good, Tom, catches the ferry over with his boyfriend Lance to come out to his mother.
Hamedani's 'zomedy' has post-9/11 and socially conservative politics firmly in its sights, but isn't squeamish when it comes to graphically dispatching the town's residents when they're infected by a zombie virus attributed to Arab terrorists. The gross-out quotient won't disappoint in this gore-riddled satire that isn't afraid to also indulge in a little matricide and patricide to get its point across.
