A feast for the brain, this gory and genuinely hilarious
take on zombie culture simultaneously skewers, pays tribute to, and elevates
the horror genre.
Seventeen-year-old Nero is stuck in the wilderness with a
bunch of other juvenile delinquents on an “Inward Trek.” As if that weren’t bad
enough, his counselors have turned into flesh-eating maniacs overnight and are
now chowing down on his fellow miscreants. As in any classic monster flick
worth its salted popcorn, plentiful carnage sends survivors rabbiting into the
woods while the mindless horde of “infects” shambles, moans, and drools behind.
Of course, these kids have seen zombie movies. They generate “Zombie Rules”
almost as quickly as cheeky remarks, but attitude alone can’t keep the biters
Serving up a cast of irreverent, slightly twisted characters, an
unexpected villain, and an ending you won’t see coming, here is a savvy tale that’s
a delight to read—whether you’re a rabid zombie fan or freshly bitten—and an
incisive commentary on the evil that lurks within each of us. Download and start listening now!
