Not much of a tie-in to my zombie theme, though there's a brief allusion to Night of the Living Dead in the movie. The good news is that it was laugh out loud funny throughout. I suppose the complaint would be that it's really all and only about Homer. The rest of the family doesn't do much, and the rest of the town, besides Flanders, does almost nothing. And while Homer's lack of self-control but basic goodness is probably the most fertile element in the series, a more inventive, varied interaction between characters would've been more fun.
