Best friends, Smalls (Zane Crosby) and Benny (Josh Lively) decide to throw a bash. In a way to capitalize on the recent breakup between Stephanie (Sarah Bauer) and her cheating boyfriend Andrew (Jonas Dixon), Benny invites her to the party in an attempt to capture her affection. When the party is crashed by Andrew, it is the least of their worries. Not only does Andrew appear to wreck the festivities, but so do a posse of murderous zombies. A sub-plot surrounding the Frumcorp Pharmaceuticals Medical Testing Facility in town exposes that they have been developing a virus which causes this outbreak of zombie mayhem. Will Benny save the day and still bag the girl?

Die and Let Live is Justin Channell’s third directorial effort and shows that hard work can shine through even the smallest budget limitations. The film demonstrates some great writing from the Channell-Crosby-Lively trio and interaction amongst characters Benny and Smalls is both interesting and believable. The duo has an on camera chemistry comparable to that of Seth and Evan of the topical Super Bad. Die and Let Live has a bunch of good monologues which is refreshing for a film of this level and isn’t shy on humor either. The humor is, however, sure to cause a mix of groans and chuckles. Benny and Smalls are written so well and likable enough to get the viewer engrossed in the storyline but some of the gags just fall flat. Much of the script’s problems arise from supporting characters and not the primary cast. Adam (Henrique Couto) the friend of the group who dresses in fluorescent colored Hawaiian clothing is hard to stomach most of the time on screen with his over-emphasis fueled acting style. The sub-plot where he turns into a zombie while shooting a show is unnecessary filler. Another example of on screen annoyances comes from Todd Hamilton (Zack Boyce), the obnoxious loud party goer who once again uses the same over-the-top exaggeration. That said, though, after Todd is nibbled, he becomes more subdued and turns into one of the funniest characters in the film with hilarious lines like: “I just asked her out and she bit me. She could have said no.” Crying, he continues “It was a really nice party. Thank you for inviting me, I gotta go to the hospital.”

Viewers will definitely have to be open minded with this one. It’s enjoyable, outranking much of the low budget zombie cheesefests flooding the marketplace today. Die and Let Live has enough humor and blood-gushing zombie mayhem for fans of such a combo and its swiftly paced 75 minute runtime is a plus for the easily distracted. Just keep the fast forward button near by, just in case. It also contains cameos by Troma’s own Lloyd Kaufman, Trent Haaga and Debbie Rochon.
