Alice In Zombieland

Alice in Zombieland: A Penny Dreadful Review
 
          It was inevitable. With the popularity of zombies and the allure of Alice in Wonderland, someone was bound to combine these things. That someone is Nickolas Cook. The mashup he has created is Alice in Zombieland, and I must say it has turned out all right.
          Alice is much as you will remember her, but Wonderland is quite altered. There is no Mock Turtle, only a Corpse Turtle. The White Rabbit is transformed into a Black Rat. The Red Queen commands an undead horde. Mr. Cook has kept some of the original words and tone, yet made the story his own. I have seen better mashups, but I have seen many worse.
          I give Alice in Zombieland three and a half gears out of five. If you enjoy twisted classics, you will not want to miss this one.
