“Yummy” – Movie Review

When it comes to undead, flesh-eating zombies, “yummy” probably isn’t a word that comes to mind, unless you have a very dark sense of humor. This is pretty common among horror fans, and Shudder’s newest zombie original, aptly titled Yummy captures just that. It’s not the over the top humor that last week’s Scare Package relied on.
