A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting bruiser in search or the last Twinkie and a pair of sisters striving to get to an amusement park join forces in a trek across a zombie-filled America.
Contrary to many contemporary zombie films (such as Dawn of the Dead (2004) and Shaun of the Dead (2004)), Zombieland is quite explicit about what caused the zombie infestation. Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) mentions that the first patient ate an infected hamburger, so the source is a pathogen, like a virus. People only become zombies after contact with other zombies, so it is not airborne. In a deleted scene, Columbus mentions that to prevent infection, one should avoid contact with bodily fluids of infected people, suggesting that the infection can be transmitted through contact with blood, saliva and vomit.
Oh, America. I wish I could tell you that this was still America, but I've come to realize that you can't have a country without people. And there are no people here. No, my friends. This is now the United States of Zombieland.
In the grocery store when Wichita checks the double barrel shotgun to see if it's loaded, firing pin indentations are visible in the primers of the shells indicating the shells have already been fired.
The opening titles are knocked aside in slow motion by various elements in the scenes like the characters, gunfire, automobiles.
The DVD and Blu-ray releases feature 7 deleted scenes:
English, Spanish, French
