Youthful passion merges with adult ambition as twelve year old Emily Hagins attempts to fulfill her childhood dreams of directing a feature-length zombie movie. Every director knows that making a movie is no simple task, and fortunately Emily isn't alone in her efforts. As Emily's mother juggles the roles of agent, crewmember, driver, and fan, the ambitious adolescent filmmaker calls the shots from behind the camera while going out of her way to ensure that the "walking dead" shamble, and not sprint. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[Zombie Girl] has rough edges, raw passion and real spirit."
‑ James Rocchi, L.A. Weekly
"The three directors behind this remarkable documentary plant themselves like flies-on-the-wall and capture a very intimate atmosphere."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"The crew deserve most of the credit turning this seemingly mundane topic in to one of pure fascination..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"While subject Emily Hagins' precocious pluck is admirable and endearing, what lends the docu its dramatic edge is the way in which her mother goes from supportive to meddlesome over the course of the no-budget horror pic's production."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"It's an inspirational story, of course, and also an illustrative tale for would-be filmmakers of any age."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"As a breezy behind-the-scenes peek at how micro-budget movies get made, Zombie Girl could be shown in high school film classes ... and probably should."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Triumphant and joyful."
‑ Josh Bell, Filmcritic.com
"Watching Emily perfect shots, arrange her schoolmate extras (often dripping with fake blood), and emotionally react to the roller coaster ride of filmmaking is where the true heart of this engaging documentary lies."
