I was just watching season 1 of Hell On Wheels, and then put on this film and there's Colm "Betcha U2 are shitting themselves" Meaney, 25 years younger. It's a timeless, beautiful film, John Huston's last, and reminding me a bit of Ingemar Bergman's Fanny and Alexander.
The story takes place in Dublin, 1902. Zombies are roaming the streets. A group of friends gather for a last christmas dinner, trying to ward off the darkness. The zombies finally break through the doors, and help themselves to the dinner guests' brains. Anjelica Huston manages to escape with her husband. They hole up in an empty hotel and she tells him the tragic story of her first love. Then the husband turns into a zombie and eats her brain, as the snow is falling faintly through the universe, upon all the living and the dead.
