Written (in part) and directed by Josh Monkarsh, the cast includes such luminaries as Taylor Blackwell, Mike Castle, Oliver Cooper, Pam Grier, and Chris Parnell. According to our friends at IMDB.com, here's the plot summary:
"In the late '90s, James Bishop is dealing with a complicated breakup with the help of his best friend, while trying to finish his book before the impending zombie apocalypse."
It's also worth pointing out that -- per the advertising materials I've been provided -- As We Know It has become a bit of a sensation on the film festival circuit, one of Tinseltown's best means to gauge the potential success of a film's resonance with viewers. Let's hope that our cultural betters can tell a good Apocalypse from a bad one as this one's trailer does look quite funny.

When a zombie outbreak occurs, a group of friends must try to reconcile their relationships and enjoy what little time they have left… before the end of the world.
With the streets of Los Angeles swarming with the undead, James, Bruce, and Emily come together to barricade themselves in the house while reconciling their personal struggles. And occasionally, letting in the only food delivery service still operating, Abracadabra.
Bringing together elements of romance, friendship, and the absurdity of survival, AS WE KNOW IT is a rollercoaster of laughs and unexpected twists. With the fate of humanity hanging in the balance, our trio must confront their own demons, rekindle lost love, and, of course, avoid being turned into the living dead. Packed with witty dialogue, nostalgic nods to the '90s, and a unique blend of comedy and horror, AS WE KNOW IT is a riotous ride that proves even in the face of an apocalypse, there's always room for love and laughter.
AS WE KNOW IT is co-written and directed by Josh Monkarsh. Co-written by Brandon DePaolo and Christopher Francis. Produced by Monkarsh and Daniel Cummings, and Co-produced by K. Asher Levin and Joshua Fruehling. Cinematography by Stephen St. Peter. Composed by Michl Britsch. A Traffic City Productions film.
