One of the films high on my “must-see” Frightfest list last year, unfortunately work got in the way and I missed it. However I didn’t miss the furore surrounding its screenings, which – if memory serves, sold out on more than one occasion? Our man Jack Kirby did see it though and unfortunately he wasn’t too impressed, but I think he may have been suffering from zombie-movie fatigue having sat through opening night snoozefest The Dead 2.
Yet another example of the British zombie comedy, Stalled takes a more puerile route in pursuit of its laughs, but then when you set your film in a toilet where else is there for you to go?

A janitor gets trapped in a women's restroom and encounters an all-out attack by a horde of zombies.

It’s all fun and games at first, as he manages to spy on two scantily clad office workers who decide to have some experimental fun. That is until one rips out the other’s throat. »
