Elmer Winslow is a soldier on the run from the Union Army, and Luke Budd is a cowboy with a broken heart. When the two misfits rob the corrupt sheriff of an old west town, they have no idea that a plague of zombies is sweeping the country, or that Geronimo's sexy niece may be their only hope of survival.

Storyline

Army deserter Elmer Winslow and local cowboy Luke Budd are on the run after robbing the evil Sheriff Claypool, stealing his money and fleeing the town, they find themselves with an angry posse on their trail. Joining Elmer and Luke is an Apache warrior, who's out to wreak vengeance on behalf of her decimated people; her plan is to attack the U.S. Army wherever she can find it, and she takes Elmer up on his offer to go with her to the nearest Army outpost he knows. Their plans become complicated when they discover that, as a result of the great Apache Geronimo's curse on the white man, all the people of the surrounding areas have turned into zombies.

Tombstones not required for this lot.
8 October 2010 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Setting it's stall out from the very first moments (thanks to a mildly amusing written intro explaining how Geronimo actually unleashed the "White Man's Curse"), Undead Or Alive is a zombie comedy Western that may not appeal to others due to two main hurdles. 1)It stars Chris Kattan (who I used to really dislike but have come to actually enjoy since seeing his turns in A Night At The Roxbury and Undercover Brother). 2)It actually uses the zombies as figures of fun and makes jokes at their expense as opposed to having comedy set around a genuine atmosphere of impending zombie doom.

The basic plot sees Luke (Kattan) and Elmer (James Denton) teaming up to escape from jail and flee a small town after a run in with the dastardly sheriff (Matt Besser). The sheriff is determined to catch the duo, despite being bitten by his deputy who was bitten by the one other prisoner in the jail (a, you guessed it, zombie), and so it's not long before a posse of zombiefied cowboys are hunting down our leading men. Fortunately, they happen to meet Sue (Navi Rawat) and she may just be what they need for a chance of survival, triumph and/or even love.

For serious horror fans there may not be quite enough blood and guts on display here (although it has some decent moments) and for comedy fans this may just not be funny enough but I have to admit that I found myself enjoying the whole affair from beginning to end. No major surprises, no BIG laughs and nothing that will make the movie rocket to the top of any all-time favourite list but it's a fun diversion for those it appeals to.

Writer-director Glasgow Phillips (working from the story by himself and Scott Pourroy) doesn't ever let things slow up enough to become boring and what he gives us is a perfectly acceptable modern horror comedy that passes the time for anyone who can't get hold of the likes of Shaun Of The Dead, Black Sheep or Zombieland.
