Comedy Horror??
11 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film must have slipped by me when it first came out as I only had the misfortune of seeing it recently.

I am a fan of the zombie genre and I like horror comedies when done well but this one was neither.

As a low budget film it wasn't as bad as some, the acting and script was bearable and the camera work wasn't too bad. The main problem is that the film just doesn't work on any level, it's not really a horror, it's definitely not funny and it's not really a zombie flick. The only reason I managed to let this play out until the end was because I was doing something else at the time and had it on in the background.

The idea was kind of unique although similar ideas have been explored before, sadly though it just doesn't hold up this stinker.

Maybe if you are extremely bored and have the sense of humour this film requires you may enjoy it, if however you are thinking of turning it off after the first 10 minutes then you should as it doesn't get any better....
