Two rotting thumbs up for this movie...
20 November 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I didn't know about this movie at all before I stumbled upon it by sheer luck. I glanced at the poster and then read something about it being similar to "Shaun of the Dead", and of course, being the zombie aficionado that I am, I just had to give this movie a go.

The story is quite nice, with Mike (played by Michael McKiddy) and Brent (Ross Kidder), two zombies on a roadtrip across the country to get Mike back with his beloved former girlfriend. They befriend both living and undead along the way; Cliff (played by Harry Burkey) and Cheese (played by Markus Taylor). The group gets into all kinds of situations and the movie is filled with cool one-liners and lots of laughs.

"DeadHeads" surprised me as it was quite good, had a catchy and good story, and also had really nice make-up and effects. The zombies in the movie were looking great, and the make-up on Cheese, in particular, was fabulous. Also the undead-look given to Mike and Brent was quite good.

The movie have some really unique and outrageous characters, and it is characters that you will remember for a long time, especially McDinkle (played by Benjamin Webster). He was off the charts.

Now, "DeadHeads" is a comedy first and foremost, and the zombies are just a backdrop, a supplement to the real story. But still, if you liked "Shaun of the Dead", then bets are that you will enjoy this movie as well. It is not entirely up to the level of "Shaun of the Dead", but it does make a good effort, and it is entertaining.

I have recently suffered through two really bad zombie movies, so "DeadHeads" were a nice upbeat experience, and it did approach the zombie genre in a great way. The tribute to "The Evil Dead" was quite tasteful.

I saw only a single flaw in the movie, and that was Mike and Brent's steamy breath in the night scenes. Zombies weren't supposed to be breathing, so that was a blooper. Sure it is a minor flaw, and truth be told, it was the only thing that was bad about the movie.

Thumbs up for "DeadHeads", well worth a watch if you like comedies or want a light-hearted approach to the zombie genre.
