Storyline

The 1700's...ish, Oxfordshire, England. In the sleepy town of Upper Trollop, there lived a poet named William Filthe'. He was in love with the beautiful but slightly terrifying Vanity Banks, and although she was engaged to his brother, William was blinded by love. One night however, an illness broke out turning all men into beasts. All thoughts of love strangely vanish when you're running from an unstoppable foe in rather a lot of lace...

Great debut short
18 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found Fizz and Ginger Films through they're latest feature, Two Down, and was blown away, so I started to dig around trying to find what they had done before. This started with Egad Zombies! and I was not disappointed. Yes, it's crude and obviously early work (seven years old in fact), but the same style, wit and intelligence lies behind it as it does in Two Down.

It's a take on a classic genre, zombies, but placed in a world that you would never expect it, the 18th century. With the recent release of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies I thought this would be similar, but it's a whole different world (not just from the fact that it's an entirely different period of time), but also that they've seemingly re-written history and created a part of Britain that doesn't exist. So that means the rules have been changed and I love that. It's bold filmmaking, and shows that the team have great promise.

It's not a perfect film, what is?, but it is well made, well told, well acted and on the whole very well executed. It's fun and brash and a great peek into that period of time. And it has Ian McKellen in bed with a zombie; what more could you want from a movie?! And you can see the hard work that has gone into this, and for me that counts for a lot.

I'm now off to see what other shorts of theirs I can unearth (pardon the zombie pun) as I know they did a few before making their way to features.
