Beverly Lane follows a local metal company as they celebrate the retirement of their longtime boss with a "Coney Island" themed party. Bored & angry, the workers find themselves stuck with clowns, a magician, a mime, and one very sick barbershop singer. Then all hell breaks loose...literally! Stuck between zombies and a sideshow, the workers must learn to survive with each other or die trying. Written by
"Dawn of the Dead" having it's way with "The Office"
Just when you thought the "Zom-Com" was dying out (what with all of the Shaun of the Dead knock offs) Along comes "Beverly Lane" to breathe new life (or is it death?) into a tired sub-genre!! I had the distinct pleasure of reviewing this fine film a few months back for NerdRemix.com and it's well made, well written, well acted and funny as all get out! Director Joshua Hull and company have loaded up on the funny and pull out all the stops here, there's a little bit of everything at this doomed retirement party: sleazy clowns, magicians, annoying mimes, cougars, fatties, office brown-nosers, violent bikers, and of course plenty of hungry zombies!! This film really succeeds where many similar films fail--LAUGHS!! I for one was giggling like a moron throughout most of the running time. A particular standout was Jim O'Rear, but the entire cast was solid. I can't really say enough about this flick other than-Watch it!! Watch it 2 or 3 times!! They don't make 'em like this too often! I, for one, can't wait to see Hull's follow up "Idiot Gore"-here's hoping lightning strikes twice!
