Storyline

Samuel Peters once an ordinary man, dabbles within the laws of voodoo to bring his wife back from the grave, he soon encounters the God of malevolence 'Kalfu', where he makes a pact with him to destroy the underworld and bring chaos to earth; in return he will become 'The Zombie King' and walk the earth for eternity with his departed wife. Seven days before the rise of the Dark Moon, Samuel Peters (The Zombie King) calls upon Kalfu to raise seven of the recently departed, where their souls must be held on earth for seven days. With the ever growing horde of zombies, they begin to completely wipe out a countryside town. Once the Government get wind of what is going on, they set a perimeter around the town area and employ a shoot on sight policy. Trapped within the town, the locals and unlikely bunch of misfits fight for their lives, and the remaining humans soon realise that they have to unite in order to survive. Seeking sanctuary in a local church, they discover a bizarre disturbed ... Written by Rebecca-Clare Evans

Great addition to the zombie comedy genre
30 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure what I would make of this film before i saw it and I must say i was pleasantly surprised. Now don't get me wrong, it is not going to be winning an Oscar but for a popcorn movie and some light entertainment it really is fun! I would have maybe liked to see a tad more horror, but in terms of entertainment value i was pleased. There was some fantastic acting and the cast were great, some weaker characters but the central ones of the milkman, postie and traffic warden were a hoot and some great acting from some of the supporting characters too. As a comedy this is definitely a winner and as a horror it was good enough to be enjoyable, great for a night in when you want to chill after along hard day. Well done.
