Eliott Gould is the "Undead"
13 December 2013 | by rogermurphy193See all my reviews

This film is so off the wall it has to be a comedy classic. Elliot Gould was fantastic as the Zombie, (remember him in such classics as Capricorn One?). It does remind me of a B-Movie, daft but highly enjoyable.

Can't help wondering if it influenced "Anchorman" (Ted Burgundy. But perhaps not.

The rest of the cast look familiar and perhaps have appeared in other American films/TV productions, but Eliott Gould appears to be the only Famous face, (albeit in heavy white foundation to compliment his "undead" Zombie persona). If you get the opportunity to see this film give it a go, the surreal humour will not disappoint.

Can't help thinking David Cameron would make a good Zombie, hang on I thought he was already!!!)
