A near flawless zombie comedy
7 December 2011 | by ADaemonIsBornSee all my reviews

I was initially put off by the relatively low score this movie has on here, but I quickly discovered the fallacy of the current 5.0/10 rating.

"Deadheads" is smart, touching and revolting in the right places, without ever losing sight of what it is: a really good zombie comedy.

While the romantic interest that propels the story would be a risky device in the hands of lesser directors, the Pierce brothers add just the right amount of deflating humor to the mix to ensure "Deadheads" doesn't head off into romcom territory.

The two leads, Michael McKiddy and Ross Kidder (brother of Margot!), make a great "smart zombie" team, but the film truly distinguishes itself through the other cast members: Markus Taylor as "stupid zombie" Cheese, Harry Burkey as old man Cliff and Benjamin Webster and Greg Dow as the zombies' pursuers all give strong performances.

Some hardcore "gorehound" horror fans will likely be of the opinion that there's not enough blood and guts flying around, but if that's your kind of thing, just go get a job in a slaughterhouse and leave the rest of us in peace.

With "Deadheads", the brothers Pierce (their dad worked on "Evil Dead", btw) have delivered a solid horror film which has everything in it to become a modern cult classic.

I can't wait to see what they'll do next...
