Storyline

This British movie is about a group of inept criminals who decide to rob a bank so they can save their grandfather's retirement home from being demolished by developers. Meanwhile on another building site some workers dig up an old graveyard and they get bitten by the "undead" which sets off a chain reaction. Then the bank robbers are cornered by the police while in the process of the robbery, but when they exit they find that they are all dead as a result of the horde of zombies. They have to get to the retirement home before the zombies do! Written by Michael Hallows Eve

Goofs

When Ray (Alan Ford) is telling his story of fighting the Nazi's, he bashes in, starts shooting. But he's armed with a Lee-Enfield, the standard British infantry rifle of WW2. One has to run the bolt to fire, something he never does, just firing continuously.

However since it is his own retelling he is probably not a stickler to facts and may be embellishing quite a bit to make himself sound more heroic. See more »

Quotes

Andy: Got a steel plate in his head; injury from the Iraq war. The had to remove part of his brain.
Terry: Yeah, the part of your brain that keeps you from being fucking psychopath!

Great British Comedy/Horror! A new cult classic?
21 October 2012 | by Michael-Hallows-EveSee all my reviews

This film was both funny and bloody! If Guy Ritchie directed a zombie film this would be the result. A funny LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS type of Comedy/Horror. The plot is mostly original and the action is bloody and gory in scenes which makes this film fun to watch. It's not quite SHAUN OF THE DEAD but it's very close. There are a few familiar faces for those who have seen a lot of the great British Guy Ritchie type films. There are some great kill scenes too. I found myself watching the movie and seeing a few comparisons to the for-mentioned comedy/horror film. This will be, in my opinion, another cult classic in years to come. I give it an 8.5 out of 10.
