Trevor is 'between jobs'. He spends his days avoiding his overbearing wife by hiding out in his allotment shed and painting figurines for his wargames with his agoraphobic friend, Graham, and dreaming of his heroic alter-ego, the battle mage Casimir the Destroyer. When Mr Parsons, one of the other allotment tenants, petitions to have Trevor removed from his disgrace of a plot (he's not there to grow stuff!) an argument ensues that leaves Trevor with a corpse to hide. Unfortunately, this untimely accident coincides with the zombie apocalypse and Mr Parsons' return is just the beginnings of Trevor's problems. More pressing is whether or not he should try and save his wife and her beautiful best friend, who both he and Graham have a thing for.Written by
The director, Drew Cullingham, met his now wife, Victoria, while shooting Shed of the Dead. She was the production co-ordinator. They have since had a little girl called Indiana who, by the magic of additional green screen shooting in post, actually appears in a pram in the back of a shot during the film! See more »

Shaun of the Dead was a brilliant movie but I can't believe that 15 years later insipid film makers are still churning out poor zombie comedies (or "zomedies") with silly titles, this sub genre is well and truly passed its sell by date. Credit here to them for signing up horror movie legends Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder and Michael Berryman, plus always a delight to see British Scream Queen Emily Booth. But that is the only positive on offer here, otherwise it's a terribly poor attempt at horror comedy, the dialogue belongs in the gutter, the acting is on the whole bad, especially the two main male characters, and it is utterly unoriginal. The end credits couldn't roll soon enough, a really bad movie with many dubious reviews on here.
