Zombies, Dick Jokes and Plenty of Alcohol... Whats not to like
1 December 2017 | by barnabyosmithSee all my reviews

Dead Shack is a fun, immature and comically violent Indie film that somehow blends a combination of Stranger things, Superbad and the Evil Dead into something that works.

The characters are well cast and minus one or two do a great job of bringing the comedy elements to life, particularly the father and son who deliver some classic one liners.

There are many memorable moments and As the review summary suggests, if you are a fan of zombies, dick jokes and alcohol, and lets face it, who isn't, Dead Shack is the movie for you.
