4.0 out of 5 stars A whole lot of fun
Caught this film at FrightFest and was really looking forward to UK DVD release. It's a whole lot of fun and one I recommend to anyone who wants to see film makers step away from the cliched zombie film and try to do something different. Only reason for not giving it 5 stars is the lack of extras on the DVD. Apart from that, it's a great film that delivers gore, humour...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad
It's a different take on the ZomCom genre. Two zombie's who retain their human side and go on a quest to find one of their girlfriends.
Two offices that chase them along the way, one who looks like he's escaped from the "Blue Oyster Club".
It's silly in places, funny in others and weird in others.
On the whole watchable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, charming zombie, if you will, 28 Feb 2012
This review is from: Dead Heads [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Let me start by saying, I simply loved Deadheads. Read further if you will, but you've got the general jist now.

The story opens with Mike, waking up on his own, completely oblivious to the fact that he's died, and is now a zombie.

Enter Brent - guide, new best friend and to be honest, the best looking zombie I ever saw. Brent helps Mike come to terms with being a zombie, and when he learns that Mike was on the verge of propsing to his girlfriend (before he died, that is), takes him on a mission to find his lost love (hence romzomcom).

The pair make a great on-screen duo - and we can't forget Cheese, their intellectually-challenged zombie friend - so trio - and they make for a lot of laughs and an incredibly endearing film. VERY highly recommended. Deadheads 2 anyone? Directors, are you listening?

5.0 out of 5 stars ZOMBIE WANTS HIS GIRLFRIEND BACK, 28 Aug 2013
This review is from: Dead Heads [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
If the idea of a zombie not happy about being a zombie and going on a mission to get his intended back doesn't sound appealing to you,go elsewhere.
This is very funny in a ridiculous way. It is mainly about this guy who is killed in a way he struggles to remember. He comes across antother guy who appears to be fine with being a zombie and decides to help his (unimpressed to zombie life)new mate.
It is funny to see someone clearly miffed about being a zombie and refusing to join in with the flesh eating norm. Trying to look like a healthy human,he goes out to find his girlfriend,after a ring in his pocket jogs his memory. He starts remembering moments before his death and the story grows.
This is most unusual and I appreciated the new slant on zombie films,it's got some good gore with it,plenty of laughs and some heart.
But can his girl love a zombie? Now there's a question.

3.0 out of 5 stars Zombie buddy film, 30 Mar 2012

This review is from: Dead Heads [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is the story of Brent and Mike, two high funcioning zombies. They meet after death and set out on a journy to find a lost love.
Highly entertaining movie, yes very corny aswell, the on screen chemistry between the two leads is great and charasmatic enough to hold your attention.
If your a little tired of the same old zombie formular give this one a go, its a refreshing new twist on the zombie genre, don't take it too serious and you will enjoy this zombie buddy film

4.0 out of 5 stars Its a Zom Com! (yaay I invented a new genre! Sort of.), 23 Feb 2012

This review is from: Dead Heads [DVD] (DVD)
Yes folks this is a Zombie, Comedy, Road Movie with a love interest bags of laughs (you will split your sides - ho ho) and it is great fun. I will give you the basic synopsis. Two Zombies realise that they cannot only still speak but seem to have the ability of free thought, fear and sarcasm too. Mike Kellerman (Michael McKiddy) starts to remember when he was alive and things become clearer when he finds an engagement ring! Yes he was and realises he still is in love - bless. Only problem is he doesn't look his best, he has been dead for three years and apart from the obvious odour issues he has some noticeable bullet holes and his arm keeps falling off.

But help comes in the unlikely looking Brent Guthrie (Ross Kidder), a fellow sentient Zombie, who suggests that they ought to deliver the ring anyway just to put the record straight. This they decide to do and start their road trip with a great old guy Cliff and an adopted Zombie called `Cheese' who seems to respond to doggy commands rather than the usual human banter. Like all good road trips they only have one rule and this is? No eating humans - typical.

The sub plot comes in an evil drugs company who want them dead or experimented on or both, either way they really need to put some space between each other but it aint gonna be easy as they is some bad bottomed mother fornicator types.

This is a film I thought was going to be trashy and the only saving grace being able to fritter away an hour and a half, and I was way off the mark. It is a genre bender in the talking, thinking Zombie angle, but it really works. They are very aware of their situation and take it with acceptance, humour pathos and lots of cod psychology. There is also a load of real humour, the laugh out loud stuff and not the gross arm eating stuff either. I laughed on more than one occasion and better still I was rooting for these guys. Because no matter how bad thing got they kept on trying and there was real warmth coming from the performances.

I think that is why it worked so well, we do have chemistry between all the main players, that and the evil sub plot and the lost love all just combined to make a very enjoyable film indeed. There is a lot of the gore you would expect but it is far from gratuitous. Not just for Zombie fans, not just for comedy fans but for one hundred per cent Zom - Com fans - you know it makes sense.

Really good film. lots of laughs. It's strange, but after a while you stop noticing how really revolting they look and start to want them to win.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not funny., 3 April 2014
This review is from: Dead Heads [DVD] (DVD)
This is touted as a comedy, but I just didn’t find it funny.

And I do like humour – everything from Fawlty Towers to The Inbetweeners.

I could see moments that were supposed to be funny, but the writers fell short of the mark. It’s like they had an idea of what could be funny, laughed about it to themselves, but just didn’t have the wherewithal to translate what they were laughing it into a screen moment for viewers to share through the dialogue or set pieces.

Unfortunately, there’s not enough action to keep the film interesting while you wait for the next “funny” line, which means you just sit and watch with a dulled sense – you don’t care what’s going to happen and to whom it may happen.

If you’re really, really bored, it might be worth a watch. Or if you’re really, really easily pleased. Otherwise, don’t bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly bonkers and brilliant!!, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Heads [DVD] (DVD)
This was my highlight of the year so far, an intelligent and incredibly fun horror comedy from the lands of the liberty.

Unlike most zombie films that exist purely for the horror of it and the mindless savagery of the undead, some of these zombies seem to be able to exist with full faculties and this makes for an incredibly enjoyable romantic zombie romp as the recently revived Michael seeks to restart his love life with the girl he was going to marry before her dad killed him!!

Teaming up with Brent, another recent revivee (new word) who reluctantly agrees to help him win back his old/new flame; they must outwit a secret organisation and her dad to win her back and strike a blow for the recently revived.

This is a mad and brilliant film that is totally worth your time.
