the film's ok but could have been funnier. There was only a couple of laugh out loud moments on it,one being when brent one of the zombie guys went for a wee and his knob fell off, But other than that not brilliant.

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.

Didnt know what to expect on this one. Not as heavy as some zombie fliks, very funny in places and some excellent makeup fx for this type of road movie, some may say poor but it works well. Probably ideal for a friday night watch after a night out with mates. Proves some zombies have feelings too. lol.

When a film comes with an endorsement from horror legend Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead, Bubba Ho-Tep, Maniac Cop), you're going to pay attention! Campbell stated "In a world of putrid zombie movies, Dead Heads is a breath of fresh air".

Dead Heads is a 2011 horror comedy that comes with the tagline "A road trip to die for." and stars Michael McKiddy (The Retreat, Weenie Roast Massacre) and Ross Kidder (Sam Hell, Caregiver).

With a slew of film festival awards and after reading the synopsis, it certainly seemed like Dead Heads had something new to offer the genre; and to be honest I found the film to have a certain level of charm. However, I could not help but feel that the film was simply a road trip/ buddy movie which happened to feature two undead guys as its protagonists. Perhaps I am desensitised to gore etc now but the whole thing felt to me like some hybrid of horror and a forgettable mid-afternoon TV movie.
McKiddy very much plays the straight-man of the routine with Kidder almost a caricature of a wacky sidekick and for me, there was little in the way of laughs; and initially, I struggled with the concept of these two zombies still being sentient but this is explained during the movie.
The special effects and production values of the film cannot be faulted in the slightest and certainly seems that The Pierce Brothers have spent wisely with their budget. For me, the best character was the zombie hunter McDinkle, as played by Benjamin Webster. In fact, buying the DVD might just be worth it to see the gag reel and the actors cracking up at some of his improvised lines.

Awarded a 15 certificate by the BBFC for "strong bloody gore and language", Dead Heads is a technically proficient film with decent performances from the cast and effects that certainly don't disappoint. After the anticipation built by the praise from Campbell, the plaudits it had received and the general hype; the whole affair was just a bit vanilla for me: it was nice enough but didn't exactly leave me satisfied or indeed desperate for more.

Like zombies? Tired of watching Mila what's-her-name kicking hordes of them out of her way in heels? Bored of George Romero pretending that he's still relevant? If the answer to any of these questions is `yes' then this could be the film for you.

Deadheads is about a zombie uprising, only two of those groaning shufflers just so happens to be intelligent. Yes, they're dead. Yes, they're decomposing and yes, bits of them are falling off (I'll leave it to your imagination to guess which bits). In fact, they're basically alive, apart from the fact that their fellow walkers don't want to eat them and the remaining humans all want to shoot them in the head. Add to this that one of the two unfortunate living zombies is still pining for his ex girlfriend and you have a road trip across America with two wisecracking zombies.

The two IQ-upped undead also take along a `conventional' zombie (who they call `Cheese' for some reason - I might have missed why) and treat him like a pet. Cheese, in turn repays them by stealing every scene even though he does little else but groan and look slightly confused.

There are plenty of pop culture references added into the mix and, before long, you may even forget you're watching what is, in effect, quite a low budget `student-like' film.

Ultimately, Deadheads is a fun film for all the family (assuming your family is `The Adams Family'). It has great characters with even greater facial hair and may even take the place of the hallowed Shaun of the Dead in the Zomromcom department.

Now, just remember never to ask a zombie what he keeps in his pocket.

It's a bit of fun and an interesting re-work of the genre. While it will not blow you away, it is well worth having in your collection. I enjoyed it - what more can you say than that?
