The Walking Deceased: DVD Review











The Movie:

A month into the zombie apocalypse, a group of survivors, including four who “for safety reasons” go by the names of their favorite cities – Green Bay, Chicago, Brooklyn, and Harlem – a Sheriff fresh off a nice, relaxing, six-week coma, his small-business-owner 10 year old son, and a voiceover-prone zombie, Romeo, who has convinced the group that he’s not dead, just a little slow, are forced from the safety of their mall-camp in hopes of finding a rumored safe-haven.

There isn’t anything serious about this movie. Not one bit of it. It’s exactly what you would expect in the usual spoof kind of film. It’s extremely silly and makes fun of every possible zombie film or show that you can think of. From The Walking Dead (obviously) and Zombieland to the teen film Warm Bodies, it’s all on the table. Some of it is actually pretty funny and that’s coming from a person that didn’t really like any of those spoof kind of films but there are other jokes that just fall flat and have no chance of recovering. I love the zombie genre so much that I want to completely hate this movie for making fun of it but I have to say that (and I know people will be surprised) I’m kind of 50/50 about it. The one thing that did make me laugh every time was the way that Sheriff Lincoln (yup, that’s his name) kept calling out “Caaaaarrrrllll!” to his son is named Chris. The make up effects are pretty bad and so is a lot of the acting but if you go into it already knowing what you’re going to get you can at least enjoy it a bit more than you normally would. Now I wouldn’t suggest buying the film unless you’re a fan of the spoof genre but if you’re in a silly mood then at least check it out. 5/10
