The Undead Are Brown Bread.
When some down-on-their-luck old timers are at risk of losing their home to developers, a group of young, inept criminals decide to take matters into their own hands. The only thing standing in their way? A zombie outbreak in London! Now, it’s up to a bunch of east-enders to fight their way out of the zombie-infested city, lead by an unlikely gang of amateur bank robbers and foul-mouthed, plucky pensioners.
Starring Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman, 2007), Honor Blackman (Goldfinger), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger, 2013), Richard Briers (Much Ado About Nothing), and Alan Ford (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), this “funny, likeable [and] gory zombie comedy delivers…it’s a laugh riot” (Time Out)!
Why We Love It
"What an unexpected treat. A film that starts as a bumbling heist movie morphs into a hilarious zombie comedy that gives us the added bonus of fun performances from the underused Alan Ford and the beautiful-at-any-age Honor Blackman. Make-up is good, special effects are not the finest, but they're better than expected for a gallows humour film from an odd horror sub-genre. Very few zombie comedies are actually worth the effort it takes to view them, but this is certainly one of them." -Amazon
"It's equally hilarious as it is bloody, and it never stops. In fact, the first on-screen death happens within the first minute of the film and it only gets better from there." -High Def Digest
"This is a farce first, horror film last, and contains a handful of scenes and moments which are actually quite memorable and clever" -Diabolique Magazine
