Written and Directed by The Pierce Brothers
Deadheads is a zombie horror comedy that looks to breath life into a, otherwise, stagnant genre. Two zombies, Mike and Brent, inexplicably gain consciousness to find themselves amidst hoards of fellow zombies following a widespread outbreak. Mike discovers an engagement ring in the pocket of his jacket, and the two embark on a cross country quest to find his lost love, all the while avoiding a team of zombie hunters.
Deadheads appears to be an innovative film in many regards. The plot presents a rather fresh take on zombies that opens new avenues for humorous situations, reminiscent of Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland. This film is, without doubt, one to look forward to in the coming months.
