Great Zombie Comedy 10/10
Full of stupidity! 1/10
Shawn of the Dead for kids. 7/10
some good fun 7/10
Left a little disappointed by this after seeing plenty of positivity.
As a 15 Rating it may appeal more to 11-14 year olds if they're allowed to watch it at home.
For adults, I don't think there is enough, some ok moments, but the comedic element was a let down and there has been a worse comedy zombie than this recently, but not one to live long in memory.
MGN Rating 5.5/10
