There’s a fairly orig­i­nal idea at the heart of this zom­bie sort- of­com­edy. It’s 458 days into the apoca­lypse and a band of mis­matched sur­vivors are trudg­ing through the English coun­try­side. It’s all go­ing about as well as you’d ex­pect un­til they stum­ble upon an aban­doned shel­ter and en­counter – wait for it – Zom­bie Je­sus.

An un­dead mes­siah is a fun con­cept. Un­for­tu­nately, it’s not par­tic­u­larly de­vel­oped, or even give much screen time. In­stead, the movie is mostly con­tent to shuf­fle de­crepitly through a se­ries of zom­bie clichés. The pro­duc­tion val­ues are solid, but the jokes mostly amount to peo­ple shout­ing “fuck” while “funny” mu­sic plays. A bit of a missed op­por­tu­nity.

A solid half- hour Mak­ing Of and a trailer. Will Salmon
