"Bloody zombie comedy with drastic effects, but also with lots of puns, dry humor and almost absurd slapstick."

“Rabid and above all rabidly funny British zombie comedy by the German Matthias Hoene, in which the bloody splatter of Peter Jackson combines with the cynical London cockney humor to create fast-paced fun. The comic pulp ripper also comes up with old British stars, including Alan Ford ("Snatch") and Bond girl Honor Blackman. All-round splatter fun with enough good guys, ideas and quotes to keep everyone from splatterkids to cineastes happy. "
