Deadheads Versus Black Hats: A Movie Review

Directors/writers: Bret Pierce and Drew T. Pierce.

Deadheads is a zomedy in the vein of Shaun of the Dead, Aaah! Zombies!!, and A Little Bit Zombie. The film here is most remiscent of Shaun of the Dead in which two friends try to deal with the zombie apocalypse to moderate results. However in this film Mike (Michael McKiddy) and Brent (Ross Kidder) are not of the living. Instead, they are zombies released from a military lab'. The next 90 minutes is then a road trip styled film as the characters are pursued by the scientists. Deadheads blends genres along the way including: comedy, action and romance. Pandering to so many genres seems to weaken all of them, but overall this is a fun film for zombie movie fans.

Mike and Brent meet up with Cliff (Harry Burkey) after their escape. Cliff is burying the renowned prostitute Pei-Pei's ashes in Lake Michigan.

DVD Review: Deadheads

Deadheads

Stars: Michael McKiddy, Ross Kidder, Markus Taylor, Thomas Galasso, Natalie Victoria | Written and Directed by Brett Pierce, Drew T. Pierce

**With Deadheads due out on DVD in the UK on Monday I think it’s a perfect time to repost my review of the film from this year’s Frightfest, and at the same time urge everyone to go out and buy what I consider to be one of the best films of 2011**

The brothers Pierce make their feature film debut with Deadheads a “zombedy” about two slackers, Mike (McKiddy) and Brent (Kidder), who awake in the midst of a mysterious zombie apocalypse only to discover that they themselves are zombies! Realising that they’re more than your average zombie, still with the ability to think and talk, the pair head off on a road trip to find Mike’s former flame and the love of his life, played by Natalie Victoria,

Deadheads and Zombie Humour: A Movie Review

Directors/Writers: Brett and Drew Pierce.

Cast: Ross Kidder, Michael McKiddy and Markus Taylor.

The Deadheads is less about the horror of being undead and more about the relationships known back then and made now. When Mike Kellerman (Michael McKiddy) awakens to the unknown—and unaware he's technically a zombie of a new generation—the only help he's going to find is with Brent Guthrie (Ross Kidder), a drifter who's all about living life even though he’s dead too.

Part bro-rom-com and part adventure, this film quickly gets these two characters paired up for a look at what life is like for two outcasts. A part of what defines a horror film is retained, and that's to look deep into mankind's fears of acceptance within society.

Kellerman is an author, an individual who can hardly make ends meet, and he's in still in love with his high school sweetheart.

Deadheads – (Screamfest) Review

Deadheads answers the burning questions like: “What happens when you’re a zombie and you get boarded up in a bar with a bunch of gun-wielding humans waiting to blow away the first zombie that crosses their path?”

The new horror-comedy from “The Pierce Brothers” blasts us with pure retro fun, right from the scratchy, grindhousing beginning credits then into the story of Mike Kellerman (Michael McKiddy), who’s just awakened from a three-year coma to find himself a walking/talking zombie. He soon befriends Brent (Ross Kidder), a bubbly, talkative slacker with a similar issue. The guys are then joined by the mindless zombie Cheese (Markus Taylor) and picked up by Nam vet Cliff (Harry Burkey).

The group sets out on a cross-country mission to find Mike’s lost love, Ellie (Natalie Victoria) and also to find the answer to another burning question: “Why are they the only zombies that can talk?
