The Walking Deceased full movie review - Carl! You have to be in the right lowbrow frame of mind.
After a zombie apocalypse a band of survivors and a sheriff team up with a thinking zombie to get through the outbreak.
Also known as Walking with the Dead opening with a news reporter giving the possible cause of the zombie outbreak due to people not washing their hands after handling sushi you know what you're in for. It's surprisingly humorous and entertaining, to get the most out of director Scott Dow's The Walking Deceased you'll mostly likely have to be into beer, over the top lampooning parodies and have a toilet sense of humour. A knowledge of zombie films will help but it's probably essential to have seen The Walking Dead series and the film Warm Bodies.
Dave Sheridan's excellent over emotional mickey take of The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes is the films main highlight. Sheridan's Sheriff Lincoln hits all the notes, mimicking some of Grimes finest moments. His shouts for Carl and little speeches will make any viewer familiar with Rick Grimes chuckle. There's plenty of other Walking Dead characters on the spoof chopping board nearly all of which have been killed off in the series.
Yes, it's low budget, lowbrow stuff, from jabs at drugs, crossbows, social media including LinkedIn to stabs at strippers and prayer, you have to be in the right frame of mind. Dow's offering looks grander than it should thanks to some good direction, coupled with some blood and guts effects and Troy Ogletree's Romeo lone zombie is notable giving some amusing undead voice-over lines.
The opening 20 minutes of the spoof is probably the strongest, leave your brain at the door and familiarise yourself with the aforementioned films and you may get a kick out of this Romero send up. Worth seeing for Sheridan's bare butt sheriff using his pointing index finger as a gun alone.
