The Walking Deceased (2015) film review. Translucent Entertainment, Aristar Entertainment. Directed by Scott Dow. Distributed by Signature Entertainment UK. Certificate 15, running time 88 minutes.
Sheriff Lincoln wakes after being in a coma for 5 weeks, after being knocked unconscious by a rogue softball hit by his son Chris. Finding out a zombie apocalypse has happened, determined to find his family, he meets up with other survivors at the mall. With the zombies seemingly being more intelligent than the survivors.
Part of this does work, Dave Sheridan as Sheriff Lincoln is brilliant, over emphasising every word in a southern accent like "I'm going to find my family they're alivvvveeee "and referring to his son Chris as " Carrlll" all the time, is the funniest part of this film, and when he leaves the hospital for the first time, and seeing the young girl with the teddy, and shoots her in the head, even though she is not a zombie, is terrible, but also very funny in a bad taste of way. The Zombieland part is just not funny and becomes annoying very early on,same as the Warm Bodies part.
The Walking Dead references all work, and are witty, not hilarious but still funny, Andrew Pozza as Darnell firing a kids crossbow that fires suction darts, and actually believing to be making a difference is funny. The film in the end is a watchable farce, but is just that, it has some witty moments, and I did chuckle in a few places, but that was it, it wasn't clearly as funny as the scrip writers and directors thought it would be, and the funniest part of the movie is the outtakes at the end of the movie.
