Review: ‘Shed of the Dead’ Should Satisfy Fans of the Zombie Subgenre



Review: 'Shed of the Dead' Should Satisfy Fans of the Zombie Subgenre

Trevor is an unemployed man who spends his days hiding from his wife in an allotment shed and escaping into a fantasy world. He is forced to take on at least a small level of responsibility when the zombie apocalypse happens.

Shed of the Dead was much better than I expected it to be. The characters all feel genuine and the dialogue flows in a natural way. This is pretty uncommon for a zombie movie.

The biggest surprise was the impressive cameos. Big horror names like Michael Berryman, Bill Moseley and Kane Hodder make appearances. Fans of these three should certainly check Shed of the Dead out.

The central cast is made up of well-known British faces Lauren Socha, Emily Booth and Ewen MacIntosh who do a good job of supporting lead actor Spencer Brown. Viewers might remember seeing him being inseminated by a giant eyeball in Garth Marenghi’s Dark Place.

Overall, Shed of the Dead is an enjoyable and funny movie that should satisfy fans of the zombie subgenre. The biggest flaw is that at times it feels derivative of Shaun of the Dead. However, the film eventually finds its feet and establishes its individuality.
