Film #219: DEADHEADS aka ZOMBIE HEADS
Deadheads (aka Zombie Heads)
1 out of 5 stars
In the deluge of zombie-related film projects and with the success of things like RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD and SHAUN OF THE DEAD, I guess it’s inevitable that shit heaps like DEADHEADS would get made. Directed by The Pierce Brothers (SNOOP DOGG’S HOOD OF HORROR), the films tries its damnedest to be ironic and referential, but it all falls flat on its face. Exceedingly low budget with its humor aimed squarely at the heart of a junior high school-aged stoner, DEADHEADS tries way too hard to be cute and is so poorly written as to be irritating. The characters are clichéd, the plot is derivative and ridiculously contrived. The film is lame, completely unfunny, and full of “out of the kit” gore FX. Skip it!
