In this day of easy low budget straight to video movies of any style (Especially horror or comedy), finding one that stands out is a long hard process. Deadheads is a gem to find. The characters are likable and funny as is the story. It's just a fun movie.
We watch a movie to be entertained right?! I was entertained! They're zombies with a heart, all mind you not beating, but you feel for them. It's a little horror, romance, it's comedy, it's silly, and it's damn good fun!
Great movie with an excellent storyline! The actors did a wonderful job from Michael McKiddy's portayal of the loveable goofball zombie to Ben Webster's amazing one-liners. I put this movie at the #2 position in my list of favorite zombie movies. Anyone who disagrees is mental.
Fun Zombie Comedy -- the 1st of it's kind. Not like Shaun of the Dead - these zombies can talk and make "Transformers: The Movie (1986)" references. Made independently by some horror movie fans who know how to make a movie look more expensive than it was. Funny, creative movie with surprising about of heart.
What do you get when you mix zombies, high school sweethearts, producers who love Repo man and Evil dead, and an old guy on a road trip with a mission? Deadheads of course! Oh, so funny, and sweet, not very scary but well worth watching!!!
One of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Some truly original ideas. Feels like something Bruce Campbell would have made if he had started making films in the 2010's. Flawlessly blends cheesy horror, comedy and big heart in one exquisite film. Sure there are some painful cliches, but it feels like they're mostly put in with a wink and a nod as part of the joke. The two main characters play very well off each other, and the supporting cast are awesome.
Very original. I was surprised how well I liked it. This movie takes place after a zombie outbreak but the main characters are zombies. The main character who has come back from the dead as a zombie is looking for his lost love, and he has a couple of zombie friends who want to help him. As the movie goes on we get glimpses of how he died. There is some very funny parts centered around the zombie point of view.
