A virulent strain of mad cow disease infects the Irish countryside, turning the locals into flesh eating zombies in this hilarious zombie comedy from newcomer Connor McMahon.
Unawhere of the impending danger around them, Helena (Marian Arujo) and her boyfriend Martin are driving round the area trying to find a hotel, when they accidentally run over a man staggering around in the road. However, they are extremely surprised when the dead person suddenly sits bolt upright and attacks them, leaving Martin lying in a pool of blood and Helena running for her life.
Hooking up with a local man named Desmond, who works nearby as a grave digger, and a foul mouthed Irish couple who’s 4x4 has broken down, they attempt to fight their way through the hordes of zombies as they try to make it to the next village in search of help.
Done in much the same vein as Peter Jackson’s “Bad Taste” and “Brain Dead”, my initial thoughts were "Bloody Hell, an IRISH zombie film, whatever next?" But although the film, admittedly, did start rather slowly, once it got going it didn't take too long to win me over, as soon as the zombie bashing fun began.
Proving to be very tongue on cheek, and featuring plenty of zombie mayhem, rabid cows and foul mouthed Irishmen aplenty. It’s clear that the director knows his zombie films as there are notable references to films like “Night of the Living dead”, “Living Dead at Manchester Morgue”, “Cemetery Man” and “The Crazies” etc etc. If you’re a fan of independent low budget films you’ll have a blast with this one.
