  Doesn't hold back at all

| | See all MeMyselfandIagain's reviews (68)

It is an incredible zmbie mini series, there isn't really much newyou can do with zombies without making it look ridiculous and Dead Set just keeps it plain and simple, and who wouldn't want to see Davina as a zombie. It is a very original story and does get you laughing at points, it doesn't hold back either on the gore it just pours it on. This is definately one of the best new zombie films to be released, you can't put it in the same category as the originals because they were genre defining classics. But this definately shows that new zombie films can actually be good.

If you enjoy zombie films (and most of the reviewers here seem to do) - I can't see why you won't like this. The story, acting and particually the special effects/make up were really good. My slight gripe were some of the shots were a little hazy/shakey/sepia/blurred, but thats just me. Really good, will certainly watch it again

  Yet more zombies

Not at all bad but someone really needs to come up with an original idea for horror instead of viruses and zombies.Oh and please cast alikeable lead i.e not Jaime Winstone!lol.Overall not bad but (the great) Riz Ahmed should do more classics like 'Britz'.

I was not expecting much from this tv/ big brother spin on the zombie movies, but this is actually bloody very good, and also a very clever biting satire. How could anybody resist the thought of davina mccall having her throat biten out, in full bloody glory, then being resurrected from the dead as a rabid zombie. If only the same fate could happen to jade goody! Big brother has had it's day and is as stale as a rotting corps. But this version is fresh and very original. The zombies are great, similar in the make up as shawn of the dead, but are as fast as the rage infected of 28 days/ weeks later and the excellent 2004 remake of dawn of the dead. Of cause this tv production is limited with it's strings tied to a tv budget, but every second counts, in this hand held camera shocker. Very bloody, very funny, very original and very good.
If you are a zombie fan, this is well worth adding to your horror collection.
