Bruce Campbell endorses: DeadHeads
IMDB: DeadHeads (2011)
Two inexplicably coherent zombies awake amidst a zombie attack and decide to take a road trip to find the one's lost love, unaware they are being chased by the agents of a ruthless company with it's own agenda.
Stars: Michael McKiddy, Ross Kidder, Markus Taylor, Thomas Galasso, Natalie Victoria
Written and Directed by Brett Pierce, Drew T. Pierce
"As the sons of Bart Pierce, special effects photographer of The Evil Dead, Brett and Drew T Pierce have a certain degree of family heritage to live up to. This is clearly not lost on them, given that they’ve found room for a scene watching Evil Dead at the drive-in, and grabbed themselves the endorsement of the mighty Bruce himself. But let’s not dismiss Deadheads as nothing more than the work of Hollywood brats coasting on the coattails of their parents Julian Lennon style. First off, if anything they’re Michigan brats. Second, and most importantly, the Pierce Brothers have done something that very few zombie films manage or even attempt; taken a genuinely fresh and unexpected approach to the subgenre. As a zom-rom-com, comparisons with Shaun of the Dead are of course inevitable, but as a zombie road trip buddy movie it’s something else entirely."
