Dead Set (2008)

Directed by Yann Demange.  Written by Charlie Brooker.  Starring Jaime Winstone, Andy Nyman, Riz Ahmed, Warren Brown, Liz May Brice, Adam Deacon, Kevin Elden and Elyes Gabel.

Plot: a zombie outbreak occurs and a fictional reality show is unaware of the danger outside.


This was a 5-episode British serial that we didn’t ended up liking too much.  It all takes place in a Big Brother type house, where the contestants are late to find out that there’s a zombie outbreak outside.  The problems with it are that most of the people are either assholes or whiny assholes.  Everyone except Kelly (Winstone) really.  And there’s no Freddy Claws in the beginning.  It was a huge copy of Dawn of the Dead and not a very good one.  And the script was lacking.  I mean, did we really need to watch him shit in the bucket?  Also, that ending.  We sat through the whole thing for that shit?!  C’mon!!  What was the point of it all?

Good points equal boob shots, good effects, and good acting.  But that does not a good mini-series make.

Our score: 38.
