Cockney’s vs. Zombies is an hilarious new zombie comedy out of the UK and an absolute joy to watch.  It reminds me that zombie comedies (like the zombies themselves) will never die.  New to zombie comedies is the geriatric humour which is a good change of … pace.

The zombie apocalypse breaks out and two brothers have to go save their grandfather who lives in a retirement home.  It’s a self-aware zombie movie, so it skips all the usual questions of “what are they?” and “how do you kill them?” and jumps right into the fun of shooting zombies in the head.

Verdict: Go See It In Theaters
