Shotgun the best room...
25 January 2019 | by lojitsuSee all my reviews

Here's The Lowedown on "Dead Shack" (R - 2017 - US)...Shotgun the best room.

Genre: Horror/ZomCom My Score: 6.0

Cast=4 Acting=4 Plot=7 Ending=6 Story=6 Scare=6 Jump=5 F/X=7 Zombie=8 Funny=7

"Ketchup is not food, Ronald Reagan." There was some definite issues with the movie, but with a Zom-Com I want two main things...good zombie violence and cheesy one liners that make me laugh. I got those, so the movie was actually pretty fun. It's nowhere near one of my favorites...but if you lower your expectations it's a decent watch. Mad props go the best zombie fighting outfit ever...you'll see what I mean.
