The Walking Deceased DVD Review

The Walking Deceased DVD

“The Walking Deceased” is a laugh-free spoof.

With zombie media all the rage these days, it was only a matter of time before a spoof film would be released upon the masses. Enter the low budget indie “The Walking Deceased” which is primarily a parody of “The Walking Dead,” “Warm Bodies,” “Zombieworld,” and “Dawn of the Dead.” This “comedy” revolves around a dumb Sheriff and his son, two scavengers, a self-aware zombie, a Daryl Dixon knockoff, sisters, and married ranchers and their stoner daughter facing off against zombies.

To say the spoof genre has been dire as of late is an understatement. Aside from the underrated “Undercover Brother,” we’ve been subjected to horrific spoofs such as “Meet The Spartans” and “Disaster Movie.” “The Walking Deceased” merely follows in the long line of unbearably unfunny spoofs. Screenwriter Tim Ogletree tries so hard to be funny here as he pours on jokes about the internet, pizza, humans being shot, porn, the Carl character from “The Walking Dead,” and Selena Gomez. Alas, every single line in the movie feels like a bad joke tweet. To make matters worse, the writer merely mimics scenes from films or shows and adds slow-motion to numerous scenes to fill up screentime because there is barely a plot to be found here.

In terms of the zombie action, “The Walking Deceased” is surprisingly light on the zombies. The zombie gore and makeup we do get is decent enough, but having to sit through a movie full of no humor to get to them is not worth it.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: Widescreen. How does it look? The respectable cinematography by Shaun Hart is one of the film’s few highlights.

Audio Track: Dolby Digital 5.1. How does it sound? Between the sometimes bad sound f/x and the inconsistent dialogue recordings, the actual sound in this film is mediocre at best. The DD track does the best it can here, but don’t expect much.

Extras:
* 5 deleted scenes.
* “The Walking Deceased” trailer.
* Two behind the scenes featurettes titled “Cast and Crew” and “Zombies.”
