A hilarious first trailer has been released for Drew Cullingham’s Shed of the Dead and it looks like it’s going to be wickedly fun. In similar fashion to Shaun of the Dead, the film pokes fun at the zombie horror in a knowing, intelligent and loving way.
Trevor is ‘between jobs’. He spends his days avoiding his nagging heifer of a wife by hiding out in his allotment shed and painting figurines for his wargames with his agoraphobic friend, Graham, and dreaming of his heroic alter-ego, the battle mage Casimir the Destroyer. When Mr Parsons, one of the other allotment tenants, petitions to have Trevor removed from his disgrace of a plot (he’s not there to grow stuff!) an argument ensues that leaves Trevor with a corpse to hide. Unfortunately, this untimely accident coincides with the zombie apocalypse and Mr Parsons’ return is just the beginnings of Trevor’s problems. More pressing is whether or not he should try and save his wife and her beautiful best friend, who both he and Graham have a thing for.
Shed of the Dead stars Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Michael Berryman, Brian Blessed (sort of), Lauren Socha and Emily Booth. Look out for a release date soon and enjoy the trailer for now.
