Premiere: 04/29/2011 at the Newport Beach Film Festival
Starring: Michael McKiddy, Ross Kidder, and Markus Taylor
Director/Writer: Brett Pierce & Drew T. Pierce
Plot: DEADHEADS is a “zombedy” that is sure to impress–pleasing both horror and action-adventure fans alike. Yup, you heard it first. Horror, meets comedy, meets action adventure!
DEADHEADS is a return to the great comedy/adventure films of the 80′s like “Back to the Future” and the “Goonies”. The story follows two zombie slackers, Mike and Brent, who find themselves surprisingly reborn from the dead amid a disastrous zombie outbreak. After discovering an engagement ring in his coat pocket, Mike enlists his new found zombie pal, Brent, to embark on a quest in search of his lost love.
What ensues is a hilarious cross country road trip as these two reformed flesh-eating pals hitchhike cross country as they are pursued by a team of zombie killin’ bounty hunters!

Thoughts: I love horror comedies! And this one looks promising. It’s an Indie feature with no studio backing so at this moment in time, its premiere is at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Its first showing is this Friday, April 29, 2011 and it’s already sold out, but if you’re in the area or headed to the film festival, you can catch the encore, Tuesday, May 3, 2011. I want to go!
