Cockneys vs Zombies (2012) is a British zombie comedy written by James Moran and Lucas Roche and directed by Matthias Hoene. Starring Harry Treadaway, Rasmus Hardiker, Michelle Ryan, Richard Briers, Honor Blackman, and Alan Ford.
When some down-on-their-luck old-timers are at risk of losing their home to developers, a group of young, inept criminals decide to take matters into their own hands. The only thing standing in their way? A zombie outbreak in London! Now, it’s up to a bunch of east-enders to fight their way out of the zombie-infested city, led by an unlikely gang of amateur bank robbers and foul-mouthed, plucky pensioners.
Girls, guns or zombies? Safe-cracking Cockney girls, guns and zombies!
Rated R. 88 minutes. Watch the red band trailer here:
My thoughts… Cockneys vs Zombies is like Shaun of the Dead (2004) as if directed by Guy Ritchie! It’s a zombie comedy mixed with a crime thriller that delivers plenty of likable characters, action, laughs, and cool zombie kills! Cockneys vs. Zombies would fit quite nicely on a double-bill with Dutch zom-com Kill Zombie! (2012). Oh, and Michelle Ryan is soooo bad-ass!
