Zombie Film Friday: Dead Set (2008 TV Series)

Okay so Dead Set isn’t a movie but it’s still a decent example of some Zombie goodness. For those of you who are fans of reality TV, this one may hold a special place in your heart! Check it out, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

It’s eviction night at the Big Brother house, but something very strange is happening; the dead are coming alive and attacking the living. When zombies attack all of the audience outside, the Big Brother contestants are unaware of the death outside the fan-proof (and zombie-proof) big brother house until the show’s runner, Kelly, comes into the house and warns them of the doom outside. Stuck with even less contact with the outside world, the house-mates must sneak out of the house to get supplies, without being seen by the zombies.

My Rating: A-

Interesting Facts: Charlie Brooker (the writer) makes a cameo as a zombie; the show is set within a fictional series of Big Brother using the actual sets, logo-stints and even some of the presenters playing themselves and there are heavy references to the show in every episode;  when Kelly runs outside, she jumps into a blue truck, but when she realizes the keys aren’t in the ignition, she gets out and slams the trucks door shut. In the next shot the door is suddenly wide open.

And now it’s time for the trailer!

Get in on the action!
