Dead and Breakfast

March 16, 2009

It’s not Shaun of the Dead, but it’s better than most

Another entry into the zombie/comedy genre, 2004’s Dead and Breakfast is a pretty good movie. The story started out a little slow, but after about the first 20 minutes it really picked up. It’s not Shaun of the Dead, but it came about the closest of anything I’ve seen recently. Funny lines and a great cast (Jeremy Sisto, Portia de Rossi, Erik Palladino, Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and more than enough blood to keep violent zombie movie fans satisfied.

There’s a scene in the movie where the heroes are holed up in the house trying to fend off the zombies and one of the characters chooses that time to confront her boyfriend about their relationship that I loved. She asks him a question and he asks her if maybe this isn’t the best time to be talking about this.

“Ha! There’s always some excuse for not wanting to talk about these things.”

“I think defending ourselves from being possessed by a demon spirit that’s now inhabiting your best friend’s cousin ranks pretty damn high on the list of good excuses for not wanting to analyze our relationship right now.”

I also loved the dancing zombies.

I rate this an 8 out of 10 and definitely recommend it to genre fans.
