Just as brothers Terry and Andy Macguire decide to rob a bank, workers on a Docklands building site uncover a burial ground sealed up in 1666. However some of the corpses aren’t Brown Bread at all and before you know it London’s East End is infested with hungry zombies. Can the two dodgy Hamptons get to the Bow Bells Care Home run by their granddad in time to rescue all the Raspberry Ripples under siege with only their Zimmer frames and wheelchairs to kick some zombie Khyber Pass? Take a Butchers at the hijacked Routemaster bus, the Thames ferryboat escape, Pussy Galore with an Uzi and Chas and Dave singing ‘Head to Head (With the Undead)’ over the closing credits. Would you Adam and Eve it!
Cockneys Vs Zombies, inevitably, is full of swearing, exploding heads and geysers of gore (in fact, Geezers of Gore would have been a good alternative title). Bear in mind, then, that the following red band trailer lives up to its name, and viewer discretion is strongly advised. You muppets.
Check out the trailer:
Cockneys Vs Zombies has its premiere at FrightFest on the 23rd August, and goes on general release on the 31st.
