A meteor shower hits a small fishing town in Australia and the locals spontaneously turn into flesh eating zombies.
And yes, we have a small group of survivors holing up in remote house in the woods, a gun toting Dirty Harry style hero and every other cliche associated with the genre. Essentially it’s 28 Days Later without the laughs, which considering it’s supposed to be a comedy is not a great start. Touting itself as the Australian Shaun Of The Dead it lacks all the wit and subtlety of that film, the script coming across as an ill-conceived sitcom with gratuitous blood and guts that the writers seemed to be making up as they went along. Throw in some Hot Fuzz style action cliches and a Twilight Zone style ending and you have an extensive hotch-potch of ideas, but not one of which is remotely original.
In a comedy, this of course does not matter as long as it’s funny. It isn’t.
