When a bunch of East End bank robbers find themselves caught in the middle an outbreak of the undead on the streets of London, it’s every gangster for himself. One part SHAUN OF THE DEAD, one part SNATCH, and loaded with outrageous zombie kills, the latest hit zombie comedy from Britain is a shotgun blast of fun from start to finish!

London’s famous, or rather infamous, east end has seen its share of monsters: Jack the Ripper, the Kray Brothers, and now, zombies. But the zombies picked the wrong end of jolly old London town, as these East Enders won’t give up without a cracking good fight. From screenwriter James Moran (SEVERANCE, DOCTOR WHO) and director Matthias Hoene comes a hilarious new take on the zombie genre. Brothers Andy and Terry, in an effort to save their grandfather Ray’s quiet retirement home from being sold to condo developers, grab a few friends and attempt to rob a bank. Just as they’re about to escape with the loot, they find their way blocked by hordes of the undead, and must make their way to the retirement home, guns blazing. Meanwhile, Ray and his fellow retirees, with their East End bravado, must fight off another zombie horde, hip replacements and all. This film is destined to join the ranks of great horror comedies.
