The Revenant

3

A zom-com about a pair of mates with a thirst for blood

When is a zombie not a zombie?

When he’s a revenant – a fast-talking, slow-decomposing corpse dossing on his best mate’s couch.

The second feature from VFX artist D Kerry Prior is a sharp, dark, but over-reaching buddy movie-cum-vigilante actioner, which flirts with Groundhog Day pathos before finishing as military satire.

The film’s anchored by great turns from David Anders and Chris Wylde as the dead heads, but it’s the big ideas that it wrestles with that lurch it into smart, funny and moving life.
