Not sure I needed the cutaways to that awful country singer, who spoon-feeds the narrative every now and then, while destroying the pacing. It’s different, but it’s not pleasant. Then again, it’s the only thing you’ll remember this film by a year from now. The characters are colorful, eccentric, and I wouldn’t call them stereotypes. The underdog becomes the star and the star, well, becomes no one.
Forty minutes in, I still had no clue what I was watching. As it turns out, and as you’ll realize if you’re patient, this is an unusual zombie flick with a pinch of slasherism. It’s a slapstick horror comedy with jokes right out of a sitcom. Some jokes feel like they were meant for someone else. Some jokes will make you piss your pants. The gore is hilarious and disproportionate.
The things Dead & Breakfast has in common with Night of the Living Dead, Shaun of the Dead, and Thriller make it interesting and fun. That said, I can’t help leaving this one with a bad after taste. It felt incomplete. It felt redundant. I never cared about the poorly assorted characters. I love musicals, but the music, here, rubbed me the wrong way.
