7DM Studios have released the trailer for Drew Cullingham’s zomedy horror SHED OF THE DEAD, starring Spencer Brown, Ewen Macintosh, Lauren Socha, Emily Booth, Kane Hodder, Michael Berryman, Bill Mosely and Brian Blessed.
An ‘urban fear’ grips the tenants of an inner city allotment when the long-predicted apocalypse finally arrives. Gardeners of all levels of green-fingered ability and produce-preference are afraid to venture onto their plots, especially late at night. And, even when they can summon enough courage to do so, there is no safety in numbers, for the dead have risen from the depths beneath the cabbage patch and the rows of sweet peas, hell bent on mischief, mayhem and consumption of the living.
Only the nimble fingered “figurine war-gamer” Trevor, aka ‘Casimir the Destroyer’, and his best friend, the knightly “Sir Brandt”, stand between the devilish hordes of undead and the salvation of mankind – well at least in their alter-ego fantasies they do. Until of course one dark night, as they look beyond the confines of Trevor’s little wooden shed, they discover the world has truly fallen into the hands of the undead – particularly Trevor’s allotment tenant neighbours. Now Trevor must venture into the unknown to save his wife, Bobbi, and in so doing become the hero he has always fantasised he was.
SHED OF THE DEAD is a fast-paced, urban comedy-horror; a geek-fest of zomedy, with a firmly planted tongue-in-cheek for the genre. Definitively in the same playground as the ubiquitous SHAUN OF THE DEAD, yet with a darker, irreverent seam of adult humour, there’s little doubt that this narrative would also sit well between THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN and THE EVIL DEAD films.
