Night of the Living Deb
October 8th, 2015
Director: Kyle Rankin
Writer: Andy Selsor
Starring: Michael Cassidy, Ray Wise, Maria Thayer, Syd Wilder
MPAA Rating: NR
The morning after an ill-advised drunken hookup, Deb and her hunky one-night stand, Ryan, wake up with regret — and facing a zombie apocalypse.
After a girls’ night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. She’s thrilled, but she can’t remember much of what got her there….
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!
IMDB Rating: 5.5 out of 10 stars!
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 80%
This movie was released on DVD, and Netflix, it didn’t have a theatrical release and thus no movie rating was given.
Typically I don’t watch a lot of scary movies, this movie is not scary. It’s funny in a slapstick comedy spoof of other zombie movies. The very beginning was difficult to get through quietly, I cringed hard, Deb is very awkward and every sentence that is delivered sounds like she wants to be that nerdy cool girl who speaks in movie quotes, only movie quotes, seemingly out of no where and bursts into dialogue unwarranted.
However, if you can get through the first fifteen minutes (give or take) then the movie gets much better, so much better. We follow Deb and Ryan waking up after a night of drinking and a bad decision, he is after all engaged, for all of five minutes. The following morning however they find everyone in their city has turned into Zombies, and try to make it to his parent’s home to figure out their next move. Over all, good movie, definitely worth a watch.
