Reviews [click links to read more]:
“Overall, this was a well-written and directed film. The cinematography is fantastic with every angle being taken full advantage of. The special effects were not too shabby either […] however, some of the computer-generated scenes may have benefited from a bit more practical effects.” GoresTruly
” …a movie that lives up to its catchy name. The soundtrack and overall style of this movie is grounded in rockabilly culture, but it’s also a zombie film. This contrast felt organic, the two different elements worked well together to create a fun ride worth taking.” Curt Wiser, Letterboxd
“The plot here isn’t the problem. It’s the duller than “Living Dead” dialogue […] If you’re calling your movie Rockabilly Zombie Weekend you ought to deliver more rockabilly, more rednecks and more fun than this.” Roger Moore, Movie Nation
The film is available as Rockabilly Zombie Weekend on Amazon Prime Video.
Dead Wedding is being distributed by Wild Eye Releasing
