Please welcome the newest member of the “Best Title Ever” department: “Stag Night of the Dead!”
(It also scores very high in the “Best Tag Line Ever” category, although for me, the primary “Six stags, one stripper, a million zombies – you do the math(s)” takes a definite back seat to the understated-but-insightful “When there’s no more room in Hell…you get married.”)
“SNotD” is one of those films that you’ll learn about and either really anticipate watching, or decide that it doesn’t exactly sound like your cup of tea. If you’re in the camp of those who still want to see the film – and you damn well should be, if you enjoy zombies, comedy, guns, and girls (and not necessarily in that order) – after you’ve seen it, you’ll be genuinely glad that you did.
It’s a film made by some British folk who, quite frankly, knew what they were doing and did it pretty damn well. “SNotD” swims in a sea of independently-made zombie movies, but it floats where others sink thanks to the attention to detail given by the filmmaker’s creators and their crew.
