Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Dead Set

2-3. I think the aesthetic hurts the content a bit (modern horrorisms like the shaky cam don't really do this series any favor), but it's generally a fun little zombie piece. Though I think it could have ran further with using zombies as a metaphor for deep investment in the media. I think the 'humorous' aspect would have also come in clearer with a bit less 'polish' and it would have justified the gore more.
