It’s all silly, maybe even goofy, but it is done in fun. This is a movie you shouldn’t watch alone—not because it’s scary, but because the more people watching together, the more fun it is. Yes, of course beer wouldn’t hurt. Isn’t that what the “B” in “B-movies” stands for?
Leading the cast are Teddy Chen Culver and Shawn Parikh as software engineers (the bottom of the food chain) and Christina July Kim as their project manager. The actors are all in on the joke and seem to have enjoyed making the film.
Office of the Dead is not on the level of Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland, but—taken at face value—it’s entertaining. It’s not a film I’d be happy paying $10 to see, though. The DVD includes interviews, bloopers, a trailer, and coming attractions.
Bottom Line: Would I buy/rent/stream Office of the Dead?This is a film I would definitely wait to see streaming free from Netflix; younger audiences might enjoy renting it for pizza night.
